Creating Links to Wiki Pages

  • Use a CamelCase word (a compound word where each word is capitalized), such as NewPage, which creates: NewPage.
  • Enclosing a word in brackets, such as [newpage], results in: newpage.

 

Note: If this page does not exist in the wiki, it will be created when a user clicks on it.

 

Creating Links to External Sites

  • Insert the link location (e.g. http://www.google.ca), and link name (e.g. Google) in a bracket and separate them with the bar symbol "|"

 

Example:

Adding [http://www.google.ca|Google] would create the link Google.

 

Creating Headers

  • Put exclamation marks (!) at the beginning of a line
  • More than one exclamation mark (!!, !!!, !!!!, etc.) will create sequentially smaller headings.

 

Example:

!Wiki Help will give you a large heading, while !!Creating a new Page makes to a smaller one. Both of these examples are used in this page.

 

Uploading Images

  • When you are editing a page, click on the "add images" link on the right hand bar.
  • Browse for the file on your computer, and then click "Upload"
  • The uploaded image should now be

 

Using Images

  • On the "add images" page (see above), find your uploaded image (below the "Upload" button), right click on it, and select "Copy Image Location" (Firefox), or "Copy Shortcut" (Internet Explorer)
  • When editing a page, paste the image location and surround it in brackets

 

Example:

Adding [http://volvocales.pbwiki.com/f/plate2.jpg] would result in the image being displayed.

 

  • Additionally, if you would like to add an image to the Volvocales pages, simply replace the text with image link in this code at the top of the page <IMG SRC="replace this text with image link" ALIGN=RIGHT>

 

Example:

Add <IMG SRC="http://volvocales.pbworks.com/f/plate2.jpg" ALIGN=RIGHT>
