KTM User Pages
WikiWord title and type it in anywhere inside the edit window, along with your full user name (see below for full instructions). Click preview, then click save. 3. Your new WikiWord title will be highlighted in yellow with a question mark at the end: MyNewPage? 4. Click on the question mark. 5. The edit window for your new page opens up. Type something anywhere inside, click on Preview, and click on Save. 6. Your new page has been created and saved, and can be accessed from anywhere on Kitchen Table Math simply by typing the page name into a Comments window or onto a group page, hitting preview, and saving.
3. NOTE: Once you have the edit window open, you can see all the code that makes this page look the way it looks. It's easiest just to copy-and-paste that code, substituting your own name & page title where appropriate. 3. Decide on a title for your new page. The title must be a WikiWord. (WikiWords are also called camel words or bumpy words because a WikiWord must have at least two separate words with two separate capital letters & no spaces in between the two words.) 4. Optional but helpful:: Add your new page title under the first letter of its title. This is what Anne Dwyer's entry looks like (the 3 spaces & asterisk preceding her title create a bullet point):
NOTE: For 'newbies,' locating the correct letter inside the edit window is probably going to be confusing. If it's easier, just put your new topic anywhere you like, and somebody else can move it to its correct letter. Your new link will work no matter where you put it on the page. 5. NOTE: If you accidentally erase some of the pre-existing code in the edit window, no harm done. TWiki saves all changes to all pages, so nothing gets lost. 6. Leave one space after your title, then put your name after the page title, using your full user name. Examples of full user name: Main.CarolynJohnston, Main.BarryGarelick -- don't forget the 'Main' part or it won't create a link. Here's what your title & name should look like:
7. You may type in a one-sentence synopsis of the topic if you wish:
8. Click 'preview,' then click 'save.' 9. Your new page title will look like this: MyNewPage? 10. Click on the question mark. 11. The edit window for your new page will open up. Type something inside the window, click 'preview,' then click 'save.' Your page has now been set up, and you can edit it any time you like.
12. You will always be able to find your page here, in the User's Index. If someone erases the link by accident, we can get it back, because TWiki saves all changes to all pages. You could also just type the link back in again under the appropriate letter yourself. 13. You can always go directly to your page using its URL. You don't have to go to the homepage of Kitchen Table Math first. 14. You can create a link to your page anywhere on Kitchen Table Math, just by entering its WikiWord title. (For example, say you're writing a comment that refers to your page or pages. You could enter the WikiWord title of your page in the Comment, which would create a direct link to your page.) 15. If you started your page from another page on Kitchen Table Math, you can also put an index entry here to make it easy for people to find. Just enter the title under its appropriate letter, or at the top of the page if you have trouble finding the appropriate letter.
16. If you create more than one page, you might want to insert links to all of your pages somewhere on each individual page. That way you and others can easily get back and forth among your 'suite' of pages. To see an example of this, go to ChapterProject, one of the pages created by Interested Teacher.
