    OK I'm still figuring out how to make this work right, but you guys are free to add areas, it should work now. I'm honestly not sure what does what, in terms of a page vs. a category vs. a book, but we're just gonna have to trial and error it until we figure out the best way to do it.

    Hmm, I just tried to start adding a few pages to Ed's Guitars/Gear page and got the same error DD got. But I haven't changed my password or gotten any e-mail needing a link confirmation.

    Trying to add a page to the Guitars and Gear category. Figured we'd have a page chronicling the history on The Frankenstrat, The Bumblebee, The 5150, etc., like the definitive threads in the guitar room.

    Ok so you tried to add a page in there, ok let me look. I actually made that category a book, I think using the books functions is the way to go with these things, because you can create a "chapter" inside the book.

    Looks like it worked! I just created the page, haven't tried adding any info. I'll contribute some whenever I can.

    Ok cool at least we know it's working. I'm going to try to figure out what sections we need. There's pages, categories, books, I just want the simplest way to do it.

    Ok so I think I have the structure the way I want it.

    Only I can add the main areas to the Wiki. And I've added some sections to get us started.

    Underneath the main sections like "Edward Van Halen" for example, you can create categories and then pages under that. So like we have the category under Ed called "Guitars and Gear" and then we can create a page for each like someone started "The Frankenstrat" one. So that's how we're going to do it. You can guys can create categories and pages...and sometimes an area won't require another category, just a page.

    Sort of make sense? I dumped some of the things I don't want us to use. We don't need to have a discussion area there, that's silly. I also removed the polls option, that's dumb too. I intend to start using the Wiki basically for EVERYTHING that doesn't connect to the forum. Like I want to move Ed's interviews into the Wiki that are still on the old site format...that is actually something I'm working on tonight.

    This can be a very cool tool. I can even have it link from the forum. So if someone types in "Van Halen II" in a post on the forum, it links to the VH 2 page on the Wiki. That's cool. I haven't turned that on yet.
