Edit Toolbar

From GEP Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

On most browsers, an edit toolbar is automatically displayed when you edit a page. This toolbar can help you add formatting to your wiki pages even if you are unfamiliar with the wiki text syntax.

Using the Toolbar

You can use most buttons on the toolbar for either a new text or existing text. Buttons that can only apply to new text include the Restrict Page, Signature, and the Horizontal Line buttons.

Change Format of Existing Text

  1. Select the text you wish to change
  2. Click on the desired button on the Edit toolbar
  3. The selected text should now be in the proper wikitext format

If you click on an Edit button without selecting any text, the editor may insert sample text into the wiki markup.
