This page describes the norms and processes we use to build this support site.
If you would like to add or edit content on this support site, please write to us on the Community Forums, briefly detailing your background and what type of contribution you would like to make.
Wiki.js is the engine of this support site, provides a basic wiki system, and smooth user-friendly editors.
The latest usage guide can be found on the official documentation site.
Wiki.js supports multiple page formats. Please use Markdown as standard on this wiki.
Wiki.js uses virtual paths, which means if you created a page with slug as
host/first/second/third/the-page each directory can a page, but only the page will be created.
Please do not create any additional top-level paths beyond what we already have, unless you have checked with an admin first. We are trying to keep the path hierarchy relatively organised:
installation: Setup, installation and evaluation of Endless OS
endless-os: Topics of relevance to general usage of Endless OS
apps: Information relevant to obtaining apps, learning and getting your tasks done with Endless OS
deployment: How to install Endless OS on a project basis (i.e. entire groups of computers)
dev: More technical content for developers, technicians, power users and experts.
We are looking to maintain a clean organisation of pages, so if you are creating a new page, you are advised to check on it's naming and location in the hierarchy before publishing it, perhaps by writing in the community forums.
The /help-center path is special, this is where we put documentation that was migrated from our previous, closed support website. We are slowly moving it into the new categories. Pages should not be added to /help-center at this point.
For pages that have moved or merged, Wiki.js does not support redirects, but we have a trick to achieve this.
If you need to make one page redirect to another, remove all of it's content and replace it with a brief message and a link, e.g. "Moved to [xyz]".
Please also apply the
redirects tag to this page.
redirects: Pages where we set up a redirect as above
Wiki.js supports pages in different languages, however, the entire process is manual.
Endless OS Foundation will focus on English content and work with community members to provide multi-language content and support.
