The Chang Jiang Collective has instituted a wiki, a type of website that allows visitors to add their knowledge to its content, so that almost every page in this entire site can be edited by you, the visitor and CJ owner. Wikis are generally written collaboratively by volunteers, allowing information to added and published (pending adminstrative review) by anyone with access to a computer, web browser and Internet connection. For example, let's say you are looking at our CJ Manual and you think our section on changing oil doesn't include some vital piece of information, just click the "edit" link on the page and add your correction/improvement! Wikis are built on the expectation that collaboration among users will improve articles over time, as with many reviewing an item will uncover errors easily. These articles are constantly growing so they are never “complete” or “finished”. Be aware that all changes must be administratively reviewed and approved (to prevent abuse/vandalism). Once your change is approved, voila, you're knowledge will be shared with everyone!
Here, we've provided the guidelines for interacting with this wiki. The Collective grows with each addition to our manuals, dealer and parts guides and community connections. Please do your part to improve the Chang Jiang Collective.
The markup described on this page is for the default Text_Wiki rules; it is a combination of the WikkTikkiTavi and coWiki markup styles.
Just hit "return" twice to make a paragraph break. If you want to keep the same logical line but have to split it across two physical lines (such as when your editor only shows a certain number of characters per line), end the line with a backslash \ and hit return once. This will cause the two lines to be joined on display, and the backslash will not show. (If you end a line with a backslash and a tab or space, it will not be joined with the next line, and the backslash will be printed.)
Adding a New Document
If you need to create a new document, you can either type in the URL manually (as though it existed) or use this tool.
The delete/insert functions are useful for peer editing, allowing the adminstrators the ability to review what changes you'd like to occur.

You can make various levels of heading by putting equals-signs before and after the text (all on its own line):
You can put a picture in a page by typing the URL to the picture (it must end in gif, jpg, or png).
You can use the described-reference URL markup to give the image an ALT tag:
You can create tables using pairs of vertical bars:
|| cell one || cell two ||
|||| big ol' line ||
|| cell four || cell five ||
|| cell six || here's a very long cell ||
big ol' line
here's a very long cell
|| lines must start and end || with double vertical bars || nothing ||
|| cells are separated by || double vertical bars || nothing ||
|||| you can span multiple columns by || starting each cell ||
|| with extra cell |||| separators ||
|||||| but perhaps an example is the easiest way to see ||
