To add a picture onto the wiki, first, save a copy of the picture on your computer. Then, when editing the wiki page, click on Images and Links on the right hand side of the page. You need to browse for the picture on your computer and upload the picture so it shows up on the list of pictures. Once there, click in the editing screen where you want it placed - your cursor should be in the place you want it. Then click on the image from the list on the right and it should show up for you in the wiki. Make sure you save your changes to the wiki before you view it.

Larry Lueck said

emmett said

Sam, you need to change some stuff. You are giving away the story to much.

sadie said

Sadie you are giving to much information about the book you have to be careful not to give the
whole story away.

maddie said

Yeah Grace

maddie said

Mr.Lueck i think we should not put a series on the wiki we
we should just put one book instead because the whole series
might not always be about the same thing

Larry Lueck said

at 11:54 pm on Nov 21, 2008

I agree with you, Maddie. I think each book should have it's own entry.

emmett said

at 8:51 pm on Jan 5, 2009

Mr. Lueck, can I make my own page called the debate page where people can put down random questions like does light energy produce heat energy and then people can debate with other people on the Wiki.

Note:We can debate by using and writing comments.

We can make a folder called Student Folder and put the debate page in that folder.

Larry Lueck said

at 6:31 pm on Jan 7, 2009

I actually don't mind a page like that as long as the work is done regarding appropriate topics. Lets talk about it in class.

maddie said
