You have reached a TWikiSite (pronounced twee-kee site). TWiki is a meeting place where people collaborate on common interests. Anyone can contribute using a regular Web browser. TWiki looks like a normal Web site, but it allows (and encourages) everyone to freely edit the pages by contributing questions, answers, comments, changes - ideas can be transformed into published input, instantly. TWiki is very simple to learn and use, and provides possibly the most powerful way to exchange and develop ideas online, in an open, uncomplicated environment.

Welcome to TWiki! This is a TWikiSite (pronounced twee-kee site), a meeting place to work on common interests. Anyone can contribute using any web browser. TWiki looks like a normal Web site... except that it encourages contribution and editing of pages, questions, answers, comments and updates.

Mission: "TWiki is a leading-edge, web-based collaboration platform targeting the corporate intranet world. TWiki fosters information flow within an organization; lets distributed teams work together seamlessly and productively; and eliminates the one-webmaster syndrome of outdated intranet content."

"Wiki" systems are fundamentally editable web pages. It's a fun and useful way of communicating asynchronously over the web for many existing intranet and public Internet sites. TWiki is simple to learn and use. It aims to provide a transparent way for you to publish and exchange your ideas with others over the web.

  1. Read: You can treat this site like any other. Browse, and follow interesting links. A couple of hints:
    • web: A TWikiSite is divided into webs; each one represents one subject, one area of collaboration. You can reach any web from the links in the upper right corner of every page.
    • topic: Each web is made up of hyperlinked topics - TWikiTopics that appear in your browser.
    • What's new: Visit WebChanges in any TWiki web to see what other people are discussing and what's been added most recently.
  2. Create an Account: To be able to write new content on this site, you'll need to create an account for yourself. It's simple, and only takes a minute: just visit TWikiRegistration and fill out the form. This will also create your personal home page.
  3. Write: If you have something to say, speak your mind! Anyone can change or add to anything they see written in a TWiki topic. You can edit a topic from within your browser, using TWikiShorthand, a very simple markup language (you can also use HTML if you like, but you'll usually find you can get the same results more easily with TWikiShorthand). To contribute:
    • click the Edit link at the bottom of the page, edit the text, and then
    • click the [ Preview Changes ] button at the bottom of the page to see what your topic will look like (use your brower's Back button if you want to make changes), and finally
    • click the [ Save Changes ] to save what you did.
  4. Do you find this...scary?! Anybody can do anything! That's not how things are usually done. It's...uncontrollable. And yet, collaborating in the Wiki way works! Try it out for even a couple of minutes. Take a look at WikiCulture. (And then, with TWiki, you can define fine-grained TWikiAccessControl, based on users and groups, whenever and wherever you feel its necessary, across a site, a web, or page by page, if you like. And there's also full revision control that retains all changes, for good measure!)
  5. Experiment: To get your virtual hands dirty, visit Sandbox web, where you can try out anything at all, in a consequence-free environment!
  6. Create a link: To link to another topic, start by editing an existing topic.
    • To create a link to a topic that already exists, type its JoinCapitalizedWords name (topics are automatically linked if they are WikiWords, names composed of two or more words with initial capitals, run together).
    • To create a link to a page that does not yet exist, make up and enter a NeverBeforeUsedPhrase. You are encouraged to include WikiWords in your content, for others to fill out later.
    • When you've saved the topic, and redisplayed it, the references to existing topics will be linked and the references to topics that don't exist will be followed by a linked "?" (question mark).
  7. Create a topic:
    • To write something up for a new topic, click on the "?" (question mark) that follows a WikiWord.
    • To create a free-floating topic - a topic that is not linked from anywhere - type its WikiWord in the entry field at the top of any page. If the topic already exists you'll then be taken to it. If it doesn't exist, you'll then have the option to create it.
  8. See the history of a topic: Click the Diffs link on the control strip at the bottom of every page to see a complete history of edits for that topic.
  9. Attach files: Use your browser to upload and attach any type of file to a topic using the Attach link at the bottom of the page.
  10. Organize: Use TWikiForms to include specific information with individual topics - for example, classify pages by subject, status, or date.
  11. Learn more: TWikiTutorial takes you on a 20-minute tour of the TWiki essentials. WikiReferences links to selected articles and books about online collaboration, and Wiki technology in particular.

