Log in using the username/password you received in email when your wiki account was created. You must be a member of a GENI working group mailing list to get an account. Any GENI mailing list with a "-wg" suffix is a working group mailing list.

At the bottom of any editable page, you should see the buttons that let you change wiki contents: "Edit this page," "Attach File," "Delete this version," and "Delete this page." Once you choose one of these actions, you will get appropriate buttons to carry out the selection, as well as an editing window if you need one.

Someone else may be editing a page at the same time you are. If the original page has changed, the wiki will notify you of this when you use the "submit changes" button. Copy the text you were working on into your browser, look at the changed page, then use the "edit this page" button on the changed page, paste your changes into the editing window, and hit the "submit changes" button.

If you attach documents(s) to a wiki page, it is better to avoid proprietary formats (for example, .xls, .doc, .vsd), as there may be GENI users who are unable to read these formats. If you must attach a document with a proprietary format, try to attach a freely-available readable version as well (for example, .pdf).
