This method of saving changes is clunky because it requires manual intervention for each save. It has the advantage of working on almost all desktop browsers, and many mobile browsers.

  1. Download an empty TiddlyWiki by clicking this button:

    If the button doesn't work save this link: https://tiddlywiki.com/empty.html

    Your browser may ask you to accept the download before it begins

  2. Locate the file you just downloaded
    • You may rename it, but be sure to keep the .html or .htm extension
  3. Open the file in your browser
  4. Try creating a new tiddler using the new tiddler button in the sidebar. Type some content for the tiddler, and click the ok button
  5. Save your changes by clicking the save changes button in the sidebar
  6. Your browser will download a new copy of the wiki incorporating your changes
  7. Locate the newly downloaded file and open it in your browser
  8. Verify that your changes have been saved correctly

Tip: most browsers have an option to prompt each time for the download location. This allows you to select the existing version of the file and replace it.
