Let's set up a wiki using PBworks




Log in to your website.


We will start off by looking at your account and security settings.


      Go to account and edit each of the tabs.   


Now go to Settings





     Note:  Some options are not available with the Basic version.


     1.  Change the colors.





     2.  Add users, classroom accounts.

     Decide on your workspace security - private, by invite only, public. 

     Note that you can set individual security settings on pages and folders.

     (only on premium version.)

     3.  Decide on your notifications and how often.




     Customization gives you the ability to remove certain items from the site eg. PBWorks footer at the bottom of the page.  (premium version only)


Now go back to Pages and Files.   Remove unnecessary pages and templates.


Go back to "Wiki" and the FrontPage.


Let's create a page and entitle it My Practice Page.  Go to Create a page.      Name the page and select the Save button.

Now add the link to the SideBar.


Click on the link "My Practice Page" and let's edit the page. 


1.  Add the title.  "My Favourite Links".  Format the text with the various options from the tool bar.


2.  Type:  "An example of a search engine other than Google is Ask Jeeves for Kids. "


3.  Add Links to the previously typed text by selecting the text and using the Add Link button.


- http://www.google.com and http://www.askkids.com/



     Note that there are several link options.











4.  Let's add an image.  Open another browser window (in Firefox go to File | New Window. Go to http://search.creativecommons.org/.  This is a search engine that will search for copyright free images in various services.  Do a search for an image, check the copyright, right click on the image and save to your desktop.

Go to Images and files | Upload files.  Browse to the location of your file and Select the file. 



The file will then appear in the column.  Click on the file name to insert the image.  To insert other files such as pdf files from your computer, follow the same instructions.
