From Conservapedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Hello, and welcome to Wikiproject:News. We are a project trying to improve both the "In the News" section and the "Previous Breaking News" articles by subject. The immediate purpose of the "Previous Breaking News" is to allow editors to review news articles they might have missed while away from the site. The ultimate purpose of the "Previous Breaking News" is to update the corresponding Conservapedia articles.

If you're an administrator, you can edit the news section. Here's how to do it:

  1. On the Main Page, there is an edit link to the right of "In the News".
  2. Click the edit link, and you will be editing "Template:Mainpageright (section)".
  3. Enter a post below where it says "PAGE CONTENT BEGINS BELOW THIS LINE".
  4. You can put a return and ---- to separate the posts.
  5. Add the news posting.
  6. Put something in the edit summary and click the preview button to see how it looks.
  7. Click "Save page" and view your addition on the Main Page.

Today in History

If you have a suggestion for "Today in History", post it here. Your article will be posted on the Main Page on the corresponding day.

Wanted Pages

This is a very important part of this project. Some of the news articles posted on the Main page need new articles created on Conservapedia. If you create a wanted page for a news article, it will be wikilinked on the Main Page.
