This is a guide that will help you understand how to edit the Dead Rising Wiki. We really advise you to read it. It will cover pretty much every thing important.

Getting StartedEdit

Before you rush off and try to create a new page, you should look at other pages that cover a similar topic to the one you're thinking about making. This will help you get a better understanding of the wiki's format, what templates you should use, and what category to put your page in.

Making A New PageEdit

Make sure to search before you make a new page. It's heartbreaking to have to delete a duplicate page someone put a lot of effort into. But if you do make a duplicate page that's probably what'll happen. Save yourself.. and us time by searching before starting a new page.

Learn About CategoriesEdit

Get to know what category you're going to need to use. If you're making a page for a weapon from the original Dead Rising, you will have to put it in the category "Dead Rising Weapons". This is just one example. We will cover categories in a moment.

Learn About InfoboxesEdit

See those nifty boxes to the right of pretty much every page? You will need to learn how to add these to your page to make the wiki look consistent. We will explain this more in a second.

CategoriesEdit

Categories make it easier for people to locate information. There are tons of categories for all kinds of stuff like: Weapons, Locations, and Characters.. just to name a few.
