=== Start editing ===
+
:To start editing a [[w:MediaWiki|MediaWiki]] page, click the '''Edit this page''' (or just '''edit''') link at one of its edges. This brings you to the edit page: a page with a text box containing the ''[[w:wikitext|wikitext]]'' - the editable code from which the server produces the finished page. ''If you just want to experiment, please do so in the [[{{ns:4}}:Sandbox|sandbox]], not here''.
+
 
+
===Type your changes===
+
:You can just type your text. However, also using basic wiki markup (described in the next section) to make links and do simple formatting adds to the value of your contribution. [[w:Wikimedia|Wikimedia]] wikis have style guidelines available. If you follow these, your contributions will be more valuable as they won't need to be cleaned up later.
+
 
+
===Summarize your changes===
+
:Write a short [[Help:Edit summary|edit summary]] in the small field below the edit-box. You may use shorthand to describe your changes, as described in the [[w:Wikipedia:Edit summary legend|edit summary legend]].
+
 
+
===Preview before saving!===
+
:When you have finished, click '''[[Help:Show preview|Show preview]]''' to see how your changes will look '''before''' you make them permanent.  Repeat the edit/preview process until you are satisfied, then click '''Save page''' and your changes will be immediately applied to the article. Sometimes it is helpful to save in between.

3 apostrophes will embolden '''the text'''.

5 apostrophes will embolden and italicize

''Headings'' organize your writing into sections.

The Wiki software can automatically generate

a [[Help:table of contents|table of contents]] from them.

<div style="font-size:132%;font-weight:bold;">Subsection</div>

Using more equals signs creates a subsection.

Don't skip levels, like from two to four equals signs.

Start with 2 equals signs not 1 because 1 creates H1 tags which should be reserved for page title.
