    Default Need help finding pages on the Wiki?

    I just created a simple page called 'Help' that will give you a link to an index of all of the pages on the Wiki.

    To use it, go to the wiki HERE,
    type "help" in the search box on the left hand side of the Wiki and press enter or click Go.

    I don't know about you, but I found this very useful... Hopefully it didn't already exist somewhere.

    Hmm, seems alot that you've just uncovered could be considered as, and as such could be listed in, the HowTo section, which is what I've been using as an index thus far.

    There's little doubt that this will be found useful to many.


    Does the page keep itself updated, or does it introduce another layer of maintenance to articles?



    What's a 'namespace'?

    listing all pages is standard functionality of the mediawiki, just go to "special pages" on the left menu, here you will get all what you need.

    Yes, the page is just a MediaWiki "Special Page" that is an index of all known pages, so it will automatically update itself as pages are added.

    Yes, it is - and that's GREAT if you know how to do it, or what "Special Pages" means... Since most of us (I assume) are NOT MediaWiki experts, I thought this would help... 8P
