Comments:

  • In most cases, the "how to" instructions provided in the original links use the shortcut help in "wikitext editor".
  • Because of system upgrades, the descriptive text and example images have been changed and needs to be updated.
  • Question: Do most of our contributors use wikitext or visual editor?


Recommendations:

  • We can either update the existing pages or point contributor to lessons in Wiki University-Wikitext or Wiki University-Visual Editor.
