How to edit content on a page
To edit content on a page, perform the following steps:
Step 1: Access the editor
- Navigate to the article you want to edit.
- On the MindTouch toolbar, select Edit.
Step 2: Edit your content
Edit the content as necessary.
Step 3: Leave an edit summary (recommended)
As best practice, leave change notes for other editors or yourself. Navigate to the bottom of the page and enter text into the Edit summary text field.
Edit summaries can be viewed in a page's revision history (MindTouch toolbar > Options > Revision history).
Step 4: Save your page
When you are ready to save the changes you have made, click Save.
By default, MindTouch autosaves pages every 25 seconds in case your browser crashes or computer restarts so that you can return to the page and pick up where you left off.
You change the interval to suit your specific editing needs.
At the bottom left, the editor displays how many words and characters your article contains.
