Description

The Fixbox is a specialized container used exclusively for fixes, workarounds, and step-by-step instructions. It provides a formal base for them, as well as keeping the wiki clean.

  • The title need to summarize what the fix/workaround is trying to accomplish.
    • See above example.
  • For sequenced instructions, use # to label each step.
    • # allows numbered lists to be dynamic.
    • Ex. If new entries are placed in the middle of a list, the old entries are automatically re-numbered.
