PmWiki: BasicEditing

The pages on this site are Wiki Wiki Web pages, which means that pages can be created and edited by multiple authors. To edit a page, simply click on the Edit Page link that exists somewhere on the page (usually in the header or footer somewhere). Some pages may be password-protected, depending on how others have configured the security on the system, but many Wiki Wiki Web systems allow open editing of all pages.

The rules for basic page editing are fairly simple--start each line without spaces and put a blank line between paragraphs. Four or more hyphens at the beginning of a line produces a horizontal line on the page. Asterisks at the beginning of lines produce bullet lists. There are more Text Formatting Rules for lists and other specialized text, if you want to do that.

If you want to experiment with editing a page, try the Wiki Sandbox. You can edit the Wiki Sandbox without affecting anything important on this site.
