Tutorials and Hands On Practice


Versions

All wiki changes are tracked, so you can easily tell who changed what, and when they did it. The only caveat is when someone uses the Guest account to modify a page.
Revisions
Each time you modify a page (unless you just modified is a short time ago) a new version is created.
Diffs
When you click the Diffs (differences) link at the top of a page you can see what changes were made (and by who) for each revision. Deletions are in red, and additions are in green. Look at the Diffs for this page.
Security
To 'lock' a wiki page (like your homepage, or a page of personal notes), you can add this to the bottom of any page, followed by your full WikiName. ( i.e. Main.BrandF )
