The Wiki Archive:Archiving pages from a wiki

From The Wiki Archive
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Wiki Archive is a wiki dedicated to the preservation of articles deleted from all wikis. The best part is that you can help us archive! Here is how:

  1. Visit the candidates for deletion category on the wiki of your choice.
  2. Select the page you want to archive.
  3. Copy its name. You can do this by highlighting the name and pressing Ctrl+C at the same time.
  4. Open up a new tab and go to this wiki.
  5. Type the wiki's name and a colon after it into the search box. Do not use spaces. For example: "Wikipedia:" or "Wikipedia Draft:". Paste the page for archiving's name after it. Here is how it should look: "Wikipedia:Lipsum".
  6. If the page is archived on here already, go back to step 1 and choose a different page. If not, click the red link.
  7. Go back to the page for archiving on the wiki of your choice and click the Edit tab or button.
  8. Click in the edit field, press Ctrl+A to select the content, and then press Ctrl+C to copy it.
  9. If you clicked the red link after following step 5, you're on the right track! Now press Ctrl+V to paste the page's content in the edit box.
  10. Click Save.

Congratulations! You just archived a page!
