This wiki is community driven. If you don't add information about the hardware with which you have experience, there is little chance that somebody else is going to do it (unless they happen to have the same device). Please don't be shy about adding a wiki page to this guide -- we really need your help! If a page already exists, feel free to add your experiences to the page.

Add a new page

To add a new page, just type in a new URL into your browser like this: of the page you want to add

The preferred URL naming convention for hardware, for example, is: Model-Type-Etcetera

The URL of this page is:

The wiki will replace any spaces with underscores automatically. Simply go to this URL with your browser and start editing the newly created webpage.

Categorize your new page

To categorize your new page, add tags like these at the top:

[[Category: Automation]]
[[Category: Mainboards]]

That way the page will automatically be listed in these categories, making it easier to find. See: Special:Categories for a list of all available categories. Also check out subcategories, such as the subcategories of the Hardware category, to find the appropriate subcategory.

Add content

Add anything you feel is relevant. See Editing help for some tips and examples on the markup you can use.

Add hyperlinks ('wikification')

  • For links to Categories, use the format [[:Category: Hardware]].
  • To use the actual text of a hyperlink, use this format: [[Actual Name of Webpage]], which will be displayed as Actual Name of Webpage.
  • To use alternate text for the hyperlink, use this format: [[Actual_Name_of_webpage|What I Want It to Say]], which will be displayed as

What I Want It to Say.

Move the Table of Contents to the right

Whenever you have more than four subdivisions in a page, a Table of Contents is automatically added. It you would like this table of contents to be moved to the right side of the screen (at the top), add the following code to the top of your web page:

{| align="right"
  | __TOC__
