HOWTO

Just start typing some text. Paragraphs are automatically created, just leave an empty row between them. You can force line-breaks by writing this: <br />.

Don't be shy to edit, all versions of the text are saved automatically so it's always possible to go back to an older version. Don't worry if you're not too sure about how to format your articles, Anu can help with wiki-style formatting after you've written an article f (you can email her for wiki-help: anu@rankabrand.com)

The below should get you started, and you can find more tips here.


Creating Articles

  • Go to search on left side and write the title of your article. If it doesn't already exist, on the search results page you get the option to create the page. [1]
  • Create a link from article you're writing to a new one - when you save the page and click the creation link, you'll go straight into editing the new article. Create a New Article!
