Data System Profile Links/Upload, Navigation ... -- Marchouyoux 17:22, 29 January 2008 (EST)

For additional details about the EMF and NEI, I'd just like to provide on-the-self documents. Question: How do I upload such information? You said on the call it was at the "top of the page", but I don't see any link that is obviously setup to do this.

I can't tell from the navigation bar at left which link gets me back to the main page for the Summit. The "Main Page" link is what made sense to me, but this goes to a different page. Maybe there is nothing to be done about that.

If you have links to the "off-the-shelf" documentation in any of the text boxes you can add the links in any of the text boxes using this form [http://google.com text to show] and it looks like this text to show.

If you want to upload the documents click the link on the left sidebar under 'toolbox' for upload file. It will allow you to browse your computer and pick the file to upload. It will upload the file as Image:Filename.ext, copy this name. Then on your Data System form, paste into the textbox like this [[Image:Filename.ext|Text to show]] where you'd like the information to appear. If you aren't uploading an image you can switch the word Image: to Media: and it will directly open the file you are linking too.

Don't use the left sidebar for navigation - we have included backlinks at the top of the page from your profile it goes back to all profiles and then back to Data Summit Workspace. I will add another link to the profile, at least temporarily, that links directly back to the workspace.

You mention uploading "images", but is this wiki-speak for uploading files of any sort? Will it work to upload PDFs, Word files, PPS, etc?

Re: Re: Re: Data System Profile Links/Upload, Navigation ... -- Erinmr 17:26, 29 January 2008 (EST)

It will definitely work for PDF, Word, PPS may need to be PPT - but try as pps first.

Restructuring these pages after the data summit -- Davidmccabe 13:02, 20 February 2008 (EST)

I have renamed this page, and changed the links on the top. My goal is to make this inventory of AQ data tools, etc., stand on its own, so it is not simply a feature of the data summit. I've put a link to it from the main ESIP AQ page.

I can't change the links on the individual profile pages. I wonder if we want to leave them in the fixed format?

I am anxious to make this general. We heard a lot about this wiki at the summit. We need to polish this a bit to make it seem like a useful resource in general, not just a wholly-owned subsidiary exercise of the EPA Data Summit®. Perception matters!
