The basic unit of any Wiki is the page. To make changes in a page choose "edit" from the top of the page and make the desired changes. Then choose "Show preview" from the bottom of the page.You will see two boxes. The top box will show what the page will look like with your changes and the bottom box has the source where you can make additional changes if necessary. When your changes are o.k. choose "Save page" and you will have changed the page. The page before your changes will be kept as part of the history available by choosing "history" at the top of the page. The "discussion" at the top of a page is for questions or comments on about the page. If you find a chance article and don't want to write about it you can mention this in the "discussion" for the Main Page and perhaps someone else will write about it.

To add a new item to Current Chance News choose a name for your item. This can be the name used by the news media or a name chosen by you. Then choose "Current Chance News" from the Main Page. Using "edit" add the name of your article to the list of the previous names using the same format as the previous names. Then check it with "Show Previous" and when it is o.k. choose "Save Page".

Now click on the name of your article and a blank page will come up. Using edit, add your comments to the page. Use "Show preview" at the bottom of the page to check your article and when it is o.k. choose "Save page"

For further help in editing a page, including how to add pictures, links, special characters, etc., choose "Help" from the side box or click here.
