Adding a new city, dish or photo on the Wiki platform is actually quite simple. Please see the following instructions.


To add a new city

  • Go to the "All cities" page found here.
  • Type the name of the city in the box located under "Category:City" and hit "Add new city" to the right of the box.
  • You will be re-directed to a city creation template, at which time you can begin adding dishes (see how below) or just hit "Save page" at the bottom to save your new city first.


To add a new dish

  • Locate the city you wish to add your dish to ("All cities" page can be found here).
  • Hit the "Edit" tab at the top of the page.
  • Enter the name of your dish under the appropriate section (Appetizer, Main Course, etc) like so:
    *[[Dishname]]: quick dish description
  • Save the page by clicking "Save page" at the bottom of the page.

Now, when you look at the city page, you will see your new dish appear in red, meaning the page does not exist yet. Clicking on the red link will automatically open an article template, all you have to do is enter the text and save the page.


To edit an existing dish

  • Locate the dish you wish to edit.
  • Hit the "Edit" tab at the top of the page.
  • Edit the text and hit "Save page" at the bottom of the page.


To add a new photo

Note: to add photos you need to set up an account by following this link. PLEASE ONLY UPLOAD PHOTOS YOU OWN, ARE ALLOWED TO DISTRIBUTE OR ARE ALREADY LICENSED UNDER A CREATIVE COMMONS LICENSE.

Once you have an account setup and are logged in, a new link will show up on the left side menu called "Upload file".

  • Click on upload file and go to the upload form.
  • Select a photo from your computer to upload. Remember, the photo must be under 2MB in size.
  • Give the photo a new name to be used on MyCityCuisine.org or keep the current name.
  • You can add an optional description in the "Summary" field.
  • Select a license for your photo from the drop down list. If not licensed, you may choose the license you find most appropriate for your photo.
  • Give the photo author's name/nickname/email/homepage.
  • Mention the source of the photo. If own work, you can skip this field or write "Own work".
  • Hit "Upload File" at the bottom of the page.

Once you have uploaded your new photo and wish to use it, please follow these steps:

  • Locate the dish article you wish to use your photo for.
  • Hit the "Edit" tab at the top of the page.
  • Within the edit box, go to the bottom and find "Gallery"
  • Under "Gallery" you will see one or several lines saying "image:imagename.jpg", you need to add another line like so: "image:yourimagename.jpg"

Note: If the gallery does not currently have a photo and the first line says "image:noimage.jpg", you may replace it with your photo's name.
