-**[[/​wiki/​help/​getting-started/​editing|Editing the Wiki]]** \\ +A wiki is a hypertext publication collaboratively edited and managed by its own audience directly using a web browser, and this is no different. Wikis are enabled by wiki software, otherwise known as wiki engines. The "​engine"​ that we us is [[doku>​dokuwiki|Dokuwiki]]. A wiki engine, being a form of a content ​management system, differs from other web-based systems such as blog software, in that the content is created without any defined owner or leader, and wikis have little inherent structure, allowing structure to emerge according ​to the needs of the users. Dokuwiki allow content to be written using a simplified markup language. We permit control over different functions (levels of access); for example, ​editing ​rights may permit changing, adding, or removing material.
