| This page is a help or manual page for the ISFDB database. It describes standards or methods for entering or maintaining data in the ISFDB database, or otherwise working with the database. Other help pages may be found via the category below. To discuss what should go on this page, use the talk page.
If, after exploring the Help system, you still have a question, please visit the Help desk and let us know. We probably know the answer, but we need your help to know what we left out of the help pages.
If you are new to editing the ISFDB, please see Help:Getting Started.

If you are not logged in, the left navbar will display a link labelled "Log In". Clicking on this link will allow you to enter a username and password. If you then press "Submit", you will be logged in, if you entered valid account information. There is also a link to create a userid if you don't have one. Note that the ISFDB and the ISFDB Wiki have different user authentication, although the userid and password are the same for both, so you can be logged in on one of them but logged out on the other.
Note that both username and password are case sensitive, but the software forces the first character of the user name to uppercase.
