Wiki editing tips to help with your wiki editing fun.
December 10, 2012: Having trouble with tags? After clicking “edit tags” at the end of a post, start typing and the auto-complete function will provide a list of possible existing matches. If offered more than one option (i.e.schools and school), choose the one with the most existing links. Most importantly, use words that you would use if searching for that page. Happy tagging!
