Sandbox

If you want to try out certain things in a safe environment, you can use your personal "sandbox" to do so.

  1. Create a subpage of your user page.
  2. Add content to the subpage.

To do so, simply add a / (slash) in the URL on your user page and append your desired page name.

Info: Always substitute spaces in the URL with underscores, when you type directly in the browser's URL bar.

Example: http://tangowiki.org/wiki/User:Testuser/My_test_page.

You can also view this page under User:Testuser/My_test_page.

Theoretically, you can create infinite subpages, like http://tangowiki.org/wiki/User:Testuser/Test/Orchestra/D'Arienzo/recordings/view or the like.

What sandbox subpages are useful for

  • Testing template handling
  • Drafts/Stubs for articles
  • More detailled information about yourself
