 +===== 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 [[https://​pmip3.lsce.ipsl.fr/​wiki/​doku.php?​do=recent|here]] (you can bookmark this link) or look at the [[pmip3:​whoswho#​recent_changes|recent changes page]]
  
-It is possible to insert 3 types of note in the pages:+  * **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!
  
-<​note>​%%<​note>​My note</note>​%%<​/note>+  * **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//...
  
-<note tip>​%%<​note tip>My note</​note>​%%</​note>​+  * **Q:** How can I creat a new page? 
 +    * **A:** If you have **write access** to some or all pages, you should read the [[pmip3:​wiki_help_create|Page creation]] help.
  
-<note important>​%%<​note important>​My note</note>​%%<​/note>+  * **Q:** Why am I getting the following message ''​//This page is currently locked for editing by another user//''?​ 
 +    * **A:** Please look at the [[pmip3:​wiki_help_create#​page_locks|page locks]] information
  
-<note warning>​%%<​note warning>​My note</note>​%%<​/note>+  * **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. 
 +      - 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. 
 +      - 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//. 
 +      - If nothing above worked, get in touch with the [[pmip2web@lsce.ipsl.fr|Jean-Yves Peterschmitt]].
