Wikipedia Editing: Home

Activating the Visual Editor

The visual editor allows you to edit Wikipedia without using its special mark-up language, instead giving controls that are similiar to a word processor or WYSIWYG editor.

User Page & Sandbox

The user page is a Wikipedia page you can create to make a short bio. Your sandbox is where you can practice edits or build pages before they're ready to be put into live Wikipedia.
