LARGE TEXT

IMAGES

Use "Upload file" on left menu (must be logged in)

INSERT AN IMAGE: (OPTIONS): resize IF needed, set position, link to another page on click on image
[[Image:filename|<POSITION>|200px|link=OtherPage]]   POSITION: left, right, center

---(Force page to continue AFTER the image:)---
<BR CLEAR=ALL>

(Insert Other Files like PDF )-----

Media:SRD-05VDC-SL-C-Datasheet.pdf (link works AFTER publish)

                      • NOTE! LINKS do not work until you "Publish" the page !!! ********************************

See details on the Arduino site here: LINK TO EXTERNAL SITE

HERE LINK to EXTERNAL SITE "HERE" is desired text.

ArduinoPower Text you want to show Link to page in this Wiki, show the text you want


Anchors and Links

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Link#Manual_anchors

Example: [[YourDuinoEngStarter#INTRODUCTION| INTRODUCTION]]
[[<Page name on wiki>#<anchor name>|TEXT YOU WANT]]  NOTE: Every heading creates an automagic anchor name
NOTE!! The name of the Insert an image, (OPTIONS): resize IF needed, link to another page on click on imageHeading must have no funny characters, and have Underlines NOT SPACES.
Generic anchor: <span id="anchor_name">some text</span>. For a hidden anchor, omit the text. 
Reserved name [[#top]] always links to the top of a page.


( TABLES: use this start line in place of default: )-------
{| class="wikitable" style="color: #006699; border: 2px solid darkgray; <!-- Widths are % of the AVAILABLE SCREEN WIDTH  style="border-collapse:collapse"  -->


----( Editing the left Sidebar )------

https://arduinoinfo.mywikis.net/wiki/MediaWiki:Sidebar


(Inserting HTML)

HTML is not usually allowed as a security issue. We have a special tool to do it..

  • click (Special Pages) -> (Data and tools) -> (Secure HTML)
  • Enter "secret" as "jericho"
  • Paste source HTML
  • Click SUBMIT
  • Copy result HTML and paste in page in "edit source"

This will have a secret hash value in the beginning.

PROBLEMS:

- Word .DOC imports VERY badly...
