Rich editor (also known as a WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) editor)

To enable the rich editor

  • Click on the my preferences tab at the top right of the browser window
  • Click on the Misc tab
  • Click in the checkbox to enable the "use toggle to switch between wikitext and rich editor" function
  • Click on the save button at the bottom of the page
  • When you create or edit a page, click on the "Rich Editor" link immediately above the editing toolbar

Rich editor features

  • Familiar interface similar to most word-processing applications
  • Wikitext coding is invisible
  • Easy table creation
  • Easy link creation, including automated search for internal articles
