Editing a page

Click either:

  • Existing page: click the Edit link at the top
  • Non-existing page: Follow the link to the non-existing page. It will take you straight to an edit page.

If you are adding a new page, we have album, song, and show Templates that you can use, so that you don't have to reinvent the wheel. You can also use the Sandbox to test out any changes that you want to make, if you are new to wikis.

After you complete your changes to the page, you can either preview or save the changes. Select "This is a minor edit" if it is something minor, like fixing a typographical error. When ready to save your changes, enter a summary, and press the Save Page button. Note: Unless you are adding a new page, or correcting a simple typo, be sure to enter a description of the edit in the Summary field. These show up in the change logs (including Recent Changes), making it easier for all users to see what's changed. This is very important now that this site is syndicated via RSS.

Linking to a Wiki Page

While editing a wiki page, put double square brackets around the text you wish to become a link. Example:

[[Brand New Page]]

will create a new link that will function like this:

Brand New Page

If you want to display a different phrase than the page name, you can use a pipe (|). The text before the pipe (|) is the page name. The text after the pipe is the label for that particular link. For example:

[[Brand New Page|My Page]]

will display like this: My Page

Creating a new link to another website

While editing a wiki page, put square brackets around the URL and the description text you wish to become a link. Example:

[http://www.SublimeWiki.com SublimeWiki]

will create a new link that will function like this:

SublimeWiki

Page, URL, and Image Links

You can link to a page by removing the spaces between two or more words, and starting each word with a capital letter. For instance, WikiName and TextFormattingExamples are samples of page links.

Non-existing pages, like SampleUndefinedPage, will be displayed in red, indicating the page doesn't exist yet. Follow the link to create and edit the page. [The sample page used here is a special example page--you can't define it.]

Inline image: http://www.usemod.com/wiki.gif

Inline link: http://www.usemod.com/cgi-bin/mb.pl?SandBox

You can separate links from adjacent text with spaces or the special "" (two double-quotes) delimiter. The "" delimiter is not displayed--it is useful for cases like plural forms of page links (such as UseModWiki""s). In nearly all cases trailing punctuation is ignored, so you can safely make links like http://www.usemod.com/, without the trailing comma being part of the link.

You can also use FreeLinks.

Redirecting

If you ever need to change a page so that it redirects to another page, edit the page you want to redirect from, and use this command:

#REDIRECT [[targetpagename]]

Note - The command must start at the first character of the first line of the page. REDIRECT must be in FULL CAPS. If the target page has spaces in its name, replace the spaces with underscores ( _ )