Main Features of TWiki

  • Create and edit pages, and use all other features, through any Web browser.
  • Web pages are automatically linked. You do not need to learn HTML commands to link pages.

  • All changes to pages and attachments are under revision control. Find out who changed what and when.
  • Fine-grained access control based on users and groups.
  • Automatic email notification when pages change.
  • File attachments: Upload and download any file as an attachment to a page, using your browser. This is similar to email file attachments, but it happens on web pages.
  • Topic locking: Users are warned if a page is being edited by another person, to avoid simultaneous page editing.
  • Templates and skins: Customize every possible aspect of the look and feel of each TWiki installation, down to the individual page level.
  • Plugins: A growing collection of plugins allows you to easily add optional extended functions, or to create your own.

  1. Browse This is a site like other sites. Read and follow interesting links.
    • web: A TWikiSite is divided into webs, each one represents an area for collaboration. Your site has the following webs: Main | TWiki | Know | Sandbox
    • topic: Each web is made up of hyperlinked topics (TWikiTopics) that appear in your browser.
    • WebChanges: in each TWiki web to find what's new
  2. Write Speak your mind! From your browser you can change or add to anything you see in a TWiki topic. Use regular text, HTML or TWikiShorthand. To contribute:
    • Create An Account To be able to edit or write new content, you'll need to create an account for yourself. It's simple, and only takes a minute. TWikiRegistration This will also create your personal home page.
    • click Edit at the bottom of any topic and make your changes
    • click [ Preview Changes ] at the bottom to verify the topic (use your brower's Back button if necessary)
    • click [ Save Changes ]
  3. Don't worry! It can be scary at first to change "public" content. Please just try it. Revision control keeps all content, nothing is lost. For special cases, access control is available yet you may find you don't need it in most cases. You'll soon see how successful WikiCulture works in this kind of collaboration environment. This is new. Just try to relax.
  4. Experiment Edit your personal page or visit the Sandbox web.
    1. Link To link to another topic, start by editing an existing topic.
      • To create a link to an existing topic type its JoinCapitalizedWords name. WikiWords (two or more capitalized words run together) link automatically.
      • To create a link to a new topic, enter a newly UsedPhrase.
      • When previewing, the links show and "?" (question marks) are used to create topics.
      • Another way to create a topic is to type it's WikiWord in the Go box or URL.
    2. Topic history click Diffs at the bottom of a topic
    3. Attach files click Attach to upload and attach any type of file.
  5. Organize: You can learn to use TWikiForms and FormattedSearches to include topic information - for example, classify pages by subject, status, or date.

  1. Read: You can treat this web site like any other. Just read and follow interesting links.
    • Web: TWiki is divided up into webs; each one represents one area of collaboration. The webs are accessible at the upper right corner.
    • Topic: Each web has hyper-linked topics. A topic is one web page in your browser.
    • What's New: Visit WebChanges in any TWiki web to see what other people are doing here and what is currently being discussed.
  2. Create an Account: Before you'll be able to write new content on this site you'll need to create an account for yourself. Its simple, and only takes a minute. Just visit TWikiRegistration and fill out the form. This will also create your personal home page.

Welcome TWikiGuest,

you have reached the TWikiWeb? (pronounced twee-kee web). TWiki is a meeting place to collaborate on common interests. Everybody can contribute by just using a web browser. It looks like a normal web site, but then... everybody can (and is encouraged to) edit the web pages here and to contribute their questions and what they know. It really is very simple to learn and use.

