Step 3 - Practice editing in our Sandbox

Grand Theft Wiki has a Sandbox - this is a page you can play around with and test out editing without breaking anything.

To edit the sandbox:

  • Go to the Sandbox page
  • Click the 'Edit' button in the top-right
  • Type in some text
  • Click 'Preview Edited Page' - see if it shows up the way you expect
  • Click 'Publish this Edit' to save the page
  • Your edit is now visible on Grand Theft Wiki for all the world to see


Step 4 - Get going

You're now ready to start editing any page on Grand Theft Wiki!

Have a look around the wiki -

  • Start at Template:Gta, find some subjects you know about, and add in any
  • If there's a page we don't have, go to Help:Create to make it


Step 5 - Hone your skills

Once you've had some practice editing, it's time to learn some more advanced editing skills
