Small, form based edits

  • You do not have to make extensive edits and most pages are edited using a form to simplify matters. Each piece of information added is helpful. If you come across a single new piece of information then add it please! You may also find it helpful to know some basic wiki mark up for when filling in longer text boxes.
  • The easiest way to start editing is to find a page you can add to and then click on edit. The keyboard shortcut alt-shift-& will also open a form for editing. Any problems using the forms - drop us a mail.

Adding new pages

Pages should also be added via forms. Each page has a category. For instance you may wish to share a Personal Experience, Case study, area of Development or Research. Or you could start to make additions by browsing contents already in categories and then adding missing items.
