If you're new to wikis, here are a few easy steps to help you learn wiki basics:

  • To edit a page:
  1. Click the "edit" link at the top, right of the page.
  2. On the page, type in your new content or edit/improve the existing content.
  3. Click the "save page" button at the bottom of the page and you are done! (Note: some people prefer to click the "show preview" button before saving -- the option is yours.
  • To enhance the look of a page you can use basic wiki code (also called markup code), or click any of the link buttons at the top of edit page navigation bar that look like this:


Wikis are awesome

One of the core reasons working on a wiki website is great is that nearly every page can be improved by anyone. Click "edit," write your stuff, click "save," and you are done! There is no needing someone else to authorize or moderate you. It is so easy that we don't worry too much about mistakes or bad edits because any page easily can be reverted right back to how it was before you made changes to it. Go ahead...have fun contributing to PortlandWiki!
