Additional documentation

These are all linked from Improve the Knowledge Base

  • About the Knowledge Base — is an overview of the mechanics of our Knowledge Base (e.g. prioritization and scheduling).
  • Markup chart — is our wiki markup reference. It gives examples and shows the markup that produces them.
  • How to use {for} — this is the special wiki markup that lets us show instructions for Windows, Mac, or different Firefox versions.
  • Using Templates — templates are reusable pieces of content. You can include a complicated set of step-by-step instructions in multiple articles by using a template.
