== Getting started ==
 As a new contributor, you may feel a little nervous by the size and scope of this project called '''Ayurwiki. Don't worry too much if you don't understand everything at first, as it is acceptable to use common sense as you go about editing. Ayurwiki allows you to create, revise, and edit articles. As Ayurwiki ' is a work in progress. Collaborative editing means that incomplete or poorly written first drafts So, you can evolve over time into excellent articles.   == Creating an Account == You do not have to log in just start contributing by making corrections to read Ayurwiki. Creating an account is free and has several benefits (for example, the ability to create existing pages, upload media and edit without one's IP address being visible to the public). To create an account in seconds, click Creating an account and fill out the few required fields. This will be logged, your account will be created, and you will be provided with a link back to this page.  == The Basic Contribution == Ayurwiki is in its beginning stage of editor's contribution. Ayurwiki encourages different to the table, whether it be: researching skills, technical expertise, writing prowess or tidbits of information, but most importantly a willingness to helpentries. Nobody owns articles, so if you see a problem that you can fix, do so. Everyone is encouraged You need not have to copyedit articles, add content and create new articles if they have knowledge about the topic at hand or are willing to do the necessary research to improve it.Although you should use a broad vocabulary of regular, non-technical terms, do not use words or expressions that many readers may not know. If an article is written in a highly technical manner, but the material permits a more understandable explanation, then editors are strongly encouraged to rewrite it.   == How to edit == Editing Ayurwiki pages is relatively simple. Classic editing through wiki markup (wikitext). Wiki markup editing is chosen by clicking the "Edit" tab at the top of a Ayurwiki entire page (or on a section-edit link). This will take you to a new page start with a text box containing the editable text of the page you were viewing. In this boxHowever, if you can type in the text that you want to add, using wiki markup to format the text and add other elements like images and tables. You should then press the Show preview button to review your contributions for find information missing about any errors. After adding text and images, at "specific [[Category:<category_name>Herbs|herb]]" the end of the content you should write on which category the information belongs to. This will help to filter the information file in a respective categories. When you have finished editing, write a short edit summary in the small field below the edit-box describing your changes before you press the Save page button. This will help others to understand the intention of your edit. To avoid accidentally leaving edit summaries blankor concept or vendor, you can select "Prompt me when entering start adding a blank edit summary" on the Editing tab of your personal preferences.  == Rename and Deletion == *Ayurwiki pages can be renamed by moving the page to a new title. This is done by clicking searching it on the Move tab ''search bar'' at the top right section of the page (you need to be registered and an 'autoconfirmed' user to be able to do this). Before you do so, please carefully review this checklist of things to consider before a page move*While almost anyone can edit and move articles, to keep things manageable, only administrators can delete them.  == Images, Sounds and Vedio == Images, sounds and videos enhance articles greatly. A file that is already hosted on Ayurwiki can be inserted with the basic code. ("Image:" can be substituted for "File:" with no change in effect; the choice between the two is purely a matter of editorial preference.) Using "thumb" generates a thumbnail of an image (the most common placement option), which is typically sized differently from If the original image. Several options can affect a thumbnail's placement and size, and there are other methods for placing images not in a thumbnail format, such as in a frame, table or "infobox", which this summary page does not delve into. Only logged in users can upload files under an appropriate title. The first step in uploading a file is to determine its copyright status. If a file is in the public domainexist, or bears a type of free copyright license compatible with the non-restrictive licenses we require for free reuse, then it can and should you'll be uploaded prompted to the Ayurwiki. If the image is non-free then it cannot be uploaded to the Ayurwikicreate a new page.
