COMKAT website is now based on wiki, therefore allowing users to edit and extend the web content. Not all pages are editable for everyone. For example, we keep the software download page only editable by sysop. But most pages on this web site are open for everyone to edit (log in required). If you have never used wiki, follow the instructions below to learn about basics of wiki.


Register and log in

Every time you want to edit a page, you must log in. If you do not have an account yet, please register first.

Browse through pages

You can click on the tabs or page links to go a page. Or if you know the page name, for example 'Support:Official Documentation', you may type that in the edit box on the right upper corner and hit 'go to'.

Create new pages

Only sysop is allowed to create a new page. Please contact us if you need to create a page.

Editing an existing page

To edit a page, first go to that page. If you are logged in, you will see an 'Edit' link in the bottom. Click that and you will see a text editing box. The text within that box is the current page content. Here are some instructions of formatting:

Adding headline

Put headline text as the format: == Headline text == == is the level two headline. === is the level three headline.

Next line command

Add <br> in front of the text to move it to the next line.


Instructions: [1]

Add an internal link

To link to other pages within this wiki, use two bracket to add link. For example, [[Support:Official Documentation]] becomes Support:Official Documentation on a wiki page.

Add an external link

Use single bracket for external link. For example, [] will be [2].
