Linking to other pages
One of the most important things on a wiki is knowing how to link to other pages. It's simple, and anyone can do it, also, if you make a mistake on a link (which all of us have) it's easy to correct it by selecting the Edit button on top of the page.
Here's some examples:
Laura Ingalls older sister is Mary Ingalls Kendall.
To make that I simply typed:
Laura Ingalls older sister is [[Mary Ingalls Kendall]].
One way to really help the wiki is to find punctuation mistakes and to try to remember the take a quick look after typing a page to make sure that the correct punctuation is used. Also, on this wiki we prefer to use -- instead of —, here's an example:
This is using the longer line:
Here's the same text, only using the shorter two lines:
When typing a list of something, such as appearances or an episode guide, please follow this guideline:
The correct, standard way of making lists:
(to make this, I simply added an asterisk symbol * before each link.)
The incorrect way:
(this was made by adding a colon mark : before each link.)
Templates are sometimes considered the most important part of a page, it gives a brief summary without having to read the entire page if you don't want to. Our most used template would probably be Template:Character, this is what goes onto all of our character pages.
Using this template is simple, you just need to know one thing; how to copy and paste. After pasting it on a simply fill in the known fields (and if you make a mistake, don't worry, because anyone can fix it.)
