Editing Tutorial

This Wiki website contains collaboratively edited documentation to which you can contribute. This tutorial will help you become a Wiki editor.

The following pages will discuss features of this website, giving style and content guidance, and important Wiki policies and conventions.

This is a basic tutorial, not an extensive manual. If you want more details, there are links to other pages for more information. To read them as you go along, you can open them in a separate window or a tab.

Basic Formatting

When you need to use some type of formatting e.g. new headings or bold text, you do this using wiki syntax. See Help:Formatting for some of the common types of formatting used.

Basic Images

See Help:Images for details of inserting images. The page explains the image syntax when editing the wiki.

Basic Tables

Tables may be authored in wiki pages using either HTML table elements directly, or using wikicode formatting to define the table. HTML table elements and their use are well described on various web pages and will not be discussed here. The benefit of wikicode is that the table is constructed of character symbols which tend to make it easier to perceive the table structure in the article editing view compared to HTML table elements. See Help:Tables for details of using the wikicode.

Basic Links

There are four sorts of links in this Wiki, which are all discussed on the Help:Links page.

Twilight Custom Templates

Each customized template used on this Wiki site includes instruction on its proper use and inclusion in editing and creating new pages.
