Welcome to the new CCG wiki/blog! This is designed to be a much easier to use replacement for the old wml-based web space, and to be more quickly updatable. This page will help you figure out how to use it.

Documentation on the syntax for the wiki can be found here.

If you're having problems, see the discussion section at the bottom of this page.

Using Namespaces

Look over there to the left. See the sidebar? Hover over the “people” link. That link looks like “people:people”. This is an example of a namespace. The idea is to separate content based on categories. Therefore, the “people” page is inside the “people” namespace. When you click on people, you'll see the list of people pages. Each link that is created here will automatically be inside the people namespace.

To create a namespace, just make a link with a ”:” in it:

[[test:my page]]

This would be a page named “my page” within the “test” namespace.

One nice thing about namespaces is the ability to set up access control. So we can, for example, create entire sections of the bliki that only people logged in as CCG members can read. We can also add external users who are only allowed to edit pages within certain namespaces. Handy!


To add links to the sidebar, just click here and edit the page.

Posting to the Blog

To add a post to the blog, fill in a title in the “New blog entry” box at the bottom of the home page. When you do, you'll get a new wiki page that will become the blog posting. If your post title is “test”, for example, your page will look like:

====== test ======



Fill in your post after the headline. Add some tags that will categorize your post. Leave the “NODISCUSSION” part alone - this prevents comment spam. A final post might look like:

====== test ======

This is a test blog posting.

{{tag>test blog post howto}}


File-Level Access

Files for the bliki live in /net/wiki/dokuwiki/ccg/data/ . The “pages” subdir has the pages, “media” stores media… pretty obvious. You can edit and add files externally just fine - please remember to fix your permissions, though!

By using the [[http://wiki.jalakai.co.uk/dokuwiki/doku.php/tutorial/boxes|box plugin]], you can have many types of boxes on the page! Very exiting!

Folding Text

The folded plugin allows you to create folding text. This is handy for a variety of things. You can do inline folded textreveal hidden content or you can do

Block folding textreveal hidden content


You can do ++inline folded text | where the rest of the text shows inline++ or you can do

++++Block folding text |
| And include | tables |
| and what    | not    |

This is particularly handy for doing abstracts for papers:

Capturing Experiences Anytime, Anywhere
Abstractreveal hidden content

Code for that examplereveal hidden content

Bibtex Rendering

Using the Bibtex plugin, you can paste in raw bibtex:

author = "Daniel Ashbrook and Thad Starner",
title = "Learning Significant Locations and Predicting User Movement with {GPS}",
booktitle = "Proc. of $6^{th}$ {IEEE} Intl. Symp. on Wearable Computers",
address = "Seattle, WA",
year = "2002"}

and have nice formatted APA-style bibliography entries appear:

Ashbrook, D., & Starner, T. (2002). Learning Significant Locations and Predicting User Movement with {GPS}. Paper presented at the Proc. of $6^{th}$ {IEEE} Intl. Symp. on Wearable Computers, Seattle, WA.

Latex Math

Oh yes, you better believe it.
