It's a community effort!
Among our faithful contributors are Volunteer Housekeepers who keep the place tidy. Don't worry too much about making mistakes. The important thing is contribute where you can, and share what you know.

Creation of links
Links are automatically created for you when you join capitalized words to make local references using Camel Case. Links can be forced by proceeding the a word with a question mark.

To suppress autolinking of camel cased words, use the < ig >VanBuren< /ig > tags (minus the spaces, of course) around the word or name. This will produce "VanBuren" without a link. The < CODE > tag will also suppress camel case linking for example: this.FontStrikeThru = .f..

HTML links are supported as well so feel free to use < a href="linkaddress">linktext< / a > style links.

URLs and email addresses
URLs, FTP sites, email addresses andISBN numbers are recognised and automatically formatted as links.

ISBN numbers and Knowledge Base article numbers
ISBN numbers, which look like this: ISBN 0965509362, are automatically routed to for which we get a small part of the purchase price (Isbn Linker).

Knowledgebase article id's, which look like this: Q130200 Offsite link to;EN-US;Q130200, automatically carry you to the online Microsoft knowledgebase article.

Prepending the word "Category" before a link, as in Category Learning Wiki, is enough to assign the current topic to that category whether the category exists or not. Try List Categories, it's a great way to locate interesting stuff.

Ending Tags
By design, most tags do not span lines or paragraphs, and this wiki will automatically insert any missing end tags at the end of each line to preserve formatting integrity.

Search on title
If you look closely, the title itself is a link and it will find all topics where this topic title appears in the text.

Consult Recent Changes and Not So Recent Changes
Recent Changes shows all changes made to pages in the last few days, and Not So Recent Changes goes a little further back.

Consult Random Topics
Random Topics is a good way to explore since this may bring up great material that hasn't been recently modified.

Browsing Wiki pages is easy
Simply click the Find option at the top and bottom of every page -- a title or full text search can be performed; alternatively, you can enter a string to look for in the 'Search:' textbox at the top-right or bottom-right of each page and click on [Go]. Also look at the Alphabetic Topic List, or List Categories, or Recent Changes, or Not So Recent Changes, or Random Topics.
