I'm really confused about what to do before flashing this ROM: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2694471

I'm coming from CM11, I don't know what to do when it says "so basically just FULLY wipe". Does this mean to just factory reset, or can somebody tell me which boxes to tick in TWRP (System, Cache, Dalvik Cache, etc.) I'm worried that factory resetting will delete internal storage, because I have accidentally deleted internal storage before while flashing a new ROM, and it was a nightmare.

Thanks in advance!

In your recovery, a full wipe would be wipe all of: /system; /cache/; dalvik cache and /cache.

Frankly, the latter is a joke -- there's nothing interesting in /cache other than logs, but folks still do it.

what will happen is the /system and /cache partitions will get reformatted. Dalvik Cache will get 'deleted' and the /data partition will get cleaned out (files removed) *other than* your Internal sdcard data.

BTW, if you have a handle as kangkong, you really ought to live up to the suggestions in the name

Thanks for the help, though I am a bit confused about what you mean about my name.
