Wikis in Plain English

Que es un Wiki?

Always remember the wiki basics:

  • It is more about the content than about who wrote the content
  • If you make a mistake, don't worry. You can always look at the History Tab of the page you are working on to find a previous version of the page and restore it
  • The "Recent Changes" link in the upper left is your friend - it helps you see what is new
  • You can use the Discussion Tabs if you don't want comments in a content oriented page
  • PLAY! We have set up a wiki page "sandbox" for you to try out and experiement with adding content to the wiki
