    StepHere are 5 easy steps to edit a page... plus a helpful guide the the wikispace toolbar!
    Editing a page means that you are changing the contents of that page. If, instead, you think that what you want to contribute is a totally different subject from the page you are on, consult our tutorial on creating a new page. For example, if you are on another teacher's page and you think "wow, this is really great; I want to talk about what my students are doing too!" then creating a new page would be most appropriate. You don't want to put all your students' activities on Jane Doe's page! However, if you are looking at your page and you see a typo, then editing it is most appropriate, of course. If you want to add information to your page--perhaps your students just finished a really exciting project and you want to share the information with everyone here--you would also want to edit your page and simply append the new information. You don't want all your students' works to be scattered all over a hundred different pages.
    If you are sure you want to edit a page and not add one, then please continue on with the tutorial!

    Note: you may notice that the background for this image, and later ones, is not the same as before; this is taken from an earlier example. The textbox is the same, though, so don't worry.

    This wiki is a small one, designed so that you can learn the basics of how to use a wiki and take advantage of its features. If you have a question not answered here, you can try looking at the general help page (for general wiki users, not just those involved in BirdSleuth).
    Tutorials
    Note: some of the tutorials were made for general use and some of them feature wikis that may not be the your own. The steps are all the same, but you may notice slight visual differences. The menus displayed in some tutorials may not be where your menu is displayed. For example, in a tutorial, you may see the menu on the left side, but your menu is actually on the right. Do not be alarmed, and simply follow the directions using your own menu.
