Just go to the /index.php main page, then alter the URL by adding the name of the page you want to the end, eg...

http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/My Page

It will replace characters like space and backets so that the URL is valid and then display a page that says that item doesn't exist, but gives you an option for creating the page. Go from there....

(wow, actually sounded like I knew what I was talking about! created my first one yesterday :) )

Heh, yeah, I found it in the wiki refcard... Thanks!

Now for the big question:

I have about 2200 lines of code... in about 8 modules..

what would be the best way to add them to the wiki?
create seperate pages for each module? or
imbed the code directly on the page?

FYI, my page is at:http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Setting_Up_PLM_Template

The page should be structured in the format that's most readable to an interested user. So the content determines the structure. Your list of steps looks like it should include all of the code in one page. But probably you should upload the files (and maybe a tarfile of all of them together) to the wiki using the "Upload file" link in the "toolbox" area in the left column of the wiki pages. Then link to the files embedded at the appropriate places in the page. You might also make a page for each module, with a little more docs, and the full text of the code for that module, and a link to the file for download. That will give readers both browseable code, and easily downloaded version.

Thanks for doing all this, including wiking it.

Mathew,

Thanks for the help.. I've added all my code to the wiki now. (as seperate wiki links)

This seems to be the easiest way, as the user has to copy/paste anyway.

I'm not the best wiki guy.. if anyone wants to 'enhance' that page, please, feel free to!

I'm still trying to make sure I haven't forgotten any steps...  If anyone sees a step I've missed, can you please add it?

Thanks

Dan

That's how wikis work - people improve them, even if just formatting. Just getting the good info up there in public is the most important. So as soon as you've got something nailed down, wiki it, and post a notice in a forum so people can discuss and improve it. There's lots of people in this growing community who can't develop the system, but could improve the wiki content once it's got the right info. Which in turn helps others join the community, more of whom can improve the code.
