How To Edit Pages - Quickstart

Due to persistent spammer trouble, I (Philip) have disallowed editing by non-members. You need to become a member of the Wiki before you can add/modify content on the Wiki. This is just so that random internet people don't vandalise our Wiki. Getting membership is easy : See How to become a member to find out how. You can now edit pages anonymously, but in this case your IP address will be logged in the edit history. Anonymous editing has been — temporarily — enabled so that folks can play around with the wiki without having to wait for membership approvals.

If you are already a member, log in with your username and password and simply click on the edit button at the bottom of the page. This will open an editor with lots of useful buttons. Logging in to edit will ensure that your username is shown against the changes you made in the pages' history.

If you are not a member and don't want to get a login just to edit the Wiki, then go ahead and click on the edit button at the bottom of the page that you want to edit.

In either case, if you want to create a new page, then enter a title (this can be edited any time later) in the box below "Add a new page" which appears on the left side of every page in the Wiki and click on the button named "new page".

Creating and editing pages with this editor is easy and very intuitive. Most importantly, you can use LaTeX syntax to create formulas like the following one.

(1)
\begin{align} f(k) \cdot poly(n) \end{align}

Now isn't that cool?

All this magic is done using text-based mark-up, so if you don't like clicking on things you can directly type the markup in. See Wiki Syntax Documentation for the syntax.

For general help with the Wiki, see Wiki Documentation for all the documentation.
