Use the slideshow navigation buttons on the bottom right of the page
A Wiki is like a web site, except that you can edit the content in your browser
|r6 < r5 < r4 < r3 < r2|
Foswiki is very configurable, and the look can change. However the essentials will all be there on the page (somewhere!)
The menu, normally located either on the right or the left side of the content, or sometimes at the top, usually includes a toolbox and a web section.
The Toolbox section usually contains these items
Often the site administrator simplifies the toolbox, so you may not have all these items in your menu bar.
The Webs section lists all the webs that you can access
A web is a collection of pages that are related closely together
The Main web contains all the user home pages. The System web contains documentation for Foswiki and all extensions. The Sandbox web is a playground area.
Your wiki may contain any number of webs, and webs can contain other webs.
Besides the Tools and Webs sections it is common to add your own links to important places.
These menu entries can be different from web to web.
Near the footer of the page you usually find an action bar which looks similar to this
|Edit | Attach | Print version | History: r2 < r1 | Backlinks | View wiki text | Edit wiki text | More topic actions|

Foswiki has been worked on for over fifteen years, and there's a lot of it. It can be daunting at first, so don't try to learn the whole thing in one go. The best way to start is to use it, and when you need to do something new, browse this web or look for examples online.If you get stuck, you can refer to the http://foswiki.org/Support web, which has a wealth of online resources, or join the friendly Foswiki IRC channel at irc://irc.freenode.net/foswiki
