On the User-Contributed Personal Books Wiki-page, it speaks of "Personal Books created and shared by users". It's evidently from the list that many people are doing this but where is there a post or an explanatory page showing the steps to do this. It appears the books are uploaded to be shared. How is this done?

1. Post a new thread in this Files form with an explanation of the book, and attach the Word document using the paperclip icon. Optionally also attach a cover image people can use.

2. If you haven't edited the wiki before, you'll first need wiki editing privileges, which you can get by joining the Logos Wiki Editors. I can't remember if you get the privileges automatically right away or if you have to wait for an admin to grant you permissions.

3. Edit the wiki page to add a line linking to the forum post that contains the files. Once in Edit mode, I usually copy an existing line so that I get the formatting right, and just change the salient bits. Note that there are different formats depending on whether the work has a named author or not. Just follow the style of what you see already there. Optional courtesy: add the "new" icon at the end of the line -- just copy it from another line that has it.

4. Save your changes and check to be sure the formatting looks OK and the link works; fix it if not.
