Instructional Stuff on Using Wikis

  • PBWiki Central has lots of useful information on how to use PBWiki. Also check out Wiki Style and Advanced Wiki Style.
  • The Davis Wiki uses PmWiki, so their Davis Wiki Guide should be helpful to others using PmWiki.
  • Since the Wikipedia uses MediaWiki, it may be helpful to use the Wikipedia's Help pages, which offers lots of information on how to edit pages. Check out this page on How to Edit Pages in particular.
