If you would like to try VisualEditor without editing an article, here is a page where you can freely test it. You don't need an account to use VisualEditor on that page.


Lat upp VisualEditorEdit

Fyri at rætta eina síðu við at brúka VisualEditor, so skal tú klikkja á "Edit" knøttin ovast á síðuni.

Tað kann taka nøkur sekund at lata upp eina síðu til rættingar, og uppaftur longri, um síðan er sera long.

Við at klikkja á "Edit source" knøttin verður tann gamli klassiski wikitekst rættarin latin upp.

VisualEditor - Edit tab.png

Tú kanst eisini lata upp VisualEditor við at klikkja á "edit" leinkjuna í hvørjum broti.

Kom gott í gongd: VisualEditor tóllinjanEdit

Screenshot of the VisualEditor toolbar
VisualEditor tóllinjan kemur fram ovast á skerminum, tá tú fer í gongd við at rætta við VisualEditor. Hon inniheldur nakrar væl kendar ikonir:

VisualEditor - Toolbar - Undo-redo.png
Angra og ger umaftur broytignarnar ið tú hevur gjørt.

VisualEditor Toolbar Headings-en.png
Yvirskrifta rulla-niður menyin: loyvir tær at broyta slag av yvirskrift til tekstin. Standard yvirskriftin eitur "Yvirskrift". The normal format for text is "Paragraph".

VisualEditor Toolbar Formatting-en.png
Formatting: Clicking the "A" opens a menu. For any item to have an effect, you must have first selected (highlighted) some text.
  • The "Bold" item (B) bolds the selected text.
  • The "Italic" item (I) italicizes the selected text.
  • The "Superscript" item (S2) causes the selected text to appear smaller than surrounding text and to be slightly higher than the surrounding text.
  • The "Subscript" item (S2) causes the selected text to appear smaller than surrounding text and slightly lower than the surrounding text.
  • The "Strikethrough" item (S) adds a solid bar through the selected text.
  • The "Computer code" item (a set of curly brackets: {}) changes the font of the selected text to a monospaced font, which sets it apart from surrounding (proportionally spaced) text.
  • The "Underline" item (U) adds a solid line beneath the selected text.
  • The "Language" item (Aあ) allows you to label the language (for example, Japanese) and direction (for example, right-to-left) of the selected text.
  • The final item (" ⃠ "), called "Clear styling", removes all character formatting from the selected text, including links.

VisualEditor - Toolbar - Linking.png
Linking tool: The chain is the linking tool. Clicking on it (usually after selecting some text) opens the link dialog.

VisualEditor - Cite Pulldown.png
Cite menu: The "Cite" menu is used to add inline citations (also called "footnotes" or "references"). All projects have access to "Basic" reference formatting and the ability to "Re-use" citations, using this menu. This menu also gives you quick access to local citation templates, if these are enabled on your wiki.

(Instructions for adding local citation templates to the Cite menu at a specific wiki are available at VisualEditor/Citation tool.)


VisualEditor Toolbar Lists and indentation-en.png
Lists & indentation: The first two items allow you to format text as either a "Bullet list" or a "Numbered list". The last two items allow you to decrease or increase the indentation level of list items.

VisualEditor Insert Menu-en.png
More: "More" rulla-niður-teksturin á VisualEditor tóllinjuni gevur tær fleiri møgulleikar afturat til at broyta skriftina og valfríar handlingar, eitt nú at innseta keldur og at taka fyrimyndir við. Tó eru tað ikki allar av hesum funksjónunum, ið eru virknar enn.
  • The "Template" icon (a puzzle piece) allows you to edit templates.
  • The "Comment" item (a speech balloon) allows you to insert comments that are not visible to readers; these comments can be seen only when in edit mode.
  • The "Formula" icon (Σ) opens the formula inserter dialog.
  • The "References list" icon (three books) opens a dialog in which you can specify where will references be displayed to the reader. Usually this only needs to be done once on every page.
  • The "Hieroglyphs" icon (an ankh symbol - ☥) allows you to enter the hieroglyphics inserter. (See below.)
  • The "Special character" icon (Ω) allows you to insert some special characters. (See immediately below.)

