Undo and Redo tabs:


  • Visual Editor was created to allow people who have little or no knowledge of programming to add material to a Wiki site.
  • It resembles editing in a word processing program.
  • However, Visual Editor does have its limitations
  • LIMITATIONS: For example, you can place images but you have little control as to their size and location in an article.
  • With Visual Editor you can... Add a reference or footnote.
  • With Visual Editor you can create:
A. Paragraphs of information.
B. Tables.
C. Numbered lists.

Paragraphs and Headers:

Here are the sizes of the headers as shown in the menu:

Heading - header which is 2 equal signs (==) in Wikitext coding.

Sub-heading 1 - equals (===) in Wikitext coding.

Sub-heading 2 - equals (====) in Wikitext coding.

Sub-heading 3 - equals (=====) in Wikitext coding.

Sub-heading 4 - equals (======) in Wikitext coding.

Preformatted - Removes the default font and replaces it with a font that looks like old typewriter font.

Block quote - Turns a paragraph or sentence into a block of text that is indented.

Page title - equals (=) in Wikitext coding. However, this size header is RESERVED ONLY FOR ARTICLE TITLES! DO NOT use this size of header in your articles. If you were to make a header with one equal sign, it will remove the actual title at the top of the page, leaving a blank space. In addition, the browser will think your header is now the title of the article.


You can make changes to the style or appearance of text. Highlight the text you want to alter and select from the drop down menu. 

(Notice: You can also change style by using the Control key with another key such as a "i" to change text to italics.)


Creating Internal Links:

  • I'd like to look up information from the locality page of Norway

Creating External Links: ...but no need for brackets. Cut and paste the URL
