How to Edit Pages

Anyone with Editor rights can create a new page or edit an existing page in this wiki. 

Click on the Edit button on the right to edit the page. If you do not see the Edit button, you are probably not logged in. If you need an Cloudron account to log in, please contact Joachim.

Important: This is a co-creation space, so others will be able to review and edit your content. If you see this warning: 

XYZ started editing in the last 60minutes and to be careful not to overwrite each others updates. 

Do not edit the page and come back later (or contact the person currently editing the page). Otherwise your edits might be overwritten by the person who saves it last. For those currently editing pages, please save them as soon as you are done and don't leave them open (in a draft mode).

To track any revisions of your page (done by you or others), click on the "Revisions" link on the right of the page. You will see a screen like the one below, click on any entry to see what has changed on the page (text highlighted in red=removed, green=updated). If you restore a previous version, you will loose the edits between the current and the restored version. 


To add some additional highlights to pages, use the following under Formats > Callouts or Blockquotes:

To add structure to pages, see the dropdown in the editor called Formats and the sample below. Once you assign different headings, they will structure the content of the page and allow you to use a page navigation tool (on the left below). Don't worry about the formatting of the headers for now, we can change this for all pages in the Custom HTML Head Content section.
