[edit] Wiki Editing

At the moment the ability to edit the wiki is limited to committee members e.g. secretaries, but if you believe that you could usefully contribute material please contact either Graham Brodie or Kirby James.

Before editing you need to 'log in' to the Wiki. Click on the 'log in/create account' link at the top right of any page.

Enter your Username and Password and click 'Login'.

Go to the page you want to edit. Tip: enter a word you know is on the page you want in the search box (e.g. sandbox) on the left hand side of any page and click the 'search' button. The wiki will return matching pages and you can and select the page you want to edit.

Then click on the 'edit' link at the top of the page you want to edit. A white box will open showing the Wikitext which is used to build this page.

Add, change or delete the text and then click on the 'Show Preview' button at the bottom of the page. This will show you what the page will look like when finished.

If you are happy with the result click the 'Save Page' button. If the page isn't quite right make more changes to the wikitext in the white box and click 'Show Preview' until you are happy. When the page is right click 'Save Page' to save your changes.

You will stay logged in for about 3 hours.

[edit] Adding New Pages

If you are thinking of adding a new page (as opposed to editing an existing one) please see the Editing Guidelines.

[edit] Embedding Google Maps

The Google Maps Extension has been added to the Wiki. This allows maps to be incuded.

<googlemap lat="50.75" lon="-3.9" width="200" height="150">
50.75, -3.9, Centre of page
</googlemap>

The edit box has been extended to include a "make a map" link (just below the wysiwyg icons) which allows you to generate the required tags interactively.

See also Editors Map, Preview and Discussion.

[edit] Backup

This site is backed up regularly. The backup involves taking a dump of the contents of the MySQL database and all the files that have been uploaded to the images directory.

Periodically a copy of this site is uploaded to a backup server.

[edit] Horizontal Break

A horizontal break e.g. after an image, can be inserted using the following code

<br style="clear:both;"/>
