Welcome to the American Girl Wiki's sandbox!
This page exists so that you can practice editing or formatting (see Editing help) without changing any serious content. Feel free to try wiki editing out here first.
There is a tutorial on the Central (coordinating) Wikia that will step you through more of the things you can do. Wiki allow for rather complicated formatting. It can look overwhelming when you begin, but don't let it worry you. Just start with the basics... enter some text, and learn the other pieces as you go. Your content contributions are welcome and important. The wiki is a collaborative effort and others can help with formatting and other improvements.
Best wishes!


This page is for any tests.

Welcome to the sandbox!

Anyone can edit this.

Simple Editing

To edit a page, click on the "edit" tab, usually near the top of the page. Then, edit the box in the page. Feel free to practice here, on this page. It's here just for you to practice.

A blank line indicates a paragraph separation.

You can link to another page by putting the name or title of that page in double square brackets. [[Main Page]] becomes Main Page.

Simple Formatting

Create headers by putting text in between repeated equal (=) signs. The more =, the lower level the heading is.

Create a bulleted list by starting each item with an asterisk (*)

  • It's ok to make editing mistakes
  • You can preview your work before saving it
  • Even after saving it, you or someone else can edit it again to make it even better

Formatting for Emphasis

Put single quote marks around words or phrases for formatting emphasis.

Two single quotes, like ''italics'' will create italics.

Three single quotes, like '''bold text''' will create bold text.

Other stuff...

If you know HTML or CSS formatting commands, they can also be used in this wiki. One useful HTML command is <br /> which creates a line break.

If you want to show what a command looks like, rather than actually implementing the command, surround it with the nowiki command.

Internal and External Linking

Internal linking: [[Addy Walker|Addy]] produces internal link (e.g Addy).

Internal linking (with parentheticals): [[Rebecca Rubin (doll)|]] (with a |) right after the title) strips the parenthetical words away and makes internal link (e.g Rebecca Rubin)

External linking:

[ The Making of an American Girl] produces external link The Making of an American Girl Only used for linking to off-wiki pages, not internal pages.

Wikipedia references: [[Wikipedia:Slavery in the United States|slavery in the US]] produces Wikipedia link slavery in the US. This can be used for many other wikis.
