How to Add Text

In this topic area -- as in all the ALE Wiki topic areas -- you are invited to add your own thoughts. To do so:

1. Register (if you haven't yet, it takes under a minute) by going to: http://wiki.literacytent.org/index.php?title=Special:Userlogin&returnto=Main_Page

2. Select the "edit" tab at the top of the page where you want to add to or change text. This will bring you "under the hood" of the page you are on, where you can add or change text. If you see some code next to the text that is there, ignore it. Just type in your text at the bottom of the page. Scroll down using the blue, vertical slider. You could also put your text in where you think it is supposed to go. If you get it wrong, don't worry. You can change it, or someone else will. In other words, you can learn how to add text to the wiki -- with formatting and in the right place -- or, if you don't have the time or patience for this, just add text at the bottom of the page. The topic area leader or ALE Wiki organizer will make the adjustments for you.

3. Select the "Show preview" button at the bottom of the edit page to see the changes. If they look good, scroll to the bottom and select "Save page". You can make changes before you save the page. You can select "Show preview" and make changes as many times as you want before you "Save page". You can even make changes after you "Save page."

4. Add your name and maybe your email address after your comments so readers can contact you.

5. Consider adding a brief bio to the WhosHere page

Most important to know: there is no way you can mess things up. Even if you accidentally erase a page it can easily be restored. So, don't worry. Give it a try.
