For your first edit we will add some content to a special page on the wiki, your User page.
| Step 1: Go to your User page. Your User page is automatically created for you after you create an account on WikiEducator. To access it click on your User name just to the right of the image at the very top of any page. This will take you to your User page.
Tip: If you don't see your User name, you must first log in. Click on the "log in" link on the top of the page, and log in with the username and password you created in the previous tutorial
Visit the Show me how screen movie for a practical demonstration. (Not recommended for low bandwidth connections)
Congratulations. You have now made your first edit and published to the Internet.
For the time being we are only concerned with the Save page and Show preview buttons. The Show Preview is useful to get a quick look at what your page will look like before is actually saved.
Warning - the "Show preview" button does not save your edits. You must hit the Save page button after previewing your page.
However, in the Preview mode you can scroll back down to enter more text, or fix something that doesn't look right. Hitting the Save page button will save your page on WikiEducator and put your page back into View mode.
