Includes are mini-pages that can be added to signal certain situations that pertain to the page. While Tags are used primarily for navigation and to aid in searching, includes just make the reader aware of information regarding the status of a page, such as that a restaurant is no longer in business ("Departed Business"), that content is in the process of being added to the page ("Under Construction"), or that there is another LocalWiki that also has a page pertaining to the subject at hand ("Sac to Davis").
For some things, like "this entry needs work," you may wish to simply add a tag such as "needs work".
However, sometimes you just want to signal to the reader that a piece of information is important (like the fact that a restaurant is no longer in business). In this case, you would use an Include, plus a tag if you would like.
To create an include:
- Search the name of the sticker you want to create, click "create page"
- Create the image using the table function, some text and an image, or whatever you'd like. The image should stand out as different from the standard wiki text.
- Save the page
To add an include to another page:
- Open the edit view of the page you want to add a include to
- Click where you want to add the include
- Go to the edit toolbar and click the green puzzle piece, then click "Include Page"
- Type the title of the sticker page you just created, and un-check the box "Show Page Title"
- Click OK
- Save the page.
