Welcome to your new DokuWiki

Congratulations, your wiki is now up and running. Here are a few more tips to get you started.

Enjoy your work with DokuWiki,
– the developers

Create your first pages

Your wiki needs to have a start page. As long as it doesn't exist, this link will be red: startplugin-autotooltip__default plugin-autotooltip_bigI'm a novelist and have an interest in space science and physics. I've been a programmer for more than 30 years and I like reviewing new and up-and-coming authors.

If you want me to review your novel, please look at my Rules on Reviewing page.

Please consider registering (see top of page) to help support this site. Your personal data isn't shared with anyone, but it makes me feel good.

Go on, follow that link and create the page. If you need help with using the syntax you can always refer to the syntax pageplugin-autotooltip__default plugin-autotooltip_bigFormatting Syntax

DokuWiki supports some simple markup language, which tries to make the datafiles to be as readable as possible. This page contains all possible syntax you may use when editing the pages. Simply have a look at the source of this page by pressing
.

You might also want to use a sidebar. To create it, just edit the sidebarplugin-autotooltip__defaultPhilip P. Ide index page. Everything in that page will be shown in a margin column on the side. Read our FAQ on sidebars to learn more.

Please be aware that not all templates support sidebars.

Customize your Wiki

Once you're comfortable with creating and editing pages you might want to have a look at the configuration settings (be sure to login as superuser first).

You may also want to see what plugins and templates are available at DokuWiki.org to extend the functionality and looks of your DokuWiki installation.
