Confluence has been upgraded!

https://wiki.shanti.virginia.edu/ is now a read-only repository. It will be permanently decommissioned on December 15, 2019. Visit UVA's new instance of Confluence to create new wikis or modify existing content.

You can edit texts at the book level, or at the individual section level. See Texts' Structure for help. 

  • Edit an individual section to change the content of the text. Click the pencil icon next to items in the Table of Contents to begin. 
  • Edit the top section to change the metadata that applies to the entire text. Click Edit top section to begin. 

Why don't I see any text content when I click 'Edit top section'?

You can only edit the text content section by section. The top section may just be a placeholder that holds all the sections in the book. In this case, it won't hold any section content, though it may include metadata. See Texts' Structure for help.
