Revision as of 16:04, 13 May 2008

This page and the contents of the Help namespace are not related to Joomla! but the Wiki software used on this server: Mediawiki. If you are new to Wikis and MediaWiki in particular then you should consult the User's Guide for information on using this wiki software. Users of other wikis (e.g. DokuWiki/JD-Wiki) should make themself familiar with the slightly different text formatting and wikitext syntax.

Recommended readings

Please read the Joomla! Editorial Style Guide and have a look at our list of Words to Watch.

Wiki Manual:

Discussions

  • Talk pages: Every article and each user has an associated page where messages can be left. These are separate namespaces, "Talk:" and "User talk:". Anonymous users have been disabled on this wiki.
  • Message notification: user gets a "You have new messages" notice if someone else has edited their user discussion page
  • Automatic signature: Just type three tildes (~) when you edit, and on saving the page, it will be replaced with your user name and a link to your user page. If you use four tildes, the current date will be added as well. Mainly intended for Talk pages.
  • Support for emailing users through the wiki (email address not shown to the user)
