    Creating Wiki Pages within pages
    Hi Mark

    Pages within pages are easy - they just take a little time:
    I use a little bit of html code to create the individual student pages at the same time as I set up the page that has all the names on it.
    Here's how I do it, step by step:

    Create a page called Student Pages (do you know the code for creating a page and hyperlinking at the same time? If not - you use [ then type the name of page - then you put the end bracket on - ] (no spaces between the letters and the brackets)

    Once the Student Page is created, I then create a table, inside the table I use the bracket method to type the student's names. By using a bracket at the start and at the end the student's name is hyperlinked and the page is created at the same time. Does that make sense?

    Only members can edit this wiki (option set under Manage Wiki) - so all my students are members (you can get wikispaces to bulk add users for you or you can use a CSV file to do it yourself - it's very easy too. You can't set individual pages so that only individuals can alter them. We have a signed wiki contract by all, and we have discussions about making changes to people's personal pages - what's appropriate or not - and if someone does muck up someone else's page, I teach the students how to use the history tab to revert pages back to their original form. The general idea of a wiki is for it to be editable by many people though. I can honestly say that I haven't had any issues with others editing people's pages inappropriately - plus you can also track who has been editing pages too.

    I hope that answers your questions. Let me know if you need any else and thanks for checking us out! Unfortunately I'm no longer in Room 18 or at TIS anymore - so this wiki is gathering dust.

    Cheers

    Creating Wiki Pages within pages
    Hello,
    I really like your blog. I am curious to know how you have created your pages within pages? For example, when I click on student pages, I then can click on a students page within that page. Also, how can you control the pages so that only "Aaron" (for example) can only edit Aaron's page?

    Its getting tricky!

    Hope you can help!

    Cheers
    Mark

    Your speech
    Hey Amber
    I enjoyed reading your speech - I'm so glad that you posted onto your wiki - that's really great!

    Remember that everyone knows you are doing a speech and if you tell them what you are going to be talking about - you don't leave any surprises! Can you think of a better introduction, rather than just saying what it is you will be talking about?

    I wish that I could be there to hear all your speeches. I am missing you all and I do hope that you (yes you) are still reading a book at home. I didn't check that box back into the library - so it should still be in the classroom and you should at least be on to your 3rd or 4th book by now.

    Take care,
