I'm sure I'm being thick cos I really don't know how to use a Wiki - but when I click Dickie's link to the main page, I can't work out how to get to what Sabine has added .... can somebody point me in the right direction please?!

Hi Julie,

that's what I meant about a site index Sad It's not on the home page - you've got to either know it's there, or search for it - I've put the two links up I've added to
http://www.frit-happens.co.uk/wiki/Shards
http://www.frit-happens.co.uk/wiki/Cleaning_Beads

Try going to the first one. In order to edit, you'll need to log in with your FHF user name and password. Then, on the Shard page, click Edit.

Actually, Dickie, hope you don't mind, I put up a 'Sandpit' page for people to play with, Julie, it's here:

http://www.frit-happens.co.uk/wiki/Sandpit

....and I've also linked it through from the Main Page Smiley Smiley

Hope that helps? Enjoy!

Given how few of you have logged in... and how even less of you (one) have actually written anything, I have to wonder if you are all just stunned.... confused... or just plain don't know what to write.

I would really suggest reading the pages on
Editing
Creating a New Page

Once you are logged in, at the top of any editable page you will find a selection of tabs, that allow you to (depending on your rights) Discussion/Edit/View source/History of any page.

These are basically your tools to allow you to write and manage your pages.

Writing an page is really easy. The rule is.. don't worry about all the difficult things like formatting or links to start with, someone can always come in and sort these out for you... as the Wiki help says

Quote
The number one rule of wiki editing, is to be bold. Dive in and make changes. Other people can correct mistakes later, so have confidence, and give it a try! There can be all kinds of editing conventions, rules, and philosophy governing the editing of wiki pages, but the "be bold" rule overrides these!

Although I said, don't worry about formatting, there are a few things that are useful to remember
If you want to create a heading use the '=' sign twice before and after the heading... this actually makes it look a bit like a heading anyway.

e.g
== My Heading ==
Some text here


Each page actually has two parts to it.. the Main content, that people see as the page, and a discussion where you can discuss what should go there this is a really useful section.

Anyway, please don't be afraid to write anything... you can NEVER completely destroy anything, as all edits can be undone if necessary.

One final thing... While getting used to things I suggest using the "Show preview" button rather than committing (Saving) every edit you make, as it is easy to make a mistake, and although all mistakes can be corrected, it just adds to the editing history, and makes it messy !!

Anyway, just get in there and start writing.

Dickie, I still don't know how to go from the main page to, for example, the pages that Sabine wrote this morning - how do you find them?

You need to search... as more stuff is added the link structure will build up. But in the mean time we need to add a contents page, that lists the pages.
You can look under the "Special Pages" section for lots of links to various views.

All pages can be seen here

Julie, it'll search for both page titles and content, just like a search in the forum. Have a play to see just how manu dumb words I've written....."bead" will obviously get you somewhere, "hollow" would too......and I believe you might even get a hit on "flowerpot" Wink

Ah.  The search is very specific though - I tried "shard" and got nothing, but found your article with "shards"  Roll Eyes

That's interesting Julie, and slightly annoying (I share an office with an information specialist, it rubs off). I wonder if you can change the search parameters....). Go on Julie, play in the sandpit, you know you want to!
