Welcome to the Wikidot handbook. This is a community edited website and any member of wikidot can contribute.

If you wonder where to contribute look at the table below. There are the main sections to look at or a whole site map on the left menu if you want an overview. But please have a look on the Conventions for translations page which collects the conventions used and the Magic Language Navigation and the new page which explains the technical methods.
There is also a wonderful explanation of the used technic for multi-lingual sites on the Multi-lingual wiki!

The Content of this handbook is split in different sections, representing the experience we have gained when we were beginners about essential knowledge of Wikidot and how to use it the best way we know. We've tried to order the steps so that they represent an easy learning curve.

In the future, the menu on the left side will show the "headings" of the sections as a starting page with an overview.

Please feel free to contribute if you think you can help!
