NOTE: When first using TWiki, it will probably seem strange to be able to change other people"s postings - we"re used to separating individual messages, with email, message boards, non-Wiki collaboration platforms. Don"t worry about it. You can"t accidentally delete important stuff - you can always check previous versions, and copy-and-paste from them if you want to undo any changes. After a short while, TWiki-style free-form communication becomes second-nature. You"ll expect it everywhere!

You can attach any type of file to a topic - documents, images, programs, whatever - where they can be opened, viewed, or downloaded.
  • Attaching files is just like including a file with an email.
    1. Go back to your sandbox topic and click on the [Attach] link at the bottom.
Changed:

8. Get email alerts whenever pages are changed...

WebNotify is a subscription service that automatically notifies you by email when topics change in a TWiki web. This is a convenience service - for many people, checking email is easier than checking the Web.
Changed:
<

  • If you're using TWiki to collaborate on a project, it's important to know when anyone on your team posts an update. If you're following a specific discussion, it's convenient to know when there's new input.
  • Alerts are emailed as links to individual topics that've been changed in a set period: each day, every hour, whatever is configured for your system.
  • It's strongly recommended that you try out the service by subscribing to each TWiki web that's relevant to you. You can subscribe and unsubscribe instantly, on a per web basis using WebNotify.

A TWikiSite is divided into webs; each one usually represents one area of collaboration. You can navigate the webs from the upper right corner of each web page.

  • Each web has hyperlinked topics, displayed as pages in your browser.
  • The home page in each web is the WebHome topic.
Changed:
<
<
  • To browse a UAIWiki web, just click on any highlighted link. These links are called WikiWords and comprise two or more words with initial capitals, run together.

Changed:
<

  • Edit - add to or edit the topic (discussed later)
  • Ref-By - find out what other topics link to this topic (reverse link)
  • Attach - attach files to a topic (discussed later)
  • Diffs - topics are under revision control. Diffs shows you the complete change history of the topic, e.g. who changed what and when.
  • r1.3 | > | r1.2 | > | r1.1 - view a previous version of the topic or the difference between two revisions
  • More - additional controls, like Rename/move, version control and setting the topic parent.

6. Change a page and create a new one:

Go to the Test? topic of the UAIWiki.Test web. This web is the sandbox where you can make changes at will.
  • Press the Edit link. You are now in edit mode and you can see the source of the page. (Go to a different topic like TestTopic3? in case you see a "Topic is locked by an other user" warning.)

7. Upload files as page Attachments:

You can attach any file to a topic, not unlike attachments to an email.
  • Go back to your sandbox topic and click on the Attach link at the bottom.
  • Browse for any file you would like to attach; enter an optional comment.
  • Upload and attach the file.
  • Do this again with a JPG or GIF image file.
  • Checkmark the box "Create a link to the attached file at the end of the topic."
  • Upload and attach the image file.
  • The image will show up at the bottom of the topic. To move the image, you can edit the topic and move the last line (bullet containing %ATTACHURL%) to anywhere you like.
  • If you have a GIF or JPG image of yourself, why not upload it now to your personal topic?

8. Get email alerts when topics change:

It is very important that team members are kept in sync of changes.
  • WebNotify (one per UAIWiki web) is a subscription service to be automatically notified by email when topics change in a UAIWiki web. This is a convenient service, so you do not have to come back and check all the time to see if something has changed.
  • It is strongly recommended that you subscribe to the UAIWiki web(s) relevant to your work.

7. Use your browser to upload files as page attachments...

You can attach any type of file to a topic - documents, images, programs, whatever - where they can be opened, viewed, or downloaded.
  • Attaching files is just like including a file with an email.
    1. Go back to your sandbox topic and click on the [Attach] link at the bottom.
    2. Click [Browse] to find a file on your PC that you'd like to attach; enter an optional comment; leave everything else unchecked.
    3. Click [Upload file], then scroll to the end of the page to see the new attachment listing.
  • Do this again - this time, upload a GIF, JPG or PNG image file.
    • Check the [Link:] box to Create a link to the attached file at the end of the topic. The image will show up at the bottom of the topic.
    • To move the image, edit the topic and place the last line (containing %ATTACHURL%) anywhere on the page.
  • If you have a GIF, JPG or PNG image of yourself, your cat, your sprawling family estate...why not upload it now to personalize your account page: Main.guest?

