How to Add Text

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

To do so:

1. Register (if you haven't yet, it takes under a minute) by going to:

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. Scroll down to the place you want to add text to by using the blue, vertical slider. You may see some coding there (typically for bolding or to mark the end of line) that can give you an idea of how to format the text you are adding. 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."

In addition to participating by adding text, people also can use the ALE Wiki to personally connect to others in the field. Consider adding a brief bio to the WhosHere page or check out who is already participating in the ALE Wiki.
