Wikis based on the new Unified Community Platform (UCP) may look or behave differently to what is described below. See this page for more information on the new platform.
Editing on Fandom is as simple as clicking the "Edit" button on a page. Doing so will take you to an edit page where you can make changes to the page and add new information and media, correct errors, or update the formatting.
Depending on whether you are logged in or not, you may receive a different editing experience:
Other users will see the classic editor, including the older visual editing experience and basic source wikitext editing.
Once you are in an editor, you can use the available tools to quickly add and remove information, change the formatting, add new images and videos, update the page's layout, and much more! Once you're done making your changes, just click the "Save page" button to update the page.
If you want to edit a page without clicking the "Edit" button, you can press E on your keyboard, and the page will automatically load the preferred editor.
Editing is not yet possible through the Fandom app.

Additionally, the alternative editors can still be found under the Edit button dropdown - for example, you can still access the classic editor from the dropdown even if the VisualEditor is the default.
