Start with http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Wikitext_examples if you are new to MediaWiki markup.
Creating new pages
To create a new page, do this:
- Visit Template:NewPage and copy the text area to clipboard. Feel free to modify the template.
- Goto WikEmacs:Scratch Buffer
- Add this [[Test Page]] and save the scratch buffer.
- Click on the new Wiki link to create a blank page and paste the contents of clipboard there.
- Save the newly created page.
- Now you have a basic template which you can expand upon. Add content to the new page as you please.
- Articles should be geared toward the current and development versions of Emacs, 23 and 24 at time of writing. References to older Emacs releases should generally be avoided.
- Articles should not reproduce documentation already available from another source. Many packages and extensions are well-documented on their own project sites; and Emacs itself includes extensive documentation. Link to official documentation where possible.
- Comments and questions belong on the Discussion pages, not in articles themselves. Always sign your comments using ~~~~. This expands to your username (if logged in) and adds a timestamp. Unsigned comments make the discussion hard to follow.
- Extensions and packages will not be hosted here. If you are looking for a place to host your extension try GitHub or one of the other many hosting / source control platforms out there!
There are templates defined for referencing variables, function, command, keys, manual etc. Use them for uniform experience. See Special:UncategorizedTemplates.
|What it looks like||What you type|

There are special categories defined for Operating system, Emacs releases, Programming languages etc. Use these when possible or introduce new ones as required. See Special:Categories.
