What is this?Edit

This The Bloggers Against Censorship Wiki is a Wiki (see Wikipedia's definition), which means that anyone can easily edit any page and have those changes posted immediately to that page. You can do this by following 3 simple steps: edit, Add text and Save page.

How to add text to a pageEdit

1. Click on the EDIT tabEdit

Editing a Wiki page is very easy. You you can add information to any page using three simple steps. Simply click on the "edit" tab at the top of the page.

2. Add textEdit

  • Clicking the edit tab will bring you to a page with a text box containing the text of the page. Decide the best place to add your text, then just type the text. Don't worry about bold, italics, etc. We can make any style changes for you later.

3. PREVIEW first, then SAVEEdit

After adding to or changing the text it is useful to press Show preview before you save the page. This results in showing the webpage in your browser but does not make it publicly available yet (not until you press Save page). This also gives you a chance to make corrections before you save. If you want to see how the correction will appear, press Show preview again. If you want, you can also add a very short description of the changes you made, by using the Summary [1] field at the bottom of the page. Just remember edit, Show preview and Save page. Three easy steps and your information is on the internet!

Editing long pagesEdit

  • Long pages are divided into subsections. Each subsection has an Edit link in the right side of the page, on the same line with the subsection's title. For example, Bypassing The Ban is a long page; in order to add your technique of getting past a block, go to the bottom of the page, click on the right side Edit link, add text, then click Save.

Text is important, not formatEdit

  • The text is what's important: Don't wory about formatting the text (with headlines, italics, bold, lists, etc.). Just add the text, preview, and save.
  • How to add a link: If you want to include a link in your text, write it as text, in the following format:
http://www.your-address-here.com

The classic editor

Editing on Fandom is as simple as clicking the "Edit" button on a page. Doing so will take you to an edit page where you can make changes to the page and add new information and media, correct errors, or update the formatting.

Depending on whether you are logged in or not, you may receive a different editing experience:

Help:VisualEditor
Most anonymous and newer users will see the VisualEditor. It's an editing experience based around showing you an accurate visual representation of your changes.
Help:Classic editor
Other users will see the classic editor, including the older visual editing experience and basic source wikitext editing.

Quick tips

  • Once you are in an editor, you can use the available tools to quickly add and remove information, change the formatting, add new images and videos, update the page's layout, and much more! Once you're done making your changes, just click the "Publish" button to update the page.
  • Don't be afraid if you "break" anything. All edits to a page are stored in the page history, and if something does go wrong you can simply revert to an older version.
  • If you want to edit a page without clicking the "Edit" button, you can press E on your keyboard, and the page will automatically load the preferred editor.
  • Editing is not yet possible through the Fandom app or Community Apps.

Choosing an editor

Logged in users can choose their default editor from a dropdown list in their user preferences (found here).

Setting Meaning
VisualEditor Shows the VisualEditor on all communities.
Classic rich-text editor
(where available)
Shows the classic rich-text editor where available.
If not, the source editor is shown.
Source editor Shows the basic source editor on all communities.

Anonymous users will almost always see the VisualEditor by default. In a few specific cases, the VisualEditor may not be available on a particular community.

Additionally, the alternative editors can still be found under the Edit button dropdown - for example, you can still access the classic editor from the dropdown even if the VisualEditor is the default.
