Organization of Content
Find the appropriate help section for your content. For application specific help, browse to the appropriate category (e.g. Winamp) and create a page under that section. For general customization help, create a page under the main help section.
In each section, there are placeholders for 3 default pages: use, create and customize. These should be used like so:
- How to Use a Winamp Skin – information about downloading, installing and using a skin.
- How to Create a Winamp Skin – a guide to the process of creating a skin, info about skin format, graphics etc.
- How to Customize Winamp – tips, tricks, tweaks and other useful info about customizing the application.
For details of how to style the content of a page, as well as adding links etc, please see Formatting.
How to Create a New Page
If you can’t find an appropriate page for your content, you can create a new one. First make sure you’re using the relevant section (see above). Then simply edit an existing page and add a link to your new page.
For application help sections (e.g. Winamp) link to a page like this:
[Your Page Title] – this will create a link to /winamp/help/Your_Page_Title
To link to a main help section page (from anywhere) link to the page like this:
[[Your Page Title]] – this will create a link to /help/Your_Page_Title
Then, click the link you’ve added to create that page.
How to Add an Image
Go to the Image Pool page and upload the image you want to use. Then copy and paste the embed code from that page into any help page to embed the image (example below). Clicking on an image will load the full sized image in a preview window.
Images will be embedded with a 400px width (large size). To use a smaller sized image (175px width) change the embed code from image to image-small e.g.
How to Monitor Changes
Currently, only members can edit pages. However, it is still important to monitor activity to improve the wiki and also to prevent spam. The latest changes are listed on the Recent Help Changes page which can be accessed through the Latest tab.
Each wiki page has a history, which allows you to see who changed what, and to easily revert back to older versions of the page.
