Section breaks

Hello Gladys,

Question...How do I insert section breaks between headers? As you see here, text from one heading section is wrapping around a video from a different heading section. What I'd like to do is to create a "section break" that brings the text from Phases down below the video without having to insert a series of "<br />s".

Any suggestions?--Benjamin Stewart 19:32, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Hi Ben,

Two cool dividers are these HTML codes:

  1. <br style="clear:both;"/>
  2. <div style="clear:both;"></div>

The second one is more powerful, its a <div>, do you remember Mexico's page? :-) I've been colecting some HTML & CSS tips on this page, you might find them interesting.

Put any af them just one row before starting a new Section. This will clear any floating object (e.g. kaltura, image, <div>box, etc. with "left" or "right" parameter). I can make it, but I beleive you are skilled enough to try it yourself. :-)

Cheers. --Gladys Gahona 20:26, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Got it!! I remember you mentioning <div> from the Mexico page but I had forgotten the style attribute.

By the way, is there one place that discusses wiki syntax in depth? For example, I would never have guessed that I needed the attribute "style=clear:both" in order to generate a section break. The tutorials in WE seem to be more general and I didn´t see this as an example in wikimedi either. Is there a type of manual or a single site that digs deeper into wiki syntax specifically as it pertains to WE?

As always, appreciating your kind assistance, I am.--Benjamin Stewart 20:42, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

There is an initiative started by Randy, please see Advanced Users. I've been adding some ideas to the page. Perhaps we all can make things happen, hope we soon can run an "Advanced Users Wiki-skills Workshop" :-)

BTW. I'll add a title for HTML and CSS.

Saludos. --Gladys Gahona 21:28, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
