Wiki Migration How To Guide
#1
Here is a quick tutorial on how to migrate wiki pages from the old wiki to the new. 

First, open up both wikis in your browser:

http://indeath.net/indeathwiki/

http://indeath.wikia.com


Of course, as soon as we start this process, a re-design of Wikia happened, and all the old buttons have changed, making it a bit harder to edit. BUT, follow the instructions below, and you should be fine.


EDITED: We'll start at the In Death Wikia site. On the front page, click on the "Wanted Pages" Button.

   

EDITED: Here you can click on any of the existing links that come up. These are links that go to pages on the Wiki that have not yet been created. Ignore any pages that say "Category:" or "Template:" Instead, pick a familiar name, title, word, etc. there are plenty to choose from. Just click on the link to create that page.

   

The edit page will come up. You want to go to the pull-down menu and choose "Source Editor."

   

Now to to the old wiki and search for the same page. Once you have that page up, click on "Edit"

   

Select all the text in the edit box and copy it.

   

Go to the Wikia page where you should have your source editor still open. Paste your text into the source editor.

Click "Apply changes" then click "Save."

That's it! If you want, you can go back to the "Wanted Pages" button and start again.

Let me know if you have any questions or problems. 

Thanks for your help, Everyone!
