Basic Help with Wikis

Editing this page (or any other page here is easy! Just login using your CWL (see the very top of the page) then come back to this page and click the edit tab above.

If you want to upload a file click on the "upload file" link on the left "toolbox" and upload your file -- to link your newly uploaded file to this page (or any other page) simply do type [[media:filename.ext | Any text you want]] assuming your filename is filename.ext. For example, to link to the project management slide I used [[media:projman.pdf|Project Management Slides]] which looks like Project Management Slides when typed in. To link to internet sites simply use the following (for example) [ Aluminum Automotive Manual].
