To do this on WTS or Myriad, you need to use Firefox - it does not work using IE version 6. Before being able to use Word, the WebDAV Firefox extension needs to be installed so that the edited wiki page can be written back to the server. You are prompted to install the extension the first time you try to edit a page. The steps are:

  1. Click the small "W" Image Added Word icon at the top-right of the page.
  2. The first time you do this, you are warned "A plugin is required to use this feature. Would you like to download it?". Click "Yes".
  3. You will then probably be warned "Firefox prevented this site (wiki.ucl.ac.uk) from asking you to install software on your computer". This is a security warning and may be overriden by clicking the "Edit Options" button and then allowing wiki.ucl.ac.uk to install the add-on. You then need to click the "W" again to download the WebDAV Launcher extension.
  4. Click "Install Now" and then "Restart Firefox" to complete the installation.
