Geography 350 Neighbourhood Project 99B January 2011

If you have not already created your own neighbourhood wiki page, take the following steps:

  • Make sure you have logged in to the UBC wiki using your CWL.
  • Select the 'edit' tab to the right of the "Neighbourhood Projects" heading below.
  • Add the title of your project below the 'Neighbourhood Projects' heading using the WYSIWYG editor.
To  create a link to the article, enclose it in double brackets, e.g.  [[]]  
This will create a new page for your wiki article and  automatically link to it. It is important that you provide the full URL,  including the course and term number.


  • Preview the page, and if you are happy with your title, save the page.
  • Next, click on the link you have just created. This should take you to the new wiki page.
  • Select the edit tab at the top of the new page. Begin working on your article and save your changes.
  • NOTE: You can use the 'discussion' feature with your group if you wish to discuss aspects of your project without including that information in the wiki article itself.

To edit a wiki page:

  • select the page you wish to edit from the links below.
  • select the 'edit' tab at the top of the page.
  • edit the wiki page, preview your changes and then save them.
