 +====== Wiki Know How ======
 +[[http://​lifebushido.wikispaces.com/​Client%20Services|{{::​wiki_line.jpg?​nolink&​806}}]]\\ ​
 +====== What is a Wikispace? ======
 + A Wikispace, in simple terms, is a group of web pages with “edit” buttons on them. You can collaborate with anyone you choose on your wikispace. You may want a place to keep information about your organization,​ or to easily manage your team's schedules. Wikispaces is simple enough for anyone to use, but has enough sophistication so that you can be creative and get things done.\\ ​ If you are looking for more about what a wiki is, Common Craft has a simple and clear explanation. Take a look at their [[http://​www.commoncraft.com/​video-wikis-plain-english|video]].\\ \\ 
 +====== How do I edit a page? ======
 + Each editable page on Wikispaces has an "Edit This Page" button at the top of the page. Sometimes the button will look slightly different or be in a different place but it should always be easily recognized. Click on this button to bring up the page editor. The page editor allows you to add text and pictures to a page and to format that page.\\ ​

 +====== What is the difference between the "​visual"​ editor and "​text"​ editor? ======
 + The Wikispaces editor has a visual mode and a plain text mode. The visual editor lets you see the final look and feel of a page before you save it. It's just like using a word processor. The text editor allows you to edit the raw wikitext of a page. It's useful when you want to get under the hood and tinker. We support the visual editor in Internet Explorer 6 and 7, Firefox 1.5 and 2.0. If your browser does not support the visual editor we will automatically load the text editor for you.\\ ​ Click here to learn more about working in the [[help.text_editor|Text Editor]].\\ \\ 
 +====== How can I format text? ======
 + When you are in the Edit mode for a page, you will see options on the toolbar at the top of the page. You can bold, italicize, underline, and bullet text; format text in various headings; or add a horizontal line break to your page. You can also change the font, color, alignment, or size of your text. To learn more about this, see the [[help.editing#​advformatting|following section]].\\ ​
