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.
1. Screen Layout
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.
1.1. Page Header
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 user preferences (Settings) 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 Voir le chemin suivi to see it.
1.2. Navigation Bar
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
Besides the default tabs, you can also add your favourite pages to this bar by clicking Ajouter un lien on each page or editing Liens rapides list in your user preferences.
1.3. Dynamic Message Box
This box is displayed to show you some messages. You can click Fermer ce message to close it or it will be closed automatically when you move to another page.
1.4. Actions Toolbar
