How To Access A Wiki
A wiki is a very accessible system. It does not require any special technologies other than an up to date web browser.

The wiki user is provided by the wiki owner/organiser with a web site address where the wiki is located. This is typed, or copy/pasted into the address field of a web browser.

Some wikis are open access and do not require accounts. However, most wikis, which require a membership that can view, edit and develop the wiki's content, will need a secure login account for which they will have been provided with details.
