Sinisimulan ang VisualEditor

Upang baguhin ang isang pahina gamit ang VisualEditor, i-klik ang "I-edit" tab na nasa ibabaw ng pahina.

Maaring magtagal ng ilang segundo bago bumukas ang pahina para sa pamamatnugot, lalo't higit kung may kahabaan ang pahinang ito.

Sa pag-klik ng tab na "I-edit ang source" bubukas ang klasikong wikitext source editor.

VisualEditor edit tab-tl.png

Maaari ring buksan ang VisualEditor gamit ang kawing na "i-edit" sa bawat seksiyon.
VisualEditor - Section edit links-en.png

Pagsisimula: ang toolbar ng VisualEditor

Larawan ng screen ng VisualEditor toolbar
Makikita ang toolbar ng VisualEditor sa ibabaw ng iskrin kapag nagsimula kang mamatnugot gamit ito. Kasama rito ang ilang kilalang mga icon:

VisualEditor - Toolbar - Undo-redo.png
Ibalik at Gawin muli ang mga nagawang pagbabago

VisualEditor Toolbar Headings-tl.png
Talang pahila-pababa ng mga pamuhatan: pinapayagan ka nito na baguhin ang ayos ng talata. Upang baguhin ang estilo ng talata, ilagay ang cursor sa talata at pumili ng aytem sa menu (hindi na kailangang i-highlight ang anumang teksto). Ang mga pamagat ng seksyon ay naka-format "Paulo", at ang mga subseksyon ay "Sub-pamuhatan 1", "Sub-pamuhatan 2", at iba pa. Ang normal na format para sa mga letra ay "Talata"

VisualEditor Toolbar Formatting-tl.png

Formatting: Sa pagklik ng "A", bubukas ang menu.

  • Ang "Makapal" na bagay (B) ay nagpapakapal/nagpapatapang sa pagkakasulat sa napiling mga titik.
  • Ang "Nakapahilis" na bagay (I) ay nagpapahilig sa pagkakasulat ng napiling mga titik.
  • Ang bagay na "Nakataas na panitik" (x2) ay dahilan upang ang mga napiling teksto ay mag-anyong mas maliit kaysa sa mga katabing teksto at bahagyang mas mataas kumpara sa kapaligid na teksto.
  • Ang bagay na "Nakababang panitik" (x2) ay dahilan upang ang napiling teksto ay mag-anyong mas maliit kaysa sa katabing mga teksto at bahagyang mas mababa kaysa sa kapaligid na teksto.
  • Ang bagay na "Pagpawi sa teksto"(S)ay nagdaragdag ng isang solidong bara sa napiling teksto.
  • The "Kodigo ng kompyuter" 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.
  • Ang bagay na "Salungguhit"(U)ay nagdaragdag ng isang solidong guhit sa ilalim ng napiling teksto.
  • The "Wika" item (文A) allows you to label the language (for example, Japanese) and direction (for example, right-to-left) of the selected text.
  • Ang panghuling aytem na (VisualEditor MediaWiki theme clear icon bitmap.png), na tinatawag na "Hawiin ang kaanyuan", ay nagtatanggal ng lahat ng character formatting mula sa napiling teksto, kasama na ang mga kawing.

If you have not selected any text, then when you press the "A" to open the menu, and then select an item, that formatting will apply to the text that you start typing, from wherever your cursor is located.


VisualEditor - Toolbar - Linking.png
Linking tool: Ang kadena ay ang gamit sa pagkakawing. Kapag kinlik (kalimitan matapos pumili ng mga teksto) ay magbubukas sa kawing sa pakikipag-usap.

VisualEditor - Cite Pulldown.png
Magsipi menu: The "Magsipi" menu is used to add inline citations (also called "footnotes" or "references"). All projects have access to basic reference formatting and the ability to reuse citations by using this menu. It also gives users quick access to local citation templates, if these are enabled on their wiki.

(Ang mga panuto para sa pagdadagdag ng lokal na sanggunian para sa Magsipi menu ng isang partikular na wiki ay matatagpuan sa VisualEditor/Citation tool .)


