To create an external link to another website, you can simply add the website's url and the wiki will automatically convert it into a link (make sure you include <nowiki>http://</nowiki>), for example simple typing <nowiki>http://www.google.com</nowiki> appears as http://www.google.com.  If you want to add an external link without displaying the full url, use a single square bracket and add the text you want to display after the url, for example <nowiki>[http://www.google.com Google]</nowiki> appears as [http://www.google.com Google].

Editing

To edit this wiki, simply click "edit" at the top right of the page you wish to edit. That will bring up the editing page where you can make the changes as necessary.

Links

You can add a new page simply by creating a link. To create a link simply type [[Name of new page]] and it will appear as a red link (Name of new page). Click the red link and (if you're logged in) it will take you to that new page where you can add or edit it as you like.

If you wish to add a link to a page that already exists, just simply put square brackets around the name of the page. For example a link to the Main Page would simply be [[Main Page]] appearing as Main Page. The software will take care of the linking for you. Please note that links are case-sensitive, [[main page]] is not the same as [[Main Page]].

To create an external link to another website, you can simply add the website's url and the wiki will automatically convert it into a link (make sure you include http://), for example simple typing http://www.google.com appears as http://www.google.com. If you want to add an external link without displaying the full url, use a single square bracket and add the text you want to display after the url, for example [http://www.google.com Google] appears as Google.
