Help:Editing toolbar

From No Subject - Encyclopedia of Psychoanalysis
Jump to: navigation, search

In compatible browsers, an edit toolbar can be automatically displayed with the edit box, provided that this has been set in the preferences. This functions partly as a typing aid and partly as a reminder of the available functions. All the functions are available simply by typing the code directly into the edit box (such as [[link]]) - this may be easier.

The toolbar works with Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Opera.

For example:
Example of edit toolbar
To turn a piece of text into an internal link, select it and press the third button.

In Mozilla browsers and IE, you can format existing text by highlighting the text you want to format and clicking the relevant button on the toolbar. If you click a button without selecting any text, sample text will be inserted at the cursor's position (like so: Bold text). In other browsers, clicking on the button presents an explanation for that feature.

This page is a copy of the master help page at Meta (for general help information), with Wikipedia-specific templates inserted. To update the general help, edit the master help page for all projects at m:Help:Editing toolbar. For Wikipedia-specific help, there are two templates - the main template, Template:Ph:Editing toolbar, is the extra text at the bottom of this page, before the links to other help pages. Template:Phh:Editing toolbar appears at the top of this help page and is useful for Wikipedia-specific lead text. You are welcome to copy the exact wikitext from the master page at Meta and paste it into this page at any time.
