Navigation[edit | edit source]

One of the most useful tools in the Wiki is the Navigation bar on the right side of this page and the four tabs at the top left of the page. These are on almost all pages in the Wiki. To understand how to use these tools will allow you to search and go to all the main section of the Wiki.

Tabs[edit | edit source]

  • The 4 Tabs at the left top are almost the same as View on lower right in the Navigation bar. Each has a function on this page. Let us go to the top of the page and view each tab and its use.

A Great Resource[edit | edit source]

Lee Drew is a former Team Lead for the Wiki Support Group. He created a GREAT sandbox in which he placed many of the items we use in the wiki and how to use them. You may not need these now but in the future you will be very glad to have it. Please do not edit this page.
