A place for mountain news, a collaborative encyclopedia on mountain sport activities and even the environment, a collection of stories and texts,...
The management of articles and news is based on collaborative editing. The articles can thus be directly edited by the community, unless protected by the moderation team.
The articles may be encyclopaedic, allowing to complete the description of some guidebook documents (e.g. detailled geology of a massif, history of a summit, ...), or to describe the techniques and the gear for an activity. The articles can also be journey stories, or fictions.
Event announcements must be done in the appropriate forums.
You will mainly use the 4 tabs located on the top left of each document:
- the "View" tab allows you to visualize the document;
- the "Edit" tab permits you to modify the document;
- the "Versions" tab gives access to previous document versions and presents the differences between different revisions;
- the "Comments" tab allows you to add a comment to the document or to discuss the opportunity of some modifications.
Moreover, you can follow the last edits, filtered by type of document or for all documents together: use the RSS: last editions link in the left menu.
There are two types of articles:
- Collaborative articles: they can be modified by every user of camptocamp.org. This is especially useful so that encyclopaedic articles become richer and more complete, following the same model as Wikipedia.
- Personal articles: they can only be modified by their author. Use this e.g. for an article of the "story" category.
- encyclopedia: articles with broad and permanent information about mountains
- stories: Real or fiction stories and reports
- edito: other articles (current events...)
- website info: article on the camptocamp.org website
- association: article on the Camptocamp Association
Yes, you can! For example: articles/107005/en
Only pictures from the camptocamp.org album can be inserted in a aticle (or any other guidebook document). You thus need to upload the picture to the album first. In order to do this, use the "Add pictures to this page" link at the bottom of the article's page. You can also use a picture already present because it is associated to a summit, a route, an outing... What you need to do is associate the picture to the article by using the "Associated documents" section tool in the picture's page.
Once the image is available in the album, copy the "Picture" tag available in the picture's page. It will be displayed as a 200 pixels wide thumbnail, with a link to display it 800 pixels wide on dark background.
In all documents of the guidebook, among which articles, you can use tags similar to the forum BBcode tags. For detailed explanations of the text formatting and layouting, read this article.
Briefly, buttons allow you to easily insert these tags around the selected text. The tags work on all multiline fields. In the following examples, spaces have been inserted inside the tags to neutralize them. Remove them so they are parsed correctly.
[b ] bold text [/b] : bold text
[i ] italic text [/i] : italic text
[u ] underlined text [/u] : underlined text
- Forum or extern link (url button)
[url = web.address/with_or_without_http]Link text[/url] : Link text
- Internal link to guidebook documents (wl button)
A syntax similar to wikilinks (double brackets) is used.
Unlike Wikipedia, you cannot create an article by using a link inside a page: you have to use the Articles > Add menu.
[ [ name of document ] ] : create a link to the search of the specified name. If a single result is found, you are redirected to that document (e.g. [[Aiguille de Scolette]]). Avoid this, unless you want to give a link to a list of documents, because by providing the name of a summit, you will also retrieve all associated outings. Unique documents are sparse.
[ [ document id | link title ] ] : creates a link to a specific document by providing its id.
You can add some information, allowing a faster access:
[ [ summits/document id | link title ] ] : link to a summit
[ [ routes/document id | link title ] ] : link to a route
[ [ articles/document id | link title ] ] : link to an article
The principle is the same for other documents.
You can add the document's language:
[ [ articles/document id/en | link title ] ] : link to the engllish version of an article
If the language is not given, it is automatically chosen based on the availabel translations and user preferences. Favour such links, specifying the language is useful only in a few cases.
Most of the time, you will simply copy part of the address of a document, on the model "type/id".
