"I" iconThis page is meant as a quick reference for editors that mostly know how to edit wikis in general and Wowpedia in particular, but need to check up on one of those pesky little things that they don't quite do often enough to remember by heart. In particular, it will NOT cover things mentioned in Help:Editing.
Tip of the day: When making an item page, you can use {{itemtip}} to create an in-game styled tooltip for them.     [ View all ]
