Welcome to TWiki! This is a TWikiSite (pronounced twee-kee site), a meeting place to work on common interests. Anyone can contribute using any web browser. TWiki looks like a normal Web site... except that it encourages contribution and editing of pages, questions, answers, comments and updates.

Mission: "TWiki is a leading-edge, web-based collaboration platform targeting the corporate intranet world. TWiki fosters information flow within an organization; lets distributed teams work together seamlessly and productively; and eliminates the one-webmaster syndrome of outdated intranet content."

Welcome to TWiki! This is a TWikiSite (pronounced twee-kee site), a meeting place to work on common interests. Anyone can contribute using any web browser. TWiki looks like a normal web site... except that it encourages contribution and editing of pages, questions, answers, comments and updates.
  "Wiki" systems are fundamentally editable web pages. It's a fun and useful way of communicating asynchronously over the web for many existing intranet and public Internet sites. TWiki is simple to learn and use. It aims to provide a transparent way for you to publish and exchange your ideas with others over the web.

  1. Browse. This is a site like other sites. Read and follow interesting links.
    • Web: A TWikiSite is divided into webs, each one represents an area for collaboration. This site has the following webs: Main, SPhenix, TWiki
    • Topic: Each web is made up of hyperlinked topics that appear in your browser.
    • WebChanges: In each TWiki web to find what's new
  2. Write. Speak your mind! From your browser you can change or add to anything you see in a TWiki topic. Use regular text or TWikiShorthand. To contribute:
    • Create An Account. To be able to edit or write new content, you'll need to create an account for yourself. It's simple, and only takes a minute. TWikiRegistration This will also create your personal home page.

    • click [ Preview Changes ] at the bottom to verify the topic (use your brower's Back button if necessary)
    • click [ Save Changes ]
  3. Don't worry! It can be scary at first to change "public" content. Please just try it. Revision control keeps all content, nothing is lost. For special cases, access control is available yet you may find you don't need it in most cases. You'll soon see how successful WikiCulture works in this kind of collaboration environment. This is new. Just try to relax.
  4. Experiment. Edit your personal page or visit the Sandbox web.
    1. Link. To link to another topic, start by editing an existing topic.
      • To create a link to an existing topic type its JoinCapitalizedWords name. WikiWords (two or more capitalized words run together) link automatically.
    2. Create a new topic. To create a new topic, start by editing an existing topic.
      • In an existing topic, create a link to a new topic, entering a newly UsedPhrase as a WikiWord.
      • After saving the existing topic you will see a question mark link "?" behind the WikiWord.
      • Click on the question mark to create the new topic.
    3. Topic history. Click History at the bottom of a topic
    4. Attach files. Click Attach to upload and attach any type of file.
  5. Organize. You can learn to use TWikiForms and FormattedSearches to include topic information - for example, classify pages by subject, status, or date.
  6. Learn more. TWikiTutorial is a 20-minute tour of TWiki essentials. ATasteOfTWiki is a short introduction training course for beginners. WikiReferences links to selected articles and books about wiki technology and online collaboration.
