Formatting my first contributionEdit

Hi. So I've just done my first review of a cafe and I'm trying to work out how to make the name of the cafe, bold and do the margins so they match the style of the rest of the page. Anyone help?

       I'm sure this must've been answered somewhere else but I can't find it.

Hi Onceweretrees, easiest is to click on the "Add listing" button. Then you get a mask where you can fill in all the details. Cheers, --Renek78 (talk) 08:46, 7 September 2019 (UTC)
Yep, you will need to use the listing template. Just putting in "name=" won't do anything, as you've probably found out by now. Either do as Renek78 advises (easiest way on desktop), or copy and paste another listing, replacing each field with details of the café you're adding (easiest way on mobile). Let us know if you get stuck. Welcome to Wikivoyage! --ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 11:10, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

Annyeong and welcome! Wikivoyage:How to re-use Wikivoyage guides can give you some useful advice to get started. If you have questions related to code and such, I think User:Traveler100, User:RolandUnger, User:Matroc and can help you (or they can point you to someone who does). --Ypsilon (talk) 09:38, 6 December 2019 (UTC)


How do I send an Email here?--Dthomsen8 (talk) 03:22, 13 December 2019 (UTC)

Go to the home page of the user you want to contact, and look on the left hand panel for "Email this user". Ground Zero (talk) 03:47, 13 December 2019 (UTC)
This can only be done on desktop mode.--ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 07:51, 13 December 2019 (UTC)
And only for users who have enabled receiving mail from other users, and only from users who have done the same, if I remember correctly. Register your e-mail, enable getting e-mail (you have done that, but somebody else might not) and find the link in the panel of your user page. Then you know where to look for it and immediately see if it is absent for some user. --LPfi (talk) 08:19, 13 December 2019 (UTC)
