Must admit I am having a little difficulty navigating between lessons and this page so I can follow instructions. Hopefully it will get a little easier.

You are doing, great. I suggest you develop your userpage (by filling in the headings) for a start and the rest will follow. --Nellie Deutsch 05:36, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Can you write your name on top and fill in the personal information box? Thank you.--Nellie Deutsch 05:36, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

My Reflection

Notes and Feedback from my Wiki Neighbours

All the following are in your tutorials, but I put them here for you as a kind of learning shortcut. Earlier posts on bottom, later ones on top.

  • Here is another tip. Uploading Pictures. You have a picture on your computer. You want to put it onto a page you are editing. Remember where it is and what it is called on your computer. On your page, in edit mode, you name the file by whatever name you want to call it. Do not use a generic name like "My_picture" or it will get easily mixed up on the WikiEd site. Best is to put your name in the file name you choose. Make sure the extension is one of the many Wiki can handle, like gif, png or jpg. Put it inside two sets of square brackets. At the beginning, type in the word image followed by a colon followed by your image file name. Then save and that puts your page into publishing mode, and you have a web page again. The image file name should appear in red, indicating that it has not been used already. Click on it and a new page will appear that has easy instructions abut uploading the file from your computer. Do it. The image gets its own page. When you see it, go to the bottom of that image page; click on your page name and there it will be.--Phil Bartle 13:19, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Another tip is to borrow from your Wiki neighbours. Browse around other User pages. If there is anything you like, just copy it and paste it in to your user page. Make any modification you need, and there you are. --Phil Bartle 03:15, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
  • If you have not seen it yet, I recommend that you look at the youtube video clip on Wikis. In WikiEd, as in the video, the most important buttons are edit and save. A third button, Link, is not quite the same on WikiEd. To make a sub page, in edit mode, you simply give it a name. put forward slashes around it, then two square brackets in front and after the result. When you save, the word will be in red. Click on it and it will tell you there is no such page. As soon as you start editing, the sub page is created. --Phil Bartle 03:05, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Hi Keri, Just a note to say welcome to WikiEducator. Your user page is coming along. I also have a 19 year old son! I also found it hard at first to understand the connections and successfully navigate to different pages. One thing I found that helped was having the tutorial open in one tab and my user page open in another. It did take awhile to get used to switching back and forth. Maybe that will help. Hope you are enjoying the workshop. Your WikiNeighbor, --Alison Snieckus 01:48, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
