The purpose of this Wiki installation is to give everyone who is interested an opportunity to try it out and provide feedback.

I suggest you try posting some articles. Please don’t spend too much time entering content carefully - if we decide to use this cms, it is likely we will want to wipe the database and start again with correctly created user accounts.

No login is required to post new articles or edit existing ones, but feel free to create a login if you wish.

The thing we really need to assess is whether this provides a suitable platform for publishing the type of diy faq articles we were discussing.

For anyone not familiar with wikis, there are 2 important things to bear in mind:

1. The way to creat an article is by trying to view that article. If it doesn't exist, you are given the chance to create it. So say you want to create an article about plastering. Put the word "plastering" in the search box and click go. If that article doesn't exist, you get a link to create it.

2. Navigation. The system doesn't auto-create a menu, we need to do this. So for instance, I created some pages, and here are some links to them:
