How do I find the WikiTree wiki?

How do I find the wiki? I've only found it by accident when a post includes a link to a specific topic in the wiki. When I open the drop down menus in My Wiki Tree, Parish-940, Add, Find, Help in the upper right of the page, "wiki" does not appear in any of them. If I enter "www.wikitree.com/wiki" in my search bar, the Home WikiTree page comes up, not the wiki.

What am I missing?

You don't need to keep searching. You won't find a "WikiTree wiki". WikiTree uses a custom implementation of wiki markup coding.

Instead, every profile here includes a text section that is formatted (and editable) as a wiki -- and you might notice that the string "wiki" appears in the URL. For example, the URL for your profile is http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Parish-940

Jim, are you referring to a WIKI page that explains how WikiTree works?

I was looking for a compilation where articles on topics of general interest could be found. I don't have an example at hand, but I've found links in posts that lead to an article that I could never have found on my own.
Are they perhaps Free Space pages?
