Getting Started

To create and edit pages at, you must be a member of the JACoW team and have an account. If you need an account, fill out this form.

If you are new to wikis in general, we strongly recommend reviewing the information at Editing pages. The links at left should provide all the help most users will need. The Documentation Index is another good place to learn about wikis and contains everything from basic editing and FAQs to more advanced topics such as creating forms and directives.

Editing Existing Pages

  • Click on the "Login" link in the footer of the page you want to edit. You can also log in on any page and then navigate to the page you want.
  • Click "Edit Page" in the orange menu bar at the top of the page.
  • If you want to edit a menu, or create a completely new one, please contact Charlie Horak or Stefano Deiuri . Editing menus can affect menus on other pages, so you'll need to create one that affects only your page(s).
  • Use the "History" function if you need to restore something.
  • Save your page before you leave it!

Creating New Pages

To create a new page, see creating new pages. The most important thing to keep in mind when creating a new page is to carefully choose the page name; it won't be possible to change it afterwards! In PmWiki, page names (URLs) are case sensitive and should not include spaces or special characters. If you make a mistake, delete the page.

New pages should be based on the JACoW web page template. Be sure to copy the template to your new page and make changes there rather than on the template itself.
