== Using TNG Wiki == == How to search in TNG-Wiki ==

The TNG Wiki is currently structured into the following TNG Guides, anchored in the left sidebar:

  • Getting Started provides information on how to customize your site and create user pages
  • Guest Visitors provides information for how visitors might navigate your site
  • Registered Users provides information on how to use the capabilities of TNG as a Registered User or Administrator
  • Administrator provides information for the administator of a TNG web site (aka TNG Admin)
  • Programmer provides information to help understand how TNG works, and for programmers making changes to TNG.

The following entries under Items of Interest in the left sidebar are items of special interest which are also part of the other guides:

  • Reports provides a list of some helpful TNG reports
  • Mods provides a list of user modifications and add-ons to TNG.
  • TNG Glossary provides a definition of some of the terms used in TNG

There are several ways to find information in TNG Wiki. The items in the left panel are a good place to start.
