Our Google spreadsheet for organizing content for this wiki.

General style guide

  • each page answers a single question -- e.g. how do I find a list of Riverdale Google Calendars
    • it is not a catch-all for everything about a subject -- other question means another page
      • except for our Get help from Google page, which is a catch-all
  • each page starts with an {{abox}} and ends with a {{CategoryTemplate}}
  • inline images (for instructions) are now added in a very particular way, with a variation of this code:
#[[File:Interesting cal.png|thumbnail]]Select '''"interesting calendars"''' from the drop-down menu<br clear="all">
which gives you this:
  1. Interesting cal.png
    Select "interesting calendars" from the drop-down menu

See this example for a guide to our style.

Article Templates

{{abox}}
used on every Article to indicate authorship, currency, audience, etc.

Category Templates

Just ONE of these should be placed at the very bottom of an Article:

{{Calendaring}}
Adds Article to Category:Calendars and Scheduling, and inserts a list of other Articles in that Category.
{{SS}}
Adds Article to Category:Software and Services, and inserts a list of other Articles in that Category.
{{ClassTech}}
Adds Article to Category:Classroom technology and systems, and inserts a list of other Articles in that Category.
{{Communication}}
Adds Article to Category:Communication, and inserts a list of other Articles in that Category.
