A MemoWiki Topic
is a collection of Wiki pages (for notes),
(for details and comments on individual papers, books,
), data items
(for data values), and files (such as the PDF
files for papers).
The home page for a topic is a page which has the same name as
the topic. Topic names may include any characters and be up to 50
To start a new topic, first use the Topics button on any MemoWiki
page to view existing topics and their names, choose a name for your
topic, and then click on the Add Topic button to start creating your
topic. This will let you set up the first page of the topic (the
‘home’ page, which has the same name as the topic).
Note that currently a new topic can only be added by a local user
(running on the same machine as the memowiki server) or an administrator.
Note: Deleting a topic is potentially very destructive, so
MemoWiki does not provide a mechanism for this; instead, use your
Operating System’s utilities for deleting the topic directory and
its contents. A topic can be renamed, however.
