i wanna see captions!!!

  • Use thumb or frame parameter: [[Image:image.jpg|frame|600x600 or some other size|Caption.]]
  • OR this if the image is too big [[Image:image.jpg|frame|600x600|Caption.]] Caption
    • add line feeds between the image markup and caption PRN
  • good practice of center placement (think of the mobile viewport) - [[Image:image.jpg|800x800|center|frame|Figure 1. test of caption (Courtesy of Dr. Image Contributor)]]

Stopping TEXT FLOW around image

The text flow can be stopped by placing <br clear=all> (or if you prefer, <div style="clear: both"></div>) before the text that should start below the floating image.
add <br clear=all> element before text to alleviate aggravation :-)

Stain Uses and Suspected Ophthalmic Microorganisms

Gram stain

  • Bacteria

    • Determining polysaccharide and mucosubstances composition
  • Acanthamoeba spp. corneal cyst wall
  • Fungi
    • Consider PAS staining of eyelashes in chronic anterior blepharitis unresponsive to classic anti-bacterial treatment

Citations AKA References section

  • EEK! Tedium ALERT
  • A tag name refers to giving a footnote a unique identifier, use
    <ref name="name">
    • Current MediaWiki version does not allow integer tag names but you can bypass that by prefixing with a colon, ie
      <ref name=":4">
    • Unfortunately as the article changes over time the numeration can change.
    • A better practice would be to use a named identifier as a prefix such as the last name or string of the first part of the citation, ie
      <ref name="buffy4">
      and lowercase to be xml conformant for future proofing. This retains the original numeration from the user and introduces a unique name to trace back to the footnoted reference
    • Of course users can go back in the version History of the page and decipher the changes themselves.

vim substitution regex for hard coded numbered citations

%s/^\(\d*\)\.\s*\(\w*\)\(\s\|,\)\(.*\)/<ref name="\l\2\1">\1 \2\3\4<\/ref>/gc
g/<ref name="\w*">/call append(14,matchstr(getline("."),@/))
# where 14 is the line after all the formatted citations, the last line + 1

#close the tags

Easy peasy workflow for adding citations

  • Get your citation at PubMed: example citation: Artificial intelligence for diabetic retinopathy screening: a review
  • Under Format at upper left, select from the drop down: Summary (text) example citation in plain text
  • With copy and paste, stick that plain text between ref tags <ref></ref> and stick the whole thing in the body of the content that you are citing
  • Under Edit Source, it should look like this: New developments in automated DR detection algorithms can in diabetic retinopathy (DR) screening <ref>Grzybowski A, Brona P, Lim G, Ruamviboonsuk P, Tan GSW, Abramoff M, Ting DSW. Artificial intelligence for diabetic retinopathy screening: a review. Eye (Lond). 2019 Sep 5. doi: 10.1038/s41433-019-0566-0. [Epub ahead of print] Review. PubMed PMID: 31488886.</ref>
  • For extra credit, make it a named reference: <ref name="grzybowski">Grzybowski A, Brona P, Lim G, Ruamviboonsuk P, Tan GSW, Abramoff M, Ting DSW. Artificial intelligence for diabetic retinopathy screening: a review. Eye (Lond). 2019 Sep 5. doi: 10.1038/s41433-019-0566-0. [Epub ahead of print] Review. PubMed PMID: 31488886.</ref>
  • That wasn't so hard, was it?
