Help:Build a Site

Building a BluWiki site for the first time? You'll definitely want to check out this tutorial. Learn about clean URLs and how to set up www.YourDomainName.com.

Some Examples?

Basic editing

  • A good basic tutorial from Wikipedia.com
  • Want to use HTML? In many cases, it's possible. But why not give the MediaWiki markup a try? It's what BluWiki likes best (and is usually easier, especially with tables). If you want to convert HTML to Wikitext, try this.
  • Need to delete a page? Simply tag the page with {{pd}} or {{delete|Insert Reason Here}}. Please do not blank the page (that does not delete the history) or write "delete" or "delete please" (or some other variation). {{pd}} is a special tag that the administration sees, which alerts us to delete the page. More information is available at Help:Deleting. BluWiki is spidered through major search engines such as Google and all content is publicly available. Do not write or upload anything you would not want the general public to see.
