Okay, so if your like me you know what a wiki is for and how the articles should generally go. But I am a little confused at the interface and how exactly I go about posting content into the wiki.

Can we get a quick tutorial on how to go about adding articles. Nothing major, just the basics.

Thanks! cool.gif

Ok, we're up and running !

The link to the wiki is:

http://guitarmasterclass.net/wiki (it still needs a bit of a makeover but it is in place and functioning well smile.gif

Also, Maris has already written some quick start instructions here:

http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/wiki/inde...p/Help:Contents

Thanks a lot Maria!

That should get everyone started at least - take a look at the template articles and try and structure your articles in a similar way.

Lets see how it works out smile.gif

Regards,

Andrew

The "Templates..." in each category are generated by the wiki script whenever a link to a non-existing page is inserted. Here is an easy guide to getting your first article on the wiki.

1.) Go to the section where you want to put your article. (I went to "Gear" for this example)

2.) Up at the top you'll see an address like this "http://guitarmasterclass.net/wiki/index.php/Portal:Gear".

3.) Type your article name after the address using /articlename. So I wanted to write an article and call it Tubes under the Gear section. So i typed it into my address bar and it looked like this: "http://guitarmasterclass.net/wiki/index.php/Portal:Gear/Tubes". Then hit enter.

4.) If the article isn't already made you should get a message that says: "There is currently no text in this page, you can search for this page title in other pages or edit this page." Click the "search for this page title" link.

5.) You will then be taken to the Search engine within wiki and at the top you should see "Create this page" link . Click that then paste your article (may want to start with a template first).

That should get you started. If you need help getting the article to show up in the correct section let me know, I can help. See the Gear section for how I started laying it out as an example.

Cool - I'll reference this post in the Wiki Guidelines when I write them up.

Regarding Portals - a portal is really just a category. I have discussed a structure with Kris which just consists of some high level concepts like Gear, GMC, Reviews etc - its a lot like the board structure in fact.

The portals are just starting points on the main page - the Wiki system is really cool, as it will create categories by itself once we get going with the content! biggrin.gif

Wow
Looks like you really figured it out Hardtail smile.gif .For me though i've never did anything like this (wiki) and im very lost right now sad.gif .Writting the article isnt the problem,but trying to find were to do all this cutting and pasting and templete's is my prob.
I want to do a article on how to modify your electric guitar''.I type electric guitar in search and nothing comes up so i dont even know where to put it or how to get where i need to start typing tongue.gif Since i already have said the title i will be using is there anyway someone can help me get started?Like get it set-up through wiki and then just send me a link where i can start typing.I just really want to get started and feel i can write several articles but not knowing how to get where i can just write is really slowing me down .So anybody that can help me get to the point of just writting the article would be much apperictaed.

P.S sorry im so behind on knowing how to do all this stuff.I really dont know awhole lot about computer's and programs tongue.gif

Dan, if you follow my instructions above you should be fine BUT... you may want to copy a template first. To do this go to this link:

General Template

Click the VIEW SOURCE at the top of the screen. Then copy the entire contents of the source into your computers clipboard. (or just select it all and hit CTRL-C).

Then follow my instructions and when you get to step 5 click the "Create this page" link and then paste the template into the editor (CTRL-V or right click and select paste).

A lot of it is in script but if you keep previewing it you should be able to tell where different text is etc. Wiki editors really aren't that bad once you get working in them.

This is working for my test user and Hardtail - so Andrew it must be because you have special permissions as a moderator etc.

Have you tried with your testuser?

Either way I should have a solution for this coming up - I have just emailed Henrik.

Hi Kris,

I followed Hardtails instructions but I went to create anew page and I got the error;

"The action you have requested is limited to users in one of the groups Members, Root Admin, Administrators, Wiki-sysops."

So im guessing I havent been added to the correct group yet ! smile.gif
