Creating a new page

To create a new page you don't really need a wiki-link that points to it, you only need to write this in your location bar:

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Installing_Dansguardian_on_LinuxMCE

This way we will not have links pointing to dead / unfinished pages. http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Installing_Dansguardian_on_LinuxMCE

Categories

Look on the Categories page to see the categories that where already entered and click on one of the categories to see the documents related to it. If you want to add your document in a existing category or wish to create a new one, add this wiki tag for each category at the top of your page:

[[Category:First Category Name]]
[[Category:Second Category Name]]

Tree like structure using Categories

MediaWiki uses the concept of categories to help you separate information in logical related pages. Sometimes you want to create a tree-like structure to organize that information, this can be done by using the concept of subcategories. To make a category X to act as a subcategory of category Y, just add the wiki tag: [[Category:Y]] in the X category description page, this way you will make Y category the parent of X category.

Version state

Below the categories (if any) you can state the following code

 {{versioninfo}} 

This will result in the version state table to show

Version Status Date Updated Updated By
710 Unknown N/A N/A
810 Unknown N/A N/A
1004 Unknown N/A N/A
1204 Unknown N/A N/A
1404 Unknown N/A N/A
Usage Information

If you visit a page that has an "unkown" status and you know the status for a version, modify the above tag by putting in parameter substitutions. For example, if I find a page that I know works with 810, I would modify the tag to read for instance

 {{versioninfo|810Status=Working|810UpdatedDate=1st May 2010|810UpdatedBy=bongowongo}} 

Will result in

Version Status Date Updated Updated By

1004 Unknown N/A N/A
1204 Unknown N/A N/A
