How to Upload Papers to the Wiki

Step-by-Step Instructions for Uploading Drafts to the Wiki


  1. Click on the Class Roster page.
  2. Click on your individual Roster page.
  3. Click the Edit tab in the upper left corner of your Roster page.  You should now be able to make changes to your Roster page.
  4. Click the Images and Files tab in the Insert Links box on the right side of the wiki page.
  5. Click the Upload Files link directly under the Images and Files tab.
  6. The wiki will bring up a pop-up box so that you can select the file(s) you want to upload.  Using the pop-up box, navigate through your computer files until you locate the one you intend to upload.  To make this step easier, you may want to save your draft to your computer's Desktop before beginning this process.
  7. Select the file you want to upload, then click Select (for Mac computers) or Open (for PCs).
  8. PB Works will now upload your file to the wiki.  When the upload process is complete, your file will appear in the Insert Links box to the right of the page.  It should be the first file listed under the Upload Files link.
  9. On your Roster page, type the text that you will use to link this file.  Something along the lines of Project Two Rough Draft #1 would be appropriate.
  10. Highlight the text you just typed.
  11. Click on the Hyperlink icon in the toolbar under the page's title.  It's the one with the picture of the globe and what appears to be a linked chain.
  12. The wiki will pop up an Insert Link window.  For Link Type, choose PBworks File from the drop down menu.
  13. Open up the drop down menu next to File and locate the file you just uploaded.  Files will now be listed in alphabetical order rather than the order in which they were uploaded to the wiki.  To make finding your file easier, you may want to call it something like Muecke (i.e. your last name) Rough Draft.  Otherwise, we could end up with mass confusion when 23 students upload files entitled Rough Draft.
  14. Once you've selected your file, click okay.  Your text should now be blue and underlined, indicating it has been successfully hyperlinked.
  15. Click Save at the bottom of the wiki to update your Roster page.
  16. When your updated Roster page loads, click on the hyperlinked text you just created to make sure everything is working correctly.  If it is, clicking on the text should download a copy of the file you uploaded.
  17. Congratulate yourself on a job well done.
