Kung nais mong subukin ang VisualEditor nang hindi nagbabago ng alinmang artikulo, narito ang isang pahina kung saan malayang kang masusubok ito. Hindi mo kinakailangan ang isang akawnt upang magamit ang VisualEditor sa pahinang iyon.

Sinisimulan ang VisualEditor

Upang baguhin ang isang pahina gamit ang VisualEditor, i-klik ang "Baguhin" 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 "Baguhin ang batayan" bubukas ang klasikong wikitext source editor.

VisualEditor edit tab-tl.png

Maaari ring buksan ang VisualEditor gamit ang kawing na "baguhin" 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
Headings pull-down menu: allows you to change how the paragraph is formatted. To change the style of a paragraph, put your cursor in the paragraph and select an item in this menu (you don't have to highlight any text). Section titles are formatted "Paulo", and subsections are "Pamuhatan 2", "Pamuhatan 3", and so on. Ang normal na format para sa mga letra ay "Talata"

VisualEditor Toolbar Formatting-tl.png

Formatting: Clicking the "A" opens a 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 (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 (VisualEditor MediaWiki theme clear icon bitmap.png), called "Hawiin ang kaanyuan", removes all character formatting from the selected text, including links.

If you have not selected any text, then when you click 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: The chain icon is the linking tool. Clicking on it (usually after selecting some text) opens the link dialog.

VisualEditor - Cite Pulldown.png
Isangguni menu: The "Isangguni" menu is used to add inline citations (also called "footnotes" or "references"). All projects have access to "Payak" reference formatting and the ability to "Muling paggamit" 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 Isangguni menu at a specific wiki are available at VisualEditor/Citation tool.)


VisualEditor citoid Cite button.png
Isangguni button: If the citoid service is enabled on your wiki, then you will see a "Isangguni" button instead of a Isangguni menu.

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.
  • 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.
  • The table item allows you to insert a table.
  • Ang "Gallery" na icon (isang set ng mga larawan) ay nagpapahintulot sa iyo na isingit ang isang gallery sa pahina.
  • Ang icon na "Formula" (Σ) ay magbubukas ng dayalogo sa pagsisingit ng pormula.
  • Ang icon na "Hiroglipiko" (isang ankh sagisag - ☥)ay nagpapahintulot sa iyo na magpasok ng tagapagsingit-hieroglyphics. (Tingnan sa ibaba.)
  • The "Talasanggunian" 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.

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
Ang menu na Mga kagustuhan ng pahina ay nasa kaliwa ng buton na pang Itala ang pahina. Sa menu na ito, may mga pagpipilian upang isaayos ang mga pagtatakdang pampahina, kagaya nang kung ang pahina ay isang redirect, o kung papaano ito nalalagyan ng talatuntunan; ang magdagdag, magbago, o magbura ng mga kategorya; at upang makita, gamit ang item na "Wika", ang talaan ng mga artikulo na may kaparehong paksa na nasa ibang mga wika. Maari mo ring pagpalitin (isang direksyon lamang) mula sa VisualEditor patungong klasikong wikitext source na pamamatnugot nang hindi nawawala ang mga ginawa mong pagbabago.

VisualEditor bi-directional switching square brackets icon.png
The Pumalit sa batayang pamamatnugot button is next to the Itala ang pahina button. It allows you to switch to the wikitext editor.

Itinatala ang mga pagbabago

Matapos ang iyong ginagawang pagbabago, i-klik ang bughaw na "Itala ang pahina" buton na nasa toolbar. Kung wala namang ginawang pagbabago, ang buton ay makikitang walang bisa (magkukulay abuhin). Upang kanselahin ang iyong mga pagbabagong ginawa, isara lamang ang iyong browser window.
VisualEditor toolbar actions-tl.png

Ang pagpindot sa pindutang berde "Itala ang pahina" 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 Bantayan. 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 mga 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 just one word, you can either select that word or just put the cursor within that word.


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

VisualEditor will try to help with internal links by looking for likely matches.


VisualEditor link tool 2015.png
Once you have entered or selected the link, you complete the linking process by pressing Enter or by pressing the "Done" button. Your link will immediately appear on the page, but as with other changes to the page, it will not be saved until you save the entire page.

VisualEditor-link tool-external link.png
To link to a web page on another website, the process is similar: Choose the "Kawing panlabas" tab, and enter a URL in the box.

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.

In the link editing dialog, you can then change where the link goes. You can also remove the link altogether by pressing the "Tanggalin" button in the lower left corner of the dialog. You can also open the link's target in another window by clicking on the link in the context menu. (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 :

  • 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.

For further information, see Help using citation templates or Help using citoid's Cite 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 "Isangguni" 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 "Isangguni" 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

Pagpapalit sa umiiral na sanggunian

To edit an existing reference, click on it where it appears in the text (usually as a bracketed number). You will see either a "Payak" 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 "Payak" 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 Padron 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 "Magdagdag ng karagdagang impormasyon" at the bottom of the 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

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 "Muling paggamit" item from the "Isangguni" 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 "Isangguni" 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 loob ng mga kasalukuyang sanggunian") to list only those references that include certain text.
VisualEditor - Editing references 18.png

Pagdagdag ng bagong sanggunian

To add a citation using the "Isangguni" 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 "Payak" 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 "Talasanggunian" 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 Padron icon (puzzle piece) in the "Isingit" toolbar menu within the Reference editor.
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.

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

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 click "Isingit".

VisualEditor references list-tl.png

Using standard cite templates

Your local wiki may have added extra citation templates to the "Isangguni" 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 "Magdagdag ng karagdagang impormasyon" option.

Click on "Isingit" when you're done.

VisualEditor - Editing references - Add parameter.png

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

Clicking the "Midya" 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.

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

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

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 clicking on the image, then clicking on the "Midya" 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 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.
VisualEditor Media Insert Menu-en.png

Click the "Upload" tab and select an image from your computer. You can type the file name, or drag an image into the box.
VisualEditor - Media upload 1.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 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 "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 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 "Padron" icon (puzzle piece) in the "Isingit" menu.
VisualEditor Template Insert Menu-tl.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 "Magdagdag ng padron".
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 "Padron" icon (puzzle piece). Then click on the "Baguhin" 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 "Pagsasali" 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 "Magdagdag ng karagdagang impormasyon", 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 "Ilapat ang mga pagbabago" to close the dialog and return to editing the main page.
VisualEditor Apply Changes-tl.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 "Magdagdag ng padron" button.

Add any parameters as usual and click "Isingit".

VisualEditor - Template editing 7.png

You will see the template expand on the page after you click "Ilapat ang mga pagbabago".
VisualEditor - Template editing 8.png

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 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 "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.

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

VisualEditor category editing-tl.png
Clicking 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 save all your editing changes.)

VisualEditor - Category editing 2.png
To remove an existing category, click on it and click on the "Tanggalin" 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-tl.png
Click "Ilapat ang mga pagbabago" when you're done editing categories to return to the page editor.

VisualEditor Page Settings Redirects-tl.png
You can make a page a redirect to another page by checking the "Ipakarga ang pahinang ito sa" 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.

You can change whether the page shows a Table of Contents by selecting one of these three buttons. The default option is "Kung kinakailangan", which shows a Table of Contents if there are three or more headings.

Editing mathematical formulae

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 "Isingit" menu on the toolbar.

A window will open in which you can type the formula, using LaTeX syntax. the visual editor 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.

Editing poems and other special items

Some items, such as association lists, poems, and musical scores, are not yet fully supported by the visual editor.

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

You can not add an automatic 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.

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.

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

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.

Keyboard shortcuts

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 the visual editor:
