A WikiWord is a word composed of a bunch of other words slammed together with each of their first letters capitalised. WikiWord notation in a WikiWikiWeb is used to name individual pages. Furthermore, referring to a page automatically creates a link to it. Clicking on a link jumps to that page or, if it doesn't exist, to an editor to create it. TiddlyWiki uses WikiWord titles for smaller chunks of MicroContent.

Hopefully, reading a TiddlyWiki is fairly self explanatory. Within the main story column, click on bold links to read a linked tiddler. Click on italic links to create a new tiddler. When you hover the mouse over a tiddler it's highlighted and some extra options appear by the title: 'close' just closes the tiddler in question, 'link' does the opposite by closing all other tiddlers. Finally, 'edit' allows you to edit the text of any tiddler; changes are not reflected back to the server, though. See SavingStuff for more details.
TiddlyWiki uses several special tiddlers to hold the text used for the MainMenu, the SiteTitle and the SiteSubtitle. Go ahead and edit them and see the results.

A TiddlyWiki is like a blog because it's divided up into neat little chunks, but it encourages you to read it by hyperlinking rather than sequentially: if you like, a non-linear blog analogue that binds the individual microcontent items into a cohesive whole. I think that TiddlyWiki represents a novel medium for writing, and will promote it's own distinctive WritingStyle. This is the first version of TiddlyWiki and so, as discussed in TiddlyWikiDev, it's bound to be FullOfBugs, have many MissingFeatures and fail to meet all of the DesignGoals. And of course there's NoWarranty, and it might be judged a StupidName.

This is the FirstVersion of TiddlyWiki. It has been superseded by the ThirdVersion at http://www.tiddlywiki.com
The FirstVersion of TiddlyWiki is distinguished by what it lacks: saving, searching and formatting, all of which are included in the ThirdVersion.
This FirstVersion of TiddlyWiki doesn't handle saving at all elegantly. Click the 'Save all' link at the top right for more details.
