Creating the Content Map

Remember at all stages to name your files and documents in a way that is easy understand for other users. Therefore do not save/call you files names starting with WikiVet or Content Map rather use the name of the section you are producing the Content Map for followed by 'Content Map'. to understand why visit this page and scroll down to the images. It is evident why files need to be named correctly!

The process should be quite inntuiative within the software and the software comes with adequate instructions on how to create the content map. However please follow the guidlines below when creating links to WikiVet content as page names need to be used rather than the pages URL.
