Help Pages

Before you can edit Issuepedia, you need to have an account. (I had to disable anonymous posting because of spam.) You can create one here, or log in here if you already have one.

Indexes

Tools

Editing

References

  • To add footnote references within article text: <ref name="key">full footnote goes here</ref>
    • The "name" attribute is only necessary if you want to refer to the same footnote more than once.
    • The key must not be purely numeric.
  • To display the list of footnotes: <references />
  • More complete instructions are on the MediaWiki reference site.
This page is in need of updating. Need some basic wiki-editing instructions here.

Templates

didn't I already create a page or section about templates somewhere? -W.

Ways of displaying and formatting content:

  • Template:Dbrk: show double brackets around first argument, like a wikipage link (but don't actually link) - [[like this]]

Various conditions under which the complete text of an external article might be posted in Issuepedia:

News Sources

Places to find current news, especially items not generally covered by the mainstream press

Outdated

These articles should be rewritten, updated, or scrapped:

  • Article Types: some of the main types of articles, and where to find examples
  • Contributors: actual people who have contributed substantially to Issuepedia
