This wiki website can be edited and updated by members of Leon Blaustein's lab only.

For experimenting with Wiki syntax, members may use the sandbox.

Adding/Editing Personal Pages

To add a personal page, go to the admin page, switch from the "Publications" tab to the "People" tab. Enter the full name of the new member (firstname lastname), and then click the "Add New Member" button. A form will appear to put in personal information.

To edit an existing personal page, go to that page, go to the "admin" menu on the top right corner, and click "edit page". This will take you to the same form you used to create the page.

Form fields

Title: This should be the full name of the member
Main Image: It is highly recommended to upload a small photo of you here. Please image files not larger than 100 Kb.
Caption: Short text to go below the main image (optional).
Position in lab: This is required. For style uniformity, please use the same format as previous members of similar positions used.
Upload cv: (optional) If you want it available to the public. Please use a descriptive filename to upload, e.g. "CV.pdf".
Description: Describe your research interests here, and you can feel free to put whatever else you want, including additional photos, text, tables and lists using wiki format. Below you can find help on wiki syntax.
Forthcoming Publications: (wiki format) Here you may want to list papers in preparation or under review. Accepted and in press papers should be added to the main publication list (see section below on that). The list of forthcoming publications will appear as the top papers on your publication list.
Previous Publications: Here you can list papers that were published before becoming a member in the lab, so they will appear below the papers that you publish as a member of Leon Blaustein's group. List these papers from newest to oldest.
Author Tag: Select a unique single-word tag (typically your surname) that will identify you as author on the group's publications that you are involved in (see explanation below, in the "adding publications" section). Remember after you complete the form and save it, to click the "Confirm Author Tag" button that appears at the bottom of your personal page. This is important! You only do this once when you first create your page. After confirming the tag, it should appear at the very end of the page in small blue font.
Additional Info: Here you can put in any additional information you like in wiki format, typically conference contributions, public media coverage of your work, interesting links, etc.
Status: This is by default "member". When you leave the lab, switch this to "alumn". This will remove your name from the list of lab members in the welcome page, and put it in the alumni page. For this to work properly, please complete the subsequent fields in the form that are only relevant for alumni.

Additional help on personal page editing

To display any photos or files in your wiki fields, you must first upload the files to your personal page. Only then you can link to them with the wiki syntax. To upload files to your personal page, go to your page, and click "Files" in the black bar at the bottom of the page. After files are uploaded, you can view the file list and click "info" to get the address to each file.

For an example of wiki syntax for different results, check out the personal pages of other members (but not Leon Blaustein's or Alan Templeton's, since their pages are based on a different template). You can click "edit page" to see the syntax within the form. Please do not make changes to the syntax, and do not save it when you're done viewing!

Adding/Editing Publications

Publications of this group are listed centrally in this page. Each publication includes one or more author tags that correspond to the unique group members' chosen author tags (see above section on creating personal pages). This allows the website to automatically display each paper only in the list of publications of its contributing authors, but not in that of other members. In addition, the 10 most recent papers by any member of the group are displayed in the welcome page under "recent publications". All the lists are ordered by date of creation of the entry, from newest to oldest. Therefore, make sure you add papers by the order you would like them to appear. It will not be possible to change the order other than deleting and re-entering the publications.

To add a new publication, go to the admin page, and click the "Add New Publication" on the "Publications" tab. A form will open to put in the info.
To edit an existing publication (e.g. to add a fulltext pdf, or to change status from in press to published), go to the group's central publication list and find the paper you want to edit. Click the "EDIT" link near that paper, and it'll take you to the paper's webpage. Then click "Edit Page" on the "admin" menu to open the edit form.

Form Fields:

Title: Please do not alter the default string in this field. It has no functionality anyway.
Reference: Paste here the full reference of the paper. For a professional, uniform website appearance, stick to a reference format consistent with that of existing publications.
Upload pdf: Here you may upload the fulltext pdf of the paper.
Link to Journal website: Here you may paste the URL to the paper's page at the journal website.
Member Tags: Enter the author tags of all the lab members (current or alumni) who are authors on this paper. The order does not matter. Separate multiple tags with spaces, and each tag but the first has to be preceded with a "+". For example: blaustein +sadeh. This is important! Remember after you complete the form and save it, to click the "Confirm Member Tags" button at the bottom of the new publication page. You only do this once when you first create the new publication. After confirming the tags, they should appear at the very end of the page in small blue font.
