 +====== How to make changes ======
 +
 +===== Introduction =====
 +
 +Wiki is Hawaiian for quick. The point of wiki code is to make creating and editing pages quick and easy to do. The syntax is very simple.\\
 +
 +At the bottom of each page there is a **link to edit this page**. This link will open the edit window. The edit window will show the "​code"​ that creates the page. Chances are, it will look a lot like straight text. In the edit window there are four sentences of instruction,​ a tool bar and the edit window.\\
 +
 +Hovering over each button on the tool bar will tell you what each tool does. 
 +  * [[http://​www.dokuwiki.org/​syntax|The basics of wiki syntax]]. The whole point of a wiki is quick editing. With the help of the tool bar, the basics are easy. Bold,​Underline,​ and Italics should be pretty self explanatory. Links are pretty easy as well. The one trick is to rename your link, put a pipe | after the url and before the end brackets ]].
 +  * Editing gotcha number 1! Preview does not save. The save button is up on top of the preview, not at the bottom.
 +  * This wiki has <fc #​0000FF>​fontcolor</​fc>​ installed. If you know hex colors, you can use any color you want. <fc #​244331>​This is #​244331.</​fc>​ <fc #​FF0000>​This is #​FF000.</​fc> ​
 +
 +
 +
 +The [[wiki:​syntax|Formatting Syntax]] tells you all about it in great detail. The one thing is, if it is not in the syntax, it may not be supported.\\
 +
 +===== Headings =====
 + Do not use headings to make the font larger. The headings create the table of contents on each page. The first Heading button, {{ :​h1.png?​nolink&​50 |}}creates a heading on the same level you are on at that point. [[Heading Examples|This is a sample page of headings]]
 +
 +===== Paragraph Breaks =====
 +
 +To insert an line break, you need to insert two backslashes ''​\\''​. the code button allows you to see the slashes instead of creating a new line.
