How to add your introduction page

This information is repeated on the Introductions page.

If this is your first visit to this page when you click on your first name the wiki will tell you that the page does not exist and do you want to create it, select yes!

You will then be automatically put into the editor. Type some text and then select save and you will see the page as others will see it if they visit your page. You can then select edit and continue to work on your introduction. You can change the name of your page by editing the test in the Title box above the menu with the various edit options.

And you can also add a tag or two to your page which will show up on the site's tag cloud. If you want to use a short phrase, e.g. classroom management as a tag then you need to connect the two words, i.e. classroom_management. The tag software interprets a space as a separate tag.

Adding your email address is totally optional. If you need to share email addresses you can do it without putting it on here. If you are ok to pop it in here then simply replace the your_email_address text with your email address. When you edit this page you will see lines like this:

 || [[[Billy Bloggs | Billy]]] || [your_email_address email] || Skype || interest || Twitter ||

you need to replace the text: your_email_address with your actual email address. So, for example, if Billy's email is

 billy@bloggs.com

the line would look like this:

 || [[[Billy Bloggs | Billy]]] || [billy@bloggs.com email] || Skype || interest || Twitter ||

The text in single quotes

 [billy@bloggs.com email]

is the code needed to generate a link to the outside, in this case your email address.

When you save the page, you will notice that the word email has now become a link. For some computers clicking on that link will take you to your email software and automatically fill in the To: line. Or, you can simply copy the link (right click) and paste that into an email.

The main thing to remember is that you can't do any damage. The wiki keeps a history of pages. You can always go back to an earlier version or restore a deleted page if you manage to accidentally delete one.
