TrueEarth video tutorials

For getting started or learning some advanced features, I hope you find these tutorials helpful. I've tried to keep them short and cover only one point at a time.
The first few videos are shown in an recommended watch order (starting with Introductions & getting familiar videos).

The next section of videos are "deep dives" into various topics of things you will most likely eventually need when editing a wiki article. These videos are split into two tables, one for the Visual editor and one for the Source editor. These videos are most helpful when you are working on a page and need some help getting familiar with certain topics, like building links. After you've masted building links, then continue to work on your wiki article. If you get stuck working on something else, come back and see if you can find a video on that topic.

As always, keep the wiki cheat sheet handy - there's lots of helpful resources there.

If you have any questions please see the Community support page or post your question on the True Earth wiki Telegram group
