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.

Click 'Save page' button when you are finished copying and pasting.

Step 6

FINISHED!. . . almost. If you want to add pictures to your page, which is highly recommended, refer to the section below on adding pictures.


Common Editing Changes

Embolden Text

What it looks like What you type

You can italicize text by putting 2 apostrophes on each side.

3 apostrophes will embolden the text.

5 apostrophes will embolden and italicize the text.

4 apostrophes is not a particular function. It is just embolden 'text' in single quotes.

You can ''italicize text'' by putting 2 
apostrophes on each side. 

3 apostrophes will embolden '''the text'''. 

5 apostrophes will embolden and italicize 
'''''the text'''''.

4 apostrophes is not a particular function. 
It is just embolden ''''text'''' in single quotes.)

Section Headings

What it looks like What you type
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.

Bullets and Numbering

What it looks like What you type
  • Bulleted lists are easy to do:
    • Start every line with a star.
      • More stars indicate a deeper level.
* '''Bulleted lists''' are easy to do:
** Start every line with a star.
*** More stars indicate a deeper level.
  1. Numbered lists are:
    1. Very organized
    2. Easy to follow

A new line marks the end of the list.

  1. New numbering starts with 1.
# ''Numbered lists'' are:
## Very organized
## Easy to follow
A new line marks the end of the list.
# New numbering starts with 1.
A colon (:) indents a line or paragraph.

A newline starts a new paragraph.
Often used for discussion on talk pages.

We use 1 colon to indent once.
We use 2 colons to indent twice.
3 colons to indent 3 times, and so on.

Here's a link to the [[Ghana]](the Ghana homepage).

The weather in London is a page that doesn't exist yet, marked by a red link. You could create it by clicking on the link.

[[The weather in London]] is 
a page that doesn't exist
yet, marked by a red link.

You can link to a page section by its title:

If multiple sections have the same title, add a number. #Example section 3 goes to the third section named "Example section".


You can link to a page section by its title:

* [[List of cities by country#Morocco]].

If multiple sections have the same title, add
a number. [[#Example section 3]] goes to the

New page name is an external link that is renamed so that it is easier to discern what the page is. Make sure to leave a space inbetween the link and new page name.

[http://www.weather.com/ New page name] is an external 
link that is renamed so that it is easier to discern 
what the page is. Make sure to leave a space inbetween 
the link and new page name.

Adding Pictures

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.

Uploading 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 ]].

Creating a Picture 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.

The picture holder, "225 x 225 px" in a frame

Adding Files

1. Create a link on a page in edit mode in one of the following forms:

What it looks like What you type

File:File.jpg to use the full version of the file

File:File.png
alt text


to use a 200 pixel wide rendition in a box in the left margin with 'alt text' as description

Media:File.ogg for directly linking to the file without displaying the file


[[File:File.jpg]] to use the full version of the file 

[[File:File.png|200px|thumb|left|alt text]] to use a 
200 pixel wide rendition in a box in the left margin 
with 'alt text' as description 

[[Media:File.ogg]] for directly linking to the file 
without displaying the file 

2. 'Save page' after adding the link, which will appear in red. If it does not red, that means that the link to the file already exist, or at least that file name does.

3. Permitted file types: png, gif, jpg, jpeg, doc, xls, mpp, pdf, ppt, tiff, bmp, docx, xlsx, pptx, ps.
