Welcome to TWiki! This is a TWikiSite
(pronounced twee-kee site
), a meeting place to work on common interests. Anyone can contribute using any web browser. TWiki looks like a normal web site... except that it encourages contribution and editing
of pages, questions, answers, comments, updates, etc.
"Wiki" systems are fundamentally editable web pages. It's a fun and useful way of communicating asynchronously over the web for many existing intranet and public Internet sites. TWiki is simple to learn and use. It aims to provide a transparent way for you to publish and exchange your ideas with others over the web.
What's in a TWiki?
- Webs: A TWikiSite is divided into webs, each one represents a workspace for collaboration. This site has the following webs: Forum, Main, NDSG, ORUA, OpsRes, Sandbox, TWiki.
- Topics: Each web is made up of hyperlinked topics (wiki pages) that appear in your browser.
Some things to do
- Browse. This is a site like other sites. Read and follow interesting links.
- Write. Speak your mind! From your browser you can change or add to anything you see in a TWiki topic. Modify content with an easy to use WYSIWYG editor.
- Experiment. Visit the Sandbox web and create as many topics as you like.
- Organize. You can learn to use TWikiForms and formatted searches with SQL-like queries to include topic information - for example, classify pages by subject, status, or date.
- Learn more. Some good places to start:
- TWikiTutorial is a 20-minute tour of TWiki essentials.
- ATasteOfTWiki is a short introduction training course for beginners.
- WikiReferences links to selected articles and books about wiki technology and online collaboration.
- WikiSyntax - simple wiki syntax for those using raw edit instead of WYSIWYG editor
- GoodStyle - recommendations for edits
