UtterAccess Access Wiki
To start a new "page"
Each page is an article that a member will post. To post a new page, copy the following and paste into your browser's address bar:
The title of the article will be whatever is specified by your_new_page_name... thank you for submitting your articles and ideas!
be sure to add this to the bottom of your article so it gets indexed:
Don't forget to try Searching for your new article name before posting. There may already be a similar article in existence that you could contribute additional ideas to.
Also please be aware that article names are Case Sensitive. So ComboBox is not the same as Combobox. It is usually recommended that one create as many redirect pages as there may be for different variants so the users will always arrive at the right page. For example, page titled "ComboBox" will actually redirect to the actual page titled "Combo Box". The redirect page contain only one line:
#REDIRECT [[Title of the target page you want to redirect to]]
Listing Your Article in the Table of Contents and Index
In articles add these links at the end of your article: [[Category:Table of Contents]] [[Category:Access Wiki Index]]
Remember that the links must match the spelling and case shown here.
In redirects include only this link [[Category:Access Wiki Index]] at the end of the page. Please DO NOT include the Table of Contents links in redirects.
Including these links will automatically insert references to the page in the Table of Contents and Access Wiki Index respectively.
Here are some resources to get you started:
