[edit] Identification

To be able to create/edit pages, you need to create a login name on the Wiki. At this time, the login name is not linked with your MacMusic login name. Nevertheless, we strongly suggest you to use the same login name.

[edit] Starting a new Page

  • In the Lexicon, a word is displayed in red, it means it has no definition yet:
    • Click on the red word,
    • You are automatically in edition mode, enter your definition,
    • Click on "Show Preview", you can still modify but it is not saved,
    • Click on "Save Page".

  • Here is the easyest way to create a new page from nothing:
    • From any page, click the "edit" tab
    • type [[Page name]] ("Page name" is the name of the page you want to create)
    • click on "Show preview"
    • Page name will appear in red (as an undefined link). Whithout pressing "save page", click on this red link. It will bring you to the blank "Page name" page.
    • just fill this new page, and save.

  • You can also create a page by typing an URL in your browser URL field. Just type 

then hit the return key

[edit] Page layout

To save time on corrections, write you article with an automatic spell checker on. For example in Safari: switch on Menu Edition/spelling/Verify spelling while typing. It won't do everything (like tenses) but at least the words not in the dictionary will be highlighted..

[edit] Page sections

  • To make a section (like "Page layout") type ==Section Name== with "==" before and after the section name.
  • To make a sub section (like "Page sections") ===Sub Section Name===, etc.
  • You can also add an horizontal line with "----".
  • A summary is automatically added at the beginning to articles with more than 3 sections.

[edit] Lists

  • If you want to make a list like this one here:
    • type * at the line beginning,
    • retype * at the line beginning,
      • type ** at the line beginning,
        • etc.
  • To indent with numbers :
    1. type # at the line beginning,
    2. retype #,
      1. type ##
      2. retype ##
        1. ###etc.

    • if the destination page doesn't exist, you will see a red link
  • To get a link title different from the link itself, use the following syntax: [[link name|link title]]. Notice the "|" between the link and the title.
    • The "link name" is the item you want to link to (it is a word wich is/will be defined), the "link title" is the word appearing in you article which will point to the "link name".
    • To type a "|", type Option+Shift+L