VisualEditor Toolbar SpecialCharacters-en.png
Special character insertion: The "Special character" icon on the "Insert" menu, when clicked, displays a dialog showing many special characters. By clicking on a specific character, you place it into the text. These special characters include some standard symbols, accents, and mathematical symbols. (This list may be customized locally. See VisualEditor/Special characters for instructions.)

VisualEditor cancel save-en.png
The Page options menu is to the left of the Save page button. On this menu there are options to adjust page settings, such as whether the page is a redirect, or how it is indexed; to add, edit, or delete categories; and to see, using the "Language" item, the list of articles on the same subject that are in other languages. You can also switch (one-way only) from VisualEditor to the classic wikitext source editor without losing the editing work you've done.

Goym broytingarEdit

Tá tú ert liðug/ur at rætta, trýst so á tann grøna "Save page" knøttin í tóllinjuni. Tað ber ikki til at klikkja á tann grøna knøttin, um ongar broytingar vóru framdar. To cancel all your editing changes, just close your browser window.
VisualEditor cancel save-en.png

Pressing the green "Save page" button opens a dialog. You can then enter a brief summary of your actions, mark your edit as minor, and add the page to your Watchlist. The box for the summary is the equivalent of the Summary (?): field in the wikitext editor.

You can also review your changes using the "Review your changes" button to be sure they will work as intended before saving your changes. This is similar to the "Show changes" button in the wikitext editor. The "Cancel" button returns you to the page you were editing. You can save all of your changes later.

VisualEditor save dialog-en.png


Rætta slóðirEdit

VisualEditor - Toolbar - Formatting - Link.png
Leinkjur kunnu leggjast afturat við "Link" ikonini (leinkjur í einari ketu) á tóllinjuni, ella við at brúka snarvegin  Ctrl+K (ella  Command+K á einari Mac).

If you select (highlight) text or place your cursor within a word, and then press the "Link" button, a link will be inserted using that text or word. In most cases, when creating internal links (links to other pages in the same wiki) you do not select text. But when creating external links, in most cases you do select text before starting the linking process, and text is probably something you just typed.


VisualEditor - Link editing inline 2.png
Annahvørt tú nýtir knøttin ella snarvegin, so kemur ein samrøðukasssi fram, har tú kanst tasta leinkjuna. VisualEditor vil royna at hjálpa tær við innanhýsis leinkjum (slóðir til aðrar síður á Wikipediu) við at leita eftir sannlíkum passandi síðum, tá tú fert í gongd við at tasta.

VisualEditor will try to help with internal links by looking for likely matches as you begin to type.


VisualEditor - Link editing inline box.png
Once you have entered or selected the link, you complete the linking process by pressing  Enter, pressing the "Done" button, or just clicking outside of the box. Your link will immediately appear on the VisualEditor page, but it will not be saved until you save the entire page.

VisualEditor - External link.png
To link to a web page on another website, the process is the similar: you enter a URL in the box, and it will be added as an "External link".

External links without labels look like this: [1]. You can add these by placing your cursor away from any word (e.g., after a space). Open the link tool by clicking on the button or pressing the shortcut keys. Type the URL in the box, and click the "Done" button to insert the link.

VisualEditor - Link editing inline.png
Fyri at broyta ella taka burtur eina verandi leinkju, trýst so á leinkjuna í tekstinum, trýst síðan á "Link" ikonina, sum kemur fram beint við. Tú kanst eisini trýsta á somu ikon á tóllinjuni ella brúka  Ctrl+K snarvegin á knappaborðinum, meðan tú ert á leinkjuni.

In the dialog, you can then change where the link goes. You can also remove the link altogether by pressing the "Remove" button in the lower left corner of the dialog. You can also open the link's target in another window by clicking on the "Open" button. (You might want do this to check if an external link is valid.)

Rætta keldurEdit

Rætta eina verandi kelduEdit


VisualEditor - Editing references 1.png
Fyri at rætta eina keldu sum er har frammanundan, so skal tú klikkja á hana í tekstinum, og síðan klikkja á "Basic" ikonina (bókamerki) sum kemur fram beint við hana, ella á ikonina í tóllinjuni.

VisualEditor - Editing references 6.png
Við at klikkja á Keldu ikonina, so verður ein samrøðukassi latin upp, sum inniheldur ein mini-rættara, har tú kanst rætta tekstin í kelduni.

