When creating an entry on the wiki pages, How do I get to give the correct space between the
user and the UIDl, ie., Sikeston PD dispatch 1 5001.

I am have a heard time to that and did not seeing in an entry in the help.
Also how I delete a page if I need from the wiki.

Members can't delete a page - the proper procedure to follow is to make the page an orphan - no links to anything, and no categories. Wipe the page clean of all data. Send a note to Bob W9BU and he will drop the page in due course

This is to prevent the occasional spammer from doing damage to the wiki structure. Yes, deletes can be undone, but why give them the option? Most people wouldn't do it...

Now as to spacing - are you talking about setting up a table? Or something else? If you want to work with tables, the 'official documentation' can be found here...

I would like to add some space between the user name and the user Unit ID.

Hey thanks for the info.

Some XHTML commands work in the wiki too - I suspect cellpadding and cellspacing would help you here, but I'm not certain it would work. Worth a shot......Mike

Until you get comfortable with Wiki-tables, one way you can manually add space between columns is to use the HTML tag < pre > < /pre > (remove the spaces). This will create a fixed-width format style which will let you manually space items on each row until the columns align as desired.

Example (using bogus information):
Code:
<pre>
Description       Talkgroup
-----------       ---------
Unit 1 officer    11111
Unit 1 crew       11112
Unit 2 officer    11121
Unit 2 crew       11122

Tactical 2        22222
Tactical 3        33333
</pre>
Hope this helps,
