## Day 1 - Getting Started

Groups registration, introduction discussion, video-wiki in plain English, wiki discussion, Navigating

## Day 2 - Learning Contract

Create account, survey, add name to user list,

## Day 3 - Formatting

### Using the toolbar

This word is bold and this word is italic.

### Using syntax

The syntax for bold and italic is ' (apostrophe)

This word is bold...html code also works for bolding bold This word is italic...html code also works for italics italic

The syntax for heading levels is = (equal signs) Level 1 Headings have only 1 equal sign Level 2 have 2, Level 3 have 3 etc...

### Starting a new line

1st line of text... pressing enter once will not have any effect on the text layout
to start a new line within a paragraph use the standard HTML code for a line break

### Starting a new paragraph

1st paragraph.....etc
(press enter twice and leave a blank line between the paragraphs)

2nd paragraph....

### Indenting

The syntax for indenting is : (colon)

level 1 indent
level 2 indent
level 3 indent

### Bulleted Lists

The syntax for bullet points is * (asterisks)

• 1st point
• 2nd point
• 2nd sub-point
• 3rd point

### Numbered Lists

The syntax for lists is # (hash)

1. 1st list item
2. 2nd list item

### More Wiki Codes

Standard HTML tags can be used for other common formatting tasks such as subscript H2O, superscript m3, underline, strikethrough etc

preformatted text such as this (eg: blue dotted box around the text in this example) is created by entering a space at the beginning
of the line

or by using the '''pre''' HTML tag

Block quotes can be created by using the blockquote html tag

here is my example quote

followed by more lines of text...

Lots of good stuff on this page: page colors, scroll boxes, TOC, font styles, emotions, etc.

#### Change page color with CSS

To change the color of your user page, simply add the following code, replacing the Capatilized text with the desired web colors: {| | style="background:BACKGROUND COLOR; color:TEXT COLOR" |}

#### Scroll boxes

To create a scrollbox, use the "overflow:auto" style code. Be sure to also specify a "height: nnpx", where nn is the height you want. Here's an example of one 150px tall:

• What is the meaning of life? And what does that question mean?
• Where is the line between life and non-life?
• Where does choice come from?
• Can emotion be programmed?
• Where do we feel?
• Why does art move us?
• What makes us want to be better, to have purpose?
• Who are you and what do you want?
• That is, who are you, really? The true you, deep inside.
• And what do you really want (but for whatever reason haven't committed to getting)?

#### Contents

__NOTOC__

To have the table of contents box float to the right, place the following line where you want the toc to appear:

{{TOCright}}

#### Font styles, sizes, colors

Font style - Lucida Handwriting and font size - 12pt

Font colour - rust red

#### Emoticons

Also called smileys, these emoticons are useful for adding emotional expression to text messages. Definitely not for use in articles, but suitable for enhancing messages on talk pages, especially user talk pages. They can also be used as menu icons and user page art.

## Day 4 - Advanced Pages

### Redirects

If you think people will search for the page using a different name or different spelling it is a good idea to set up a redirect page.

1. Start a new page with the name of the page to redirect from eg: User:jennyp
2. In this new page, type the redirect syntax and create internal to the page you want to direct people to eg: #REDIRECT User:jennip
• Note - the only way to get back to the page which has been redirected is to type in the page name eg: user:jennyp...this will "redirect" you to the correct page eg: user:jennip. At the top of the page you will see the redirection link - click on this to go to the redirected page.

### Move (rename) Pages

I read the info & clicked on the move tab to have a look. I thought I might rename My sandbox to My Sandbox (with a capital)...but as it actually moves the page & creates a redirect I didn't think I'd bother. I now know how to do if I need to but I will ensure I put a bit of thought into my page names before I create them in the future so hopefully it won't be necessary to move pages.

### Delete Pages

Users can't. Only systems operators can delete pages (sort of delete anyway) and undelete them. So that's all I need to know!

### Automatic Page Creation

Type the name for the new page in the box below and click "create new page" button

Remember to put a link to the page so you can find it again! Link to new page
