Help talk:Introduction to navigating Wikipedia/1

Latest comment: 2 years ago by Pbsouthwood in topic Title not known


Currently this page is the first on the Help:Intro to page and {{intro to box}}, maybe it should be at the end though. However it probably still needs some work.

  • Maybe clearer /1 intro to the fact that non-mainspace pages exist at all!
  • Some of the examples on pg /2 could be better
  • /3 needs to be a bit shorter and simpler.

"Encyclopedia" spelling

@Jonesey95: This page currently uses both spellings. Do we have a preference for one or the other? {{u|Sdkb}}talk 21:06, 6 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Update: I got rid of the second reference. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 21:15, 6 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I go with the spelling used under the logo at the upper left. – Jonesey95 (talk) 00:51, 7 May 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Title not known

Some guidance on how to find topics when one does not know the title and only has a vague idea of what it is about would be useful. · · · Peter Southwood (talk): 06:34, 9 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Pbsouthwood, are you referring more to articles or project pages? {{u|Sdkb}}talk 19:32, 9 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sdkb Basically articles, but if there is advice for other namespaces, that could also be useful. Navboxes can be useful when well designed, and of course where they actually exist, and can indicate what other editors consider connected. See also too, but less so . There is so much in WP that I still only find by accident, and not when I need it, that I later struggle to find when I need it because I only have a vague memory of what it was about.
