No problem! First create an account (we disabled anonymous edits). But know that Renzo modified the arithmetic capcha, so read this hand-written page all the way to the end to get the secret:
At that point, when you look at a page, the “edit” tab will show up. You’ll be surprised how obvious the markup is just by looking at any existing page. For example, a bullet item list starts with a “*”. To make a numbered list start each line with a “#” (don’t include any blank lines between items). Headers have equal signs at the start and end of the line. To create a link to a page on the same wiki, put the page title inside of double square brackets, like this: [[Main page]] would be a link to the wiki home page. To create a link to a different site, use single square brackets, the link URL, a space, then the text, like this: [http://docs.getchip.com/ NTC documentation].
To create a page from scratch, first decide which page should link to it. You might decide to have a link to it from the trouble shooting page. So edit that page and add your link. It might be:
- [[Support Q&A]]
Save this page, and you’ll see your link show up red, meaning that it is a link to a non-existant page. Click the link, and it puts you right into an editor for the page.
If you can’t get the page to look right, drop me a line with specific questions, and I can help. One nice thing about mediawiki is the history capability. I can go in and change your page, and you can see exactly what I did to change it. For example, go to http://www.chip-community.org/index.php/Care_and_Feeding and click the “history” tab. You’ll see a bunch of entries like this:

Click the “prev” link on the first entry and you’ll see a side-by-side comparison of the before and after for the page.
