It provides task-oriented help how to achieve user's goals, application-oriented info to learn more about the applications and tips and tricks to make users' life easier and more pleasant. Information on UserBase should not require deep technical knowledge or being familiar with the community. Contributions by users are very welcome. For technical documentation use KDE TechBase.

You can log in or create your account on Special:UserLogin. If you have an OpenID account you can try to log in with it on Special:OpenIDLogin. When you are logged in, you will see an Edit tab at the top of all editable pages. Clicking on it takes you to the Editing page, where you can edit the content of your current page. Make changes The Edit text box contains the editable source text of a page, which lets you add new text and modify the content as needed. A quick reference to the basic wiki markup can be found on Cheatsheet. For a more comprehensive help on formatting, see Toolbox. To maintain high quality content, try to be concise, objective and keep the language professional. Please follow the style used in other wiki articles on UserBase for consistency. You can find guidelines for the layout in PageLayout. Additionally, following the Typographical Guidelines will make it easier to export the content for translation. Preview changes When you have finished, click Show preview to see how your changes will look before you save them permanently. Repeat the edit/preview process until you are satisfied. Save changes Before you save the page, write a short summary of the changes in the Summary box below the Edit box. Example: Fixed a typo If the changes are superficial, such as typo or formatting corrections, mark the edit as minor by checking This is a minor edit. Finally, press Save page to save the modified page. Your changes will immediately be reflected on the page. Talk pages Creating new pages Before creating a new page, you should have a user account on UserBase and be familiar with writing and editing articles. Please also consider the following: Is the page relevant to the purpose of UserBase? Irrelevant pages will be deleted Will the content be useful for other people? If it's only of interest to you, it belongs to your user page Does a similar page already exist? Do a quick search first to make sure a similar topic does not already exist. The procedure There are two ways to create a new page. The first is recommended for new contributors and/or if you want to work on it before making it "live". The second option is faster and mainly for more experienced contributors.
