Help:Editing

Editing a page is really easy and for most tasks, you don't even need wiki markup.

Simple editing[edit]

To edit a page, click the Edit button to the right of the page or add ?action=edit to the end of a page URL. Once the editing suite appears, make the desired additions or changes then click "Save Page".

In more detail: Wiki markup[edit]

If you want to add more than plain text, you'll need to learn markup code. Don't worry, it's really simple, easy to type and easy remember.
