Before you Start

First Things First

  • You must be a registered user to contribute. The Quick Start page tells you how to register and log in.
  • Be aware that your contribution will be governed by the licenses Gnu Free Document Licence and Creative Commons. Click on the images in the Navigation Panel to read the details.
  • Use the Talk page to communicate with other contributors or get help.

Relevance

It should relate to KDE software, directly or indirectly. We define it like this:

Dialog-ok32.png For New Users - helping to get started
Dialog-ok32.png For Regular Users - learning about changes
Dialog-ok32.png For Advanced Users - but use sub-pages for this.
Edit-delete.png For Developers - Techbase is the place for that

Ways to Contribute

Hints and Tips

Some Preferences that will help -

  • If you don't have [edit] links against the sections, open your User Preferences (Personal Tools in the sidebar) then look for Editing and set Enable section editing via [edit] links
  • While you are in those settings, enable Show preview on first edit - while you are editing you can glance at the original display for reference
  • The default display is to show the preview first, with the edit box below. If you prefer the edit box at the top you can change that setting in the same place
