Determining which system is in place

Your wiki may use one of three footnote systems. The one shown on the right is the simplest system, where the "Citar" menu does not include any citation templates. If your wiki uses this system, then everything you need to know about footnotes is on this page.
VisualEditor cite menu default.png

The second system has the same type of "Citar" menu, but with several popular citation templates set up for quick access. If your wiki uses this system, then you will find more details at Help:VisualEditor/User guide/Citations-Templates.
VisualEditor references more.png

VisualEditor citoid Cite button.png

In the third system, you again start by clicking the Cite button. Then a dialog box opens, which includes an automatic citation process using the citoid service. If your wiki uses this system, you will find more details at Help:VisualEditor/User guide/Citations-Full.
VisualEditor Citoid Automatic tab.png

Editar una referencia esistente

To edit an existing reference, click on it where it appears in the text (usually as a bracketed number). You will see either a "Básica" icon (bookmark) or an icon (and name) for the template that was used to create this reference. In either case, clicking on the "Edit" button will open a dialog where you can edit the reference.
VisualEditor - Editing references 1.png

For the "Básica" icon, clicking "Edit" opens the Reference dialog. To start changing the reference information, click on it.

Many wikis use templates to format references. If a template is used in your reference, then when you move your pointer over the reference information, all the information in that field will be highlighted .

If a template was used and you click on the reference information, then the Plantía icon (puzzle piece) will appear with some information. Click on the "edit" button to edit the content of the template in the template mini-editor dialog.

VisualEditor - Editing references 6.png

If what appears when you click on a reference is an icon for a standard template for citations (an example is at right), then clicking "Edit" will open the template mini-editor dialog.
VisualEditor - Editing References - Cite Web.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 will show, initially. To add fields, click on "Amestar más información" at the bottom of the mini-editor.
VisualEditor - Editing references 5.png

Calca "Aplicar los cambeos" cuando termines.
VisualEditor Apply Changes-ast.png

Re-utilizar una referencia esistente

If the page already contains a citation that applies to the text you want to source, then you can choose to re-use that existing citation.

To re-use an existing reference, place your cursor in the body of the text where you want to add a new reference (number) for that citation. Then click on the "Reutilizar" item from the "Citar" menu.

(Note: If your wiki has the third footnote system described above, you'll see a "Re-use" tab, in a dialog, instead of a "Re-use" item on the "Citar" menu.)

VisualEditor - Toolbar - Reference.png

In the Referencia 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 "Guetar nes cites actuales") to list only those references that include certain text.
VisualEditor - Editing references 18.png

Amestar una nueva referencia

To add a citation using the "Citar" menu, place your cursor where you want to add it in the text. Then select the appropriate citation type in the menu.
VisualEditor - Toolbar - Reference.png

Usar la cita "Básica"

Shown here is what you will see if you select the "Básica" item.

In the Reference editor, you can add your citation, including formatting.

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 "Llista de referencies" tool.)

VisualEditor - Editing references 20.png

In the Reference dialog, if you want to include a citation template, or any other template, in your new reference, click the Plantía icon (puzzle piece) in the "Inxertar" toolbar menu within the Reference editor.
VisualEditor Template Insert Menu-ast.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.)

After you're done editing your new template, click on "Aplicar los cambeos" to return to the Reference editor, and "Aplicar los cambeos" again to return to the page you're editing.

VisualEditor - Editing references 9.png

If there isn't already a list of references on the page (for example, if you're adding the first reference for the page), you need to specify where the list of references, and their text, will be displayed to the reader.

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

VisualEditor References List Insert Menu-ast.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 on the page at the location where you are placing the group.

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

VisualEditor references list-ast.png

Usar plantíes de cita estándar

Your local wiki may have added extra citation templates to the "Citar" menu. If so, you have quick access to the most-used citation templates for your wiki. (Instructions for adding extra citation templates to your local wiki are available at VisualEditor/Citation tool.)
VisualEditor - Editing References - Cite Pulldown.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 - Cite book required fields.png

To add more parameters, scroll down in the template mini-editor and click on the "Amestar más información" option.

Click on "Inxertar" when you're done.

Editing media galleries


To edit an existing gallery in the visual editor, 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 "Fecho" 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 the visual editor, you must save the entire page in order to save your work.

VisualEditor - Gallery3.png

Editing templates

Starting

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

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

You can also edit a template that is already on the page. When you click on the template to select it, it turns blue, and a box appears with an "Plantía" icon (puzzle piece). Then click on the "Editar" link.
VisualEditor - Template editing 1.png

Some templates are not visible to someone reading a page. In the visual editor, such hidden templates are shown as puzzle icons.
VisualEditor template not visible.png

When you select the icon, the context menu is displayed, and you can edit the template.
VisualEditor template not visible context menu.png

Template parameters

When you add a new template or open an existing one, the visual editor opens the "Tresclusión" dialog. What you see depends upon whether the visual editor knows extra information about that template, called TemplateDataExtension:TemplateData.

