==Basic setup==
First of all you need an account, this is so other users can see who made the edits. To create an account just press the '''Log in / create account''' link at the top right of the page. You have to link your account then with the contact database. Enter your name under 'Your full name'. If you cannot find your name there, contact info@encora.eu, and ask for an account in the contact database. To then start editing this or any other page either click the '''edit''' link at the top of the page or use the edit button at the beginning of each section. This takes you to the '''edit page''': a page with a text box containing the ''wikitext'': the editable source code from which the server produces the webpage.
