Select Articles and Analyis Link[edit]

Select Articles and Analysis from here and it will open in a new tab so you can keep this page open to check


AA Additions.PNG


Select whichever media choice you wish to update from the top menu. For our example I have chosen openDemocracy.


You will notice just below the heading "About" there is a link to openDemocracy. If you select the link it will open the openDemocracy website in a new tab. you can check if there are any articles you wish to add. This applies to all the categories (Media Lens, Rebel Notes etc.).


If you find and article to add return to the wiki page and select the Edit option for the page you have selected (openDemocracy in our example). There is no hard and fast rule on what article should be selected. It is a judgement on whether it helps the campaigning effort. For example when I'm looking at Jonathan Cook I might only include one in ten of his articles as being appropriate to a campaigning wiki. Let's say for the sake of this example.


Scroll down the page and you will see some references enclosed in {{colon+Prefix+Sequential Number}} - see below


{{:OD0006}}
{{:OD0005}}
{{:OD0004}}
{{:OD0003}}
{{:OD0002}}
{{:OD0001}}


You need to add the next number in the sequence. So in the case here you will be adding {{:OD7}}. (If you are working on Disability News Service you would see the sequencing has a DNS prefix etc depending on the page).


Now your screen should look like this:


{{:OD0007}}
{{:OD0006}}
{{:OD0005}}
{{:OD0004}}
{{:OD0003}}
{{:OD0002}}
{{:OD0001}}


Save your work

Creating the page to add the new article to[edit]

Scroll down to the bottom of the wiki (this is the saved version) and you see this option:


AA Create Page.PNG


Add the sequence you added to the page earlier (without the {{}} and the colon), as below:


AA Create Page 2.PNG and then click the Create Page button


The resulting page will look like this:

Adding the information[edit]

Just suppose I selected this article to add:

AA Additions 02.PNG


Add the information from the article as shown below:

At the top of the page you are editing you will see the following line:

<seo title="open Democracy"/>[[File:OD Image3.png]][[File:OD Image2.png]]<onlyinclude>

Now copy the article title after the words "open Democracy:". Now the first line will now read like this:

<seo title="open Democracy:The enemy between us: how inequality erodes our mental health"/>[[File:OD Image3.png]][[File:OD Image2.png]]<onlyinclude>

  1. Also copy the Article title to articletitle like this --> articletitle = The enemy between us: how inequality erodes our mental health
  2. Copy the Article author to articleauthor like this --> articleauthor = Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson
  3. Copy the Article date to articledate like this --> articledate = 12 August 2018
  4. Copy the first two paragraphs (more if you think appropriate) to articletext like this --> articletext = When people are asked what matters most for their happiness and wellbeing, they tend to talk about the importance of their relationships with family, friends and colleagues. It is their intimate world, their personal networks that mean the most to them, rather than material goods, income or wealth.

Most people probably don’t think that broader, structural issues to do with politics and the economy have anything to do with their emotional health and wellbeing, but they do. We’ve known for a long time that inequality causes a wide range of health and social problems, including everything from reduced life expectancy and higher infant mortality to poor educational attainment, lower social mobility and increased levels of violence. Differences in these areas between more and less equal societies are large, and everyone is affected by them

  1. Copy the URL (link) to the article to articlelink like this --> articlelink = https://www.opendemocracy.net/transformation/kate-pickett-richard-wilkinson/enemy-between-us-how-inequality-erodes-our-mental-heal

Now your screen should look something like this:

{{Add Article
|articletitle =The enemy between us: how inequality erodes our mental health
|articleauthor =Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson
|articledate =12 August 2018
|articletext =When people are asked what matters most for their happiness and wellbeing, they tend to talk about the importance of their relationships with family, friends and colleagues.

The enemy between us: how inequality erodes our mental health

Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson - 12 August 2018

When people are asked what matters most for their happiness and wellbeing, they tend to talk about the importance of their relationships with family, friends and colleagues. It is their intimate world, their personal networks that mean the most to them, rather than material goods, income or wealth.
