New TNG Wiki users should read this PAGE to learn how the TNG Wiki is organized using categories and how to create / update wiki articles

Using 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

How to search in TNG-Wiki

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

  • The Help link in the Navigation section shows how the site is organized, and how to create new articles.
  • Try the Search facility. Put your keyword in the searchbox at left, then click the Go or Search button.
  • Click Go - or Enter on keyboard - to take you to the article, if it exists.
  • Click Search to search the text of all pages in TNG Wiki. Then choose from the list of pages returned.
  • Use the Categories section. If you click on the Right-arrow.png it will expand to show the list of articles grouped under that category. If you click on the Down-arrow.png it will contract the list.
  • Alternately, you can view a list of All Pages in the TNG Wiki.

TNG Categories

The TNG Wiki uses the MediaWiki CategoryTree extension, which provides an alternate view of the articles grouped in Categories as shown in the left panel. If you click on the Right-arrow.png will expand to show the list of articles grouped under that category. If you click on the Down-arrow.png will contract the list.
