Any person can edit any page. Any person at all, in fact!

Double-click on a page to enter edit mode. In this mode you will see the page contents inside a large text box. You may add/edit/update/delete any information within this box. See Help On Formatting for the syntax.

There are three buttons at the top of the page:

  • Save: Saves the current page as a new revision.
  • Preview: Spawns a popup window showing the proposed changes as they would appear if saved.
  • Cancel: Cancels edit mode and returns you to the page you were viewing.

Below the text box you will see a checkbox with the text "Include page in Recent Changes list". If this box is checked, the edits you make will be logged as a major revision and will show up in the standard Recent Changes list. If un-checked, the edit is logged as a minor revision and does not show up on the default Recent Changes view1.

Next is a long text box with the label "Optional comment about this change". Anything you type in here will show up as a comment in the Recent Changes view entry for the edited page - it is highly recommended that you do this whenever possible as it helps to inform others of the changes you make.


Finally you see the same three buttons (Save, Preview, Cancel) that are discussed above.

   1 Minor edits will only appear if the filter querystring parameter is set to 2.
