you have reached the TWiki web (pronounced twee-kee web). URCS is a meeting place to collaborate on common interests. Everybody can contribute by just using a web browser. It looks like a normal web site, but then... everybody can edit web pages.

Main Features of URCS

  • Edit existing pages or create new pages by using any web browser.
  • Web pages are automatically linked. You do not need to learn HTML commands to link pages.
  • Very simple text formatting. Basically, you write a web page like you would write an email.
  • Full text search with/without regular expressions.
  • All changes to pages are under revision control. Find out who changed what and when.
  • Automatic email notification when web pages change.
  • File attachments: Upload and download any file as an attachment to a page by using your browser. This is similar to email file attachments, but it happens on web pages.
  • Topic locking: Users are warned if a page is being edited by an other person. This is to prevent contention, e.g. simultaneous page editing.

How URCS Works

URCS is divided up into webs ; each one represents one area of collaboration. The webs are accessible at the upper right corner. Our URCS webs:

Warning: Can't find topic TWiki.TWikiWebsTable

Each web has hyper-linked topics. A topic is one web page in your browser.

To browse this URCS site, just click on any highlighted link. These links are called WikiWords, and comprise two or more words with initial capitals, run together.

To edit any topic, click on "Edit" at the bottom of the topic. You can edit the topic from within your browser, using WikiSyntax, a very simple markup language. You could also use HTML if you wish, but this is optional. (Before you can edit pages you need to register in TWikiRegistration.)

A highlighted "?" following a WikiTopic means that no content has yet been entered for that topic. You are invited to add some content by clicking on the "?". You are encouraged to include WikiWords in your content, for others to fill out later.

Please follow the TWikiTutorial to get you up to speed on TWiki. You can use the URCS.Test web for testing.
