You have reached a TWikiSite (pronounced twee-kee site). TWiki is a meeting place where people collaborate on common interests. Anyone can contribute using a regular Web browser. TWiki looks like a normal Web site, but it allows (and ecourages) everyone to edit the web pages and contribute their questions and input. It really is very simple to learn and use, and provides possibly the most powerful way to exchange and develop ideas online, in an open, uncomplicated environment.

You have reached a TWikiSite (pronounced twee-kee site). TWiki is a meeting place where people collaborate on common interests. Anyone can contribute using a regular Web browser. TWiki looks like a normal Web site, but it allows (and encourages) everyone to freely edit the pages by contributing questions, answers, comments, changes - ideas can be transformed into published input, instantly. TWiki is very simple to learn and use, and provides possibly the most powerful way to exchange and develop ideas online, in an open, uncomplicated environment.
  How TWiki Works
Line: 10 to 10
 
    • topic: Each web is made up of hyperlinked topics - TWikiPages that appear in your browser.
    • What's new: Visit WebChanges in any TWiki web to see what other people are discussing and what's been added most recently.
  1. Create an Account: To be able to write new content on this site, you'll need to create an account for yourself. It's simple, and only takes a minute: just visit TWikiRegistration and fill out the form. This will also create your personal home page.

  1. Write: If you have something to say, speak your mind! Anyone can change or add to anything they see written in a TWiki topic. You can edit a topic from within your browser, using TWikiShorthand, a very simple markup language (you can also use HTML if you like, but you'll usually find you can get the same results more easily with TWikiShorthand). To contribute,
    • click the Edit link at the bottom of the page, edit the text, and then
    • click the [ Preview Changes ] button at the bottom of the page to see what your topic will look like (use the BACK button on your browser to go back and fix something.), and finally
    • click the [ Save Changes ] to save what you did.
  2. But this is scary! Anybody can do anything! The concept at first may seem...strange. Uncontrollable. And yet, collaborating the Wiki way works! See WikiCulture. (You can define fine-grained TWikiAccessControl based on users groups if really necessary, and there's full revision control that retains all changes!)
  3. Experiment: To get your virtual hands dirty, visit Test in the TWiki.Test web.

  2. Do you find this...scary?! Anybody can do anything! That's not how things are usually done. It's...uncontrollable. And yet, collaborating in the Wiki way works! Try it out for even a couple of minutes. Take a look at WikiCulture. (And then, with TWiki, you can define fine-grained TWikiAccessControl, based on users and groups, whenever and wherever you feel its necessary, across a site, a web, or page by page, if you like. And there's also full revision control that retains all changes, for good measure!)
  3. Experiment: To get your virtual hands dirty, visit Test web, where you can try out anything at all, in a consequence-free environment!
 
  1. Create a link: To link to another topic, start by editing an existing topic.

    • To create a link to a topic that already exists, type its JoinCapitalizedWords name (topics are automatically linked if they are WikiWords, names composed of two or more words with initial capitals, run together).
    • To create a link to a page that does not yet exist, make up and enter a NeverBeforeUsedPhrase. You are encouraged to include WikiWords in your content, for others to fill out later.

    • When you've saved the topic, and redisplayed it, the references to existing topics will be linked and the references to topics that don't exist will be followed by a linked "?" (question mark).
  1. Create a topic:
    • To write something up for a new topic, click on the "?" (question mark) that follows a WikiWord.
Line: 26 to 26
 
  1. See the history of a topic: Click the Diffs link on the control strip at the bottom of every page to see a complete history of edits for that topic.
  2. Attach files: Use your browser to upload and attach any type of file to a topic using the Attach link at the bottom of the page.
  3. Organize: Use TWikiForms to include specific information with individual topics - for example, classify pages by subject, status, or date.
