Default Wiki - Needs Site Usage/Features entries

I was all hell bent on adding some entries into the wiki about how to use the forums etc, but there isnt a good place to lay them down.

Specifically the following:
How to native search using the advanced search and wildcards
How to use google search

How to get an avatar
How the galleries work
How to post an image
How to post an attachment

The features in this post:
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showpost...40&postcount=1


Etc.


I think it deserves it's own left nav entry... Thoughts?

If it would help, olllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllo, I can make that thread sticky. Fill in more stuff underneath it on the other topics (like getting an avatar, etc.), then I'll clean it up and sticki-fy it. Maybe put it in both the "general" and "beginners" forums. Not the same as including it on the wiki, but I can't really help you on that front

I can take care of the left nav entry if it's desired. A category for forums support might be the best option to go along with that. Makes it easy to include new pages (just like malt pages or hops).

I think that'd be the best solution.

I created the category and added some of the basic pages but I didn't have time to do any content (just the article stub on them right now). You can add new pages and include [[Category:Forum Support]] at the top to include it automatically on the Forum Support page. I put it on the navigation as well.

They could stand a little more detail. They're a good starting point.
I'll see what I can crank out over the next week
