Welcome to CoinFactsWiki!

We'll write our own condensed help soon that hits on the most important points of editing this wiki, but in the meantime you can use [1] to find all the info you'll need on the software (plus a bunch you probably don't!).

How to Post Images

  • Click “special pages” on the left toolbar
  • Choose your file, and give it a filename and summary for the wiki

Once the image is uploaded, you can add it to a post with [[image:PCGS_Logo.png]] for an image uploaded with a filename of PCGS_Logo.png. The filename is case sensitive.

Or, a much simpler way:

Include [[image:filename.jpg]] for an image you haven’t uploaded yet in an article you’re editing, then after saving the article, click the created link to easily upload that image.

How to Create an External Link

To create an external link, simply place the URL of the external page within brackets. To create alternate text for the link, add text within the brackets, immediately following the URL address. Separate the URL address and the alternate text with a space (otherwise the URL address will not work).

How to Create a New Section on a Page

To create a new section on a page, place two equal signs (==) immediately before and after the title for that section. This will make the title appear in bold letters and will place a separation line beneath the title for that section. Placing three equal signs (===) immediately before and after the title for that section will have the same effect without the line.
