Help:How to make a Project page

From Personal Science Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This wiki offers a couple of templates that help maintain a consistent style, categorization and automatic linking through semantic information. If you want a new page to be a Project page, the minimum information you need to add is the categorization as a project. All other templates are optional, though we strongly encourage using them to improve findability.

Using the visual editor to add project templates to a page[edit | edit source]

Depending on how you ended up on the page creation form the visual editor should already be the default. Otherwise, the visual editor can be found under the "Create" tab on the top right/middle of the page. A step-by-step guide of how to add all the right templates and information can be seen in the galleries below.

Adding the category[edit | edit source]

Adding the infobox[edit | edit source]

Adding the Project Queries[edit | edit source]

Adding further content[edit | edit source]

All other content can now be added and formatted as you wish. See the Cheatsheet from MediaWiki for formatting help.

Using the source code editor to add project templates to a page[edit | edit source]

  • Adding the projects category: [[Category:Projects]]
  • Adding the infobox: {{Project Infobox|Self researchers= |Related tools= |Related topics= }}
    • You can enter a list of people who worked in this project (after "Self researchers="), tool (after "Related tools="), and topic pages (after "Related topics="), separated by commas.
    • We recommend putting this at the top of your page article
  • Adding the footer queries: {{Project Queries}}
    • We recommend adding this at the bottom of the page

How to turn a page a project page if it already in a different category?[edit | edit source]

You can change the categorization of a page by removing any existing infobox/footer templates and category tags from a page and instead replace with (at least) the project category tag as specified above. This will put the page in the project category and remove it from the other categories.
