Editing on Nukapedia can be done by clicking the "Edit" button on a page. Doing so will lead to a page where changes can be made, whether it be adding new information and media, or making corrections to errors or formatting.

Types of editors

When you are on the edit page, on top of the edit window, you can see which editor you are using. You can also use the drop-down menu to switch to another editor. Your preferred editor can be chosen in Special:Preferences → Editing → Preferred editor. If visual editor is set as your preference, switching to source editor will take you to the 2017 VisualEditor source mode.

Most new users will see the VisualEditor. It's an editing experience based around showing you an accurate visual representation of your changes.
Other users will see a source editor, which supports basic source wikitext editing. There are two types of source editors:
  • 2017 wikitext editor (VisualEditor - source mode)
  • 2010 wikitext editor (Source editor).

Choosing an editor

Show changes, Preview and Save can be found at the bottom of the editor window.

Setting Meaning
VisualEditor Shows the VisualEditor on all communities.
VisualEditor - source mode Shows the 'source mode' editor.
This is also known as the 2017 wikitext editor.
Source editor Shows the basic source editor on all communities.
This is also known as the 2010 wikitext editor.

Additionally, the alternative editors can still be found under the Edit button dropdown - for example, one can still access the 2017 source editor from the dropdown even if the VisualEditor is the default.

Quick tips

  • Once in an editor, available tools can be used to add and remove information, change the formatting, add new images and videos, update the page's layout, and much more. Once all changes are complete, click the "⧼visualeditor-toolbar-savedialog⧽" button to update the page.
  • Don't be afraid to "break" anything. All edits to a page are stored in the page history, and if something does go wrong, it can be reverted to an older version.
