TechNet Wiki Gotchas

TechNet Wiki Gotchas

"Gotchas" are sometimes also called "lessons learned" and "best practices" (it is a best practice to avoid a "gotcha"). These are the top "gotchas" or "issues" that folks seem to have trouble with on the TechNet Wiki. Please add any you have encountered.

  1. How do I get started?
  2. Where is the Edit button?
    • Most people find the wiki articles through internet search engines.  When you first land on a wiki article page, you see two tabs at the top of the page: Article and History.   If you are Signed in, you will see an additional tab Edit.
  3. How do I join?
    • Review this wiki topic, or this video demonstration.
  4. How do I find stuff?
    1. The search box on the wiki page is search of the wiki, not internet search or TechNet Search.
  5. How do I get back to the wiki home page?
    • The Home button at the top of the wiki page takes you to TechNet Home, not the wiki home. The wiki homepage URL is http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/ (you can bookmark it). The home button in this toolbar takes you to "wiki home."
  6. How can I figure out who wrote stuff?
    • The History tab is the record of all the changes to an article, when, and who changed them. To see what changed
    • To undo ("revert") a change, see How to Revert an Article Change
    • To see the information on the account that made the change, see All Things Profile
