Codex Help - For Everyone

This is the right page if you are looking for help with the different aspects of Codex, and the underlying tool, Mediawiki. MediaWiki is an open source wiki engine licensed under the GNU General Public License. It is used by many websites, including this one. On these help pages, you will find both a user and an administrator guide for using MediaWiki.

Please read the Help For Readers Section for more help if you are a visitor to Codex, and want to use it to the fullest!

If you are an editor, please read the Codex Guidelines to understand how things work around here, and also read the Help For Editors section for help with editing pages. For specific information on the editing format for the Codex, see Help:Editing.

The MediaWiki User's Guide is a general-purpose guide designed to help you with the technical and practical details. Some of the useful help pages are linked below:
