Edit buttons
Edit buttons give you all the controls over a page. Click "options" to see more.

Many pages are organized by tags. Add tags using the edit buttons at the bottom of the page.

Some categories (i.e., system) can't be edited. Edit buttons will not appear.


Internal Feeds
The ListPages and New Page modules do a lot of work on this website and create internal feeds. The News and Events feed is one example. (See Wikidot modules for more info.)

About RSS
Visit RSS Help for info and to see our feeds.

Feed Readers
Google Reader
Apple Mail application also has built in reader.

Social Networking
We use Social Networking sites to deliver feeds to people who may not have RSS readers.

Wikidot Accounts

Any Wikidot member can create their own wikis—something like up to 20 sites with a free account. Good for testing things out, creating a website, blog, research storage, etc. Go to "My Account » Account Summary »Sites and membership »My Sites.
