Editing Pages:

To edit a page, you just need to login and find the page you wish to edit (note, some of the main pages are set up that only administrators may edit them) and select the edit button on the top. You will see the wiki code of the page. To add text just type it wherever you want it to go on the page. (You may need to  include page breaks with the '<br>' symbol to ensure your text starts on the right line.

 

To include a header, use an equal sign before and after the text (i.e. =Header=) and two or three equal signs (i.e. ==Sub-Headings== or ===Sub-Sub-Headings===)

 

To add a bullet point, type an asterisk in front of the text. For another bullet point beneath that one indented further, type two asterisks in front of your text and so on.

 

Including Equations

If you would like to include equations, type them in as if they were LaTeX code between <math></math> (i.e. <math>\alpha^2+\beta^2=1</math>)
