VISUAL EDITOR

  • 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.

TEXT STYLING:

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.)

LINKS:

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

  1. Check out the Wikipedia using an outside browser.
  2. W3Schools contain very useful information.
