What to do next

Experienced Wikidot users should start here.

Customize this wiki

Wikidot consists of several wiki sites, not just one. Right now you are on the main wiki. Customize it!

  • You can configure all security and other settings online, using the Site Manager. When you invite other people to help build this site they don't have access to the Site Manager unless you make them administrators like yourself. Check out the Permissions section.
  • Your Wikidot site has two menus, one at the side called 'nav:side', and one at the top called 'nav:top'. These are Wikidot pages, and you can edit them like any page.
  • To edit a page, go to the page and click the Edit button at the bottom. You can change everything in the main area of your page. The Wikidot system is easy to learn and powerful.
  • You can attach images and other files to any page, then display them and link to them in the page.
  • Every Wikidot page has a history of edits, and you can undo anything. So feel secure, and experiment.
  • To start a forum on your site, see the Site Manager » Forum.
  • The license for this Wikidot site has been set to Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 License. If you want to change this, use the Site Manager.
  • If you want to learn more, make sure you visit the Documentation section at www.wikidot.org

Customize the default templates

There are 2 initial default templates for other wikis. One is located at template-en and the other at template-blog. If someone creates a new wiki, these are presented as choices and the selected template is cloned to the new wiki's address. You should customize template-en and template-blog to suit your needs.

Create more templates

Simply create new wikis with web site names starting with "template-" (e.g. "template-pl", "template-recipes") and your users will be have even more choices for the basic wiki layout they want to start with.
