js.wiki software we use is very similar to other types of wiki software, but has a few particularities. This page tries to provide some useful site-specific information and to answer some frequently asked questions.
We have tried to structure to the wiki so that it is as open as possible while at the same time providing areas that are more restricted to members of the community.
Each Theme has a defined area to contain pages related to their area of work - for example, meeting notes, to do lists, discussion pages, draft pieces of work, etc. By default, all pages in this wiki are publicly accessible to read. However, only authenticated users of the wiki (including both Voting Members and Non-Voting Members) can edit pages.
Each Theme section can also contain pages that are not able to be read by the public. These are, however, readable by any member of the community who has a login to the wiki (i.e. by both Voting and Non-Voting Members). In order to create such a page, it needs to be named as such:
<theme> is one of the Theme areas (listed on the front page and below) and
PageName is the name you've chosen for the page you are creating.
Theme areas are as follows:
You will notice that each of the Theme areas described above is preceded by
/en/ - representing the English (language) locale. There is potential for this wiki to include other languages, however, for the moment, we are only using the
/en/ locale for this wiki. Normally, the locale will be automatically added for you when you create a page.
Currently, there are two other areas of the wiki:
There are also a few other pages (for example, this one!) that are not included in any specific area of the wiki. These are generally non-specific pages that are generally useful and/or contain information applicable to multiple other areas of the wiki.
It is likely in the future that other areas of the wiki will organically develop - for example, the Education Theme area of the wiki is for organising and documenting the work and activities of the Education Theme, but actual education topics (such as learning materials) are likely to be placed somewhere else (for example, in an area dedicated to the DataSHIELD release that those learning materials relate to).

Remember to assign tags!
This is one of the peculiarities of
js.wiki: you don't.
What you do is just create the page however you like - for more info, see https://docs.requarks.io/guide/structure
The key thing to bear in mind, though, is to make sure that your page is finadble. For example, if you create a new page somewhere, you probably want to go back to an index/main page (e.g. the front page, or the main page for whichever is the most relevant Theme) and make sure there is a link to your new page. Otherwise it's difficult for people to find it!
The best way to find what you're looking for is to use tags.