Many wikis use templates to format references. If a template is used in your reference, then all the text in the template will be highlighted when you click on the reference information.

If a template was used and you've clicked on information in that template, then the Template icon (puzzle piece) will appear. Click on that to edit the content of the template, in the template mini-editor dialog.


VisualEditor - Editing References - Cite Web.png
If, instead of the "Basic" icon (bookmark), what appears when you click on a reference is an icon for a standard template for citations, clicking on that icon will take you directly to the template mini-editor dialog.

VisualEditor - Editing references 5.png
Inside the template mini-editor, you can add or remove types of information or change current content. Only fields (template parameters) that have content are supposed to be shown initially. To add fields, click on "Add more information" at the bottom of the mini-editor.

VisualEditor - Apply changes.png
Click on "Apply changes" when you're done.

Endurnýta eina verandi kelduEdit


VisualEditor references more.png
Um síðan longu inniheldur keldur, so kanst tú velja at endurnýta eina verandi endurgeving, um tað passar til tekstin, ið tú ynskir at leggja keldu til.

Fyri at endurnýta eina verandi keldu, peika so við músini har ið tú ynskir at leggja kelduna í tekstin, og trýst so á "Basic" ikonina (bókamerki) frá More valmyndini.


VisualEditor - Editing references 18.png
In the Reference dialog, look at the list for the reference you want to reuse, and select it. If there are many references, you can use the search box (labeled "What do you want to reference?") to list only those references that include certain text.

Seta inn eina nýggja kelduEdit


VisualEditor references more.png
To add a citation using the "Cite" menu, place your cursor where you want to add it in the text. Then select the appropriate citation type in the menu.

Using the "Basic" citationEdit


VisualEditor - Editing references 20.png
Í keldu-rættaranum kanst tú leggja afturat, rætta og formatera tína endurgeving.

You can make the reference belong to a given group, although normally this is left blank. (This option is used to display groups of references with the "References list" tool.)


VisualEditor Template Insert Menu-en.png
Um tú innsetir eina nýggja keldu, og tú ynskir at innseta eina fyrimynd (skapilón) í hana, so skal tú klikkja á Innlimanar ikonina (putlispælsbrikkur) í rulla-niður "More" tóllinjuni í keldurættaranum.

VisualEditor - Editing references 9.png
Then, look for the template you want to use, add it and edit it as you would any other template. (See the Editing templates section, below, if you need more information about templates.)

Trýst á "Apply changes" fyri at venda aftur til keldu-rættaran, og "Apply changes" enn einaferð, fyri at venda aftur til síðuna.


VisualEditor Reference List Insert Menu-en.png
Um tað ikki longu er ein listi við keldum á síðuni (til dømis um tú leggur afturat ta fyrstu kelduna á síðuni), so mást tú leggja hana afturat soleiðis at teksturin á tínari keldu verður vístur.

Place the cursor where you want to display the references list (usually at the bottom of the page), open the "Insert" menu and click the "References list" icon (three books).


VisualEditor - Editing references 11.png
If you are using several groups of references, which is relatively rare, you can specify the group in this dialog. Only the references that belong to that group will be displayed here.

The final step in the References list dialog is to click "Insert".

Using standard cite templatesEdit


VisualEditor - Editing References - Cite Pulldown.png
Your local wiki may have added extra citation templates to this menu. This offers quick access to the most-used citation templates. (Instructions for adding extra citation templates to your local wiki are available at VisualEditor/Citation tool.)

VisualEditor - Editing references - Cite book required fields.png
Clicking on a template icon such as "Cite book" will take you into the template mini-editor for that template. Important information fields may be marked with an asterisk. While the most common fields will be shown, not all of them are required.

VisualEditor - Editing references - Add parameter.png
To add additional parameters, scroll down in the template mini-editor and click on the "Add more information" option.

Click on "Insert" when you're done.

Rætta myndir og aðrar miðlafílur

Editing imagesEdit

Fyri at leggja út eina nýggja mynd (ella eitt annað slag av miðlafílu) á síðuna, so skal tú klikkja á "Media" ikonina á tóllinjuni (ein mynd av fjøllum) í "More" rulla-niður menyini. Myndin verður løgd út har ið tú peikar við músini/cursaranum.
VisualEditor Media Insert Menu-en.png

Clicking the "Media" icon opens a dialog that automatically searches Wikimedia Commons and your local wiki for media files related to the title of the page you're editing.

