At the top of the every GCwiki page you will find some useful tabs. These tabs relate to the page you are viewing. Some additional tabs are available only after you have logged in.


User Features

Note: When making changes to your preferences, always click save at the bottom of the page to ensure that the changes are saved.

Star (Favorites) Icon: By selecting the star tab, the page that you are visiting will be added to your Favourites.

Page Tabs (not logged in)




View Source: Takes you directly to the source code of the page where you may view the source.

Language toggle: Allows you to select your language preferences.

Wiki search bar: Search for pages by typing keywords into the Wiki search bar.

Edit Source: Takes you directly to the source code of the page where you may edit the source if you have access rights. 

Talk: The Talk tab will bring you to a page where you can create a new Talk post to share with the GCwiki community. 

More: This tab reveals a drop-down menu that allows you to access Watch and Move. 

Move: Using the move tab enables you to rename a page, moving all of its history to the new name. The old title will become a redirect page to the new title. 

Watch: When you select the Watch tab, the page that you are visiting will be added to your Watchlist, and you should receive notifications when any changes are made to it. 

Note: The page will not be moved if there is already a page at the new title, unless it is a redirect and has no past edit history. This means that you can rename a page back to where it was renamed from if you make a mistake, and you cannot overwrite an existing page.
