  1. Once you have the basic outline in place (say a single artist, 2-4 albums) try and locate a Biography on the artist for inclusion on the artist's wiki page.
  2. Preview your additions, and open the link to the artist's page and add biography
  3. To add discography you need to do as follows:

  • Label: [Label]
  • Track Listing
  1. Track One
  2. Track Two
  3. Track Three

[[Image:albumone.jpg|thumb|AlbumOne]]
*Released: 1999
*Tracks: 20
*Label: [[http://www.label.com Label]]

  1. You need to be sure you uploaded the image properly and call it by the right name.
  2. Back on the Genre page where you're adding your artist heading and your album subheadings make sure your albums have proper headings on the artist page so that your links as follows will work:
Link to artist: [[Artist Name|Artist Name]
Link to album: [[Artist Name#AlbumOne|AlbumOne]

Make sense? Be sure to properly comment your changes and always preview a few times before saving.
