Welcome to the wiki for the Cantello Family

What can the wiki offer us Cantello's?


Please take a look around this site - it is still a work in progress and as an organic site it will always be evolving. I would love to hear from you to give your thoughts as to whether you think this is a good idea that we should continue with. It is very easy to use (it can look and feel a lot better than now, I've just had a play around) and we could start developing this into a great website straight away - so feel free to edit away!

There are a number of reasons why I have suggested we start this site:

  1. It could help us better appreciate, record and share the story that is our family history.
  2. We can use pictures, video and audio - so that makes this a great place to share funny or serious moments alike!
  3. The site brings our story into one place where everyone can access it at any time and add information as they discover it or as things happen. It is a real-time history!
  4. Yet, we can keep it secret and only allow certain people to access the information.
  5. It could also help us stay in better touch and get to know more distant members of our family.
  6. This website is not just useful for us now, but in years to come will be a valuable resource and could be a source of joy for our relatives and descendents.
  7. We can mark special events and special people with a permanent record.
  8. We can maintain and grow our pride for our Cantello heritage!

Then there are some things you need to know:

  • You can configure all security and other settings online, using the Site Manager. When you invite other people to help build this site they don't have access to the Site Manager unless you make them administrators like yourself. Check out the Permissions section.
  • Your Wikidot site has two menus, one at the side called 'nav:side', and one at the top called 'nav:top'. These are Wikidot pages, and you can edit them like any page.
  • To edit a page, go to the page and click the Edit button. You can change everything in the main area of your page. The Wikidot language is easy to learn but powerful.
  • You can attach images and other files to any page, then display them and link to them in the page.
  • Every Wikidot page has a history of edits, and you can undo anything. So feel secure, and experiment.
  • You can choose different themes in the Site Manager, and you can write your own theme if you know CSS.
  • To start a forum on your site, see the Site Manager » Forum.

If you've already created other sites

Then we don't need to tell you how addictive Wikidot is. But maybe it's worth reminding you of some of the advanced Wikidot features:

  • You can run your Wikidot site on its own web domain name.
  • You can use Google Analytics to measure traffic going to your site.
  • Giving away free wikis is not enough for us — we are also offering you a way to earn money from your wiki using our AdSense implementation.

We hope you enjoy using Wikidot as much as we do. If you want to discuss Wikidot, there's an active community of Wikidot enthusiasts where you can share tips and ideas.
