Editing Tips

Sandbox

Here is a sandbox that you can practice editing with.

Working With Pages

Creating

You can create a page by going to your browser's addressbar and typing:

http://foicica.com/wiki/[NameOfPage]

CamelCase names will be converted to dash-case names. You can link to either the page's CamelCase or dash-case name. Please note that when you create a new page, no links to it are created for you; you have to create them yourself.

Editing

Go to the page you would like to edit and click on its name.

Renaming

  1. Go to the page you would like to rename.
  2. Click on its name to edit it.
  3. Click on the 'Control' button right below the page name and to the left of "Editor syntax reference".
  4. Enter in the new name.
  5. Click "Rename".

Deleting

Follow steps 1 through 3 above and then click "Delete".

Working with Revisions

Viewing

Go to the page you would like to view revisions for, click on its name to edit it, and click on its name once more. Select any revision number you choose.

Comparing

  1. First go to the list of revisions for the page as described above.
  2. Choose one of the revisions to compare. The page will show that revision.
  3. Select the name of the page and a comparison between the previously selected revision and the current revision is shown.
  4. Change your browser's addressbar parameters if you would like to see revisions between different versions.

Additions are highlighted in green and are underlined. Deletions are highlighted in red and are struck out.

Restoring

  1. Go to the page's revision list.
  2. Select the revision to restore.
  3. Click "Restore" at the bottom.

Working with Files

Files can be attached to individual pages. When you are editing a new page, you cannot attach files yet. First create a page. Then edit it again and you will be given the option to add and remove files at the bottom.

It is important to realize that files will be renamed when uploaded to replace any non-alphanumeric and non-dash characters with dashes, except for the very last dot (.) which separates file name from extension. For example, textadept_1.0.tar.gz would be renamed textadept-1-0-tar.gz.

File References

Files are stored in a file/ directory for a page. They can be accessed as follows page-name/file/file-1.ext. Note that you must use the dash-case page name. CamelCase/file/file-1.ext will not work.