VisualEditor citoid Cite button-tl.png
Tukuyin button: If the Citoid service is enabled on your wiki, you will see a Tukuyin button instead of a Magsipi menu. (To check whether it's enabled, see the page "Special:Version" on your wiki and the page Where citoid is enabled.)

The citoid service tries to fill out citation templates automatically.


VisualEditor Toolbar Lists and indentation-tl.png
Mga talaan at pagpapalugit: Pinapayagan ka ng unang dalawang ikono na gumawa ng mga talang nakabilang o nakapunglo. Pinapayagan ka naman ng huling dalawa na damihan o bawasan ang antas ng pagpapalugit ng nilalaman.

VisualEditor Insert Menu-tl.png
Isingit: Maaring maiba ang "Isingit" menu sa ilang mga proyekto. Nasa ibaba ang lista ng lahat ng mga pagpipiliang maaring makita.
  • Binubuksan ng ikonong "Midya" (larawan ng mga bundok) ang kahong diyalogong pang-midya.
  • Ang icon na "Padron" (isang piraso ng puzzle) ay magpapahintulot sa iyo na magbago ng mga padron.
  • The "Table" item allows you to insert a table.
  • Ang "Komento" item (pananalitang nakapaloob sa hugis-lobo) ay nagpapahintulot sa iyo na magsingit ng mga komento na hindi nakikita ng mga mambabasa; ang mga komentong ito ay makikita lamang kung nasa pamamaraang nagpapatnugot at sa gayon ay ipinakikita sa pamamagitan ng icon na tandang pandamdam.
  • Ang icon na "Hiroglipiko" (isang ankh sagisag - ☥)ay nagpapahintulot sa iyo na magpasok ng tagapagsingit-hieroglyphics. (Tingnan sa ibaba.)
  • The "Code block" item allows you to insert code.
  • The "Musical notation" item allows you to insert a musical notation.
  • Ang "Galeriya" na icon (isang set ng mga larawan) ay nagpapahintulot sa iyo na isingit ang isang gallery sa pahina.
  • Ang icon na "Pormulang pangmatematika" (Σ) ay magbubukas ng dayalogo sa pagsisingit ng pormula.
  • The "Graph" item allows you to insert a graph.
  • The "Ang iyong lagda" item allows you to insert a signature that you use on the project. It will be greyed out (not selectable) when you are editing a type of page (a "namespace"), such as an article, where signatures should not be inserted.
  • Ang icon na "Talasanggunian" (tatlong libro) ay nagbubukas sa kahong pandayalogo na kung saan maaaring tukuyin kung saan maipapakita ang mga references sa mga mambabasa. Kalimitan, kinakailangan lamang itong gawin isang beses sa bawat pahina.

Special character insertion: Ang icon na "Natatanging panitik" (Ω) sa "Isingit" menu, kapag kinlik, ay magpapakita ng dayalogo na mayroong ispesyal na mga characters. Sa pamamagitan ng pag-klik sa isang partikular na character, maipapaloob mo ito sa teksto. Kasama sa mga ispesyal na character na ito ang ilang mga pamatayang simbolo, diin at mga simbolong matematiko. (Maaring gawing pasadyang panlokal ang listahang ito. Tingnan ang VisualEditor/Special characters para sa panuto.)
VisualEditor Toolbar SpecialCharacters-tl.png

VisualEditor toolbar edit notices icon.png
The Edit notices button displays any notices for the page.

VisualEditor More Settings-tl.png
The Mga kagustuhan ng pahina menu is to the left of the Ilathala ang binago button and the Switch editor menu. On this menu there is a button to open an Mga kagustuhan dialog with the following (left side) tabs:
  • Mga kategorya allows you to add categories to this page and to adjust how the page is sorted, when displayed within a category by setting a different index to sort with.
  • Mga kagustuhan ng pahina allows you to make the page a redirect and adjust options of this redirect, to adjust settings regarding the displaying of the Table of Contents, to disable the edit links next to each heading, and to define the page as a disambiguation page.
  • Advanced settings allows you to adjust the settings regarding indexation of the page by search engines, showing a tab to add a new section, and the displayed title.
  • Languages shows a list of pages in other languages that are linked to that page.
  • Templates used shows a list of links to each template used on this page.

