Updating the wiki is very easy.

Request an Account

There is a link in the upper righthand corner to Special:RequestAccount which allows you to request an account. Once approved, you can then log in and make updates. (We used to allow self-signup, but the wiki spam was a huge problem so now we approve accounts first.)

Edit existing pages

  • Click the Edit link at the top of the page or on any section.
  • Edit the page contents and click save.
  • If presented with a simple question about RT, answer it. This helps us keep the wiki spam to a minimum.

Add new pages

If name of the new page doesn't match CamelCase notation, like REST or Ticket use REST or Ticket.

You can use the following trick as well:

  • In the URL string of your browser write https://rt-wiki.bestpractical.com/wiki/NameOfNewPage
  • Hit enter and you'll seeing a page that already exists or a page that gives you the option to create a new page. Click the links to do that.
  • This trick has a trade-off, as a new page is not linked to from any other page. People can only find it with the search box, so you have to add links later.

Additional information:

  • WikiWishList - wish list for the RT Wiki
  • LowHangingFruit - improvements to wiki formatting which do not require extensive knowledge of RT.
