What is a Wiki?

According to Wikipedia, the world largest wiki site:

A Wiki ([ˈwiː.kiː] <wee-kee> or [ˈwɪ.kiː] <wick-ey>) is a type of website that allows users to add, remove, or otherwise edit and change most content very quickly and easily.

And that is it! As a part of Wikidot.com network this Site is a customizable piece of the Internet where Users can edit content, upload files, communicate and collaborate.


How to Edit pages - A quick-start

If you are allowed to edit pages in this Site, simply click on edit button at the bottom of the page. This will open an editor with a toolbar pallette with options.

From the initial Welcome Page (didn't want to erase it because there is some important info to be had here.)

Welcome to your new site! Please read this first!

This page is just a welcome-page and you really might want to change it using the "edit" button at the bottom of this page and delete this introduction.

If you do not want to delete cotents this page, click on + options and rename/move and rename it to e.g. start0 page and start your fresh new Site then!

We have also prepared a few pages for your site to look nice from the beginning. Take a look at:

  • nav:side - left side navigation menu, edit if you wish!
  • nav:top - top navigation menu, you can edit it to make pull-down menus

Our goal it to make a site customizable as much as possible. Take a look at Site Manager to explore the options. Take a close look at Permissions section - it is very likely you would like to change default options and allow other users to contribute too!
