Welcome to the Intermediate Help pageEdit

This page is mainly useful links and help for people that have edited Wikis before, but are still not sure about some of the more complex features of editing.

Intermediate help file collectionEdit

The full collection of all help files is available from these three sites:

but it is just as well to navigate through them in this order if you are new to wikis.


More Skills to LearnEdit

  • More about wikicities and other background issues in the FAQ.

How to avoid making some common mistakes . This is a somewhat terse article from wikia! But we are generally friendlier than this!!

Once you have a firm grasp of this stuff you are well on your way to the next level. I know it looks a bit daunting but most of it can be absorbed in a couple of sessions. The main thing is to keep editing and to use the reference material here to turn to as needed.
