Note: Editing and creation of articles is currently restricted to registered users. See 'Notes for Contributors' in the 'Utilities' section of the main menu.
Once you're logged in, a grey floating 'Tool' menu at the right hand side of the screen enables access to all the main 'Content' articles for editing. (Note: Some pages, such as the site info etc. are locked)
Like most Wikis, the site doesn't use HTML for formatting (security reasons etc). The special syntax is very comprehensive (a guide can be found), but has quite a steep 'learning curve', so, in front of the original there's now a built-in and relatively simple as the default system - which makes basic editing much easier.
There's a 'Switch Editor' button at the top of the page which allows logged-in users to switch between the two systems at any time.
Registered users can also navigate back to previous versions of the page to undo recent changes.
The best way to create a new article is to use the 'Create a new article' link (at the top of every page, for logged-in users) That way you can easily choose which category to create the new article in.
If you'd like to experiment, use the '' pages, where you can create anything as a test.
(Note: You need to use the original 'Syntax Editor' to do this.)
At present, only users who have been given 'Editor' status can upload images.
The green 'Open Access' icon denotes that the entire reference is fully open for all readers.
Note re. Firefox
For reasons yet to be clarified, modern versions of the Firefox browser are substantially under-performing when using spellchecking whilst editing pages. The only workaround found so far is to use a different browser - or an old version of Firefox.
Please note that the 'original' contents of each page are currently restricted to being written and edited in English only.
Ideas for new topics, and suggested additions / corrections for older ones, are always welcome.
