This Wiki

To edit this wiki you must obtain an account from the current board. We have replaced the older trac wiki with dokuwiki in order to make it a little easier for keeping the pages updated and avoiding the oddities with registered users that have plagued us in the past.

The file should upload and give a name at the top of the media manager window. Then click this name to generate a link. The link will NOT have a display label to the right of the vertical bar. Type one in before hitting Save on the page/block you are editing.
  • If you get files in the wrong namespace, it is sometimes easiest to redo the upload (even download then upload), then delete from within the media manager. There may be simpler ways, but ….
