Using the PMIP3 wiki

The basics

  • If you are lost in the pages, remember that you can navigate back up to the main page by clicking on the links in the You are here line just above the page's title.
    You can also use the links at the bottom of each page to go back to this or the main page, and use the Index button at the bottom right to list all the sections/pages you are allowed to access, and go directly to a specific page.
  • If you have a read-only access to the pages, you can navigate this site as you would any other site.
    You may want to click on the Old revisions button at the top/bottom of each page, if you want to see who changed what (in the current page).
    Note that you can use the Discussion sections of the pages (when activated), even if you have only read-only access
  • If you have write access to some or all pages, you should read the Page creation help.

Questions and Answers

If you really want to know more, or if you get stuck…

  • Q: How can I see what pages have been changed recently
    • A: Click on the Recent changes button at the top right of any page, click here (you can bookmark this link) or look at the recent changes page
  • Q: What has changed in the current page since the last time I visited it?
    • A: Just click on the Old revisions button at the top/bottom left of the page. It will show when the page has been changed and by whom. It will also show a change summary message if the person who did the change did not forget to supply it!
  • Q: Why am I getting an Edit Draft button instead of the expected Edit this page button?
    • A: The page was not properly saved by the previous person. It is probably safer to discard the draft and start with a fresh version of the page. Click on Edit Draft then Delete Draft
  • Q: How can I creat a new page?
    • A: If you have write access to some or all pages, you should read the Page creation help.
  • Q: Why am I getting the following message This page is currently locked for editing by another user?
  • Q: Something must have gone really wrong, because the page that I edited and saved does not look at all correct. Help! :-(
    • A: It is always possible (though highly unlikely) that something you do drastically alters the appearance of a page, but this is not a major problem.
      1. Exit your browser, restart it and go back to the page you were editing. If clearing the cache of your browser this way did not help, try the next step.
      2. On the bad page, click on the Old revisions button at the top/bottom left of the page. This will show you all the changes that were done to the page. The topmost line (most recent change) should be the change you just made, with the Edit summary you wrote.
        • Click on the next (second) line, on the green pmip3:wiki_path link. This will display the page how it was before you started editing it.
        • You can then edit this old version of the page, without making mistakes and save it.
        • Or you can just edit it and save it without modifications, with an Edit summary looking like
          Page reverted to its old state of 2009/02/02 16:19.
      3. If nothing above worked, get in touch with the Jean-Yves Peterschmitt.