The tabs of the Options dialog are also displayed in the Mga kagustuhan ng pahina menu and can be opened by clicking on it. Furthermore the Mga kagustuhan ng pahina menu contains the items View as left-to-right or View as right-to-left and the item Hanapin at palitan, which opens a bar, where you can insert words or regular expressions you are searching for and those to replace them with, together with several buttons for options.


OOjs UI icon edit-ltr.svg
The Switch editor button is next to the Ilathala ang binago button. It allows you to switch to the wikitext editor.

Itinatala ang mga pagbabago

Matapos ang iyong ginagawang pagbabago, i-klik ang bughaw na "Ilathala ang binago" buton na nasa toolbar. Kung wala namang ginawang pagbabago, ang buton ay makikitang walang bisa (magkukulay abuhin). To cancel all your editing changes, close your browser window, or press the "Basahin" tab above the edit toolbar.
VisualEditor toolbar actions-en.png

Ang pagpindot sa pindutang berde "Ilathala ang mga pagbabago..." ay magbubukas ng isang kahong diyalogo kung saan makakapagpasok ka ng isang maikling buod ng inyong mga gawain, makakapagmarka ng pagbabago bilang maliit, at makapagdaragdag ng pahina sa iyong $watchlist. Ang kahon para sa buod ay katumbas ng Buod: field sa wikitext editor.

Maari mo ring marebisa ang iyong pagbabago gamit ang buton na "Repasuhin ang iyong pagbabago" upang masiguro na gagana sila ayon sa iyong pakay bago mo itala ang mga naturang pagbabago. Kagaya ito ng buton na "Ipakita ang pagbabago" sa wikitext editor.

Ang buton na "Tumuloy sa pamamatnugot" ay magbabalik sa iyo sa pahinang iyong binabago. Maari mong itala ang mga pagbabago pagkaraan.

VisualEditor save dialog-tl.png

Pagbabago sa mga kawing

VisualEditor - Toolbar - Linking.png
Maaaring magdagdag ng mga kawing sa pamamagitan ng icon na "Link" (mga kadena) na nasa toolbar, o sa pamamagitan ng paggamit ng shortcut na Ctrl+K (o ⌘ Command+K kung gamit ang Mac).

If you select (highlight) text and then press the "Link" button, that text will be used in creating the link. For a link that involves only one word, you can either select that word or just put the cursor within that word.


VisualEditor-link tool-search results-tl.png
Kung gamit mo ang alinman sa buton o ang shortcut, magbubukas ang diyalogo na kung saan maari mong i-type ang kawing.

Susubukin ng VisualEditor na tumulong sa "panloob" na kawing sa pamamagitan ng paghahanap sa mga maaring kapareha habang nagsisimula kang mag-type. Kapag naipasok o napili mo na ang kawing, maaari mong pindutin ang ↵ Enter, i-klik ang labas ng kahon, o pindutin ang ikono ng pagsara (<). Makikita mo ang kawing mo sa pahina ng VisualEditor, ngunit hindi ito maitatala hangga't hindi mo pa naitatala ang pahina.


VisualEditor-link tool-external link.png
Upang mai-link sa isang web page sa isa pang website, magkatulad ang proseso: Piliin ang tab na "Kawing panlabas", at maglagay ng isang URL sa kahon.

VisualEditor link tool simple link.png
External links without labels look like this: [1]. Maaari mo itong maidagdag sa pamamagitan ng paglalagay ng iyong cursor papalayo mula sa kahit anong salita (hal. matapos ang patlang). Buksan ang kagamitan para sa pagkawing sa pamamagitan ng pag-klik sa buton o pindutin ang mga tekladong pang-shortcut. I-type ang URL sa kahon, at i-klik ang buton na "Done" upang isingit ang kawing.