How TWiki Works

  1. Read: You can treat this web site like any other. Just read and follow interesting links.
    • Web: TWiki is divided up into webs; each one represents one area of collaboration. The webs are accessible at the upper right corner.
    • Topic: Each web has hyper-linked topics. A topic is one web page in your browser.
    • What's New: Visit WebChanges in any TWiki web to see what other people are doing here and what is currently being discussed.
  2. Create an Account: Before you'll be able to write new content on this site you'll need to create an account for yourself. Its simple, and only takes a minute. Just visit TWikiRegistration and fill out the form. This will also create your personal home page.
  3. Write: If you have something to say, you can and should (most of the time). Anyone can change or add to anything they see written in a TWiki topic. You can edit a topic from within your browser, using WikiSyntax, a very simple markup language (you could also use HTML if you wish, but this is optional). To contribute,
    • click the Edit link at the bottom of the page, edit the text, and then
    • click the [ Preview Changes ] button at the bottom of the page to see what your topic will look like (use the BACK button on your browser to go back and fix something.), and finally
    • click the [ Save Changes ] to save what you did.
  4. But this is scary: Anybody can do anything! Collaborating the Wiki way works because of the WikiCulture. (You can define fine grained TWikiAccessControl based on groups if really necessary)
  5. Experiment: To get your virtual hands dirty, visit WebHome? in the TWiki.Test web.
  6. Create a Link: To link to another topic, start by editing an existing topic.
    • To create a link to a topic that already exists, type its JoinCapitalizedWords name (topics are automatically linked if they are WikiWords, e.g. names composed of two or more words with initial capitals, run together).
    • To create a link to a page that does not yet exist, make up and type a NeverBeforeUsedPhrase. You are encouraged to include WikiWords in your content, for others to fill out later.
    • When you have saved the topic, and redisplayed it, the references to existing topics will be linked and the references to topics that don't exist will be followed by a linked "?" (question mark).
  7. Create a Topic:
    • To write something up for a new topic, click on the "?" (question mark) that follows a WikiWord.
    • To create a free-floating topic, e.g. a topic that is not linked from anywhere, type its WikiWord in the entry field at the top of any page. If the topic already exists you'll then be taken to it. If it doesn't exist, you'll then have the option to create it.
  8. See the History of a Topic: Check out the the various "Diff" entries at the bottom of page.
  9. Attach Files: Upload and attach any file to a topic by following the "Attach" link at the bottom of page.
  10. Learn More: The TWikiTutorial gives you some more details on the TWiki.

How TWiki Works

TWiki is divided up into webs ; each one represents one area of collaboration. The webs are accessible at the upper right corner. Our TWiki webs:

TWiki Site Map Use to...
TWiki.Main Welcome to TWiki... Users, Groups, Offices - tour this expandable virtual workspace.     { Changes | Search | Prefs } ...get a first-hand feel for TWiki possibilities.
TWiki.TWiki Welcome, Registration, and other StartingPoints; TWiki history & Wiki style; All the docs...     { Changes | Search | Prefs } ...discover TWiki details, and how to start your own site.

TWiki.Sandbox Sandbox test area with all features enabled.     { Changes | Search | Prefs } ...experiment in an unrestricted hands-on web.
You can use color coding by web for identification and reference. This table is updated automatically based on WebPreferences settings of the individual webs. Contact fanamin@hotmail.com if you need a separate collaboration web for your team.
(included from SiteMap; change WelcomeGuest to include from SiteMap instead of TWikiWebsTable)

Each web has hyper-linked topics. A topic is one web page in your browser.

To browse this TWiki site, just click on any highlighted link. These links are called WikiWords, and comprise two or more words with initial capitals, run together.

To edit any topic, click on "Edit" at the bottom of the topic. You can edit the topic from within your browser, using WikiSyntax, a very simple markup language. You could also use HTML if you wish, but this is optional. (Before you can edit pages you need to register in TWikiRegistration.)

A highlighted "?" following a WikiTopic means that no content has yet been entered for that topic. You are invited to add some content by clicking on the "?". You are encouraged to include WikiWords in your content, for others to fill out later.

Please follow the TWikiTutorial to get you up to speed on TWiki. You can use the TWiki.Test web for testing.

Main Features of TWiki

  • Edit existing pages or create new pages by using any web browser.
  • Web pages are automatically linked. You do not need to learn HTML commands to link pages.
  • Very simple text formatting. Basically you write a web page like you would write an email.
  • Full text search with/without regular expressions.
  • All changes to pages are under revision control. Find out who changed what and when.
  • Automatic email notification when web pages change.
  • File attachments: Upload and download any file as an attachment to a page by using your browser. This is similar to email file attachments, but it happens on web pages.
  • Topic locking: Users are warned if a page is being edited by an other person. This is to prevent contention, e.g. simultaneous page editing.
