Blog Template

From Spomenici - Partisan Memorials Wiki

General

This template can be used to make a page for a blog, column or essay for example to give personal impressions of events, or on specific topics.


For an example, see ....

Creating a page

Please create the page for your blog as a subpage of your user page, so people know it is associated with a certain person, and they can easily find it. You can make a link on the main page (for example, under the "History" chapter) to this subpage.

To create a page, you can either:

  • search for the name of the wanted page. If it doesn't exist (yet), the wiki will ask you if you want to create that page.
  • create a link with the name of the page somewhere, for example on your user page.

There (click "edit") you type:

[[Yournamehere/NameOfYourBlog]]

For example:

[[Knoken/Travel Blog]]

and save it. Click on the red link, and an empty page will open.

Using the "template" below

Templates are simply-looking forms with (sometimes quite extensive) code behind it to make getting info in more easy and to have some basic lay-out.

Once you have created the page, just copy everything in the box under "Syntax" and start filling it up. Or you can just copy those paragraphs which you think you'll need.


Notes

  • all the info given is optional. Fields left blank will either not show up, or with question marks
  • to use images:
    • upload some to the wiki, and
    • put the name of the image instead of the default "Default.jpg" in a template.
    • P.S. external links to images on other websites don't work, they show up as links and not as images.
  • to link to sites outside the wiki, use [www.LINK NAMEOFLINK]
    • to incorporate a direct link to for example the homebase on wikipedia.org, use [wikipedia.org/LINK NAME OF HOME]
    • to link to websites or forums, use [www.LINK NAMEOFLINK]


Syntax (copy & paste all to a new page)

<!-- This is a comment. It will not show up after you edit a page. -->

== The Story ==

<!-- Any text you want to write about anything. Be nice and keep it short & readably. Use lay-out such as headers and such. -->

=== Event XY, Date DD-MM-YY ===

==== Gallery ====
<!-- for other nice pictures. Don't overload it. You can also make different galleries (and use different headers)-->
<!-- if you want to add more than 4 images, copy the Image Row part again for every 4 pictures-->
