     1= Howto guide to cinemaofindia.org = 
     2 
     3The website uses a Wiki structure which means that people can add/ edit or change the content. The Wiki essentially works on the principle of internal linking which means that any entry that is created can be linked internally with the use of a simple square bracket command. 
     4 
     5If you register as a user you may start adding or editing  entries 
     6 
     7For instance if there is an entry for Awara then any place you find a reference if you place it within brackets it automatically links to the page Awara 
     8 
     9{{{ 
     10[[Awara]] 
     11}}} 
     12 
     13 
     14== Structure == 
     15 
     16On the home page you will find a list of categories such as Chronicle, Films, Directors, Actors, Studios, Producers etc. 
     17 
     18Whenever you create a new entry you can classify it under one of these by simply placing a link at the bottom of your entry to one of them 
     19 
     20For instance if you create an entry for  
     21 
     22Omkara, then at the bottom of the page you add {{{[[Films]]}}} and it will be added to the list of films 
     23 
     24You may place as many categories as you want  
     25 
     26For Vishal Bharadwaj for instance you could place him under  
     27 
     28{{{ 
     29[[Director]] 
     30[[Music]] 
     31[[Writer]] 
     32}}} 
     33 
     34 
     35== 1. How to create a new entry == 
     36 
     37On the address bar cinemaofindia.org/wiki just add the name of an entry you want to make. For instance if you want to create an entry for Helen you add 
     38 
     39{{{ 
     40cinemaofindia.org/wiki/Helen 
     41}}} 
     42 
     43You will get a prompt which says 
     44 
     45The page Helen does not exist. You can create it here. 
     46Click on Create this page and a new page for Helen will be created which you can then start adding content  
     47 
     48 
     49== 2. Editing and existing entry == 
     50 
     51There is a complete list of commands that may be used here 
     52 
     53http://cinemaofindia.org/wiki/WikiFormatting 
     54 
     55Once you go to a page you may start editing the page 
     56 
     57 
     58 
     59== 3. Adding a picture == 
     60 
     61To add a picture to the Wiki you need to do the following 
     62 
     63a. At the bottom of any page you will find an option which says '''Attach File''' 
     64b. Click on this and attach a picture in .jpg format not exceeding 2 MB. For instance you have added a picture of Nargis 
     65c. Then in the content section use the following command {{{[[Image(Nargis.jpg)]]}}} 
     66d. Please note that the name in the link should be the same a the file name that you have attached 
     67 
     68== 4. Embedding a youtube Video == 
     69 
     70Youtube uses a distinct file name for every video it hosts. A typical youtube video will have the following name 
     71 
     72http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHx2tPnkkYA 
     73 
     74The name of the video in this case is aHx2tPnkkYA 
     75 
     76To embed a youtube video just use the following command 
     77 
     78{{{ 
     79[[Embed(youtube=aHx2tPnkkYA)]] 
     80}}} 
     81 
     82Basically fill in the name of the youtube video after the equals sign 
     83 
     84 
     85 
     86== 5. Creating Footnotes == 
     87 
     88If you want to cite an article, use the create footnote command which s basically this 
     89 
     90{{{ 
     91[[FootNote( Content of the footnote comes here )]] 
     92}}} 
     93 
     94It will automatically be added 
     95 
     96 
     97== 6. Embedding a video from pad.ma == 
     98 
     99www.pad.ma is a public access digital archive which allows you to link to a particular section of a video 
     100 
     101On pad.ma you can choose a segment of a video by marking an in and an out point (Use the editor view) 
     102

     104 
     105{{{ 
     106<iframe width="640" height="360" src="https://pad.ma/CGF/embed?in=0.000&out=261.000&view=player" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> 
     107}}} 
     108 
     109You need to copy a segment of the address namely the portion within quotes 
     110https://pad.ma/CGF/embed?in=0.000&out=261.000&view=player 
     111 
     112and add it to the following command 
     113 
     114{{{ 
     115[[Embed(iframe=Add the segment you have copied here)]] 
     116}}} 
     117
