JetsWiki Tools

There are several "tools" available to you as you make your entries in the JetsWiki more interesting. If you find other tools (called extensions) on the web that you think might be useful, let us know!

JetsWiki Templates

There are several "templates" (pre-made items) available for you to include in your wiki entires already. More will be added (pleaes feel free to do so!) as time goes by for sure. You can see all of the available templates by clicking here. Using templates is simple, just do the following:

{{Template:TEMPLATE_NAME}}

For example, if you add this to your post

{{Template:JN News}}

you will see the following:

Easy, right? ;)


Including Video into your wiki postings

Including YouTube videos

To include YouTube content into your wiki post, you will include the following:

<youtube v="aYouTubeId" />

where "aYouTubeId" is the value of "v" in the YouTube URL (web address).

For example, the URL (web address) of the NY Jets Draft Blunders video from YouTube is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZxNeFLuY98. To embed this video into the wiki post you would add the following to your wiki entry:

<youtube v="rZxNeFLuY98" />

which produces

<youtube v="rZxNeFLuY98" />


Including googlevideos

To embed Google Video content into your poat, you will include the following:

<googlevideo>docid</googlevideo>

where "docid" is the value of "docid" in the Google Video URL (web address).

For example, the ULR (web address) of the 2006 New York Jets Highlight Video from Google Video is http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=82610133133213491. To embed this video into the wiki post you would add the following to your wiki entry:

<googlevideo>82610133133213491</googlevideo>

which produces

<googlevideo>82610133133213491</googlevideo>


Adding RSS newsfeeds to your wiki entry

RSS is a format that allows for items from other websites to be dynamically included in another website (among other things - this is just the releveant one for us right now). To use RSS fees with your wiki post, you will include the following:

<rss>URLOfTheRSSFile|options</rss>

The recommended options to use for this feature are:

<rss>http://some_web_address|charset=UTF-8|short|max=5></rss>

The options you can use (with each option separated by a pipe ("|") are:

# charset=...             (The charset used by the feed. iconv is used to convert this.)
# short                   (Do not show the description text for each news item.)
# max=x                   (Shows x most recent headlines.)
# highlight= term1 term2  (The terms separated by a space are highlighted.)
# filter= term1 term2     (Show only rss items containing at least one of the terms.)
# reverse                 (display the rss items in reverse order.)
# title=x                 (display an alternative title instead of chanel name.)
# title = none            (dont display any title.)
# date                    (display the date and time stamp below the title.)

For example, the RSS Feed URL (web address) JetNation is http://jetnation.com/wp-rss2.php. To add JetNation's latest articles into the wiki post you would add the following to your wiki entry:

<rss>http://jetnation.com/wp-rss2.php|charset=UTF-8|short|max=5</rss>

which produces

JetNation.com
