If you want to exit the link label (the text displayed as a link) or continue to write after this link, you can press :

  • press it once will escape the link editing dialog and put your cursor at the end of the element linked (blue framed, to edit this element)
  • press it twice will put the cursor after the element linked, ready to type the rest of your text

To edit the link label of an existing link, click within the link label and type the new one. But if you want to replace the entire label, please note:

  • If you have selected (highlighted) the entire link label, the link will be deleted by typing any key. You may link it from start.
  • To keep the link directly, you may click within that link label, use backspace and delete key without pressing it once more than necessary, and a narrow blue link area will remain there. Now you may type in the new label for the kept link.

Determining which system is in place

Wiikin kee sirna miiljalee akaakuu sadi'i keessa tokko fayyadamuu danda'a. The one shown on the right is the simplest system, where the "Eeri" 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 "Eeri" 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

Wabii duraan jiru gulaaluu

To edit an existing reference, click on it where it appears in the text (usually as a bracketed number). You will see either a "Kan bu'uuraa" 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 "Kan bu'uuraa" 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 Qajojii 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 "Odeeffannoo dabalataa galchi" at the bottom of the mini-editor.

Wabii duraan jirutti fayyadami

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 "Kan duraan jiru fayyadami" item from the "Eeri" 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 "Eeri" menu.)

VisualEditor Cite menu re-use.png

In the Wabii 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 "Wabii kana keessa barbaadi") to list only those references that include certain text.

Shown here is what you will see if you select the "Kan bu'uuraa" 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 "Tareeffama wabiiwwanii" 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 Qajojii icon (puzzle piece) in the "Galchi" toolbar menu within the Reference editor.

Ulaagaa qajojii

When you add a new template or open an existing one, the visual editor opens the "Transclusion" 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 "Odeeffannoo dabalataa galchi", 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.

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

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.

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.

Garee gulaaluuf, baafata "Filannoo fuulaa" irraa, qabduu "Gareewwan" irratti cuqaasi.

Qabduu "Gareewwan" irratti cuqaasun qaaqa tarree garee duraan jiru agarsiisu bana. Qaaqni kun garee haaraa uumuf akkasumas balleessuf nu gargaara.

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 Page Settings Redirects-om.png
You can make a page a redirect to another page by checking the "Fuula kana gara ____tti geessi" 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-om.png
You can change whether the page shows a Table of Contents by selecting one of these three buttons. The default option is "Yoo barbaachise", which shows a Table of Contents if there are three or more headings.

Switching between the visual and wikitext editors

To switch from the visual editor to the wikitext editor, click the [[ ]] button on the far right of the toolbar.

VisualEditor toolbar Page options - Switch to wikitext - Save.png

If you've done any editing, you'll be asked whether you want to keep your changes. Normally you'll click on "Keep changes".

VisualEditor bi-directional switching to wikitext.png

You'll see a diff. (If you clicked on "Discard changes", you'll just see wikitext, ready to edit with the wikitext editor.)

Scroll down, and you'll see the wikitext editing area.

VisualEditor bi-directional switching diff before wikitext.png

You can also switch from the wikitext editor to the visual editor. To do that, click the pencil icon on the far right of the toolbar.

After you click the pencil icon, if you've done any editing you'll be asked whether you want to keep your changes. If you click "Keep changes", you'll go to the visual editor. If you click "Discard changes", you'll be asked to confirm that is what you want to do (click on "Leave Page" to confirm) before the visual editor will start.
