Wiki Conventions

To keep the wiki readable and usable, please follow some conventions when naming pages:

  • Please use ["Page names in quotes"] when possible, not the usual WikiPageName naming conventions. This results in more readable pages and enables automatic linking when using the page name on other pages. In the wysiwyg editor, you can achieve the same by entering "Page names in quotes" in the link URL dialog box.
  • Escape automatic wiki page links using !WikiPageName or remove the links using the wysiwyg editor.
  • Create sub pages for workgroups using slashes in the name, e.g. "Web WG/Website Hosting Setup".

For more information about Trac wikis, please refer to the Default Trac Start Page.
