Basics

How do I create a new page?

There are several ways to create a new page:

  • Create a link to the page on another page, then click on the red link which appears
  • Browse to the intended location of the page, e.g. www.example.com/index.php?title=New_page and click on the edit link.

On some wikis, a failed search for a page will contain a link which allows you to edit that page.

Embedding Video

Usage The EmbedVideo parser function expects to be called in any of the following ways:

{{#ev:service|id}}
{{#ev:service|id|width}}
{{#ev:service|id|width|align}}
{{#ev:service|id|width|align|desc}}
{{#evp:service|id|desc}}
{{#evp:service|id|desc|align}}
{{#evp:service|id|desc|align|width}}

Where:


  • Service is the name of a video sharing service (See "service name" in the list below)
  • id is the id of the video to include
  • width (optional) is the width in pixels of the viewing area (height will be determined automatically)
  • align (optional) is an alignment (float) attribute. May be "left" or "right".
  • desc (optional) is a short description to display beneath the video when it is aligned.

For example, to include the famous "evolution of dance" YouTube video, you'd enter:

 {{#ev:youtube|dMH0bHeiRNg}} 

And if you wanted scaled down to thumbnail size, on the right with a short description, you could use:

 {{#ev:youtube|dMH0bHeiRNg|100|right|This is an embedded video!}}
