Adding and Editing Articles

Before adding an article, conduct a search to make sure you are not duplicating work. To discuss information on an article, use its talk page. If you need to test editing, you can use the Sandbox to practice.

Formatting Style

The content on the Siglerpedia should follow these formatting style guidelines:

  • The first word on an article is to be bold. (unless it's not the subject; eg: The)
  • Book titles are to be italicized.
  • There can be more than one wiki link to the same article on a page.
  • There are to be no links in headings ( == Heading == ).

Content is most important...formatting can come later.


Categories are used to group related articles and images together. A few that are on the Siglerpedia are Novels, Characters, and Nocturnal. A full list categories can be found here.

To see the how to use categories, please read the Category Help page.


Templates are used to show the same stuff on multiple pages. Some templates are static, like Template:Novels, but some have parameters, like Template:Book. A full list templates can be found here.


Tables are used to arrange data in visual way.

To see the how to use tables, please read the Tables Help page.


To use images on Siglerpedia, they must be uploaded. To see the how to use images, please read the Images Help page.
