Great idea to use a Wiki for the manual, thanks.

I might be a little dense, but all I seem to be able to do is edit an existing page; How do I add a page?

TIA.

Thanks, but now I really feel dense. How do I go to a page that doesn't yet exist?

I previously edited the Category: As a Moderator page and added the last item in this list:

"Moderators can:

    * Delete topics and replies to topics.
    * Move topics to another board.
    * Split posts out of a topic to create a new topic.
    * Sticky a topic placing the topic on the top of a board
    * Merge topics into one topic.
    * Rename topics (aka change subject lines)."

Now I want to create a page to explain how to rename topics, and have it show up under "R". But I don't see a link such as "add page".

bascially, in the previous pge, add your link and then click on it. In a wiki, if you attempt to access a page which doesn't exist, it gives you the option to create that page.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support forums.  Thank you.

OK thanks both. I was able to create the page by clicking on 'Rename topics', but I don't see how to get it to show up under 'R' in the list of pages.

Tried to access the wiki but...
Code: [Select]
A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:

    (SQL query hidden)

from within function "User::addToDatabase". Database returned error "1062: Duplicate entry ' Jojo ' for key 'user_name' (10.0.100.10)".
:(
Is there probably a problem with user names that contain underscores? Mediawiki replaces all underscores by space chars.
This is still happening btw..

This Wiki is great! :D I will try to help with it as much as I can. :D
My Mods

Sugested that too. Hey ho. I'd link you to the original discussion but it's not visible to most people (seekrit team board stuff that is more dangerous than wikileaks).


Don't PM me for support! Use the appropriate support board!

It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.
