     1.5 +---+!! Welcome, %WIKIUSERNAME%!
     1.6 +
     1.7 +Welcome to <nop>%WIKITOOLNAME%! This is a TWikiSite (pronounced _twee-kee site_), a meeting place to work on common interests. Anyone can contribute using any web browser. <nop>%WIKITOOLNAME% looks like a normal web site... except that it encourages contribution and *editing* of pages, questions, answers, comments and updates.

     1.9 +"Wiki" systems are fundamentally editable web pages.  It's a fun and useful way of communicating asynchronously over the web for many existing intranet and public Internet sites.  TWiki is simple to learn and use.  It aims to provide a transparent way for you to publish and exchange your ideas with others over the web.

    1.13 +---++ What's in a TWiki?
    1.14 +
    1.15 +   * *Webs:* A TWikiSite is divided into webs, each one represents an area for collaboration. This site has the following webs: %WEBLIST{ format="[[$name.%HOMETOPIC%][$name]]" separator=", " }%
    1.16 +   * *Topics:* Each web is made up of hyperlinked [[TWikiTopics][topics]] that appear in your browser.
    1.17 +
    1.18 +---++ Some things to do
    1.19 +
    1.20 +   * *Browse.* This is a site like other sites. Read and follow interesting links.
    1.21 +   * *Write.* Speak your mind! From your browser you can change or add to anything you see in a TWiki topic. Use regular text or TWikiShorthand.
    1.22 +   * *Experiment.*  Edit your personal page or visit the Sandbox.%HOMETOPIC% web.
    1.23 +   * *Organize.* You can learn to use TWikiForms and [[FormattedSearch]]es to include topic information - for example, classify pages by subject, status, or date.
    1.24 +   * *Learn more.* Some good places to start:
    1.25 +      * TWikiTutorial is a 20-minute tour of TWiki essentials. 
    1.26 +      * ATasteOfTWiki is a short introduction training course for beginners. 
    1.27 +      * WikiReferences links to selected articles and books about wiki technology and online collaboration.
    1.28 +      * WikiSyntax - simple syntax for edits

    1.38 +
    1.39 +---+++ Creating a page
