Instructions

Entering text

You may want to consult the MediaWiki site for detailed instructions on editing. It is fairly easy, however, to wing it. Here are some brief instructions. To start editing:

  1. Choose the page you want to edit. Click on the Edit link on the left (below Views).
  2. The editing interface will appear. You can type or tape text. Observe the syntax in the existing text and adopt it for your own use.

Adding a link

  1. Select Edit. Again, a complete manual is available on line.
  2. Type: [http://theURL mylink] results in linking the word "mylink" to the URL
  3. For example, to link this portal to the words "Ploidy Changes" you would type [http://www.polyploidy.org Ploidy Changes]
  4. Switch to normal view. The result is the following: Ploidy Changes


Starting a new page

  1. The easiest way to do it is to construct a link while editing. Suppose you want to make a new page entitled "Haploid education" from the Polyploidy page:
  2. While in the Education page select Edit
  3. Type: [[Haploid education]] where you want the link to the new page to appear
  4. Switch to normal view
  5. Click on the red link thus selecting the "Haploid education" page
  6. Select Edit and add text. Save. The page is created.

Adding references

  1. The site uses the extension ProcessCite. Instructions for using this extension are found here.
