PBWiki: Editing and creating wiki pages

When you are a "writer" in a PBWiki, you are able to edit pages - adding new content to a page, or changing existing content. To edit a page, just click on the Edit tab that appears near the top of each page:

When you are done editing the page, make sure you click on the SAVE button at the bottom of the page to save your work.

You can also create a new page; just click on the Create Page link which you will see in the upper right-hand corner of each page:

You will be prompted to give your page a name. It's best not to use any punctuation in the page names, and no blank spaces.

When you have given the page a name, just click Create Page. Make sure you click SAVE when you are done.

The page you have created can be found at an address consisting of the name of your wiki, forward-slash, your page name:


You can link to the page just as you would like to any other webpage on the Internet, using this address.

It's the easiest and fastest way I know of to publish your materials online!
