We use MediaWiki. For additional help with editing see


FontAwesome is an open source Icon pack, we use the provided BootstrapCDN copy so we're not dragging down our shared hosting.

FontAwesome 4.4 is licensed under SIL OFL 1.1 (Open Font License).

For a full list of icons available for your usage on our wiki click here.

We integrated FontAwesome in our wiki via LocalSettings.php (non-extension).

Example: <i class="fa fa-smile-o"></i>



The EmbedVideo Extension is a MediaWiki extension which adds a parser function called #ev for embedding video clips from over 24 popular video sharing services in multiple languages and countries. For Advanced usage click here.

Videos can be embedded in pages via a simple code shown below.

Example: {{#ev:youtube|c3NNoMc1GR8}}
