Editing on Fandom is generally as simple as clicking the 'Edit' button on a page. Doing so will take to you an edit page where you can start to make changes to the page - such adding new information and media, correcting errors, or updating the formatting.

Depending on whether you are signed in, you may receive a different editing experience:

Visual Editor
Most anonymous and newer users will see the Visual Editor, a completely new editing experience based around showing you an accurate visual representation of your changes.
Classic Editor
Other users will see the classic editor - this includes the older visual editing experience and basic source wikitext editing.

Quick tips

Once in an editor, you can use the available tools to quickly add and remove information, change the formatting, add new images and videos, update the page's layout and much more! Once you're done making your changes, just click the 'Publish' button to update the page.

Don't be afraid if you 'break' anything. All edits to a page are stored in the page history, and if something does go wrong you can simply revert to an older version.

Choosing an editor

Signed in users can choose your default editor from a dropdown list in your user preferences (found here).

Setting: Meaning:
Fandom's new Visual Editor Shows the new Visual Editor on all wikis
Fandom's Classic Rich-Text Editor Shows the classic rich-text editor where available. If not, the source editor is shown.
Source Editor Shows the basic source editor on all wikis

Anonymous users will generally always see the Visual Editor by default. In a few specific cases, the Visual Editor may not be available on a particular wiki.

Additionally, the alternative editors can still be found under the 'Edit' button dropdown - for example, you can still access the classic editor from the dropdown even if the Visual Editor is the default.