The template shown here has no TemplateData set up for it. The dialog shows a link to documentation for the template. You can read the documentation to figure out if the template has any parameters (fields), and what goes in each field. Use numbers as the name for each nameless parameter. The first un-named parameter is named 1, the second is named 2, and so forth.
VisualEditor template with no TemplateData.png

If a template has been updated to contain TemplateData information, then the dialog will show a list of individual (named) parameters.
VisualEditor template with TemplateData.png

For an existing template, you can edit the parameters shown in the dialog, and you can add parameters by clicking "Amestar más información", at the very bottom of the dialog.
VisualEditor - Template editing 3.png

When a template embeds other templates, these sub-templates will appear inside the parameters that display them. They can be edited or removed inside the parameter field.

New sub-templates are added by following the steps for adding a parameter. You may need to check the template documentation to make sure that the sub-template is supported.

VisualEditor - Template editing 5.png

Finishing

When you have finished editing a template, click "Aplicar los cambeos" to close the dialog and return to editing the main page.
VisualEditor Apply Changes-ast.png

Substituting templates

When a template must be substituted, type subst: (colon included) before the template's name.

Autocompletion doesn't work with subst:. If you want to use autocompletion, first find the template you are looking for, and then add subst: in front of the template name.

Then, click the green "Añadir plantía" button.

Add any parameters as usual and click "Inxertar".

VisualEditor - Template editing 7.png

You will see the template expand on the page after you click "Aplicar los cambeos".
VisualEditor - Template editing 8.png

Editing lists

VisualEditor Toolbar Lists and indentation-ast.png
You can use the visual editor to create lists, or to change the format of an existing list. There are two types of lists: unordered (bullet) and ordered (numbered).

To start a new list, just click on one of the two menu items shown here. Or, if you already have typed the list (on separate lines), select (highlight) the list you have typed, then click on one of the menu items.


VisualEditor lists 1 unordered bullet.png
VisualEditor lists 2 ordered numbered.png
Shown here are examples of the two types of lists: unordered (bullet) and ordered (numbered).

VisualEditor lists 3 select to indent.png
If you want to change the indentation level of part of an existing list, select the part of the list that you want to change.

VisualEditor lists 4 indentation menu.png
Then use the menu, or press the Tab key. (The Tab key increases indentation; use the shift key plus the Tab key to decrease indentation)

VisualEditor lists after indenting.png
Here is the result of increased indentation.

VisualEditor lists mixed.png
You can even mix ordered (numbered) and unordered (bullet) lists, if the list items have different indentations.

Editing tables

VisualEditor insert table.png
You can use the visual editor to insert and change tables.

You can even import a table by dragging a comma-separated value (.csv) file from your computer into the main editing window.


When you click on "Table", in the "Inxertar" menu, the visual editor inserts a blank four-by-four table.

Now the "Table" menu is available. From that menu, you can add a caption to the top of the table.

VisualEditor empty table.png

To select a cell, click it once.
VisualEditor tables select one cell.png

To edit the contents of the cell (for example, to add content or to correct a spelling error), double click in the cell. Or you can select the cell and then press Return.

To end your editing of a cell, just click elsewhere.

VisualEditor tables type inside a cell.png

VisualEditor table editing add and remove columns.png
You can add or delete a column or a row.

You can merge cells: Select them, then from the Table menu, click on "Merge cells".
VisualEditor tables merge cells.png

If you merge cells, only the text in one cell is kept; any text in the other cells is deleted when you merge the cells. If you decide that you wanted some or all of the text that was deleted, use the Undo button, move or copy the text you want, then merge the cells again.
VisualEditor tables post-merge cell.png

You can also split cells that were previously merged. All the content that was in the merged cell will remain in the first cell when you do the split. You can then cut and paste text to other cells, if you want.
VisualEditor tables split cells.png

Editing categories

VisualEditor category item-ast.png
To edit categories, on the "Opciones de la páxina" menu, click the "Categoríes" item.

VisualEditor category editing-ast.png
Clicking on "Categoríes" opens a dialog that lists existing categories and allows you to add new ones, and to delete existing categories.

You also have the option of setting or changing the general (default) sorting key, which determines 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". 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 "Añada una categoría". As you type, the visual editor 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 "Desaniciar" icon (trash can) in the dialog that opens.

Clicking on a category also allows you to specify a sorting key for that specific category. Such a sorting key overrides the default sorting key.


VisualEditor Apply Changes-ast.png
Click "Aplicar los cambeos" when you're done editing categories to return to the page editor.

Editing page settings

VisualEditor page settings item-ast.png
To edit a page's settings, click to open the "Opciones de la páxina" menu, in the toolbar, and select the "Configuración de la páxina" button.

VisualEditor Page Settings-ast.png
The "Configuración de la páxina" button opens a dialog that shows several options.

VisualEditor Page Settings Redirects-ast.png
You can make a page a redirect to another page by checking the "Redirixir esta páxina a" checkbox, and then typing the name of the page to which you want to send the reader who 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-ast.png
You can change whether the page shows a Table of Contents by selecting one of these three buttons. The default option is "Si fai falta", which shows a Table of Contents if there are three or more headings.

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

VisualEditor Apply Changes-ast.png

You can not add an automatic signature or datestamp to a page in the visual editor.

Until they are fully supported, you can copy an existing one from another page, or edit the source wikitext directly.
