This page contains information on how to edit/update this wiki. For questions relating to editing a Doku-Wiki site in general, please look first in the Doku-Wiki manual. For specific questions, you might like to try Frequently asked questions. If you have already carefully read this page, the Frequently asked questions page and the Discussion forum, and you still cannot find the answer to your question, then you may contact us here.

Adding new pages/folders

New wiki pages should be stored in the appropriate namespace. For example, a new hydrodynamics test called newtest can be created using the following address:

The above page does not exist yet. Click on create new page to create the page. You will then be able to start editing. If the page is a new code test, it will automatically start you off with the code test template (see below).

It is important to ensure that your new page is indexed in the right place in the sidebar. Please check. The newtest above, for example, will appear inside the folder hydrotest inside codetest. If your new page is in the wrong place, you can remove it by deleting all content within it. You may then start again as above. Note: pages are listed alphabetically ordered by their name (i.e. newtest will appear before ztest and after atest). They are listed in the sidebar index by their page title (the first heading that appears on the page). They are not ordered alphabetically by page title. If you want to change the order, you must choose a different page name.

NOTE: It can take some time (~5-10mins) for the new page to appear properly listed in the menu on the left. Please be patient.

New folders may be added similarly to pages. Adding a page:

Will create the test newtest inside the folder newfolder. Note: tests inside new folders will not automatically start with the code test template. In this case the template must be pasted in.

Code test template

We would like as much as possible to keep code tests in a standardised format. This ensures that all the relevant information is included, while making it easier for the reader to navigate the site. For this reason, we encourage new tests to use this template. The template will be applied automatically to new tests (if not in a new folder) when you click on create this page. If you do not wish to use the template, simply delete it and add your content instead.

Adding LaTeX

The following code:

    \frac{3}{4 \pi}   \sqrt{4 \cdot x^2 }\\
    \lim_{n \to \infty}
    \sum_{k=1}^n \frac{1}{k^2} = \frac{\pi^2}{6}\\
    \it{f}(x) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{x} x^2}\\
    e^{i \pi} + 1 = 0}\;

Uploading files

To upload a picture/movie/simulation file, click on the “Add images and other files” button while editing a page. It looks like this: . This should then open the “media manager”. Drag and drop the file(s) you wish to upload to the media manager window and then click on “upload”. Please be patient. There is no status bar so you must simply wait for the green tick to appear at the top of the window saying “upload successful”. To include the file on your current wiki page, just click on the filename (this applies to files already uploaded too).

BUG REPORT: the latest dokuwiki release says “upload failed” when in fact it works fine. Just continue as if it worked. Hopefully this will be fixed soon. JR 03/06/12

Important: The maximum file size for upload is currently set to 128MB. If you would like to upload a file larger than this, or if you would like to upload more than 1GB in total, please contact us.

Polling users

This is a feature that allows you to poll users to see what they think of something. This first option allows one vote per user. Users need to be logged in to vote and they can change their mind. The following code:

<userpoll How do you like this new site?>
  * awesome
  * great
  * good
  * fantastic

produces this:
