The current version of Media Center Master is 2.14. Version 1.32 has been used for many the examples in the wiki, so beware that some of the options may be expanded or look different than various screen shots.
Official/Unofficial Wiki Pages Most of the content on the wiki was written by fans and users like yourself. If a page is marked as Official, then the content was written with official information (usually by the software author).
Major Editing may be done by:
- Creating a complete section with subsections, or a complete page in a "sandbox," then copy and paste the completed contribution into the "Media Center Master Reference Guide," or
- Copying and pasting an area the editor wishes to make revisions to, into the editor's "my talk" page, after making all of the revision, then copy and paste back into the related area/s of the Wiki to correct and/or update it. This allows an editor to edit, preview, and save a revision several times outside of the "Media Center Master Reference Guide," before deciding it is complete. Edits made in this manner are immediate result changes as compared to sporadic changes affecting a current on line reader's view of the "Media Center Master Reference Guide,"
When using the first method additional work may be required within the contribution and the "Media Center Master Reference Guide," such as: creating links in the contribution back to the Main Page - Contents, creating a page link in the "Media Center Master Reference Guide" for the contribution, creating links in the "Media Center Master Reference Guide" to sections in the contribution....
When using the second method additional care should be taken and self enforced, for example, and not just limited too: page titles and links to page titles in the selected area an editor is planning to edit.
- Copy and pasting an area back into the "Media Center Master Reference Guide" containing a change to a page title, e.g., correcting this page title link: [[Innstallking Media Center Master]] to [[Installing Media Center Master]] does not change the spelling of the page title and auto-update the links connected to that page.
- Page titles are links to pages.
- The links in the selection copied from the "Media Center Master Reference Guide" still active back to the "Media Center Master Reference Guide" while the editor is making revisions within "my talk."
- Should an editor change a page title (a page link), rename it.
- The editor simply created a new page link, to a blank page.
- The original page is still active under the old name, and all links in the "Media Center Master Reference Guide" will still connect to the old page.
- The new page/link will not connect with any of the original page/links.
When using either of the methods involving the "sandbox" area, the copy, should be deleted after double checking to see if the contributions are in fact present in the "Media Center Master Reference Guide." This removes any possibilities of editing the same material in the "sandbox," again, which could be changing the "Media Center Master Reference Guide" at the same time, without the editor's knowledge, through links.
