Posting Rules for OpenTutorial
Name the page with the assumption of "How to" in front of the title do NOT use the phrase "How to" in the title
"Change a Tire" is GOOD
"How to Change a Tire" is BAD
"Tire Changing" is BAD
On the very first line repeat the page title in a level 2 heading with the words "How to" in front, and/or an expanded description.
== How to Change a Tire == is GOOD
== How to Change an Automobile Tire == is GOOD
== Change a Tire == is BAD
This is for search engine optimization reasons.
Place Category links at the very bottom of the article.
Spend a little time to find the proper Category to put the article in See Special:Categories
If a proper category doesn't exist then make one, try to be organized about it.
At the bottom of your page just above the category links create a Glossary section in a level two heading.
It can be very distracting to read an article with a ton of links in the main text. That's why OpenTutorial has a policy of keeping excessive article links to a minimum by the use of a glossary, see Change a Tire for an example.
