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]]Here's a picture of what you should do<br clear="all">
which gives you this, including the open space before the next instruction:
Interesting cal.png
Here's a picture of what you should do
plus you can alter the size of the images by adding "|100px" (or another size) as follows:
[[File:Interesting cal.png|thumbnail|100px]]
to get this:
Interesting cal.png
Here's a tiny image. It's cheaper that way.

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. Choose its main category. Don't worry about listing a secondary/specific category.

{{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.
