Making your First Edit on an Article Page

MakingYourFirstContribution.png

Every article and content page on Fandom wikis have an Edit button located on the top right portion of the page. Once you are in an editor, you can use the available tools to quickly add and remove information, change the formatting, add new images and videos, update the page's layout, and much more! Once you're done making your changes, just click the "Save page" button to update the page.

After you make an edit to a page, it will automatically be added to a list of your Followed Pages. You will be notified of any additional updates to followed pages by email unless changed in your settings.

Don't be afraid if you "break" anything. All edits to a page are stored in the Page History, and if something does go wrong you can simply revert to an older version.

Article pages consist of several major areas, including the title of the page, longer articles can be organized in various subsections which are listed as a Table of Contents after the opening paragraph. Many communities also utilize Infoboxes, which are sections that incorporate listed information and images. At the bottom of every page, you can see the Category list of that the article page.


Wikitext

Wikitext is the main markup language used to format content on Fandom. It can be used to add photos, tables, bold styles, links, and many other visual changes.

It's not necessary to know wikitext in order to edit a page: as a part of the Unfied Community Builder, there is a simplified text editor. But if you're looking to have more elaborate designs or organizational elements to your pages, it's best to utilize WikiText.

Wikitext can be used via 'source mode' in either editor. Here are some helpful wikitext code snippets.

Uploading Images

Files like images and sound clips are an integral part of wikis. They allow readers to get a sense of the information in pages with visual guides. To do this, you must first upload files to the wiki where you want to use them. You must be logged in to do this:

  • Click "Edit" on the article you are adding the file to.
  • Click on the image upload button on the top page toolbar (highlighted here)
ImageUpload.png
  • Select Upload on the top tab. You can also browse image files already uploaded to the wiki.
  • Select the file and agree to Fandom's image upload Terms of Use
  • Add an image name and description and then hit Insert
  • Save your edit and you now have a picture on the page!

Templates

A template is a special type of page that is made so its content can be included in other pages. Since a given template can be included in many pages, it can help reduce duplication and promote a uniform style between pages.

Templates are useful for:

  • Creating content that should appear on many pages.
  • Formatting content or data (such as infoboxes) in a way that should be consistent across many pages.
  • Creating a shortcut to a frequently-visited page or for writing things that you repeat often when communicating with others.
  • Replacing long, complicated code so that a page is easier for other users to edit.
  • Protecting parts of a page from editing while leaving other sections open for edits.
  • Templates can be recognized in source code by their call usage {{TEMPLATENAME}}

Templates are located in the Template namespace. This includes any page with a name beginning with Template:, such as Template:Name. A list of used templates can be seen in Special:Templates and can be filtered by template types.

Template pages are created and modified using the source edit mode, but can be inserted into pages using any editor interface.

Infoboxes

Infoboxes are like fact sheets or sidebars in magazine articles; designed to present a summary of the topic of the page. They present important points in an organized and quickly readable format. Infoboxes are generally made using Templates, to create consistency across a community.

Fandom has developed a consistent way to code infoboxes, called Portable Infoboxes, to enable them to display well across different devices, which this page details. There are no changes to how you use an infobox on an article — instead, the changes affect how it is written on a template page. Fandom considers use of Portable Infoboxes to be standard for their communities, and safe and stable for common practical use.

A tool to help with the migration of existing infoboxes has also been created. More information about this can be found on Help:Infobox migration, and a full step-by-step walkthrough can be found at Help:Infobox migration/Walkthrough.
