Wiki coding is relatively simple to learn and use, but it's not always so intuitive, and so it would be a good idea to first read some very brief help guides before adding content.

Step 1: Create a New Page

  • Unlike most websites whereby you create a new page and subsequently connect the new page to the main site via a link, in a wiki you first have to create the link and then the page. When you create the link, it will be to a blank page. Then when you click on this blank page, it will give you the option of adding content to it so that it’s no longer blank.
  • Therefore, the first thing to do is decide where your halachik article would belong within our topical categories as displayed on the left sidebar.
    • For instance, “The Laws of Shema” would fall within the “Prayer” category.
  • Next, you need to create the link. To do this, click the edit tab towards the top of the page. From here you’ll see a large editable text box with all sorts of strange looking coding symbols. Find where you should add you link and surround the title with double brakets
  • A red link means that it's an empty page, which you can then click on and add content
