Exclamation Announcing Sportsterpedia.com - The Sportster Wiki

I have started up http://sportsterpedia.com as a compliment to The XL Forum.

Unlike a Forum, a wiki is like a technical reference document or service manual. It is not a discussion.

http://sportsterpedia.com will adhere to the standard Creative Commons license so that anyone can use, share, and adapt the content. Only requirement is to give appropiate credit to the info when used.

Everyone and anyone can help build the articles based on their knowledge or from other citated resourses.

I have already built the basic stucture and now need help building the knowledge base.

If you are not familiar with WIKI syntax you can look here https://www.dokuwiki.org/wiki:syntax. Right now I have a WYSIWYG editor plugin installed so Wiki syntax is not really so important. I or others can fix stuff that does not look right.

Or if you have something you want to add you can send it to me.

I will be creating a category here to discuss wiki issues so we can all be on the same sheet of music.

Rule 1. For images use only your own or images you have permission to post. You can link images also.
Rule 2. Don't write, or scan in images of pages, directly from a commerical (copyrigthed) manual such as the HD manual, Cylmers, etc....
Rule 3. You must be registered to contribute.
Rule 4. Vandels will be banned.
Rule 5. You copy directly from XL Forum threads and posts as long as you cite the XL Forum author.
Rule 6. There will be NO advertising. There will be a donate button to help offset hosting costs.

Please have a look around at the wiki and let me know what you think. If you want to post on the wiki you need to register on it.

I would really like to have the help of a core team to help keep everything straight.

I have already worked on it for three days to get it to where it is now. I still need to work on the formating of the site to make it more attractive.

I think its a great idea, as the knowledge base and personal ownership/experience, here, is vast. Kinda like boiling down the whole forum into a pure Elixir. Good luck with this. I am looking forward to updates.

Tried to register - Got: The recaptcha wasn't answered correctly. (even though it was) - Tried multiple times...

Also be sure that 4-character TLDs are acceptable in email addresses...

Ok. I have disabled the reCaptcha until I figure out what is wrong with it.

Yeah it takes a few hours to learn the syntax. I have already set up some of the topics and pages that you can see.

Click on Sportster History link and to will then see the years I have already created and linked.

To make a page for a new year of Sportster simply go up to the address bar, remove start and enter what you want to add. If the page already exists then you will be will then see it. If not it will give you the option to CREATE THE PAGE on the top tabs.

Once the page is created then you, or I, or someone else needs to edit the sportster_history:start page and create a link to it.

It is confusing at first but after a few times of doing it, it becomes simple.

You can also see all the pages that I have already made from the SITE INDEX link on in the Toolbox.

The search function in this wiki has two funtions.....GO and SEARCH.

For example. If you type in 1200 you will see a popup that shows you pages with 1200 in the title. You can click on it and go to that page.

If you click search it will show you all the pages with the phrase 1200 in them.

Check out the 2016 Sportster Page under Sportster History. This is what I envision for all years.
