Q. How do I edit a page?

: It's quite easy. Simply click the "Edit this page" tab located at the top of the page or the other edit link across from headings on the right hand side of the page, and type away. For a brief introduction, see There was an error working with the wiki: Code[6]" to learn about making links, using bold and italics, linking to images, and many other things...

Q. How do I make links?

: A There was an error working with the wiki: Code[7] is just the name of the page surrounded by double square brackets. It's also possible to make the link display text that is different from that of the link itself:

: There was an error working with the wiki: Code[10]

: There was an error working with the wiki: Code[11]s -- suffix text will display as part of the link

: There was an error working with the wiki: Code[8] -- the piped link: hide the page name and display something else (but use this sparingly, and never "click here"!)

: There was an error working with the wiki: Code[12] -- the "pipe trick": the part in parentheses will not be displayed.

You don't need to put underscores ("_"), to act as space separators like you see in links. Spaces will work fine.

Q. How do I rename a page?

Registered users with a little bit of editing history under their belt can move a page this moves the page content and edit history to a new title, and creates a redirecting page at the old title. This method is better than just copying and pasting the content by hand, as it preserves the article's history, as required by our license. Use the "Move" link. Once you have moved a page, please click the "What links here" and fix the links to the old page (which will be labelled as a redirect in the "What links here" list).

Images and other media files cannot be renamed. You may save a copy of the file to your computer, rename it there, and then upload it with the new name. Fix any links to the old file to point to the new one, then note the old file at "There was an error working with the wiki: Code[13]" with a link to the image's description page (filling in the new image name).
