The VisualEditor

Editing on Fandom is as simple as clicking the "Edit" button on a page. Doing so will take you to an edit page. This is where you can make changes to the page and add new information and media, correct errors, or update the formatting.

Most anonymous and newer users will see the VisualEditor. It's an editing experience based around showing you an accurate visual representation of your changes.
Other users will see a source editor, which supports basic source wikitext editing. There are two types of source editors:
  • 2017 wikitext editor (VisualEditor - source mode)
  • 2010 wikitext editor (Source editor).

Quick tips

The Edit button

  • Once you are in an editor, you can use the available tools to quickly add and remove information, change the formatting, add new images and videos, update the page's layout, and much more! Once you're done making your changes, just click the "Save page" button to update the page.
  • Don't be afraid if you "break" anything. All edits to a page are stored in the page history, and if something does go wrong you can simply revert to an older version.
  • If you want to edit a page without clicking the "Edit" button, you can press Ready, Steady, Action.

Choosing an editor
