The "front" button on the top navigationbar will always take you to the Front Page of the wiki. The "index"button will take you to a list of all pages on the wiki (organized intofolders if directories are used). Alternatively, you can search usingthe search box. Note that the search is set to look for whole words, soif you are looking for "gremlins", type that and not "gremlin".The "go" box will take you directly to the page you type.# MarkdownThis wiki's pages are written in [pandoc]'s extended form of [markdown].If you're not familiar with markdown, you should start by lookingat the [markdown "basics" page] and the [markdown syntax description].Consult the [pandoc User's Guide] for information about pandoc's syntaxfor footnotes, tables, description lists, and other elements not presentin standard markdown.[pandoc]: http://johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc[pandoc User's Guide]: http://johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc/README.html[markdown]: http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown[markdown "basics" page]: http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/basics[markdown syntax description]: http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax Markdown is pretty intuitive, since it is based on email conventions.Here are some examples to get you started:

For headings, prefix a line with one or more # signs: one for a major heading,two for a subheading, three for a subsubheading. Be sure to leave space beforeand after the heading.    # Markdown    Text...     ## Some examples...       Text...## Wiki linksLinks to other wiki pages are formed this way: [Page Name]().(Gitit converts markdown links with empty targets into wikilinks.)To link to a wiki page using something else as the link text:[something else](Page Name).Note that page names may contain spaces and some special characters.They need not be CamelCase. CamelCase words are *not* automaticallyconverted to wiki links.Wiki pages may be organized into directories. So, if you haveseveral pages on wine, you may wish to organize them like so:    Wine/Pinot Noir    Wine/Burgundy    Wine/Cabernet SauvignonNote that a wiki link [Burgundy]() that occurs inside the Winedirectory will link to Wine/Burgundy, and not to Burgundy.To link to a top-level page called Burgundy, you'd have to use[Burgundy](/Burgundy).# Creating and modifying pages## Registering for an accountIn order to modify pages, you'll need to be logged in. To registerfor an account, just click the "register" button in the bar on topof the screen. You'll be asked to choose a username and a password,which you can use to log in in the future by clicking the "login"button. While you are logged in, these buttons are replaced bya "logout so-and-so" button, which you should click to log outwhen you are finished.Note that logins are persistent through session cookies, so if youdon't log out, you'll still be logged in when you return to thewiki from the same browser in the future.## Editing a pageTo edit a page, just double-click it, or click the "edit" button atthe bottom right corner of the page.You can click "Preview" at any time to see how your changes will look.Nothing is saved until you press "Save."Note that you must provide a description of your changes. This is tomake it easier for others to see how a wiki page has been changed.## Creating a new pageTo create a new page, just create a wiki link that links to it, andclick the link. If the page does not exist, you will be editing itimmediately.## Reverting to an earlier versionIf you click the "history" button at the bottom of the page, you willget a record of previous versions of the page. You can see the differencesbetween two versions by dragging one onto the other; additions will behighlighted in yellow, and deletions will be crossed out with a horizontalline. Clicking on the description of changes will take you to the pageas it existed after those changes. To revert the page to the revisionyou're currently looking at, just click the "revert" button at the bottomof the page, then "Save". ## Deleting a pageThe "delete" button at the bottom of the page will delete a page. Notethat deleted pages can be recovered, since a record of them will still beaccessible via the "activity" button on the top of the page.# Uploading filesTo upload a file--a picture, a PDF, or some other resource--click the"upload" button in the navigation bar. You will be prompted to selectthe file to upload. As with edits, you will be asked to provide adescription of the resource (or of the change, if you are overwritingan existing file).Often you may leave "Name on wiki" blank, since the existing name of thefile will be used by default. If that isn't desired, supply a name.Note that uploaded files *must* include a file extension (e.g. .pdf).If you are providing a new version of a file that already exists on thewiki, check the box "Overwrite existing file." Otherwise, leave itunchecked.To link to an uploaded file, just use its name in a regular markdown link.For example, if you uploaded a picture fido.jpg, you can insert thepicture into a page using the markdown: ![fido](fido.jpg).If you uploaded a PDF projection.pdf, you can insert a link to itusing: [projection](projection.pdf).
