2. There are 4 tabs and 3 buttons to help the user edit the page.#

3. Click the Edit tab to edit page contents in the Edit-box
#

Three buttons:
"Save": save changes made to the page.
"Preview": preview the page before saving it.
"Cancel": cancel all page edits. No changes will be made to the page.

  • Use the 'Cancel' button rather than the browser's Back button to leave the Edit page, otherwise page changes won't be discarded!
  • If the user attempts to edit a page which is being edited by someone else, a warning message will be displayed informing the user that the page is currently "locked". Don't worry, just take a break, have a cup of tea and try again later. The maximum locking time is 1 hour.

4. Clicking the Attach tab will allow the user to upload documents such as figure and text files to the page

There is a restriction on the type of files that can be uploaded to the EIS Wiki. Files types that are allowed include image, txt, zip, and IDL program files. The maximum file size allowed for upload is 1 MB.

5. Clicking the Info tab will provide the user with information about the current page, such as page history (version control), incoming links and outgoing links which are linking to/from this page, etc.#

Earlier page versions can also be recovered from here.

6. Clicking the Help tab will display the Wiki (editing) Help page, which is useful in checking the Wiki editing syntax.

The Help page is very useful, so please use it frequently!

7. The user has access to a number of Editors. #

The WikiWizard editor is powerful, but the plain editor is good enough to handle most editing needs. Users may have noticed there are a number of fast-editing tools located at the bottom of editing-box, just like those in OpenOffice or MS Office, and may prefer to use these.

8. Change note bar: useful in helping the user keep the track of the page!#
