    I can never resist to contributing to a good wiki - count me in :-)
    I think I was a bit naive when I installed the wiki originally, so armed with better knowledge and experience I hope we can make a better go of the Mark 2 FTU wiki

    The existing one (which I have now successfully locked down) is 95%+ full of dead end pages full of rubbish - several thousands pages I suspect. That is too much to delete so the plan is to install the latest version of the wiki and manually re-publish the good pages from the old wiki (running the old and new wikis side by side).

    I will begin work on this today and post updates here

    The new wiki is installed and I have just about transferred all the useful pages from the old one. I'll be doing some further tidying up and setting up moderator accounts and then we'll go live
