The VisualEditor feature allows users to editan article quickly and easily. The editing interface will always reflect how the article will look when published.
Generally, if you are an anonymous user, or if you have set your preferences to allow it, the "Edit" button on an article page will start VisualEditor. Otherwise, the 'VisualEditor' option may be available in the Edit button's dropdown menu. Unlike the classic editor — sometimes called the Rich Text Editor (RTE) or Source Editor — VisualEditor does not reload the entire page in your browser: it simply turns the article area into an editor. The editing toolbar appears at the top of the article space, and the cursor appears at the beginning of the text.