8. Get email alerts whenever pages are changed...

WebNotify is a subscription service that automatically notifies you by email when topics change in a TWiki web. This is a convenience service - for many people, checking email is easier than checking the Web.
  • If you're using TWiki to collaborate on a project, it's important to know when anyone on your team posts an update. If you're following a specific discussion, it's convenient to know when there's new input.
  • Alerts are emailed as links to individual topics that've been changed in a set period: each day, every hour, whatever is configured for your system.
  • It's strongly recommended that you try out the service by subscribing to each TWiki web that's relevant to you. You can subscribe and unsubscribe instantly, on a per web basis using WebNotify.

That's it! You're now equipped with all the TWiki essentials. You are ready to roll.

NOTE: When first using TWiki, it will probably seem strange to be able to change other people's postings - separated messages is the online rule, with email, message boards, non-Wiki collaboration platforms. Don't worry about it. Nothing gets lost, you can always check previous versions, and copy-and-paste from them if you want to revert after saving a change. Use TWiki for a short while, and you'll want this sort of natural communications freedom...everywhere!

After a short while, TWiki-style free-form communication becomes second-nature. You'll expect it everywhere!

2. Take a tour around:

  • UAIWiki is divided up into webs; each one represents one area of collaboration. The webs are accessible at the upper right corner of each web page.
  • Each web has hyper-linked topics. A topic is one web page in your browser.

2. Take a whirlwind tour:

A UAIWiki site is divided into webs; each one usually represents one area of collaboration. You can navigate the webs from the upper right corner of each web page.
  • Each web has hyperlinked topics, displayed as pages in your browser.

  • The home page in each web is the WebHome topic.
  • To browse a UAIWiki web, just click on any highlighted link. These links are called WikiWords and comprise two or more words with initial capitals, run together.
  • Follow the WikiWord link and learn what it is.
Line: 18 to 18

  • You can search each UAIWiki web. Enter a search string in the WebHome topic or the WebSearch topic accessible from the Search link on each topic. UAIWiki searches for an exact match; optionally, you can also use RegularExpressions.

3. Open a private account page:

5. Test the Topic controls:

  • Go to the WebHome topic to learn what we can do with a topic.
  • The bottom of the page has some links:
  • Edit : Allows you to edit the topic (discussed later)
  • Ref-By : Find out what other topics link to this topic (reverse link)
  • Attach : Attach files to a topic (discussed later)
  • Diffs : Topics are under revision control. Diffs shows you the complete change history of the topic, e.g. who changed what and when.
  • r1.3 | > | r1.2 | > | r1.1 : Allows you to see a previous topic revision or the difference between revisions.
  • More : More actions on the topic, like rename/move, version control and setting the topic parent.

    • It is strongly recommended that you subscribe to the UAIWiki web(s) relevant to your work.

This concludes the tutorial. Now you are ready to roll.

A side note: Initially it can be intriguing to change text someone else wrote. Please do not worry, nothing gets lost, because previous versions are always accessible (and also recoverable by the UAIWiki administrator if needed.)

This is a short, step-by-step tutorial to get you up to speed on UAIWiki.

  • Preparation:
    • Open up a new browser window. While you are working in one window, you can look at the step-by-step tutorial instructions in the other window.

  • Navigation and search:
    • UAIWiki is divided up into webs; each one represents one area of collaboration. The webs are accessible at the upper right corner of each web page.
    • Each web has hyper-linked topics. A topic is one web page in your browser.
    • The home page in each web is the WebHome topic.
    • To browse a UAIWiki web, just click on any highlighted link. These links are called WikiWords and comprise two or more words with initial capitals, run together.
    • Follow the WikiWord link and learn what it is.
    • If you know the name of a topic, you can jump directly to it by typing its name into the Go field on the top of the page. Type WebSearch to jump to the search page. Hint: Do not confuse the Go field with search.
    • You can search each UAIWiki web. Enter a search string in the WebHome topic or the WebSearch topic accessible from the Search link on each topic. UAIWiki searches for an exact match; optionally, you can also use RegularExpressions. Note: A search only looks in the current web unless you use the advanced search option.

