Media and formating

How to add an image? How to create a link? Which formating to use?

Register for events

For some of the events you have to make a reservation. This can be done on the event page itself by clicking on the Make reservation for this activity. You can find this button below the title of the event.

Registration

When you never registered before you have to register for the website first, otherwise, just log in. After this logon or registration you'll be automatically registered for the event.

Images, videos and documents

Add an image

You can click the camera icon to add an image to an article. Then click Browse... to select an image from your own computer. After you've chosen an image, click Add to place the image in the page.

Add an image

Using images from the internet

When adding an image from some other website you need the exact location (URL) of the image. Right click on the image and choose for View image and copy the location in the top of your browser. If it ends on .jpg, .png, .gif the change is high you have the correct image location.

Now click on More options (after clicking on the camera icon), enter the image location in the input field and click Add.

Add a video

You can use YouTube videos on your pages. You can get the required YouTube code on the website of YouTube. Then type a wikicode using [[youtube //code//]], replace code with the YouTube code. For example:

[[youtube nogDHP0gl9M]]

Add a document

Some pages allow you add a document to the page to add large pieces of text without creating long pages on the website.

Click on the +document button when editing a page. When there is no such button, this kind of page does not allow to add documents. Now you can select a document on your own computer and add this to the page.

Add a document

Links

Linking to other pages

To link to other pages in the website you need the unique page ID. This can be found in the URL of the page. It looks something like www.mediamatic.nl/page/30555/nl where the unique number is 30555.

Create the link using (( (double parentheses), followed by the number and a | (pipe), the text you want to show and closing the code again using )). For example:

((30555|Link to the help page))
Link to the help page

Links to other websites and email addresses

To create a link to another website use [[ (two square brackets), the URL of the website, a space, the text you want to display and close it with ]] again. For example:

[http://www.anymeta.net anyMeta]
anyMeta

You can link to email adresses by adding mailto: in front of the address, for example:

mailto:helpdesk@mediamatic.nl

Formating

Paragraphs

Split up your text in paragraphs makes it more readable. You can do this by adding subheads using ++ (two plus signs) before the subhead. For example: ++ Subhead
To make a smaller subhead use more plus signs.

Emphasis (bold- and italics)

You can emphasize pieces of text using bold and italics. Start and end the bold text with ** (two asterisks). Use // (two slashes) for italic text. For example:

text can be made **bold** and //italic//
text can be made bold and italic

Lists

You can easy create lists by typing an asterisk before each line creating a unordered list. For example:

* apples
* pears
* tomatoes

With this as a result

  • apples
  • pears
  • tomatoes

To indent list items add one or more spaces before the asterisk. Create ordered lists by replacing the asterisk with a # (hash).

Quoteblock

Create quoteblocks in the same way as in email. Type a > (right arrow) in front of each line. For example:

> This is a unknown quote. This is a long first sentence spanning multiple rows with only one arrow. Only after a new line a new arrow is needed.

This is a unknown quote. This is a long first sentence spanning multiple rows with only one arrow. Only after a new line a new arrow is needed.
