Lessons 1. Home


After you have typed in the name you want for your sandbox practice page, hit the enter key or click search icon on left side of search box. A list will then appear and your entry will appear at the top of the list in red. The red just means that your sandbox page has not been created yet. Click on that "red link," and a blank edit box will appear with the name of the sandbox page you just created displayed at the top.

Corrections: The red links are now a 3 choice blue links option the 3rd option is the one to create the page now.

6. Wikitext--Images (cont.) # 11

Top of the page 1st section says:
How to place the image[edit source] Default position is on the left side of the page as you see above.

Default position is on the left side of the page as you see above.

This is the top of the page so the word above can be taken off as no picture above.

9. Visual Editor - Text Styling # 5

Quick Quiz
Last 2 questions info isn't even in this lessons text so it's not relevant to this lesson. Best for the section Help under Visual Editor as there it's in the right section of Visual Editor.

To make some text bold, you can highlight text and type: A. Ctrl I B. Ctrl 6 C. Ctrl U D. None of the above. To make some text italic, you can highlight text and type: A. Ctrl I B. Ctrl U C. Ctrl B D. None of the above.

Visual Editor - Cite References # 7
Quick Quiz - 2nd Question not sure if this needs to be there

Your answer if B. False I just didn't think that this was relevant to this lesson

Visual Editor - Media # 9.1
Adding a photo does work but it says you can move it around

15. However it may not appear just where you want it. To move it around, you can place your mouse on the image and drag it to where you want it.

It doesn't move around unless you go out of it to wikitext

Under Quick Quiz

Visual Editor - Templates # 9.2

Visual Editor - Special Characters # 10
4. The French language is not in the list so it needs to say you can use some of the symbols for other languages for French, Russian, Spanish etc.

I found French symbols in the Latin languages as there was no French. I'm Canadian so I know French symbols but others won't know where to find them.

Quick Quiz - 2nd question/answer no mention of Russian alphabet

3rd question no mention of Spanish language
