wikis: sandbox, links, mediacast, diagrams

You may have had a look at my previous post for creating your own wikis. Three more tricks in this post...

Morale : once you are in the swimming pool, the only way to survive is to swim...


SandBox

But now, you want to go further. May be the best for you is to use a sandbox. In wikis.sun.com, you have the opportunity to use the sandbox space:  I suggest that you create your own sharespace in sandbox, this way you are sure you can play without causing any collateral damages. 

 

Link to images or already existing files 

A very simple howto explaining how to prevent you from loading several times the same attachement in different shared space.

You have two possibilities to add a link to a previously loaded attachment or document (Thanks to Igor, original description here):

a) either put a link to an already existing space :

  • Go in edit mode of your share space and click the hyperlink iconhyperlink icon
  • In the hyperlink window, select or search the wikis space, or put the link to your attachmentLinkWindow

b) or put a link to your media files that you previously stored in mediacast.sun.com

So let's say that in a summary, either you put all your attachments in a wikis share space or in mediacast.sun.com, like a big depot, and then you make an hyperlink to it.
(To be honest, i was not aware of mediacast.sun.com.)

 

Diagrams 

Diagrams: with Confluence, you can also add diagrams. In Edit mode, just point your mouse to the upper right corner:diagrams

You can then create nice diagram. And we all know that a picture is worth a thousand words!
