Fixed missing closed quote
==Introduction==
To make editing pages easier for everyone, we have installed a [https://help.bluespice.com/index.php/VisualEditor visual editor] by default.  This visual editor allows you to edit a wiki page much like you would a standard word processing document. Standard [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Editing MediaWiki editing] may also be used using the <nowiki>[[]] </nowiki> symbol on the edit tool bar or set as the default in your User Preferences.
 
To begin editing pages:
 
# First create an account and confirm your account through e-mail
# Once confirmed, click the 'pencil' icon on any section or the 'edit' link at the top of the page
# Use the visual editor toolbar to add links, change font formatting, set hierarchy of headings, insert tables and media
# Save the page periodically so you don't lose your work and to see how your changes looks as you edit
 
==Tips==
* For Spell Correction use Ctrl-Right-Click.  
* To insert a YouTube Video use an EmbedVideo command such as <nowiki> {{#ev:youtube|xxxxx}}
</nowiki>with xxxxx changed to the Video ID.  (Note: this may be inserted/deleted using the VisualEditor but it is necessary to switch to to [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Editing MediaWiki Text Edit mode editing] for modification)
* Files and Images may be uploaded as inserted or by using the Upload file page on the leftside Tools Menu.
* C Programs with [https://help.bluespice.com/index.php/CSyntaxHighlight syntax highlighting] can be inserted with tags:<nowiki> &lt;pre class="brush:c"&gt; &lt;/pre&gt;
</nowiki>
