MediaWiki series 1

Ok So if you wanna make a wiki you gotta know MediaWiki. It is the most powerful Wiki software there is. So here are a few steps as a Wiki Admin myself.

When you create your wiki you must protect it from vandals So the mainpage must be protected so only admins can edit and change its length of protection to indefinite.

Now you are going to need to make some templates. But first you need to learn some things.

'''Hi''' will bold your text
''Hi'' will italize your text

When making a category to a page you will put in [[Category:Enter Category here|{{PAGENAME}}]] the page name template is built into the software. It will allow you to type in {{PAGENAME}} and it will show the page name.

When you see {{}} That means a template.