Tú kanst leita eftir øðrum miðlafílum við at broyta tekstin í dialogkassanum.

Trýst við músini á eina minimynd (thumbnail) fyri at velja eina fílu. This places the image onto the page you are editing.

VisualEditor - Media editing 2.png

After the image you selected is inserted into the page, another dialog will open. This dialog allows you to add and edit the caption of the image. The caption can contain formatting and links.
VisualEditor - Media editing 6.png

The media dialog also allows you to add alternative text captions, to help users who use screen readers, or who have disabled image display.
Media editing 7.png

You can also set various parameters for the image in the "Advanced settings" window. These include the alignment, the type, and size of the image.
VisualEditor - Media editing 8.png

Tá tú ert liðug/ur, trýst so á "Apply changes" fyri at lata aftur samrøðuteigin og venda aftur til síðurættaran.
VisualEditor - Apply changes.png

For an existing image, you can add or edit a caption or other settings by clicking on the image, then clicking on the "Media" icon that appears below the picture.

You can resize an existing image by clicking on it, then moving the resize icon (the two-headed arrow on the bottom left).

You can also drag and drop an image to a place higher or lower on the page.

VisualEditor - Media editing 3.png


Editing media galleriesEdit


To edit an existing gallery in VisualEditor, click that gallery. Then, near the bottom of the gallery, click the gallery icon (a set of photos). This brings up the gallery editor, with the full list of images included in the gallery.
VisualEditor - Gallery2.png
The gallery editor is currently a simple box that allows you to edit existing galleries using wikitext markup. To add a new image to an existing gallery, type the file name, followed by a bar (|) and the caption for that image. You must put each image in the gallery on its own line. You can also edit this list to remove or rearrange images or to change captions.

When you click the "Done" button, you will exit the gallery editor. You should then see your changes, with the gallery as it will now appear to readers.

Remember that exiting the gallery editor does not save your changes. As with other changes made using VisualEditor, you must save the entire page in order to save your work.

VisualEditor - Gallery3.png

Rætta fyrimyndirEdit

To add a new template to the page, place your cursor where you want the template to be inserted, and click on the "Template" icon (puzzle piece) in the "Insert" menu.
VisualEditor Template Insert Menu-en.png

Type the name of the template you want to insert. When you see it on the list, click on its name. Then click "Add template".
VisualEditor - Template editing 4.png

You can also edit templates that are already on the page by selecting them (they turn blue), and clicking on the "Template" icon (puzzle piece) that appears.
VisualEditor - Template editing 1.png

Adding a new template or opening an existing one opens the "Transclusion" dialog. If the template has have been updated to contain TemplateData information, then the dialog will show a list of individual parameters; otherwise, a link to the documentation will be available in the dialog.

If you are editing an existing template, and the template has been updated, then the dialog will show the values for the parameters.

VisualEditor - Template editing 2.png

For an existing template, you edit the parameters already listed, and you can add additional parameters by clicking "Add more information", at the very bottom of the dialog.
VisualEditor - Template editing 3.png

Tá ein fyrimynd (skapilón) innlimar aðrar fyrimyndir, so síggjast hesar undir-fyrimyndir sum parametur. Hesar kunnu rættast ella takast burtur við at klikkja a navnið á undir-fyrimyndini.

Nýggjar undir-fyrimyndir verða lagdar afturat við at fylgja stigunum til at leggja afturat eitt parametur. Tú kanst vera noydd/ur til at kanna eftir dokumentasjónina hjá fyrimyndini (skapilónini), fyri at tryggja tær at undir-fyrimyndin verður stuðlað.

VisualEditor - Template editing 5.png

Tá tú ert liðug/ur, trýst so á ""Apply changes" fyri at lata aftur samrøðukassan og venda aftur til síðurættaran.
VisualEditor - Apply changes.png

Skifta út fyrimyndirEdit


Tá ein fyrimynd má skiftast út, tasta so subst: (kolon íroknað) áðrenn navnið á fyrimyndini.

