Additions:
- To edit pages, you need register once, and log in subsequently. I'll show you how to do so in class, or use this tutorial. [[mmorgan@bemidjistate.edu Email me]] (mmorgan at bemidjistate dot edu) for the registration code.
=== Creating New Pages ===
- To start a new page, start on a page you want to link from. Often, this will be your WikiName page.
- Double-click the page to start editing.
- Click where you want the link to the page to appear, and type in a page name.
- Note > Use WikiWords for page names - but don't use spaces in the title. MyNewPageMCM is a wiki word: it starts with a capital letter, followed by at least one lowercase letter, followed by at least one other capital letter. mynewpageMCM won't work. My New Page MCM - with spaces - won't work. Wikis are fussy about capitals.
- Store the page.
- Once you have stored the page, click the new link. You'll get a page saying your new page doesn't exist. Click to create the page.
- You can now edit your new page and link to it using the page link.
- You can move the link around on the page - add it to any page - but don't change the link name: that will break the link to the page.

You can link to or embed images in pages. The image has to be on the web, and you need to control access to it. Here's the general pattern for embedding an image in a page. The " " are essential. To insert this code, go into the edit mode to edit the page, and then click the Image icon in the editing bar.
""{{image url="paste the url to the image here" width="350px"}}""

The difficulty is getting the image url. How to do this differs by operating system: Windows and Mac, and different versions of Windows.

- Get to the image you want to embed on the wiki page. On FB, get to the actual full image page, not the image as it appears on your wall.
- Right click on the image. If you're lucky, you'll see a menu item such as Copy Image Location. On some Windows versions, you have to select Properties ... to get to the image location.
- Copy that location.
- Return to your wiki page and click where you want to embed the images.
- Click on the Image icon in the wiki toolbar (Looks like a tree.). It will paste in ""{{image url="url" title="text" alt="text"}}""
- Double-click to select the just the string "url" between the " ". Paste the image location between the " ".
- Check the url: The image location should end in .jpg .png, or .gif. If it doesn't, it's not an image. Try again.
- Adjust the width. Add //width="350px"// after alt="text", but before the closing }}. You can make it larger or smaller, but 500px is about the limit.
For more info, see the [[FormattingRules#hn_7._Images | FormattingRules]]
- Click the new WikiWord.
- This will bring up a new page asking if you want to create the page. Knock yourself out.
- WikWords must be unique. Create a generic page for your own work, give it a WikiWord title and append your initials. For instance, ExerciseOneMCM creates a unique page with a generic title.
=== Reading the Code ===
Like the way a page is formatted? Want to see how to embed an image? Go to the page you want to look at, go into edit mode by double-clicking the page or by clicking on the Edit button. Review the formatting. You can even copy and paste the formatting to your own page and then change the content.
=== Make Yourself Known ===
=== Security ===
=== Advice ===
- The FormattingRules has advanced editing instructions.
- Save often! You're saving to a server somewhere on the web and if the connection breaks, you can lose content.
