1. Go to http://wiki.nus.edu.sg/ or directly to any wiki space (if you know the URL).
2. Click Log In, on the top right hand corner, next to the search box.
3. Log in with your NUSNET ID and password. Omit the domain.
4. You are now logged in. Instead of the Log In link, you will see your name.
2. Give your space a Space Name. This is the wiki space's title. It can be changed later.
3. Give your space a Space Key. This forms part of the URL (web address) of your wiki space.
4. Choose whether to make the wiki space private or public. This can be modified later.
5. Click Create.
1. Go to the page where you want to add a new subordinate page (known here as a Child page). Click Add > Page.
2. Click in the title field, indicated by the grey New Page title. Type the page name/title.
3. Put in content in the text field. Click Save (bottom right corner of text field) when ready.
4. Done! View your handiwork.
It is good practice to:
1. To edit a page, click the Edit button on the top right of the page.
If you do not see an edit button, you are either not logged in to Wiki.nus or you do not have permission to edit that page.
2. Edit the page. Click Save (bottom right of the text box) when you are done.
If you see a warning that someone else is editing the page, such as the one below, do not continue editing. You should click Cancel and come back to edit the page another time. If you proceed, one of your edits may be overwritten without being saved.
The diagram below shows the hierarchy of pages in an example wiki.
You can see that there are three levels. When you click Add Page, you are adding a new page one level down.
So, if you add a page from Example Wiki (Level 1), you will create a page on Level 2.
If you add a page from Understanding Pages or Formatting (Level 2 pages), you will create a page on Level 3, and so on.
Sometimes, you may accidentally create a page on the wrong level. If you have done so, you can easily rearrange the hierarchy and order of pages.
Go to Browse > Pages.
For View, click Tree. Continuing the example above, click the plus icons to open the branches. You will see the following:
By default, pages at each level are ordered alphabetically.
You can click and drag individual pages to any part of the wiki.
In this example, we want the Basic page to be above the Advanced page.
To do this, drag Basic between Formatting and Advanced until you see a thin grey line. Drop Basic above Advanced.
You will now see that Basic appears before Advanced. If you want to return to alphabetical display, click the "A" icon.
|Any pages on the same level as Home will not be visible when using the pagetree macro or the sidebar of the Documentation theme.|
Generally, you can use the WYSIWYG (Rich Text) editor to format your content.
While this may seem limited, there are ways to add variety to your wiki pages.
You can create links to:
Type [ in the text editor. The link auto-suggest will pop up.
If none of the suggested wiki pages are listed, or you want to link to other content, click the Link icon on the text editor toolbar.
Search is the best way to link to another Wiki.nus wiki.
Recently Viewed is a list of Wiki.nus pages which you have recently viewed. Many times, this will have the page that you want to link to.
Attachments allows you to upload a file and create a download link for your readers. You can attach files up to 20MB per attachment.
Web links allows you to create links to web sites outside of Wiki.nus.
There are two ways of inserting images into a wiki page: drag-and-drop and using the insert menu.
While in edit mode on any wiki page, drag the image from its folder on your computer and drop it into the page which you are editing, in the place where it should appear.
On the menu, click Insert > Image.
Browse for the image on your computer, then click Insert.
If you are using the wiki to come up with a collaborative document, you may want to use the comments function which is available on each page or blog post (if you have been provided permission to add comments).
If you are watching the page or blog post, click the link in the email and reply in the wiki. Do not click reply in your email to respond. (Notification emails originate from a do-not-reply email address.)
