Editing Pages is a very simple process - all you have to do is click the "edit" tab from the page which you wish to edit, change the body of the text and click "Save Page". Note: If you want contribute to the discussion, rather than the main body of a page, you must first click on the discussion tab of the relevant page, then click on the edit tab.
If you highlight a given portion of text, you can make it bold by clicking the first button, or italic by clicking the second button.
The third button is for creating a link from the Planipage you are editing to another Planipage. Highlight the name of the page and click this third button. If the page name doesn't yet exist, you will notice that the link appears in red upon saving or previewing. If you click this link, you will be able to create the content for this new page name.
The fourth button works in a similar fashion, allowing you to link to an external web page, one that is outside of Planipedia. Type the website address or url, highlight and click this fourth button. Be sure you include "http://" at the beginning or your external link.
The fifth button, "Level 2 Headline" is for creating headings in your Planipage. Highlight the heading name and use this feature. Note: after your create four or more headings, Planipedia will automatically create a Table of Contents for your page.
The sixth button, "Embedded file" allows you to insert a file on to your page. For this to work, you will have to have uploaded a file on to Planipedia already. When you click this edit button,enter the exact file name in the space provided.
The singature button will allow you to include your username and time stamp automatically within the page. While this is not always necessary, it is more common for discussion pages, in order to keep track of who has said what.

More advanced formatting
Some other things you might find useful are:
- Using bullets for a list. Type * to make a series of points as in this list
- Numbering lists. Type # to number items automatically
- Showing different text for an internal link than the page name. After your page name in [[page name]] type |text to show up here, which would look like [[page name|text to show up here]] in the edit screen. Upon saving or previewing, you will see text to show up here instead of page name.
- You can do something similar for external links. Just type a space " " after the web address and then the text to be shown: [http://www.google.ca Google] shows as Google.
- Include your page in a category. Type [[Category:Name]] at the place you would like the category list to appear.
Saving Your Edits
There is a Summary field provided at the bottom of the edit box where you can quickly enter a description for the major editing changes you made. For example, "fixed typo" or "added section on Capital Gains on Real Estate".
If you have just done a small change, like fixing a typo, or perhaps fixing a broken link, we recommend you check the "This is a minor edit" checkbox. This allows you and other Planipedia moderators to more easily review changes that have been made to pages, without filtering through such small changes.
The "Watch this Page" checkbox will add this edited page to your Watchlist.
The remaining save buttons, "Save Page", "Show Preview" and "Show Changes" are all reasonably self-explanatory. Planipedia does recommend you use the preview button before saving the page, to ensure the various formats, images and other content appear as you intended.
