The VisualEditor on Fandom is as simple as clicking the "The classic editor" button on a page. Doing so will take you to an edit page where you can make changes to the page and add new information and media, correct errors, or update the formatting.

Editing

Edit
Depending on whether you are logged in or not, you may receive a different editing experience:
Help:VisualEditor
Most anonymous and newer users will see the VisualEditor. It's an editing experience based around showing you an accurate visual representation of your changes.

Help:Classic editor

  • Other users will see the classic editor, including the older visual editing experience and basic source wikitext editing.
  • Quick tips
  • Once you are 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.

If you want to edit a page without clicking the "Edit" button, you can press E on your keyboard, and the page will automatically load the preferred editor.

Editing is not yet possible through the Fandom app or Community Apps.

Choosing an editor Logged in users can choose their default editor from a dropdown list in their user preferences (found here).
