Making a new Wiki article

Posted by on Sep 6, 2011 in Introduction to HealersWiki | Comments Off

It’s very simple to make a Wiki article. If you’ve got some expertise to share or some knowledge to contribute, then allow us to show you how.

Step 1: Register

Register on HealersWiki using the little panel on the top right of the page. Put in your details, and follow the instructions to sign up and then log in.


Step 2: Decide the category

Find ‘Wiki’ on the grey menu bar at the top of this page, and hover the mouse over it to see the list of main categories. Which main category does your contribution belong under? Click the category you want the article to belong to. If your article needs to belong to a sub-category (for example, you want to write about Thai massage, but the ‘massage’ sub-category doesn’t exist yet), there’s an optional step 2b below.

Optional Step 2b: Create a sub-category

Once you have clicked on the main category (for example: ‘Healing Modalities’), click the little grey rectangle at the top of the page that says ‘create new’. From there, choose the title (for example: ‘Massage’). If you like, you can briefly introduce or write about the sub-category in the main text box, but don’t feel obliged to! Click the ‘save’ button underneath the text box. Then follow on to step 3 to create a Wiki article inside the new subcategory (‘SubWiki’) you just created.


Step 3: Create the article

Click the icon at the bottom of the category page or the little grey rectangle at the top of the page that says ‘create new’. From there, you can choose the title, and write your text in the main box. When you have finished writing, click ‘save’ just under the text box.


That’s it!

If you are a confident web user, you can create the article as described above, and then click the ‘advanced’ tab on the article page. That will take you to the WordPress editing page, which allows for some more editing and formatting options, such as the ability to add images, and change the sub-category of the article.
