This is a general help page providing general navigation information, links and searching the online resources and tutorials in making contributions too this online site. Some of these pages are also available from the top and bottom menus on every page. Note the screenshots and some of the descriptions relate to the original lefthand menu that is now shown as a dropdown menu at the top of each page.

The original Embryology website grew organically over time (many years) and subsequently was sometimes difficult for students to find their way about, know where they were, and how to get back to main topic pages.
The new Wiki style site has been extensively restructured and updated to fix these issues, and more. While core information remains as before, but always up-to-date, hopefully it should be easier to find and take less clicking to get there!
- Have a specific topic you want to find on this site?
- At the top of every screen (shown by red highlight on the righthand image) is a search box or window.
- Type your topic of interest into the white space.
- Go will take you right to the article you typed in, if it exists.
- Search will look through the website for your entered topic and list pages and media that contain that topic. The results will be displayed on a new page beginning with "Page title matches" showing 20 items /page. There is also an option to then refine your search to: Content pages, Multimedia, Help and Project pages, Everything and Advanced. (Multimedia is generally the most useful item to select.)
- Every content page on this site has exactly the same lefthand menu items (shown by red highlight on the righthand image).
- Embryo icon image, identifies the website and can be clicked to return to the Main page.
- Below the image at the top of the menu are the main sub-section start pages.
- Below these items are openable menus Medicine, Science, Movies-Audio, Human Embryo, Systems, Animals, Shortcuts and Toolbox. (Click them again to close the menu)
Abnormal - start page is also available from top of menu, this sub-menu contains links the topics associated with abnormal development. This includes origins of abnormalities and diagnostic techniques used in determining abnormal development.
Animals - start page is also available from top of menu, this sub-menu contains a list of different animal development information available. Animal common names have been used to help users who may not recognise animal scientific names (for example, fly for drosophila melanogaster). Some developmental models (mouse, rat, zebrafish, frog, fly) may have several additional resource pages.
Explore - a shortcut to topics that may be of interest to students but not available under the other broad topic links. These include: assisted reproductive technologies (covering IVF), histology (the structure in development and adult of tissues), historic embryology (how embryology developed), new resources (iBooks, journals, textbooks), K12 (for earlier readers), molecular (for later readers) statistics and stem cells.
Shortcuts - are ways to get help, to contribute, see changes, categories and new content. Help links to this current page. Contributors can read the information below on this help page and then read about editing (editing basics). To see changes, the software can automatically list changes (Recent changes), as well as an author manually compiled list (Site updates), and automatically show any recently added files/images (New images). Categories are a list of all the author added classifications to pages and media, these group content by topic and are shown at the bottom of both pages and media files. Help, is the page you are currently reading!
Toolbox - are ways to work on the site and access statistical pages. To see other site pages that link to the current page (What links here) and to show recent changes in link pages (Related changes). To add new image, movie, audio, PDF and other formatted files (Upload file). An automatically generated website information page showing statistical and other information (Special pages). To reformat the current page in a version suitable for printing (Printable version). Finally, a way of generating a link that shows the current page version viewed, even if it has been changed in the future (Permanent link).
Front Page Image
- The front page image also lists main site sub-sections, some are additional to the lefthand menu list. (The image can be easier to see on some portable devices, where print can be initially very small.)
- The image is also mapped, so that clicking a topic on this image will open that sections introduction page.
- Reproductive Cycles - links to a start page on topics such as menstrual and estrous reproductive cycles.
- Embryonic Development
- Systems Development
- Fetal Development
- Diagnosis and Abnormalities
- Animal Development
- Site Map is an author generated map and therefore does not contain all the website pages.
- The links have been grouped and structured into headings that reflect main subject subheadings.
Getting Started as a Contributor
Before you begin, follow these 5 steps and your contribution/project work will be much easier.
- Preferences Page begin by setting your own preferences, which will let you set up how your work will be acknowledged on this site (Undergraduate students should leave all associated identity information as your student number).
- Help:Editing Basics will explain how to make headings, lists and tables, which will help you understand how to do simple page editing. If you prefer to have a simple editing reference sheet, print out this linked One page Wiki Reference Card and use it when editing your project page.
- Help:Copyright Tutorial explains how to be legal, which will explain what you can add and how this should be referenced (Undergraduate students, remember the university policy UNSW Plagiarism and Learning Centre - Plagiarism information).
- Image Tutorial explains how to make your content interesting for viewers by adding images. This tutorial explains how to locate an image, prepare it for uploading, cite the source correctly, and also information on how the image can be positioned on the page.
- Reference Tutorial explains how you can acknowledge by citation the sources you have used for your content. This site uses two extensions that generate a reference list and format the reference for you.
The links below are to the tutorials listed above.
