This is the Ghana help page. It will give you instructions on how to add your project to the Project Bank, and also how to make formating changes to other pages. This page is a summary of the other help pages on this wiki.

Contents

Adding Your Project

Step 1

You should have three things open right now.

  1. Your web browser with this page in one tab.
  2. The Project Bank in another tab in the same web browser window. If you do not have the Project Bank open, hold the Control (Ctrl) key while you left click this.
  3. Your actual grant proposal or a summary of it formatted in the style below.

Step 2

Type the name you wish to give to your project in the box that contains the Ghana flag on the Project Bank page. Then click the 'Create or edit' button or press Enter.

After you have done this, a template form will appear will empty boxes. You are only required to fill in the following:

When finished, click the 'Save page' button at the bottom-left of the page.

Step 3

After you have clicked the 'Save page' button, a new page will appear with the information you added in Step 2 inside a box on the right side and blank space in the middle. This is where your project summary will be added.

Next, click 'Edit' at the top right-hand corner of this new page near the Search box.

Note: It is easier to add your project summary after you have created the page because the 'Free text' box, where you would otherwise add your project summary, at the bottom of the project template page is unadjustable which has a tendency to confuse people when they copy and paste their information.

Step 4

Copy and paste the information below into the editing window.

Section headings

Headings organize your writing into sections. The Wiki software can automatically generate a table of contents from them.

Subsection

Using more equals signs creates a subsection.

A smaller subsection

Don't skip levels, like from two to four equals signs.

Start with 2 equals signs not 1 because 1 creates H1 tags which should be reserved for page title.

In our new PeacecorpsWiki, we are not so worried about adding pictures which would make our site use too much storage space. The upload file in the toolbox on the left is where to initially upload a picture.

Once a picture is uploaded, the image is displayed by adding a link. An image link can have Type, Location, Size, and Caption information as elements. This information is seperated by | into what are called elements.

We will cover Type below. Location determins placement of the image on the page. Size is the displayed {width}px or {width}x{height}px, which scales the image to be no greater than the given width and height, keeping its aspect ratio. Caption is any element which cannot be identified as one of the above is assumed to be caption text.

Adding a picture

Adding a picture placeholder

Copy the code below (not in edit mode), then go to your page and in edit mode, paste the code where you want the picture.

 [[Image:A Picture.jpg]]

You will see a A Picture.jpg

You can send Chris an email with your picture, tell him where you want it and it will happen.

Format a picture

How did we add the box and text to our picture? thumb' / 'thumbnail' or 'frame'. Causes image to be displayed with specific formatting (see below).

Type


Example of a thumb

The picture holder, "225 x 225 px". The picture itself has a blue border and black text is on a white background

[[Image:A Picture.jpg|center|thumb|250px|The picture holder, "225 x 225 px". The picture itself has a blue border and black text is on a white background ]].

Here is a frame

[[Image:A Picture.jpg|center|frame|The picture holder, "225 x 225 px" in a frame]] Notice that since we have not told it a size, the frame defauts to 180 px, slighly smaller than the original.
