Welcome to the HeroEngine Wiki!
This page gives general instructions on how to navigate around the wiki. If you are looking for basic HeroEngine information, start with Starting HeroBlade, or click on the Tutorials link at the top of the page, or head back to the Main Page. You can also get to the Main Page by clicking on that link in the "Navigation" box on the lefthand side of the screen.
This wiki database uses MediaWiki software, the same package that is used by many other large wikis such as Wikipedia.
A Wiki is a collaborative database of information, where pretty much anyone who reads the wiki, can also add or change information in it.
There are many different types of wiki databases on the web right now. The package that is used for this particular Wiki is called "MediaWiki" (the same software that runs Wikipedia). Their support page is here: http://www.wikimedia.com/ . There are many excellent wiki help files at their site, though keep in mind that they have a lot of rules and policies in place, which are probably not applicable in our HeroEngine wiki.
Navigating around a wiki is exactly the same as navigating around the web: Just click on links, to be taken to different pages.
Changing a wiki
To make a change to a wiki page, go to that page, and click on the "Edit" link at the top of the page. This puts you into edit mode for that page. Make any changes you want, click on "Preview" and then "Save." There's a great "change log" history in wikis, so if you don't like the changes you put in, you can always roll it back to a previous version.
An added benefit of this wiki, is the categorization system. When you are reading any page, you can click on the category link at the bottom of that page, to look at other similar topics. For example, to see other "Help" pages, click on the link at the bottom of this page where it says "Category: Help", and that'll take you to the "Help" category.
