Quick Start

Creating a new page on a wiki can be counter intuitive, these instructions will get you though the basic steps.

2) if your satisfied that the topic is missing, search for it one more time, this time use the EXACT TERM you want your new page title to be.

Adding Manuals

To add a manual I use the following template:

;{{pdf|TM-11-5820-477-12.pdf|TM 11-5820-477-12}}
:Operator’s and Organizational Maintenance Manual for Radio Set Control Groups
::AN/GRA-39 (NSN 5820-00-889-3680)
::AN/GRA-39A (NSN 5820-00-889-5654 )
::AN/GRA-39B (NSN 5820-00-949-9909) 
::AN/GRA-39C (NSN 5820-01-196-0204) 
::2 January 1989


Adding Image Galleries

==Images==
<gallery widths=100px heights=100px perrow=5>
File:gra-39.jpg
File:Gra-39-l.gif
File:gra39r.gif
</gallery>


Copy that into the page, then edit the sections as appropriate:

The top line is
;{{pdf | FILENAME.PDF |  DISPLAY NAME }}
Add the filename as you want it to be, not what it is you will be able to upload it and rename it to this in one process. we are naming files based on the TM number, try to stick to that.
The Center section:
: TITLE
MODEL(s)
The Last Section is the date of the manual
::DATE IN THE SAME FORMAT ON THE MANUAL

Don't stress if it's not perfect, we can always fix it later.

When you save it, the link will be red, just click on it, and it will take you to an upload form with the FILENAME pre-filled, just browse for the file on your drive and upload.
