Welcome! We are happy that you want to learn to use WissKI! These guides contain everything about the installation, configuration and usage of the Drupal-WissKI environment and common used modules and also provide basic instructions on ontology engineering and data modeling.


This documentation follows a style guide to support your understanding - where you should navigate to, which values you could enter or what buttons you could click.


Infoboxes give you some nice hints or additional information about the topic.

Warnings refer to possible sources of errors or failures.
