HUMN 4472 and NMAC 4460 Students,

As you have probably deduced by now, we cannot have our planned journals on Wikipedia. This is my fault, but no matter.

I have set up a support server for our journals, and each of you must move your journal from Wikipedia to this server (click Page, above left).

First, email me your desired username and email address (if it's not your MGA one). I will make you an account on this server, and a temporary password will be emailed to you. Once you receive it, login and verify your email address by clicking Preferences (top-right) and scrolling down to "Email confirmation." This is important.

Next, create your journal. Add your link to this page. You can create your journals right from the link you add.

Copy your journal from Wikipedia to its new home, then blank the page, put {{db-author}} as the only thing on the page, then save. This command tells the admins of Wikipedia to delete the page.

From now on, your journal lives on the new sever. This is the only thing that will change. Requirement 1 will still be written on Wikipedia.

I'm sorry for this trouble. Again, this is my fault, so I will not evaluate your first lesson's posts until after Sunday, September 1.

Please let me know if you have any questions. My thanks to everyone for his/her flexibility here. I hope everything else will be smoother. Oh, and since the Students server is new, not everything might work as expected. If something is broken, just let me know, and I'll fix it.

My citation references broke when I carried them over with my journal--how do I go about fixing that? Thanks! -MorganAtMGA (talk) 10:45, 26 August 2019 (EDT)

@MorganAtMGA: They look pretty good to me. (I've been installing our necessary templates, modules, and extensions.) —Grlucas (talk) 07:30, 27 August 2019 (EDT)

Link isnt red

My link is not red it is connected to another students journal. Daisja Butts I believe how do I go about fixing this? - De'Ja Sams

@D.Sams96: It seems as if you fixed it, no? (Always sign your talk posts with --~~~~.) —Grlucas (talk) 08:17, 31 August 2019 (EDT)
@Grlucas: My journal link was removed. What is the issue?—AmaniSensei (talk)
@AmaniSensei: I removed a couple of journals based on my final rolls. You should check your schedule. —Grlucas (talk) 16:08, 5 September 2019 (EDT)
@Grlucas: Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't you complete the forms to get me re-enrolled into your class? I went to the registrar's office. —AmaniSensei (talk)
@AmaniSensei: You should email me about this. —Grlucas (talk) 06:30, 9 September 2019 (EDT)

Amber Smith (not able to create journal or get the link)

I have not yet been able to figure this thing out. I have watched youtube videos and gone through the tutorial on this page and still have not been able to get to where I need to be with this wiki page.

@Ambersmith5: I have added you to the journals page under HUMN 4472. Click the red link to make your journal. —Grlucas (talk) 10:59, 3 September 2019 (EDT)

Links in posts and editing view

I can't seem to get the links to Wikipedia articles to work. They show up as a reference or just type out the website and I have to delete the post and start over. I also can't find the way to switch to visual editing which I find very helpful. I've tried looking in settings for a solution but I can't find it. What am I doing wrong? --Jkoplin1 (talk) 11:49, 8 September 2019 (EDT)Jkoplin1
