A New and Improved Real Estate Guide
Today’s Wiki Wednesday Feature: New Stuff!
As you may have heard, we just launched a host of new community features. We thought it only appropriate to take this Wiki Wednesday to let you know that we’ve added some cool — and helpful — functionality to the Zillow Real Estate Guide. We originally launched the Real Estate Guide (aka, the wiki) back in December, and since then, it has grown and grown and grown.
With the ever-increasing number of pages, it became clear that we needed search functionality to help everyone find what they’re looking for. And now we have it! You’ll now see a snazzy little search box in the upper left-hand corner of all pages in the Real Estate Guide. Just enter a search term, and you’ll be taken to a list of wiki pages that contain your search term. Before you create a new wiki article, please search for your article topic first and confirm that a similar article does not already exist. If it does, add to it! If it doesn’t, create a new article. Looking for a full list of wiki pages? You can still go to the A-Z list of pages for a complete list.
Another new wiki feature we’re excited to tell you about is image uploading. You can now add photos to any wiki page through a simple process. Just click “Edit this page” on any wiki page and click the “Insert Image” icon. This will then bring you to an image upload box. Upload your image, save the page, and your photo will be there for everyone to see. Take a look at this article to see what a wiki page looks like with photos.
Last but not least, we’ve also launched a “diff” feature which gives you the ability to compare two selected versions of any given wiki page and see what edits were made.
We hope you enjoy your new and improved Real Estate Guide!
