General tips & advice

  • Stay calm! Don't be upset if someone else edits something you wrote. Often folks notice the article on the Recent Changes page and add or correct bits they notice. This is a collaborative project and people are just trying to help you out. If you need to talk about things for a particular article, use the discussion/talk page (each article has their own).
  • When you make changes to a section of any article, work from the current version of the article rather than pasting in an older version. That way you avoid undoing the linkage, spelling, and grammar bits that contributors have helped fix. Not everyone is a wiki writing expert, but everyone can try to work with the material in a collaborative manner so that their information/spelling/linking/grammar mistakes can be covered by the skills and knowledge of others.

Searching for High Fidelity Documentation

To search general articles, simply type the keywords you are searching for in the "search" box on the upper right side of this page, then press enter or click on the magnifying glass icon to view the results.

Keep in mind that this quick search only searches main articles in the wiki. If you do not find what you are looking for, a more advanced search can be done at the very bottom of the search results page. Type the keyword you are searching for, and check the check boxes next to the areas (known as namespaces) you wish to search. A "check all" box is also provided in the event that the areas which you wish to search include more namespaces than exceptions.

Using other search tools

Google also has most of the wiki indexed, and can be a far better search tool than the built-in wiki search. In Google's keyword search box, using the term site:mediawiki.highfidelity.com will restrict the results which Google returns to be only from the High Fidelity wiki website.
