Editing on Wikia is generally as simple as clicking the 'Edit' button on a page. Doing so will take to you an edit page where you can start to make changes to the page - such adding new information and media, correcting errors, or updating the formatting.
Depending on whether you are logged in, you may receive a different editing experience:
- Most anonymous and newer users will see the VisualEditor, a completely new editing experience based around showing you an accurate visual representation of your changes.
- Help:Classic editor
- Other users will see the classic editor - this includes the older visual editing experience and basic source wikitext editing.
Once 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. Click the arrow down, and click Classic editor and you may edit.
Choosing an editor
|Wikia's new VisualEditor||Shows the new VisualEditor on all wikias|
|Wikia's classic rich-text editor||Shows the classic rich-text editor where already enabled. If not, the source editor is shown.|
|Source editor||Shows the basic source editor on all wikias|
Anonymous users will generally always see the VisualEditor by default. In a few specific cases, the VisualEditor may not be available on a particular wikia.
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.
