To make a new page:

  1. Enter a new URL in your browser and include the "EDT:" prefix. For example, http://wiki.eclipse.org/EDT:My_New_page.

    You'll be told that there's no text in the page, as if the page already existed. Click on the Edit link to open the Rich Editor.
  2. Click Wikitext
  3. Place the following detail at the bottom of your page, with double left brackets in front and double right brackets in back:  

         EDT:Category
  4. To return to the Rich Editor, click Wikitext again.  You might not see the category displayed correctly until you save your work.


Doing steps 2-3 causes the following page to include your contribution:  Category:EDT.


You can set code examples to monospace by clicking WikiText and using the following tags:

  • For inline examples such as x = y, use this tagging:
       such as <code>x = y</code>
  • For larger examples, use this tagging:

        <pre>
           
x = y;

           y = z;
        </pre>


You can copy content and markup from one section to another only by working in Wikitext or outside the Rich Editor.
