Image Galleries

You can use the <gallery> tag to quickly create a nicely formatted image gallery. See here for an example.

No printable

If you don't want something to appear on the printable version of the page, use

<div class=noprint>This will appear on wiki but not on printable version</div>

This is useful to avoid printing banners or other things that may take up a lot of ink.

Google searching OpenWetWare

To do a google search of OpenWetWare, do one of the following

  1. Type your query followed by "site:openwetware.org" in any general google search box.
  2. Type your query in the search box on the left and click search. Scroll to the bottom of the search results page and you will find a google search box for OpenWetWare.

Better RecentChanges Viewing

Go to the preferences menu and go to the recent changes/stub dislplay section. Click Enhanced Recent Changes. This groups changes on the same page together. This provides better viewing of changes, especially when people (drew!) save many times while making changes. --Sri Kosuri 20:26, 18 Sep 2005 (EDT)

Special characters

in URLs use hex ASCII values with % in front (%5B == left square bracket)

in text use HTML character references/entities:

Targets

Bug 539: Allow images that link somewhere other than the image page. Use $wgAllowTargettedImages=true; in LocalSettings.php when available.