VisualEditor-context menu-link tool.png
Upang baguhin o tanggalin ang isang umiiral na kawing, i-klik mula sa loob ng teksto ng kawing, pindutin ang icon na "Link" na lalabas malapit rito. Ang kahong pandayalogo ay lalabas, para sa iyong gagawing pagbabago. (Maaari ka ring makarating sa kahon pandayalogo sa pamamagitan ng Ctrl+K shortcut sa teklado.) When a link is selected, it appears as blue framed.

Sa kahong pandayalogo, maari mo nang palitan kung saan magagawi ang kawing. Maaari mo ring tanggalin ang lahat ng kawing sa pamamagitan ng pagpindot sa buton na "Tanggalin" sa gawing kaliwang ibabang sulok ng kahon. You can also open the link's target in another window by pressing on the copy of the link in the dialog box. (You might want do this to check if an external link is valid.)

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

  • Pressing 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)
  • Pressing 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, press 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.
  • To edit the link label directly without deleting it, put the cursor within that link label, use the backspace and delete keys (no more than necessary), and a narrow blue link area will remain there. Now you may type in the new label for the kept link.
  • You can also link to categories, files and more.

Pagpapalit sa mga sanggunian

For further information, see Help using citation templates or Help using citoid's "Magsipi" button

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 "Magsipi" 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 "Magsipi" 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-tl.png
In the third system, you again start by pressing the Tukuyin 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 Inspector-tl.png

Pagpapalit sa umiiral na sanggunian

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

For the "Sanggunian" icon, pressing "Baguhin" opens the reference dialog. To start changing the reference information, press on it.

Maraming wiki ang gumagamit ng padron upang bigyan ng kaanyuan ang mga sanggunian. Kung gumamit ng isang padron sa iyong sanggunian, ang lahat ng teksto sa padron ay maha-highlight kapag kinlik ang impormasyon ng sanggunian.

Kung ginamit ang isang padron at na-klik mo ang impormasyon sa padrong iyon, ang icon na $template (piraso ng puzzle) ay lalabas. I-klik ang naturang icon upang baguhin ang nilalaman ng padron sa mini-editor dialog template.

VisualEditor - Editing references 6.png

If what appears when you press on a reference is an icon for a standard template for citations (an example is at right), then pressing "Baguhin" will open the template mini-editor dialog.
VisualEditor - Editing References - Cite Web.png

Sa loob ng padrong mini-editor, maaari mong idagdag o alisin ang mga uri ng impormasyon o palitan ang kasalukuyang nilalaman. Ang mga fields (parameters ng padron) na may laman ang na dapat na nakikita sa una. Upang magdagdag ng fields, i-klik ang "Add" sa ibaba ng mini-editor.
VisualEditor - Editing references 5.png

I-klik ang "Ilapat ang mga pagbabago" kung ikaw ay tapos na.
VisualEditor Apply Changes-tl.png

Muling paggamit sa umiiral na sanggunian

Kapag may sanggunian na ang pahina na patungkol sa mga teksto na nais mong lagyan ng pinaggalingan, maaari mo nang magamit muli ang nasabing sanggunian.

Upang magamit muli ang umiiral na sanggunian, ipatong ang cursor sa katawan ng teksto na nais mong lagyan ng bagong sangguniang (bilang) para sa talababang iyon. I-klik ang "Re-use reference" mula sa "$cite" menu.

(Note: If your wiki has the third footnote system described above, you'll see a "Gamiting muli" tab, in a dialog, instead of a "Gamitin muli" item on the "Magsipi" menu.)

VisualEditor Cite menu re-use.png

In the Sanggunian 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 "Maghanap sa mga kasalukuyang sinipi") to list only those references that include certain text.
VisualEditor - Editing references 18.png

Pagdagdag ng bagong sanggunian

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

Using the "Basic" citation

Shown here is what you will see if you select the basic references item. Sa editor ng sanggunian, maaari mong dagdagan, baguhin at paanyuan ang iyong sanggunian.

