The next thing that you or your students are likely going to want to add to your Wiki is to attach some documents to some individual pages. A very common thing is to want to add an image to describe something that is been done inside of your Wiki page. In this example, we are going to go ahead and we are going to link to a file called experimentalDesign.jpg that is inside of your Chapter 11 Exercise files. This image represents a common image that your students may have access to, where they can work collaboratively in a classroom or a lab, to draw out their research project on a Chalkboard or Whiteboard. Then take a picture of that diagram, using either a digital camera or their cell phone. We can then upload this image as an attachment to our Wiki.
To do this, simply navigate to your Coral Group page that we have created earlier. Then click on the Attachments tab and then click on the Browse button. We'll then go to the Chapter 11. Exercise files folder and select experimentalDesign.jpg and click the Open button. We then simply click the File Upload button and the file is uploaded to our Wiki. To see what this looks like, click on the View tab and you will notice at the bottom of your page there is now a large link that says, "This page has Attachments." Clicking on that link, takes you to the Attachments page, where each of the attached documents that you have, would be displayed here. If you were to click on the link for experimentalDesign.jpg, your browser is going to attempt to download this file to your local computer so that you can view the document.
However, we would really like to have this image show up in line inside of our text. To do that, simply click the Cancel button, and knowing that clicking on this link will try and open that specific image, we can right-click or Ctrl-click on that link and then select, Copy Link location from the dropdown menu. We can then go over to the Edit tab, come down to the bottom of our text and hit Return, and now let's create a link to that specific file.
To do this, type in a left hand square bracket, and hit Command+V or Ctrl+V, to paste the URL that you have just copied to your computer's clipboard. Then type in a right hand square bracket, and let's preview our page. The image has been uploaded as an attachment and by copying the link to that specific file and then adding it as a link inside of or Wiki page, we are able to make the image display inline, inside of our page. Let's go ahead and save our changes by scrolling down to the bottom and clicking on the Save button. The next enhancement to our Wiki is to add links to outside websites.
