Which pages can users edit?

Please note that much of the content of the Wiki pages is fed through from the CRIN website. This means that the text on these pages can not be edited directly. However, users can still comment on these pages by clicking on the 'discussion' tab in the top menu. Read more below.

How to comment on pages

Each page of the Wiki has an attendant 'discussion page'. To set up or participate in a discussion page, you must be a registered user. To create an account, go here.

To set up a discussion page, simply go to the page you want to discuss and click on 'discussion' in the top menu bar.

Ensure the page you are editing is in the 'rich text' format (if you can see lots of coding in the window you are editing, just click on 'Rich text editor' above the text box).

Enter a title for topic you want to discuss and add your question or comment.

Sign posts: Please sign your posts by clicking on the sign icon when you edit the page (this is the hand with the pen next to sum sign Σ). This will display your username and link to the information you posted in the form you filled in to create an account (this will only reveal your organisation, country and reasons for editing the Wiki).

Be concise in your posts: stick to the point and be as clear possible to ensure everybody understands your message.

Be polite: follow Children's Rights Wiki 'Code of Conduct' and refrain from using capital letters which are considered shouting.

Avoid repetition: Readers will be able to see all previous posts so there is no need to repeat content from previous posts.
