This help is for MoinMoin with modern theme only. If this is not your case, the position and label of navigation controls may be slightly different. However, the function should be the same.
The screen layout contains the following parts (from top to bottom):
- Page header
- Navigation bar, a collection of tabs for quick links
- Dynamic message box
- Actions toolbar
- Canvas for page rendering
- Actions toolbar, same as part 4
- Page bottom
The first four parts are the most important and will be introduced below.
This part contains the following elements:
- Site logo (optional): it is also a link to the front page (home).
- User login:
- not logged in: offers a link to log in
logged in: shows your user name (links to your home page), provides a link to UserPreferences and a logout link.
Search bar: allows you to search this site. The default button (you get it by hitting <ENTER>) does a title search. If you want to do a full text search, you need to click on the other button.
- Page path: shows the path of the page. Clicking on the page title link will show every page that refers this page. If it is a subpage, you can click on the parent page to go up.
Page trail: lists the last five pages visited, so you can jump back several pages easily. You have to enable GetText(Show page trail) to see it.
This part is a collection of tabs for quick links. By default, there are three tabs:
RecentChanges, links to a page to show recent modifications of the wiki
FindPage, links to a page offering search and index functions
HelpContents, links to main help page
Dynamic Message Box
This box is displayed to show you some messages. You can click GetText(Clear message) to close it or it will be closed automatically when you move to another page.
This part is the links for the most often used functions:
GetText(Edit), allows you to edit the page
GetText(Info), shows meta information about the page, especially the full version history
GetText(Attachments), allows to manipulate attachments of the page
GetText(More Actions:), contains the following common functions:
GetText(Raw Text), shows the source code of the current page
GetText(Print View), shows a printable version of the page without the header or footer
GetText(Delete Cache), force the page to be recompiled
GetText(Check Spelling), invokes spelling checker
GetText(Like Pages), prints a list of pages with titles similar to this page
GetText(Local Site Map), prints a list of pages that are referred from this page
GetText(Rename Page), allows to rename this page
GetText(Delete Page), allows to delete this page
- Any custom actions you have installed.
This toolbar is duplicated at the page bottom for convenience.
