Now that you have information on your page, it is no longer a "stub" article, or an article with very little information in it, so you can now remove the "stub template". You don't have to have the page 100% complete to do so.

You are welcome to take a photograph of your building or the inside of your center to add to your page. To place the image on your page do the following:

:#Add your image under the introduction statement by typing in the following code in Wikitext: <nowiki>[[Image:Name of your FHC.jpg|right|300px]]</nowiki>. This should place the image to the right of the Contents box. The "300px" restricts the size of the image so as to not push other things out of the way. You can change the number if you think the image needs to be enlarged or decreased in size.
:#At the bottom of the page, add '''<nowiki>{{FHC-expand}}</nowiki>''' under the "Additional helps" heading so future FHC directors will know how to link to this page.

How to Edit your FHC Wiki Page

Add details about your center

  1. Open Wiki in Mozilla Firefox.
  2. Click on Edit This Page at the top of your Family History Center page.
  3. Replace any instructions that are in parenthesis and italics with information about your family history center.
  4. Remove the headings that you will not be using on the page. You can always add the headings back in the future. To see what was there before, you can click on the "History" tab at the top and click on a date to view what the page looked like at that point in time.

Bullets, numbered lists and indents

These pages were created with the idea of having "section headings," with information about each topic under each section heading. Most of the sections already include bullets underneath, but some do not. To add information below a heading, put your cursor on the end of the row and hit enter. To add bullets, numbered lists, or indented paragraphs, you can use the number/bullet options in the toolbar above, or click on Wikitext and use the following code:

  1. Bullets. Type a * at the beginning of a line.
  2. Numbered lists. Type a # at the beginning of a line.
  3. Indented paragraphs. Type a : at the beginning of a line. if you want to indent two times, type::. You can also type: in front of * or # to indent bullets or numbered lists.
  4. Useful Wiki Code. For other useful wiki codes to spice up your FHC page see Help:Formatting

Placing Images

You are welcome to take a photograph of your building or the inside of your center to add to your page. To place the image on your page do the following:

  1. Submit the photograph to FamilySearch Wiki for approval. See Image for the process of getting approval of images and photographs.
  2. Check back in 48 hours to see if your image has been approved.
  3. Add your image under the introduction statement by typing in the following code in Wikitext: [[Image:Name of your FHC.jpg|right|300px]]. This should place the image to the right of the Contents box. The "300px" restricts the size of the image so as to not push other things out of the way. You can change the number if you think the image needs to be enlarged or decreased in size.

FHC Wiki Page Policies and Guidelines

LDS doctrinal information in the Research Wiki

LDS doctrinal information does not belong on the pages of this Wiki. The wiki audience is world-wide, to individuals of many faiths, who love genealogy for the sake of genealogy work and is not a place to put information about LDS doctrine. This includes PowerPoint presentations and other documents that may include doctrinal information in them.  See the Wiki Purpose and Appropriate Topics for more information.

Page sections are optional

Your wiki page was created with a number of sections already there. These are not required to include on every page, and there may be other sections that you feel are important for your center to have. You can delete the ones that aren't needed. Do a search for "Family History Center" to see examples of what other centers are doing on their FHC Wiki pages.

Link to your FHC from other pages

Add links to your center page from other pages that might relate to your center such as the city and county locality pages in the Wiki.

Long page? Create sub-pages

If you have a lot of information about your center to add to this page, you may want to break yours out into multiple pages. When you do so, you will want to create additional pages as "sub-pages." These pages begin with the same name of the main page, then include a "/", then the name of the sub-page.
Example
For example, to create a sub-page for "Center Contacts and Hours" you would create a new page in the Wiki titled "Blue Springs Missouri Family History Center/Center Contacts and Hours". Although that is a long title, it gives the benefit of grouping the different pages together in the search results, and if you ever need to change the name of the main page, the sub-pages would also change.

Linking many pages together
If you create multiple pages for your site, you can create a menu that will include links to all of the pages. It will then be included on each page. See the Logan Utah FamilySearch Library page for an example.
