Adding a how to to Appropedia[edit | edit source]

Video[edit | edit source]

Appropedia allows you to display (embed) videos hosted on Youtube or Vimeo. If you just wish to display a link, you can host it wherever you like.

If you uploaded your video to YouTube, you may embed the video directly on to any Appropedia page by using Template:Video. To insert this widget, use the following code:

{{Video|REPLACEWITHVIDEOID}}

If you uploaded your video to Vimeo, you may embed the video directly on to any Appropedia page by using the following code:

{{Video|REPLACEWITHVIDEOID|platform=Vimeo}}

These codes automatically will add the video to Category:Videos. In addition, include at least one of the categories below that best represents the video's content.

See also Help:Video.

Clear language[edit | edit source]

Appropedia greatly encourages language-neutral how-tos, i.e. how-tos that can be viewed and understood by those in any language. extremely clear line drawings and/or photographs can make this possible. Multilingual how-tos are also encouraged... actually how-tos, in general, are encouraged.
