When viewing any page of GCpedia you’ll find three main navigation elements: the sidebar, tabs and, user options and tools.


The side bar is displayed on the left edge of the page, below the GCpedia logo. 

You can find some standard options such as Main Page, Random page and Upload a file. On some pages, at the top of the sidebar, a language option will appear allowing you to switch between a French and English page.

Clicking on the GCpedia site logo brings you back to the main page. The links in the navigation section just below will take you to important pages of the wiki.

Here is a description of each navigation link:
