Edit this page to ask your question. I urge you to read first the USER GUIDE | for readers and | for editors.

Creating Pages

  1. How do I create a new page?
    • Easiest way is type a word in the search box (press go). If it's not there, you will be prompted to create a page. Click on create this page. Try searching for different spelling also (see spelling guide). If the entry was given with a number of different spellings, then you should still find a match. --SRajaDita 22:46, 7 August 2007 (CEST)
    • You can also create a new page (or article) by clicking on a word highlighted in red that has been linked in another article, that is put in [[double square brackets]]. See Palug Rayah or OKC word list or Kelabit.Net word list --SRajaDita 22:46, 7 August 2007 (CEST)

    • Linking to other pages or words in Wiktionary (english version), the syntax is [[Wiktionary:word]]
    • Linking to other pages or words in Wiktionary (malay version), the syntax is [[:Wiktionary:ms:word]]

    • Adding |Word as a suffix like [[Wikipedia:word|Word]] displays only the'Word' that follows the pipe (|).

Images and media

  1. How do I upload files?
    • Click on Upload file under the toolbox menu on the left.
    • Note that if a file with the same filename has already been uploaded, the file will be overwritten. Please prefix your files with your username so that you do not inadvertently overwrite other users' files. --SRajaDita 00:27, 8 August 2007 (CEST)
    • Please include a short summary to include details like when picture was taken, where, by whom, etc. Example: 'Picture of [[Menalan]] taken near Pa' Merariew in December 2005 by [[user:Lraja]]. --SRajaDita 00:27, 8 August 2007 (CEST)
