Editing Pages

help

Editing pages in Wikked is super easy -- by design.

  1. Find the page you want to edit (see Navigating).
  2. Click on the "Edit" menu entry in the sidebar.
  3. Add or change something in the text editor.
  4. Click the "Save" button!

Editing in your Browser

When you edit a page, it's a good idea to follow these simple rules:

  • Add a simple description to your changes before hitting the "Save" button. This will help you sort through changes when you look at page histories.

  • Use the "Preview" button to check that you didn't make a typo, Formatting mistake, or other simple error. This will help reduce the number of "fix up" revisions that could clutter up the history.

  • Prefer editing pages while being logged in, or, if you're just running your wiki locally, make sure you configured your SCM so that any commits are set to be authored by you. This will make sure your wiki history is not full of commits with your local IP address.

Editing in a Text Editor

Wikked stores page data in text files, handled by a source control management system (SCM). This means you can also simply edit pages in your favourite text editor, and commit the changes using the SCM's standard commands. Sometimes this is easier than going through the web interface, especially when you need to make multiple changes to multiple files, like a "search and replace" type of operation.