Maari mong ilagay ang isang reference sa isang partikular na grupo, kaya lamang, karaniwan, ito ay hinahayaang bakante. (Ang pagpipiliang ito ay ginagamit upang ipakita ang mga grupo ng sanggunian na may kasangkapang "Talasanggunian".)

VisualEditor - Editing references 20.png

Kung magdadagdag ka ng bagong sanggunian at nais mong isali ang isang padron dito, i-klik ang ikonong Pagsasali (piraso ng puzzle) sa toolbar ng editor ng sanggunian.
VisualEditor Template Insert Menu-tl.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.)

Kapag natapos na ang pagbabago sa iyong panibagong padron, i-klik and "Ilapat ang mga pagbabago" upang magbalik sa Reference editor, at i-klik muli ang "Ilapat ang mga pagbabago" upang magbalik naman sa pahinang iyong binabago.

VisualEditor - Editing references 9.png

Kung wala pang talasanggunian sa pahina (halimbawa, kung idadagdag mo pa lang ang unang sanggunian ng pahina), kailangan mong tukuyin king saan makikita ng mga mambabasa ang listahan ng sanggunian at ang kanilang teksto.

Ipuwesto ang cursor sa lugar kung saan nais mong ipakita ang mga sanggunian (karaniwa'y nasa ilalim ng pahina), buksan ang menu na "Isingit" at i-klik ang "Talasanggunian" icon (tatlong mga libro).

VisualEditor References List Insert Menu-tl.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 press "Isingit".

VisualEditor references list-tl.png

Using standard cite templates

Your local wiki may have added extra citation templates to the "Magsipi" 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

Pressing 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 press on the "Add" option.

Press on "Isingit" when you are done.

Editing images and other media files

Editing images

Upang makapagdagdag ng bagong larawan (o ibang talaksang midya) sa pahina, i-klik ang ikonong "Midya" sa toolbar (isang larawan ng mga bundok).
VisualEditor Media Insert Menu-tl.png

Magbubukas sa pag-klik ng ikonong "Midya" ang isang kahong diyalogo na automatikong maghahanap sa Wikimedia Commons para sa mga talaksang midyang may kaugnayan sa pahinang pinapatnugutan mo.

Maaari ka ring maghanap ng ibang mga talaksang midya sa pagbabago ng tekstong nasa loob ng kahon ng paghahanap sa kahong diyalogo.

I-klik ang kagyat (thumbnail) upang mamili ng talaksan.

This places the image onto the page you are editing.

VisualEditor - Media editing 2.png

Pinapayagan ka ng kahong diyalogong pang-midya na magdagdag (at mamatnugot) ng kapsiyon, na maaaring may kaanyuan at kawing.
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.
VisualEditor - 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

Kapag tapos ka na, i-klik mo ang "Ilapat ang mga pagbabago" upang maisara ang kahong diyalogo at makabalik sa editor ng pahina.
VisualEditor Apply Changes-tl.png

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

You can resize an existing image by pressing on it, then moving the resize icon (the two-headed arrow on one or both bottom corners).

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

VisualEditor - Media editing 3.png

Uploading images

You can upload images from a tab in the media dialog, or by dragging and dropping a file into the editor, or by pasting an image from your clipboard.
VisualEditor - Media upload 1.png

Press the "Upload" tab and select an image from your computer. You can type the file name, or drag an image into the box. If you dragged and dropped an image directly into the editor, or pasted one from your clipboard, this tab will open automatically.
VisualEditor - Media upload 1.5.png

You need to describe the image and add categories to it so that other people can find it.
VisualEditor - Media upload 2.png

The image will be inserted into the page when you are done.
VisualEditor-logo.svg

Editing media galleries

To add a new gallery, press the "Galeriya" icon (a set of photos) on the "Isingit" menu. (If you don't see this icon on that menu, then your local wiki has decided to delay implementing this functionality in the visual editor.)
VisualEditor - Gallery1.png

To edit an existing gallery in the visual editor, press that gallery. Then, near the bottom of the gallery, press 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 press 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 publish your changes. As with other changes made using the visual editor, you must publish the entire page in order to publish your work.

