20-Minute TWiki Tutorial

This step-by-step, hands-on tutorial gets you up to speed with all the TWikiSite basics, in mere minutes...

On this page:

1. Get set...

Open two browser windows, so that you can follow these steps in one window, while trying things out in the other.

2. Take a quick tour...

A TWikiSite is divided into webs; each one usually represents one workspace for collaboration. You can navigate the webs from the Home menu of each web page.

3. Create an account...

To edit topics or participate in restricted webs, you need to have a TWiki account.

4. Check out TWiki users & groups...

5. Learn the page controls...

The buttons at the top and the color-coded control strip at the bottom of the page have a collection of action links. Different skins show different links, but most will have some or all of:

6. Create a topic, modify a topic, and link to a topic...

Go to the Sandbox. This is the sandbox web, where you can create topics and add content to try it all out at will.

7. Use your browser to upload files as page attachments...

You can attach any type of file to a topic - documents, images, programs, whatever - where they can be opened, viewed, or downloaded.

8. Get alerted whenever topics are changed...

WebNotify is a subscription service that automatically notifies you by e-mail when topics change in a TWiki web. This is a convenience service - for many people, checking e-mail is easier than checking the Web.

That's it! You're now equipped with all the TWiki essentials. You are ready to roll.

TIP Note: When first using TWiki, it will probably seem strange to be able to change other people's postings - we're used to separating individual messages, with e-mail, message boards, non-wiki collaboration platforms. Don't worry about it. You can't accidentally delete important stuff - you can always check previous versions, and copy-and-paste from them if you want to undo any changes. After a short while, TWiki-style free-form communication becomes second-nature. You'll expect it everywhere!
