Site Overview and New-User Instructions

For more information on collaborative editing with Xwiki see the site's documentation repository 'Web Home' and XWiki User's Guide . For a quick overview, of the features available on this site, see XWiki's main features in 10 slides, also, these videos: Edit a page, Create a page, Insert an Image or a File, View page history.

After you register with a valid e-mail address. You should receive email with subject "Validate your account on morgellonswiki.info" - Click on the link where it says "In order to activate your account, please follow this link." Then log-in with your account, please use the 'Drafts' folder for any public proposals or subtopics you want to write about. If you prefer developing your document(s) in private, use the 'DraftsPrivate' space, which can only be viewed by registered, logged-in users. Both these "spaces" are writable by all registered users that have logged-in. However this is not the wild-west (or Wikipedia): note that editorial control of irrelevant content, shameless marketing & spam will be strictly enforced!

After a successful login, when you browse this 'Drafts' or 'DraftsPrivate' space, note the "Create" panel on the right-hand side - it indicates you have write permissions in that space. In the "Create" panel:

  1. check the default "New Page*" option is selected,
  2. type-in the name of the page you want to create;
  3. click 'Create.'
  4. Note: Be sure your new page's name contains no characters such as '.' (period) '/' (forward-slash), '' (backslash), '"' (quote), "'" (single-quote). This is because the document name (not the document title) is used as the URL, and those characters have special meaning in the "location" bar of your browser. It's a good practice (although it may work for you, it might break for someone else) to also not use the ' ' (space)* character in the names of documents you create. In general, "CamelCase" names like this are preferred: e.g. CDCLiesVersusLymeReality.
When you browse an "/xwiki/bin/edit" URL or use the "Create" panel, you'll be launched into XWiki's cool new WYWIWYG editor. The document you're editing only becomes visible on the web once you explicitly save it (see buttons at bottom of page); if you cancel, or browse to a diffferent web-page, nothing will get saved. In the case of accidentally browsing to a different page, you can use your browser's "back" button to bring you back to the editor. Use the "comment" field to help people understand what got changed.

After you decide to save, go to "What's New" & you'll see the document you just saved. The http://morgellonswiki.info/xwiki/skins/albatross/icons/black-rss-mini3.png"RSS feed" will broadcast the existence of that new document. Remember: there's a record of everything done and changed, so if an "editing accident" occurs, any damage can easily be undone or rolled-back (see the "History" panel at the bottom of the document viewer (which is in every document view, and also at the bottom of the page you're viewing currently).

Once some progress is noted on your document(s), the administrator(s) can promote you to being an editor of your own page(s), or area(s); and after that, you can get editing rights to additional spaces and areas of the site.
