Existing Info

Edit

When you are logged in you will see for each section a "Edit" to the right, which lets you edit the specific section. If you want to edit the complete page, then click on "edit" on top of the page. Not all pages will have an edit, those sites are protected from editing.

Structure within a page

To get an overview over a page with lots of info, use the = to separate the sections. Click on EDIT on top of a page and see how it gets used for this site. Make sure to have the same amount of = before and after the headline of a section. The more = you use, the more the structure will get separated and the smaller the headline will be shown.

Listings

Stars will be used for a listing, see an example HERE. The 2007 results are listed with a blue square, which comes up if you use a star.

Pictures

Pictures Already Online

If you want to add a picture, which is already online on another site, simply copy the address and add it to the wiki text editor

Example:

Pictures On Your Computer

To upload pictures to the Wiki, use this link: http://www.kiteforum.com/wiki/index.php?title=Special:Upload

Search your computer for the file and select it, then copy the Destination filename. Click the picture icon above the text editor field and paste the file name into the bracelets.

Note:

  • name the file on your computer, don't use just the names given from the digital cameras, this can lead to problems with the upload
  • do not overwrite other file names, if it happens that the system detects that there is already a file existing with that same name
  • the file should not be bigger than 150 kb
  • the pictures in the gear section showing the gear should not be bigger than 400 pixel. If your uploaded picture is bigger than 400 pixel, use this code directly behind the file name, before the bracelets: |400px
  • the pictures for the how to section should not be bigger than 640 pixel. If your uploaded picture is bigger than 640 pixel, use this code directly behind the file name, before the bracelets: |640px
  • don't use the pixel code if smaller than the 400 or 640 pixel.
