The basic unit of any wiki is a page. To add to or make changes in a page choose "edit" from the top of the page and make the desired additions or changes. Then choose "Show preview" from the bottom of the page.You will see two boxes. The top one will show what the additions or changes and the bottom box has the source where you can make additional changes if necessary. When it is o.k. choose "Save page" and the previous page will be replaced by a page with your additions or changes. The original page will be kept as part of the history available by choosing "history" at the top of the page.

To add a new item to chance news first choose a name for our item. This can be the name used by the news media or it can be a name chosen by you. Then using edit, replace the first available "item x" by the name you and chose. Using the preview check that the result is o.k. and if not make further changes using the source in the bottom box. When it is o.k. choose "Save page"

Now click on the name of your article and a new page will come up for your comments. Using edit, add your comments to the page. Using preview check this new page.
