Welcome to the GTA Myths Wiki help page on editing, the most common activity on any Wikia site.

Before editing

First, register an account if you haven't already. It's mandatory to edit on this wiki, and will help you tremendously should you decide to contribute on other Wikia sites.

We also advise that you access your Special:Preferences page and chose either the "Source" editor or the "Classic rich-text" editor. This is because of the large quantity of special templates used on the site, which either become broken or aren't changeable when using the default Wikia Visual editor.

Editing

To begin editing, simply press the large green "Edit" button visible at the top of all pages. You can also press the small [edit] button located to the right of all headers to edit only that section of the article, which can come in useful on articles with vast amounts of content. When editing on PC, pressing the "E" key serves as a quick way to begin editing.

Things you will be editing

Here are specialized Help pages describing the various things that are used when you are editing an article:

Fandom's help guide

Here you can see the default help guide created by Fandom and included by default on all Wikia sites, which also contains numerous links to Community Central; where you can learn more complicated wikitext.

Wikis based on the new Unified Community Platform (UCP) may look or behave differently to what is described below.
See this page for more information on the new platform.
VisualEditor

The VisualEditor

Wikia editor2

The classic editor

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

Depending on whether you are logged in or not, you may receive a different editing experience:

Help:VisualEditor
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.
Help:Classic editor
Other users will see the classic editor, including the older visual editing experience and basic source wikitext editing.

Quick tips

  • 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 E on your keyboard, and the page will automatically load the preferred editor.
  • Editing is not yet possible through the Fandom app.

Choosing an editor

Logged in users can choose their default editor from a dropdown list in their user preferences (found here).

Setting Meaning
VisualEditor Shows the VisualEditor on all communities.
Classic rich-text editor
(where available)
Shows the classic rich-text editor where available.
If not, the source editor is shown.
Source editor Shows the basic source editor on all communities.

Anonymous users will almost always see the VisualEditor by default. In a few specific cases, the VisualEditor may not be available on a particular community.

Additionally, the alternative editors can still be found under the Edit button dropdown - for example, you can still access the classic editor from the dropdown even if the VisualEditor is the default.
