The first step in using wikiHow is to access the site's home webpage. Type the wikiHow address, wikiHow.com, into the URL field or search for wikiHow using a search engine.
Once the wikiHow page opens, type in the topic that you want to find more information about in the search box. Click the link that best describes the question to access the relevant article, and make sure to read the tips and warnings specified in the article. Users also have the option to edit a page for grammatical errors, add some information and revert vandalism.
If users have complete knowledge of a specific subject, they can also create an article on the subject. There are three article categories that users can contribute. The first category includes articles that the user generates the topic for from their own knowledge, while the second category includes articles on suggested topics. The third category includes any other writings that users wish to share.
Users can create an account to have their own customizable user and talk pages. To create an account, users need to be above the age of 13. For users below the age of 13, parents must fill out a COPPA form prior to registration.
