Cool, let's get you started writing an article.

Your Account

The first thing you need to do is sign up for an account to edit things here.

  1. In the top right corner, click Log in / create account.
  2. Log in if you already have an account, or create one if you don't.

Any problems, forgotten passwords, issues, feel free to email computing@ystv.york.ac.uk.

Your Article

What do you want to write about? There's a list of pages that get linked to a lot that don't exist. Click a red link and just start writing, or click edit on the top of any existing page.

  • Create links to other pages using two square brackets: typing [[Roses 2007]] creates Roses 2007.
  • Boldify text using three apostrophes: typing '''History Wiki''' creates History Wiki.

It really doesn't matter if you break things.

Every version of every page is stored here. You can't permanently break things, so just edit, improve and have fun. It also doesn't matter if you can't link things perfectly, or make the prettiest page: the information is what's important.

Your Images

Upload your photos of YSTV history to the wiki. Give them a descriptive title and a little bit of information (date, location). If you're feeling really adventurous, use the template photo-reuse to add information.
