NpWiki is the wiki for Notepad++, the open source source-code editor and Notepad replacement. This site forms part of a network of Notepad++ sites that support the whole project.
NpWiki++ (pronounced n-p-wiki-plus-plus) is developed in MediaWiki, the wiki platform used by Wikipedia, and which is itself an open source project.
The primary aim of the wiki is to be a repository for all information about Notepad++ (NP++). Information is held in articles, which are stored on MediaWiki pages. There are a number of ways to access the articles. Search, on the left hand side (LHS) menu, can be used but at the time of writing, it does not produce good results.
The most productive way to locate articles is through one of the three browse mechanisms: browse by NP++ Usage, browse by NP++ Topic, or list all articles by their short title. All articles have a short title, which is the same as the page name that the article is stored on. Articles may optionally have long titles which are more appropriate for referring to articles in written text. The URL of an article will always use the short title.
In addition to the NP++ articles, the wiki site holds resource information for Plugins, Notepad++ and the Notepad++ project itself. However, the wiki site does not host software downloads. Downloads are still hosted from the same Source Forge repository.
For the convenience of community members, the LHS menu also has a list of links to the other websites that comprise the NP++ support service.
The last navigation box on the LHS menu is the MediaWiki-supplied Toolbox. This area is dynamic and changes with the context of the page being displayed. The tools in Toolbox are mostly for administration but from time to time, they will be useful for other purposes.
Wikis are community-built information sources. What we have done here is gather together articles from many sources. We know some are totally out of date and others need updating and we have left that to the community to rebuild with its collective wisdom.
You can browse the wiki without logging in. If you want to edit pages you will need to log in using your Source Forge identity (click on the 'Log in' link on the black SourceForge masthead) and then contact Chris for a NpWiki++ user right to edit.
