Edit a Wiki Page – Introduction

A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint iconWhen you create a new page it will most often be a wiki page. Here you can add text or links or insert images, videos etc. directly into the page or insert various kinds of web parts and customize them.

The wiki pages are coded in HTML, but Microsoft has also made it easy to customize them without using code. Content can be added with tools in the SharePoint ribbon, and if you add web parts you can edit themin a right panel. It is also easy to regret changes.

If you want to use HTML code, you should be aware that there are some restrictions in the use of CSS and JavaScript. Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, will demonstrate that in a later article. In the the demo below Peter only shows how to reach the HTML code. Instead he focuses on page customization with the SharePoint ribbon tools. 

This is what Peter shows in the demo:
  • How to open a page in edit mode.

  • How to check out a page while editing so that no one else can edit the same page.

  • How to Remove a web part.

  • How to enter and format text in a web part.

  • How to use Ctrl +Z and Ctrl + Y for undo and redo.

  • How to apply styles to text in a web part.

  • How to save the changes to the web part.
