(Send me a message) (User_talk:Titodutta) 23:58, 7 March 2012 (UTC) ::The tool tito linked is a really easy way to do exactly what the original poster was asking - check it out. It's one of my favorite tools ever. It's also linked from every 'view history' tab as 'revision history search' if you lose the link.

Along with WikiBlame, I'm a fan of Article Blamer at http: toolserver.org ~tparis blame - it has a nicer interface, and searches any given article for the edits which added the text you are looking for. There is also a Windows desktop application in WhodunitQuery (User:AmiDaniel WhodunitQuery), but I haven't tried that one, and these days I feel a bit more comfortable with an online application. - Bilby (User:Bilby) (talk (User talk:Bilby)) 00:19, 8 March 2012 (UTC) ::so I tried using the tool and it didn't work. I'm searching for the phrase "Indiana University" in Wikipedia_is_not_a_finished_project. It's not working. More generally, I'm trying to see if the math there is right.

I do think it would be pretty awesome if undergraduates were required to contribute to Wikipedia - are you familiar with the US Education program (WP:USEP)? We have quite a few undergrads required to contribute to Wikipedia currently and hopefully will have more in the future!

I'm going to be going to Purdue soon. Why is wiki mark-up so ugly? Wiki markup is a huge inconvenience. Why do we use it? It's not like we couldn't have simple buttons instead of having to refer to the cheatsheet for wiki syntax. CurtisSV (User:CurtisSV) (talk (User talk:CurtisSV)) 22:50, 7 March 2012 (UTC) :Go here (Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-editing) and enable edit toolbar. Go here (Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-gadgets) and enable WikiEd. '''Or better explore preference pages yourself to find which are helpful for you.'''

Wiki markup is not that complicated, certainly not compared to other things, like raw html (which was thought simple for the day). But there are options coming to address your concern, such as the mw:Visual editor. You can try it out at mw:Special:VisualEditorSandbox. Oh, and be carful with poor tools such as WikiEd (aka: ''I Don't Like It''). Alarbus (User:Alarbus) (talk (User talk:Alarbus)) 01:06, 8 March 2012 (UTC) : Hey Curtis! Wiki markup may look a little daunting at first, but it's very simple. You can use the Wiki mark cheatsheet (Wikipedia:Cheatsheet) to have a quick little reference if you need help when editing. -- ''' Luke (User:LuK3) (Talk) (User_talk:LuK3)''' 01:31, 8 March 2012 (UTC) :::Not really.

Basically, it boils down to "it's complicated because it's so incredibly powerful." If you don't want a long answer, feel free to skip this. When you better understand how wiki syntax works, you'll understand how incredibly powerful wiki language is, and how easy (compared to other methods of creating the same thing) it is to create things like tables (which is a real pain in HTML), replicate content with templates, etc. For all the basic stuff, the edit toolbar that Tito Dutta linked to will help you do everything you want to do. For the complicated stuff, well, it's complicated because it's powerful. I hear you thinking, "But HTML editors like Dreamweaver and Front Page automate table creation, and Dreamweaver even has templates and they have a great WYSIWYG setup, why can't Wikipedia do something like that? Well, because they're installed on your harddrive and aren't being loaded by a webpage every time. Dreamweaver CS5 takes a whole gigabyte of hard drive space for the basic install -- to install everything takes up a lot more. The program is so huge because doing such amazing things is complicated. Wikipedia has to somehow compress all of that into a simple quick loading webpage which is then parsed by the server. That sort of space time saver is currently only possible with a rather complicated wiki language which extends the regular HTML language, although people have been trying for the past decade to create something like Dreamweaver in a browser. They believe they're close, but again wiki language is incredibly powerful so it's difficult. I know it doesn't seem very powerful, just complicated, but templates and parsers effectively had the potential to give us HTML5 effects back with original and recursive templates and parsers had the ability to make live objects which could move themselves around the screen. Wiki language can replicate vector image (vector graphics) qualities by resizing composite raster images (raster graphics) on the fly for those who have vision problems and need text and images magnified with. "So why didn't I see that several years ago and where are my flying aquarium fish on this website?" 1) Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a fancy MySpace dance floor, and 2) It's a big drain on the servers, 3) you probably have seen a number of complicated things and just not realized how complex they are, such as the ancestry chart for the famous Cleopatra (Cleopatra_VII#Ancestry). The software that runs Wikipedia is continually being optimized behind the scenes to support the large load placed on it by templates and parsers. That was the major focus of the last big update. I don't want to beat a dead horse, but it's complex because wiki language is as powerful as a moon rocket (Saturn V) -- and these complex tools are literally open to everyone to use (you don't even need an account). :) Banaticus (User:Banaticus) (talk (User talk:Banaticus)) 09:39, 9 March 2012 (UTC) Slideshow In Creole How can I create a slideshow of images in Wiki Mark up language? --Tito Dutta (User:Titodutta) (Send me a message) (User_talk:Titodutta) 20:25, 7 March 2012 (UTC) :Hello Tito! I'm a little confused on your question. I'm assuming you're asking to create a image gallery for a list of images to combine images. You can look at Wikipedia:Gallery tag for help creating a gallery. Basically, you can build off this example gallery: File:Wiki.png File:Wiki.png Captioned File:Wiki.png File:Wiki.png Links (Help:Contents Links) can be put in captions. File:Wiki.png File:Wiki.png Full MediaWiki syntax may now be used… Hope this helps! -- ''' Luke (User:LuK3) (Talk) (User_talk:LuK3)''' 01:35, 8 March 2012 (UTC) :You can't create a moving slideshow of images on Wikipedia, but you can create an animated GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) image. Most big 3rd party web editors can create one. A Google search will help you find some free programs to try out.

There are often to-do lists on these project pages; for WikiProject Computing, see Wikipedia:WikiProject Computing Tasks Expand stubs.
