These pages are derived from the public domain help pages at MediaWiki. See Help:Contents for an overview of all Help pages.

You can obtain a copy of the help system in this wiki for local use in your own wiki following these steps:

  • Step one: In a separate browser window, navigate to Special:Export.
  • Step two: You will see an open textbox asking you for a list of pages to export.
  • Step three: Copy the list below and paste it into that textbox. This is a generally useful set, making the resulting help structure in your wiki look almost identical to the one here. Note that the help files on this wiki have been modified from the ones on MediaWiki, to remove some interwiki links and the like.

  • Step four: Make sure the box "Include only the current revision, not the full history" is checked.
  • Step five: Click the 'Export' button.
  • Step six: Save the file to your desktop or other convenient location you'll remember.
  • Step seven: Download each of the Image files mentioned above (the export/import only copies the image descriptions).
  • Step eight: Navigate to Special:Import on your wiki. (You must be logged in as Admin/Sysop level to do this.)
  • Step nine: Browse for the exported file you saved, and click 'Upload'.
  • Step ten: Upload each of the Images to the new wiki.
  • Step eleven: If they haven't come across, manually edit Category:Help and Category:Category on your wiki.
Although not complete, at least this gets you started on a decent help system.
