How to Edit a PageEdit

Tour the Wikia Editor

  1. Editing a page on Wikia is super easy! First, find the page you want to edit using either the top navigation or using the search box.
  2. Second, click the Edit button, which is located to the right of the page title.
  3. A WYSIWYG interface will pop up. You can make edits, change formatting, etc. It should remind you a lot of Microsoft Word, but with fewer features. To add images, a slideshow, a video, etc., you can use the buttons on the right hand side under Add Features and Media.
  4. When you’re done making your edits, type out a quick summary of your edit in the box at the top right. For example, if you updated the stats on a recently changed weapon, type “updated weapon stats on Item Y for Expansion X.”
  5. Now hit the Preview button. Make sure to read everything carefully and check for spelling/grammatical errors.
  6. After you’ve checked for errors, click Cancel if you want to make additional changes. Otherwise, click Publish.
  7. That’s it!

How to create a new page on Wikia

  1. If you have admin access, go down to the bottom of the page and click Admin.
  2. If you don’t have admin rights, append the new page name you’d like to create after /wiki/ in the URL. i.e. www.dragons-prophet.wikia/page. Now hit enter.
  3. The new page will display and you can click Create or Add to this Page to start adding content to it.
  4. Next you will need to pick the template you wish to use. Click Add a Page when you’re done.
  5. Now add all your contents!
  6. When you’ve finished adding content, make sure to add a category (located on the right hand side). Examples of categories include Gear, Grenades, Armor, Quests, etc.
  7. You do not have to add a summary of your edit when you create a page because it will automatically be generated for you.
  8. When you’re done, click Preview. Look out for spelling and grammatical mistakes.
  9. After you’ve done that, click Publish!

  5. Click the Add Photo button when you’ve finished making your adjustments.
  6. If you need to remove an image, hover over the image or image placeholder. Then click Remove. (This can only be done in Editing mode.)