VisualEditor - Gallery3.png

Editing templates

The powerful MediaWiki template system lets you insert dynamic content, text from other pages, and much more. For a detailed explanation and examples, see the Templates help page.

In the VisualEditor you can search for a relevant template, add an invocation or transclusion on the page you’re editing and, if needed, add custom content using parameters.

Insert new template

To add a template to a page, place your cursor at the position on the page where you want the template to be inserted. Then open the Isingit menu and select "OOjs UI icon puzzle-ltr.svg Padron". Alternatively, type two curly brackets {{ to open the same dialog.
VisualEditor Template Insert Menu-tl.png
Find the template you want to insert by typing either its name or a relevant keyword. Results containing the search term in either the name or description will display in a dropdown. This should help you find a relevant template, even if you don’t know its exact name.

If you’re having trouble finding the kind of template you want by using keywords, you can look on other wiki pages with similar content and view or edit the page source to see which templates are in use. When you find the desired template’s name, you can type it into this field to insert it here.

Screenshot of the template search field in the Visual Editor

You can also edit a template that’s already on a page. When you select the template you want to edit, it turns blue, and a box appears displaying "OOjs UI icon puzzle-ltr.svg Padron". Then select the "I-edit" link or double click on the template itself to open the template.
Screenshot of the VisualEditor interface with a template selected

Some templates are not visible to someone reading a page. In the visual editor, such hidden templates are still shown so that you can click and edit or delete them. The name of the template will be shown next to the puzzle icon and both will be grayed out.
Screenshot of hidden templates in the Visual Editor interface

Template parameters

You’ll see this dialog box when you’re adding a new template or editing one already in place. What you see in the box depends on whether the template in question contains TemplateData , helpful metadata added by other editors to make it easier to edit templates in the Visual Editor.

When a template contains TemplateData, the VisualEditor can use it to present annotated fields for you to fill in.


For templates that have some community-provided TemplateData, the VisualEditor displays a list of the named parameters and, often, descriptions and instructions explaining the meaning and required format for each parameter’s values.

Screenshot of template parameters in the Visual Editor interface
Template parameters in the Visual Editor interface

You can disable any optional parameter (which have blue checkboxes on the left side). If a parameter’s checkbox is grayed out and not clickable, the template requires that parameter, so it can’t be disabled.

When you insert a new template, you may find that some optional parameters are pre-selected. That means the author(s) of the template recommends the use of those parameters. It’s best to review all parameters that will be used in a template to ensure you understand their use.

Clicking an unchecked parameter adds it to the template. Clicking a parameter that’s already been added takes you to the parameter’s input field.

Some template parameters will show as “deprecated”. Don’t use deprecated parameters when inserting a template; they’re only visible to you because those parameters are in use on older pages where this template was included.

Screenshot of template parameters in the Visual Editor interface
Interface for adding more parameters to a template in the VisualEditor

Adding undocumented parameters

If you’re inserting or editing a template whose author hasn’t laid out its parameters in TemplateData, it has what we call “undocumented” or “unnamed parameters”. In these cases, you should consult the page for the template itself. There you can learn how to correctly employ and work with all of the template’s parameters. This includes learning the exact names of the parameters as written by the template author.

If you find in the documentation that the template expects parameters without names, fill in numbers as placeholders for the parameter names using the undocumented parameter input, then add text to the values you want to provide as you normally would.

Example:

  • first unnamed parameter: “1”
  • first unnamed parameter’s value: “en_US”
  • second unnamed parameter: “2”
  • second unnamed parameter’s value: “yes”

If you accidentally include nonexistent, misspelled or erroneous parameters, the values you enter for those parameters won’t show up on the page you’re editing.

Screenshot of a template missing TemplateData
Template without TemplateData in the Visual Editor

Autogenerated parameters

In this example, the template in question lacks TemplateData but it was possible to autogenerate the parameters. This means that the undocumented parameters have already been added for you, but the names may not be easily understandable and the dialog cannot display any directions or descriptions. As a result the dialog box provides a link to the template’s documentation, which should help you deduce and fill in the template’s various parameters.
Autogenerated parameters in the VisualEditor.png

Editing multi-part template content

During editing, you may open template content consisting of multiple templates or a single template linked to some wikitext. This differs from the nested templates described below. In this case, the templates are better visualized as being stacked or connected.

