How to edit a wiki
#1
I had no idea where to post this, but here goes. 

So you want to start editing a wiki, huh? I'm here to help!

To start a page:
Click on "new page" icon. It resembles a little book.

Or, you can go any page and look for anything that has red text:
Click to enlarge
(Click to enlarge)

Two apostrophes ('') will italicize text. Three apostrophes (''') will bold the text. Square brackets ([[]]) will link to another page.
Like this:
Code:
'''Lowland White-eye, ''Zosterops eurycricotus''''' is a species of [[white-eye]] in the [[Zosteropidae]] family. It was once considered conspecific with the '''[[Montane White-eye]]'''.

Other cool tricks:

An asterisk (*) will create a list 
A pound sign (#) will create a numbered list
Clicking on Edit will edit a section of a page
Right clicking on a heading will edit a section of a page


This is for All Birds Wiki only, but I've created a template just for author's names and puts the text in SMALL CAPS: 
{{refsmallcaps|<author's name here>}}


How to add an automatic taxobox:
Code:
{{automatic taxobox
| name= Taxon name
| image = Example image.png
| image_width = (Usually 230px) 
| image_caption = (Insert whatever here)
| authority = (For example, Linnaeus, 1756)
| subdivision_ranks = Subdivision ranks underneath the taxa, for example, genera, species, etc.
| subdivision = List of subdivisions
}}

Example of a filled out automatic taxobox:
Code:
{{automatic taxobox
| fossil_range = <br>[[Late Cretaceous]] - [[Holocene]], {{fossilrange|66|0}}
| name= Australaves
| image = Australaves diversity.png
| image_width = 230px
| image_caption = Diversity of Australaves:
[[Peregrine Falcon]], [[Red-legged Seriema]], [[Cockatiel]], [[Carrion Crow]].
| authority = Ericson, 2012
| subdivision_ranks = [[Order]]s
| subdivision = {{linked taxon list 
| Cariamiformes | 
| Eufalconimorphae | 
{{linked taxon list 
| Falconiformes | 
| Psittaciformes | 
| Passeriformes | 
}}
}}
}}

How to add a speciesbox: 
Code:
{{speciesbox
|name=Species common name, in Taxonomy in Flux naming 
|genus = Its genus goes here, needs no formatting
|species =Its species goes here, need no formatting
|status=LC, EN, VU, NT, EX, etc.
|status_system=generally IUCN3.1
|status_ref=  generally <ref name= IUCN>{{cite web|id=(ID number here, can be grabbed from the URL)|title=''Scientific name''|last=BirdLife International|year=2008|work=2008 IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.|accessdate=Whatever day it is}}</ref>
|image=Species name.png
|image_width=230px
|binomial=''Full scientific name here''
|binomial_authority=Who named it?
}}

Filled out species box will look like this:
Code:
{{speciesbox
| name =Common Iora
| genus = Aegithina
| species = tiphia
| image = Common Iora.png
| image_width = 250px
| status = LC
| status_system = IUCN3.1
| status_ref = <ref name=IUCN>{{IUCN|id=22707433 |title=''Aegithina tiphia'' |assessor=BirdLife International |assessor-link=BirdLife International |version=2013.2 |year=2012 |accessdate=26 November 2013}}</ref>
| binomial = ''Aegithina tiphia''
| binomial_authority = ([[Carl Linnaeus|Linnaeus]], [[10th edition of Systema Naturae|1758]])
| synonyms = ''Motacilla tiphia'' {{small|Linnaeus, 1758}}
}}
