How to Add and Edit Imps Pages

 
Only registered users can add or edit pages.

 


Add a Page

To add a page under an existing page, log in if you have not already done so, go to that page, enter your desired page title in the text area to the left of the Add Page button, select Child, and click the Add Page button.

The new page will appear in Edit mode, waiting for you to enter content. Type into the light blue text area. Use icons above it to make text bold, italic, or to add headings or links. When done entering content, click the Save button underneath the text area (or first click Preview to check that it looks good before saving). You will also see a place to enter a description of the change you made. This is optional, and if you are the page's creator it is recommended only if you want to keep track of your changes. If you are editing someone else's page, it may be helpful to leave a note about what you changed.

To create a category (a page that serves as a place in the structure under which other items can be organized), add the following content:

!!!Contents{toc}

A category can contain additional content, but usually does not.


Edit a Page

Log in if you have not already done so, then use the Edit button at the bottom of the page. Note that registered users do not automatically have permission to edit all pages, but can create new pages and can edit the pages they've created.

James Richardson provides a good overview of codes for formatting text in How to format TikiWiki page content.

The code for indentation is a semicolon at the start of a line followed by a colon, like this:
;:

Using the indentation code in combination with two single quotes before and after the text works well for quotations. Thus

;:''Here is an example showing the use of "double quotes" inside a quotation.''

displays as

Here is an example showing the use of "double quotes" inside a quotation.


===underlined text=== displays as underlined text.

To display the underlining code just above, we escaped it (avoided its usual interpretation) by surrounding our text with the "non-parsed" code, like this: ~np~===underlined text===~/np~.

To display a dash, avoid using -- or ---, since text surrounded by them is overstruck, like this. Instead, use the dash symbol — which you can copy from here.


How to Add Footnotes

Example:

In Blume's outdated view, the Classic period of music{FOOTNOTE()}Sometimes dated from 1740 to 1828, from when C.P.E. Bach began service in the court of Frederick the Great to when Schubert died. {FOOTNOTE} used rhythm "with the finest nuance and sensibility," ...

produces:

In Blume's outdated view, the Classic period of music1 used rhythm "with the finest nuance and sensibility," ...

Putting {FOOTNOTEAREA() /} at the bottom of the page (or wherever you prefer) will make the notes appear there. For this example, we'll put them here:


1. Sometimes dated from 1740 to 1828, from when C.P.E. Bach began service in the court of Frederick the Great to when Schubert died.
