Editing the menu on the left hand side#

The menu on the left hand side (over there <--) is just a standard Wiki page, called LeftMenu.

If you (the administrator) don't want anyone else to modify it, you can always edit LeftMenu, then make the page read-only on the hard drive itself ;-).

The lower part of the left hand side is similarly called LeftMenuFooter, and it is fully editable as well.

Editing pages directly#

By setting up an InterWiki link called "Edit" in jspwiki.properties you can make direct edit links. For example, this link here (assuming you're using the default configuration from the JSPWiki archive), will take you to the edit mode of this page: Edit:JSPWikiTips.

The magical incantation in the jspwiki.properties file is:

jspwiki.interWikiRef.Edit = Edit.jsp?page=%s

How do I enable the RSS feed?#

In your jspwiki.properties -file, you'll need to set the "jspwiki.rss.generate" to "true", and also set the "jspwiki.baseURL" to point at your Wiki. Otherwise the RSS generator can't figure out how its links should go... :-)

I don't like ThingsSquashedTogether in the page titles. What can I do?#

As Finns say, "voe tokkiinsa", meaning "yes, of course". Just set the "jspwiki.breakTitleWithSpaces" property to "true" in your jspwiki.properties-file.

I have a question you have not answered!#

Well, the easiest thing to do is go directly to the JSPWiki main site and ask your question there. Or you could also email me, but it's better for all if you go and publicly post your query. It does not hurt to take a peek at JSPWiki site anyway, since your question might already be answered there...

Here's a short reminder on the most common formatting rules you have at your disposal. A complete list is available in TextFormattingRules.

(empty line)     Make a paragraph break.
----             Horizontal ruler
[link]           Create hyperlink to "link", where "link" can be either an internal 
                 WikiName or an external link (http://)
[text|link]      Create a hyperlink where the link text is different from the actual 
                 hyperlink link.
[text|wiki:link] Create a hyperlink where the link text is different from the 
                 actual hyperlink link, and the hyperlink points to a named Wiki. 
                 This supports interWiki linking.

*                Make a bulleted list (must be in first column). Use more (**) 
                 for deeper indentations.
#                Make a numbered list (must be in first column). Use more (##, ###) 
                 for deeper indentations.

!, !!, !!!       Start a line with an exclamation mark (!) to make a heading. 
                 More exclamation marks mean bigger headings.

__text__         Makes text bold.
''text''         Makes text in italics (notice that these are single quotes ('))
{{text}}         Makes text in monospaced font.
;term:def        Defines 'term' with 'def'.  Use this with empty 'term' to make short comments.
\\               Forced line break (please use sparingly).

|text|more text| Makes a table. Double bars for a table heading.

Don't try to use HTML, since it just won't work.

To embed images just put them available on the web using one of the approved formats, and they will get inlined automatically. To see the list of approved formats, go check SystemInfo.

To make a code block, use triple {'s to open, and triple }'s to close.

(Wondering where this text comes from? It's on a page called Edit Page Help, which you can edit too!)
