===Linking to a header tab===
 +
Pages that are using the 'Header Tabs' extension use section headings to represent tabs. However, linking to section headings does not actually change tabs; a special syntax is required.[https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Header_Tabs#Linking_to_tabs]
 +
<nowiki>{{#switchtablink:Tab name|Link text|Page name}}</nowiki>
 +
This will create a link to the tab with the name "Tab name", and the text of the link will read "Link text". If you want the link to a point to a tab on another page, you can optionally add the third parameter, "Page name".

Welcome to QMRAwiki! We really appreciate your insights and contributions to this website. Anyone can freely browse QMRAwiki. To contribute to QMRAwiki, you must create an account. Click log in/create account (top left) and follow the easy steps. Send us an email camra@msu.edu with your user name, and we will then allow you to make edits.

It is easy to start editing wiki pages. Just click on the “edit” tab at the top of a wiki page, or if there are several sections on one page, you can click on the section-edit link to make edits on that section. Then it will bring you to a page which contains the editable wiki text of this current page. In this text box, you can type in text using the wiki markup language which will be illustrated in the following. You can add tables or upload images to the QMRAwiki as well.

Some pages cannot be edited directly. However, every page has a 'talk' (or 'discussion') page, which you can access by clicking the 'discussion' tab near the top. If you want to change a page but cannot edit it, please mention it the discussion page, and our staff editors will implement it.

QMRAwiki runs on MediaWiki software, just like Wikipedia. The full MediaWiki documentation will help you on QMRAwiki also. Wikipedia also has a very helpful quick reference for editing.
