What are wiki user pages for?

User Pages are visible to any visitor, as well as to users and often combine a personal profile with any of:
  • your own notes
  • links you use often
  • your own blog or website URLs
  • a list of articles (wikilinked) you are working on, or have worked on


Two Wikipedia articles about the "User" page


Open any user's User Page by clicking their name when it appears as a link, as in the Users List
Open your own User Page by clicking your username at page top, or click this link.


Note: Your "Talk" page is the "discussion" page associated with your "User" page. I can be a forum of sorts...where other users post comments, notes, and questions about your edits (or generally about wiki content).

How can I upload an image to the wiki?

  1. Click on Upload file (link in left sidebar)
  2. "Choose file" lets you drill into your folders to select the image for upload. Watch for the "filename" on completion, it will look like this:  File:NameOfImage.jpg 
  3. Use that filename to insert the image into the document. Here is a Wikipedia article about image markup (link)
  4. Or, you could just start with this and format the image later:  [[File:NameOfFile.jpg|250px|Caption text for image here.]]  (insert name of your file)

Help! The spam filter is blocking my link!

For now, notify wiki admins with the actual URL, then replace the blocked link with a placeholder (i.e., name of website) and save your edits.
