Creating new pages
The easiest way to create a new page is first to create a link to it from another page. The difficult part is to know what the page should be called, and in which group the new page should be created. To give it a good name is important, as the page name will appear in search results and should convey the flavour of the page's content. Example: this page's name in full is Main/CreateAndEdit. Main is the group part of the name, there are other pages in the Main group, like HomePage. There are other groups like Projects and Members. That gives us a two level page structure.
To create a link to a new page write the page name in double square brackets, like
[[Test Page]] or
[[test page]]. Such a page will be created in the same group as the page from which you link. If the page you are linking shall be in another group, you need to include the name of it as well, like
Then save the page with the new link, and the link will appear with a question mark behind it, because as yet it links to a page which does not yet exist, your new page! Click on the link and the new page will open in edit mode, ready for you to write content into the edit box. After clicking Save the new page is created, and the link on the page you started out from has no question mark and works normally.
Adding an email address
You can add links, which when clicked will open a user's email software.
Email addresses of the form: [[mailto:myname@suchandsuchplace]] are obfusicated to prevent email harvesting robots reading them. Note that they have to be precede by mailto: and enclosed in double square brackets, to.

The easiest way to add an image to page is to add Attach:imagename.jpg to the page content when editing the page. Replace imagename.jpg with your choosen image name plus the file extension (normally .jpg, or .gif, or .png). Make sure the name does not contain empty spaces! Save the page, and Attach:imagename.jpg appears as a link, if the image with that name is not yet uploaded. Click the link, and an upload form appears. Click the Browse... button to select the right image from your computer. Make sure you previously prepared the image to a suitable size (not too big). It does not matter if the image on your computer has a different file name than the name you are going to use with the Attach:.. markup, don't change the name in the box beside the upload button, as it is the one you used with Attach:. click the upload button and wait till the upload has succeeded. Then view the page (click on the page name), and your image should appear now in the page.
You may wish to float or center the image. Put one of the following markups on one line by itself.
Use %center%Attach:imagename.jpg for centering.
Use %rfloat%Attach:imagename.jpg for right floating, text will go to the left of the image.
Use %lfloat%Attach:imagename.jpg for left floating, text will go to the right of the image.
You can also add a caption to the image, by using a vertical pipe character:
And add a tooltip text, which appears when the mouse hovers over the image, directly behind the image name in double quotes:
