Default Help Links
The text below is included on the Main Page when MediaWiki is installed, these links are quite useful for anyone who doesn't know much about wikitext. The bottom 3 links are more for System Administrators installing MediaWiki, but I've left these here just in case they are ever needed ....
Consult the User's Guide for information on using the wiki software.
Peter's Help Links & Editing Hints (for what they are worth)
Editing MediaWiki pages in wikitext is NOT easy, a bit simpler than html but there is a learning curve associated with this skill - maybe I am just used to using WYSIWYG editors. Anyway, here are a few things I found useful:
Utilities/Tools to convert html/Word files to wikitext
Utilities/Tools to convert csv/Excel tables to wikitext
- Copy & Paste Excel-to-Wiki Converter - this is pretty good for coverting Excel table to wikitext but I have found some editing after conversion is required.
- CSV Converter - this is pretty helpful converting csv files to either MediaWiki or html format.
