An easy way to start contributing to this wiki is by editing an existing page. For example, if you participated in a meeting for which the minutes are recorded on the wiki by other participants, you may want to edit the minutes page by adding your name to the list of attendees for the meeting and/or add some information to an action item that was assigned to you. In either case, you need to go to the page you wish to edit:

  • Click on the Edit tab at the top. You will be presented with an editing box containing the contents of the page. *Scroll down to the part that you want to correct, or add to, and make your changes.
  • After making your changes, click on the Show preview button below the edit box to check your work. If all looks good, click on the Save page button.

When logging in the first time to the wiki you will want to review and potentially edit your user page. To do so, click on the link towards the top right of the screen that is labeled with your userid. This is a page that is automatically created by the wiki for your personal information. To edit this page:

  • Click on the Edit tab at the top.
  • Review your full name, email address, and contact phone number in the empty editing box. If any information is incorrect, or you would like to provide further information you may do so.
  • Click on Save page button, and you will have edited your first page on this wiki.


Editing by running a script

Instead of editing within the wiki, you can run the following script on any AFS Linux client, which will take a file which is already marked-up WikiText and/or HtML (created using an editor), and place that file on the wiki with the page name that is supplied to the script.

/usr/ucs/bin/importTextFile

For usage :
/usr/ucs/bin/importTextFile -h

Since /usr/ucs/bin is in the standard PATH, "importTextFile" can be used instead of "/usr/ucs/bin/importTextFile".