  • Create your account:
    • To edit topics, you need to have a UAIWiki account.
    • Go to the TWikiRegistration page to create your TWiki account.

  • UAIWiki Users and offices:
    • Go to the TWikiUsers topic in the UAIWiki.Main web; it has a list of all users of UAIWiki. Your WikiName will be in this list after you register.
    • Go to the OfficeLocations topic in the UAIWiki.Main web; it has a list of corporate offices already entered into UAIWiki.

  • Operations on topics:
    • Go the the WebHome topic to learn what we can do with a topic.
    • The bottom of the page has some links:
    • Edit : Allows you to edit the topic (discussed later)
    • Ref-By : Find out what other topics link to this topic (reverse link)
    • Attach : Attach files to a topic (discussed later)
    • Diffs : Topics are under revision control. Diffs shows you the complete change history of the topic, e.g. who changed what and when.
    • r1.3 | > | r1.2 | > | r1.1 : Allows you to see a previous topic revision or the difference between revisions.

  • Editing a topic and creating hyperlinked pages:
    • Go the the Test? topic of the UAIWiki.Test web. This web is the sandbox where you can make changes at will.
    • Press the Edit link. You are now in edit mode and you can see the source of the page. (Go to a different topic like TestTopic3? in case you see a "Topic is locked by an other user" warning.)
    • Look at the text in edit mode and compare it with the rendered page (move back and forth in your browser.)
    • Notice how WikiWords are linked automatically; there is no link if you look at the text in edit mode.
    • Now let's create a new topic, your own sandbox topic:
      • In edit mode, enter a new text with a WikiWord, i.e.
        This is PaulsSandBox topic.
      • Preview and save the topic.
      • You can see a linked question mark after the topic name. This means that the topic does not exist yet.
      • Click on the question mark. Now you are in edit mode of the new topic.
      • Type some text, basically like you write an email.
      • A signature with your name is already entered by default. Note: Please note the Main. in front of your name. This means that you have a link from the current web to your personal topic located in the Main web.
      • Preview and save the topic.
    • Learn about text formatting:
      • You write text in WikiSyntax, a very simple markup language. Follow the WikiSyntax link and learn how to write text.
      • Go back to your sandbox topic end edit it.
      • Enter some text in WikiSyntax: bold text, italic text, bold italic text, a bullet list, tables, paragraphs, e.t.c. Hint: If you need to look up the WikiSyntax, click on the TextFormattingRules link located below the edit field.
      • Preview and save the topic.

  • Attaching files to a topic:
    • You can attach any file to a topic, not unlike attachments to an email.
    • Go back to your sandbox topic and click on the Attach link at the bottom.
    • Browse for any file you would like to attach; enter an optional comment.
    • Upload and attach the file.
    • Do this again with a JPG or GIF image file.
    • Checkmark the box "Create a link to the attached file at the end of the topic."
    • Upload and attach the image file.
    • The image will show up at the bottom of the topic. To move the image, you can edit the topic and move the last line ( starting with <a href="%ATTACHURLPATH%/... ) to anywhere you like.
    • If you have a GIF or JPG image of yourself, why not upload it now to your personal topic?

  • Getting notified of topic changes:
    • It is very important that team members are kept in synch of changes.
    • WebNotify (one per UAIWiki web) is a subscription service to be automatically notified by email when topics change in a UAIWiki web. This is a convenient service, so you do not have to come back and check all the time to see if something has changed.
    • It is strongly recommended that you subscribe to the UAIWiki web(s) relevant to your work.

This concludes the tutorial. Now you are ready to roll.

A side note: Initially it can be intriguing to change text someone else wrote. Please do not worry, nothing gets lost, because previous versions are always accessible (and also recoverable by the UAIWiki administrator if needed.)
