NetworkWeaver:WikiLesson:Social Networking Links

We're in alpha, (not done yet). Please help fix it up.




Why is this important?

Many NetworkWeavers have profiles on various social networking websites. We can link to our profiles on those sites, and find other NetworkWeavers that also use those sites. Please see also NetworkWeavers:SocialNetworking for instructions on how to identify yourself on those websites as a NetworkWeaver.

How do I do it? (in 10 easy steps)

  1. Copy this WikiText to your personal page, where ever you want this section to appear on the page. We recommend putting it somewhere below the badges, either immediately below the badges, or below your photos and contact information.
    ==[[NetworkWeaver:SocialNetworkingSites]] links==
  2. When you click Save page, you should see a section like this:

For example, if you'd like to display link to your profile, find and copy the part. If the site you want to link to isn't on our list, go ahead and add it to your page anyway. Someone will add it to our list when we see your link.

  4. Paste the site name your copied on your page in place of "WebsiteName". Your WikiText will now look like this:

  7. Paste your profile URL on your page, in place of http://AddressOfMyProfileOnThatWebsite. Your WikiText will now look like this:

    ==[[NetworkWeaver:SocialNetworkingSites]] links==
  8. Now when you click Save page, you should see:

  9. Done!
