Creating Your Wiki Entry

Here are some steps and resources to help you create your page and have it appear on the index for this portal (right side) , so that it can be easily accessed by your peers and your instructor.

1. Login to the UBC Wiki

Click the CWL button on the top left of the page and login from there.

2. Create your User Page/Profile

Your user page is basically a profile page. Its purpose is to provide a space for you to let other UBC Wiki users know who you are and what your affiliation is with UBC. It can also be a space for testing and experimentation with wiki code or mark-up.

3. Claim Your Assignment Page

We have made it easy for you to create your assignment page right from here. Just click on the week that you are scheduled to present with the associated topic (from the list on the right) and see that you are on the Create Page edit screen (note that you will need to be logged in to the UBC Wiki in order to see this). Claim your page, by adding your name to the edit screen and hit SAVE at the bottom of the page. You can delete this later when you are ready to start writing your article.

4. Add Title and Headings

Some suggested headings to get you started are on the sample page that we have created. You will also need to add the [[Category: Language Documentation]] somewhere on your page so it can be organized as a resource for others to use. Note that the square brackets, caps and spelling are important. To make it easy, you can simply copy and paste all headings and code from the sample page to your page.


Following are some links to help documentation for some common things people need to do when creating a wiki entry.
