Cheat Sheet for Codes 

For embedding interactive elements, you need to use a widget called a MediaWiki. Below are the codes you need to embed a Prezi or SlideShare presentation, or YouTube video. You will enter the MediaWiki through the 'Show WikiTextEditor' (the link is right above this box). One great thing about a wiki is that you can borrow code from others. By following the 'edit' link on any page, you can go into the 'WikiTextEditor' to copy/paste the code for the page you are populating with information.

For Prezi: {{#Widget:Prezis| }}

  • After the line, and before the }} brackets, enter 'id=' followed by the unique the combination of letters/numbers.


For SlideShare: {{#widget:SlideShare | |width=425 |height=348 }}

  • In the empty space after SlideShare and before width, enter 'doc=' followed the unique combination of letters/numbers.


For YouTube: {{#Widget:Youtube|}}

  • After the line and before the }} brackets, enter 'id=' followed the unique combination of letters/numbers.

Categorizing Your Page

Use double brackets [[ ]]. Between them, type Category with a colon --> [[Category:]].

Additional Tips

  1. Shift+Return = one line spacing
  2. Return = double line spacing
  3. When wanting to list items using numbers (such as this list) make sure to click numbered bulleted option before typing; unlike MS Word, a wiki will not create a numbered list automatically.
