1 Making a New Entry

- Log in

- Select 'add an entry'

- You'll be promted for a 'page name' - this will be the heading of the entry or page title.

If your entry is about Apple, create the page name Apple. If this page has already been created, you will be taken to it. If not, you'll be presented with a clear text box.

- In this box you can add a date to include your entry in the timeline. To do this write the year within two brackets and a colon such as [ 1 8 7 6 (June) : ]

You must include the @ and : symbols, although the (month) is optional. After the date write what you'd like to about this subject.

2 Creating a Date / Comment in an Exisiting Entry

- Log in

- Go to the entry that requires the link

- Add your entry (remembering to start it with a date to include it in the timeline). When you have submitted it it will look like this:


Comment submitted by exampleuser

Hello, Mum!


3 Creating links in Your Entry

- Log in

- Create an entry (see above, Making a New Entry)

- Tag the word you wish to become a link like this: 'Apple launch [ iTunes : ] (without the spaces!)'. When you submit this, a question mark will appear next to the tagged word (unless it is already an existing page - in this case it will appear as a link). Click on the question mark, and you will be taken to a new page with this word as the title.

4 Add an image

- Log in

- Create a new entry. Before submitting your comment or date, click 'Edit images for this page'.

- Use 'browse to select the required image from your PC', and upload it. Where the image appears on the pagr in vertical pipes (eg [image.gif]) is where your image will be seen.

5 Permissions

All pages require you to be logged in before you can change them, but there are pages you can't change (these pages are reserved so only the authors, and the 1010 site admins, may change them). If you see something offensive or grossly inaccurate on these pages, contact the 1010 site admins.

6 The Timeline

You may note that the New Media Timeline page does not allow you to edit it. This page is automatically generated from all the other pages on the site.

This means that if you want to add an event to the timeline, describe the event on any suitable page using the special markup described below, and it will automatically be added to the timeline in the appropriate place.

7 1010 Markup

To help you produce nice-looking formatted pages, and to integrate these pages with the 1010 timeline, certain sequences of punctuation are treated in a special way. For example, if you write

    I must emphasise this bit

then when you come to preview the page, you will see

I must emphasise this bit

You can make a paragraph break simply by leaving a blank line.
Roses are red,

And violets are blue

To refer to another page in the Wiki, just enter the name with the words run together, but the capital letters preserved - the name will become a hyperlink.

  • Item one

    • Item two point one
