Reading and Navigating the Emily Carr Wiki

Check out the navigation page for an explanation of the basic elements of the Emily Carr Wiki page. The searching page provides help for finding information on the wiki.

How to Create a Page

Search to see whether someone has already written a similar page before you start one yourself. Click on Create a New Page under navigation on left sidebar and use the form for the proper namespace of your new page. If you search for a page that doesn't exist (using the search box and “Go” button on the left of the page) then you will be provided with a link to create the new page. Please note that you might have to sign in with your CWL before you can see the link. See the starting a new page article for other tips and methods.

How to Edit an Existing Page

Check out the editing, formatting, and linking pages for information and help on how to edit and format your Emily Carr Wiki content. Please note that you might have to sign in with your CWL before you can edit the Emily Carr Wiki.

Organizing the Emily Carr Wiki

The Emily Carr wiki is organized into different spaces to accommodate different needs:

  • The root of the wiki is open space reserved for articles relating to Emily Carr.
  • Course-based content or activities should be added to the Course space.
  • Finally, there is a Documentation space, for documentation, support and other similar content.

To add a page to Course or Documentation spaces, prefix the page name with the space name and a colon (either "Course:" or "Documentation:"), for example See Help:Namespaces for more information on how the Emily Carr Wiki is organized.

The Emily Carr Wiki is also organized by using categories and subpages.
