Hi Jaguar

I have also added a new article and struggled to find how to list it under sabre23t's "section".

Finally figured it out, you need to add the appropriate Category under your article.

Hmm! looks like you too have figured it out as I can see your article next to mine! :D

This wikia thing is yet another thing to get used to - the markup language is totally different from http or phpbb!

Thanks jaguar and rcmaps. I've added both your articles on to the home page for GPSMapsWiki. That's not automatic. You have to edit the home page. However users can use the (view all pages) link, to see articles not linked from the home page. O:)

Yep, learning Wikia's Mediawiki markups is another think to learn. But its one of the most popular wiki markup as used on Wikipedia. So, I'd say learning it is not a waste. :mrgreen:

Thanks Jaguar and Sabre23t,

I think I have now figured out how to link an article.

You will need to add category AS WELL AS edit the main page to insert a link to your newly created page. :mrgreen: :-'

Now added another article :D

Thanks Jaguar! :mrgreen:

Actually, the reason I started writing articles was to help out enthusiastic but inexperienced members offering to help map Laos & Vietnam maps but were too afraid to take the first step.

Need to encourage and support young blood! :)

It would certainly be welcomed by me at http://gpsmaps.wikia.com . O:)
However, I hope by "move", you mean "copying over the good stuff here" and not include "deleting the old stuff there". *snip*


I don't think anyone would notice if I remove my stuff there. If not, there won't be newbies asking questions that have been addressed in Wiki.(which often times make my BP sky rocketed!).

Anyway, first to come up would be my collection of website addresses that offer free Garmin maps. Stay posted!

I am having problems to access wikia. It often crashes my antiquated laptop(a celeron on w2k). :thumbsdown:
