- Putting a link (see below) to a non-existent page creates it.
- Once the page is created, you can type text in it or use copy text from Word to Confluence. Some Word formatting will be retained.
- Each page in a wiki needs to have a unique name.
Attaching a file to a page in the wiki
Attachments are inconvenient things; don't use them if you can get away with copying text into an ordinary wiki page. It is not possible to attach files larger than 10Mb. Check in Windows Explorer (PC) or Finder (Mac).
Navigate to the page to which you want to attach the file. Before going into the editor, click on the *Attachments* tab. Type a brief description of the file in the Comments field and click Browse to locate the file to be uploaded into the wiki.
To remove an attachment, click on the Attachments tab and click the Remove button to the right of the file.
Navigate to the page and click on the Info tab.
Click on the PDF or Word link in the Export As field.
Note: Some spaces may be set up so that viewers don't have permission to do this.

Creating a personal space in the wiki
Please note that only members of UCL staff can create personal spaces.
Once you are logged on, you should see your name top right as a hyperlink on the UCL Wiki homepage. Click on this link.
On the page that appears, you should see a message saying \ *You can create a personal space to keep your own pages and news*. Click on the \ *create a personal space\* hyperlink.
Now you need to set the viewing and editing rights for your space.
By default personal (and global) spaces are only viewable by the person concerned.
Note: \ _Registered users - anyone logged into Confluence\_ has no effect in the UCL implementation of the software.
If you want all registered users to have access, you have to explicitly give access to group "ucl-all". For information about other UCL access groups, see: \[ucl-staff, ucl-hon, ucl-ug and ucl-pg are other useful groups. For detailed information about UCL access groups, see: www.ucl.ac.uk/upi/web-users/intranet-groups\]
You can also create your own groups and add people to them by clicking on the \ *Manage Users/Groups\* tab. It is not recommended that you tick \_Anonymous - anyone, logged in or not_, as this would expose your space to mischievous comments from the unscrupulous. The address of your space tab. It is better to use this feature, rather than granting permission to individuals, as it is a lot less work if you ever need to change the permissions in future.
It is not recommended that you tick _Anonymous - anyone, logged in or not_, as this would expose your space to mischievous comments from the unscrupulous.
