To make a new page:

  1. Enter a new URL in your browser and include the "EDT:" prefix. For example, wiki.eclipse.org/EDT:MyNewPage.
    You'll be told that there's no text in the page. Click on the Edit this page link or the Edit tab.
  2. Click Wikitext
  3. Using the Wikitext editor, place the line at the bottom of your page (with double brackets)
         EDT:Category
    The category may not display correctly until you save your work. 

Marking the page causes includes your contribution on the Category:EDT page. This way we can make sure pages are appropriately included in the sidebar navigation of the wiki. 


To include code snippets:

You can set code examples to monospace by clicking WikiText and then 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>
