AuthorGuidelines

WikiHistory pages will be strictly formatted for uniformity. This will make it simpler to read from page to page as you navigate through history.

Wikihistory requires a password due to spambots. enter: itrepeats to edit.

§One year one page

There will be only one WikiHistory page with the title of a single year, for example 1995 CE. History for that single year is presented on that page with links to other pages for additional detail. If historical information becomes too lengthy, editors may move the information to a linked page. Informational and supporting pages can be created by adding a link on the page. Until each year is completed, all new pages will appear with a template. If you are creating a supporting or informational page, you will need to simply erase most of the template.

If a new page is created, a template with all the page basics will appear. After adding historical information remove the line that tells to add information. It is no longer necessary. It only appears on blank pages. Many blank pages have been created to make the editing process as simple as possible.

The only manual thing that should be entered for a new page is that the decade in which the year appears (for example: for the year 1995, the decade is 1991-2000 CE) and should be entered at the top and bottom of the page replacing the <add> found there. This causes the page to automatically create a next and previous page navigation. If this causes any confusion, just leave it as is and an editor will fix it later.

§Other page formatting

When a page for a particular year does not exist, authors may create one. A standard template format is provided. DO NOT remove the TOC template at the top of the page. There are also page "trails" at the top and bottom of the page. These have a <Add TOC> mark in them. This text needs to be replaced with the title of the "decade page". This is the page that lists ten years, and the one you were probably on when you created the new page for a single day. Copy and paste the title of that page to replace the <Add TOC> text. When saved, it will point to the previous and next pages.

If the decade page is not formatted as a bullet list but as a table, you may change it to a bullet list. All decades were once formatted as tables and now need to be bullet lists to support this previous and next page technology. If you aren't sure what to do. Just leave the <Add TOC> text alone and someone will come along and change it later.