This content often contains “unbalanced templates,” templates which are incomplete on their own and need to be paired with some wikitext or another template in order to function.

These related pieces of template content must be created in wikitext, but can be edited in the VisualEditor. In these cases you will see a notice at the top of the dialog to signal the situation and a specialized toolbar will be visible at the bottom of the sidebar. There you can use the icon buttons to add additional templates, additional wikitext, delete elements or change their order.

Screenshot of the interface to edit multi-part template content in the VisualEditor
Editing multi-part template content in the VisualEditor

Nested templates

Templates can include other templates as the value for parameters. You’ll recognize it when you see a parameter whose value contains the double curly braces ( {{ }} ) denoting a template.

The VisualEditor can’t present this template within a template (a nested template) using the editor’s easy-to-use interface, so if you want to nest a template yourself, you’ll need to understand how to add the template by hand in wikitext into the appropriate parameter field.

Screenshot of the VisualEditor template interface showing an embedded template
Embedded template in the VisualEditor

Completing your edit

When you have finished editing a template, you can click "Ilapat ang mga pagbabago". Then you can preview your edit and make sure it looks the way you want and expect.

You may also see an error message, which (like the other TemplateData mentioned above) is community-provided content and may vary in usefulness. You may need to consult the template’s own documentation to get to the bottom of some errors. If you’re still having trouble, consider posting about your problem on the template’s talk page.

When editing a template on a page using the VisualEditor on a mobile device, you’ll see that the sidebar starts out hidden. You can make it visible by pressing the “Show/hide options” button.

Substituting templates

When you insert a template in a wiki page, its content and appearance are reevaluated every time the page loads, based on the template code and the values of its parameters. This means if someone updates the code of a template, then every page which uses that template will also get updated when they publish.

There’s another, much less common way to use templates, though, and that’s to substitute a template. Doing this permanently includes the template content just as it appears at the moment you insert it. It will not update if the template code is later changed.

Most users won’t ever need to resort to substitution. Substitution is typically only useful when you need to capture the exact appearance of one version of a template, such as when content is under development and needs evaluation.

To substitute a template in the VisualEditor, insert a template using the name syntax subst:<template name>. (Autocomplete doesn’t work in this case.) Then press the blue “Add template” button.

When you’re finished, press “Insert”, which will insert the template content as you see it.

Editing lists

VisualEditor Toolbar Lists and indentation-tl.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 press 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 press on one of the menu items.

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.

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)

Here is the result of increased indentation.

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

Editing tables

VisualEditor insert table-tl.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 press on "Table", in the "Isingit" 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.

To select a cell, press it once.

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

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

You can add, move or delete a column or a row.

You can merge cells: Select them, then from the Table menu, press 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.
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.

Pamamatnugot sa mga kategorya

VisualEditor category item-tl.png
To edit categories, on the "Mga kagustuhan ng pahina" menu, press the "Mga kategorya" item.

VisualEditor category editing-tl.png
Pressing on "Mga kategorya" 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 "Magdagdag ng kategorya". 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 publish all your editing changes.)

VisualEditor - Category editing 2.png
Upang tanggalin ang isang umiiral na kategorya, i-klik mo ito at i-klik ang ikonong "Tanggalin" (basurahan) sa kahong diyalogo na mabubuksan.

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

Pamamatnugot sa mga pormulang matematiko at iba pang natatanging bagay

May ilang mga bagay, tulad ng mga galeriya ng mga larawan, mga pormulang matematiko, at mga partitura, na hindi pa sinusuportahan ng VisualEditor. Hanggang sinusuportahan na ito, kakailanganin mong baguhin nang deretsahan ang batayang wikisintaksis nito kung nais mong baguhin o magdagdag nito.

In most cases, the existing items can be edited, but new ones cannot be inserted in the visual editor.

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