Well, today I have began a new adventure. I am attempting to enter the world of MediaWiki! I titled this article “Baby Steps” because that is exactly where I am.
I feel like a newborn baby trying to take his first steps!
Of course, I’ve never dealt with a wiki before. It took me quite a while to figure out the actual install but I finally got that. Then it took me about 30 minutes to figure out how to change the logo. It took me about an hour to figure out how to add new pages. It’s an entirely different world to me!
I am definitely not ready to unveil my wiki to the world right now. I am still piddling with it and will probably be piddling for a while. When I get a general outline and some semblance of a sane and readable “thing” then I will ask opinions of others.
For now, I just wanted to share with everyone my excitement at being able to just get the thing to show up on my site! It has a very definite appeal to it and I am very excited about what it can bring to my site. I can add as much info as I have but can also allow others to share their info by just typing it into the wiki. It has some very nice potential.
So, I’m off to try to take a few more “Baby Steps”!