Sjálvvirkandi ligugtgerð (autocompletion) virkar ikki saman við subst:; um tú hevur tørv á sjálvvirkandi ger-ligugt, legg so afturat subst: men ikki fyrr enn tú hevur funnið fram til ta fyrimynd, ið tú leitar eftir.

Trýst so á tann grøna "Add template" knøttin.

VisualEditor - Template editing 7.png

Legg afturat eitt hvørt parametur sum vanligt og "Apply changes".
VisualEditor - Template editing 6.png

Tú fert ikki at síggja fyrimyndina víðkast á síðuni gjøgnum hesa innleiðandi fasuna.
VisualEditor - Template editing 8.png


Rætta bólkarEdit

VisualEditor - Cancel and Save buttons.png
To edit categories, on the "Page options" menu, click the "Categories" button.

VisualEditor - Category editing 1.png
"Categories" knøtturin letur upp ein samrøðuteig, har verandi bólkar koma fram, og loyvir tær at leggja nýggir afturat.

You have the option of setting or changing the general (default) sorting key, which used to determine where the page appears when listed with other pages in the same category.

For example, the default sorting key for the article "George Washington" is "Washington, George", and so in the category "Presidents of the United States", the article is listed under the letter "W", not the letter "G".


VisualEditor - Category editing 3.png
To add a category for a page, type the name of the category into the field "Add a category". As you type, VisualEditor will search for possible matching, existing categories. You can either select an existing category, or you can add a category that doesn't yet have its own category page. (Until that category page is created, your new category will show as a red link after you save all your editing changes.)

VisualEditor - Category editing 2.png
To remove an existing category, click on it and click on the "Remove" icon (trash can) in the dialog that opens.

Clicking on a category also allows you to specify a sorting key for a specific category. (This is uncommon.) Such a sorting key overrides the general (default) sorting key.


VisualEditor - Apply changes.png
Trýst á "Apply changes" tá tú ert liðug/ur við at rætta bólkar fyri at koma aftur til síðurættaran.


Editing page settingsEdit

VisualEditor - Page Settings menu.png
To edit a page's settings, click to open the "Page options" menu, in the toolbar, and select the "Page settings" button.

VisualEditor Page Settings-en.png
The "Page settings" button opens a dialog that shows several options.

VisualEditor Page Settings Redirects-en.png
You can make a page a redirect to another page by checking the "Redirect this page to" checkbox, and then typing the name of the page to which you want the reader to be sent when he/she tries to go to the page that you're editing.

At the bottom is the option to prevent page renames from updating this redirect. This is very rarely used.


VisualEditor Page Settings TOC-en.png
You can change whether the page shows a Table of Contents by selecting one of these three buttons. The default option is "If needed", which shows a Table of Contents if there are three or more headings.

VisualEditor - Page Settings Edit Links.png
You can make a page not show edit links next to each section header by checking this checkbox.

VisualEditor Apply Changes-en.png
Click "Apply changes" when you're done editing the Page options to return to the page editor.


Editing mathematical formulaeEdit

To add a new mathematical formula to the page, place your cursor where you want it to be inserted, and click on the "Formula" icon ("Σ") in the "Insert" menu on the toolbar.
VisualEditor Formula Insert Menu-en.png

A window will open in which you can type the formula, using LaTeX syntax. VisualEditor will update the formula as you type it, so you can see how it will look as you make changes. Once you are happy with the formula, click the "Done" button.
VisualEditor formula-en.png

To edit an existing mathematical formula on the page, click on it and then click on the "Σ" icon that appears. This will open up the formula window, where you make changes.
VisualEditor - editing existing mathematical formula.png


Rætta matematiskar formlar og onnur serstøk tingEdit

Some items, such as poems and musical scores, are not yet supported by VisualEditor. Until they are, you will need to edit the source wikitext directly if you want to add these or change these.


Snarvegir á knappaborðinumEdit

Many editors are used to entering wikitext directly, especially bold, italics and wikilinks. Keyboard shortcuts allow to quickly insert similar formatting without having to use toolbar items. Here are the common general shortcuts in VisualEditor:

PC snarvegur Handling Mac snarvegur

 Ctrl+B Feitt  Cmd+B

 Ctrl+I Skráskrift  Cmd+I

 Ctrl+K Innset leinkju  Cmd+K

 Ctrl+X Klipp  Cmd+X
