This page was written by Pluto and imported with their permission when LinuxMCE branched off in February, 2007. In general any information should apply to LinuxMCE. However, this page should be edited to reflect changes to LinuxMCE and remove old references to Pluto.
== Creating a new page ==

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

http://plutohome.com/wiki/index.php/My New Page Name

This way we will not have links pointing to death / unfinished pages.

Categories

Look on the Categories page to see the categories the where allready 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 end 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.
