Editing a Page

To edit a page, log into the system and click edit on the page you want to edit. Make your changes, then click save. That's it.

Adding a set article

To add a new set article, go to the All Sets by Name page and either click on the set or add it to the page if it isn't listed. Do not add sets to the All Sets by Year page. When adding a new set article, please be sure to add the year and manufacturer in the category section at the bottom of the page.

Adding Spaces

For long lists of text (like checklists) it's best to add a space after every line. Using an editor like Notepad++ allows you to add the spaces quickly by doing a mass replace (search -> replace) and replacing all \n with \n\n. Make sure extended mode is selected.

Uploading and Adding Images

To add an image to a page, first upload the image using the Upload file page, then edit the first line of the page replacing the file name with the one you uploaded. PNG, JPG and GIF images are the only files allowed to be uploaded. Please compress your images for the Web and keep them smaller than 400x400 pixels in size.
