Confluence has been upgraded!

https://wiki.shanti.virginia.edu/ is now a read-only repository. It will be permanently decommissioned on December 15, 2019. Visit UVA's new instance of Confluence to create new wikis or modify existing content.

Before you begin, read the guide to  texts' structure. This guide helps you understand how texts are built.

Split Texts

If you already have the content for your text, you may want Texts to split it into sections automatically. In this case, use the SHANTI Texts Splitter while you're creating your title page. To do this:

  1. Click  SHANTI Texts Splitter below the title field 
    • A section will expand
  2. Choose Create a new SHANTI Text section at each HTML heading
  3. Select all the headings that mark a new section
    • If your text already has HTML headings, you can stop here; your text will split when you Save the section
  4. Enter all your text in the "Content" box
  5. Click Source
    • This shows you the HTML for the text
  6. Wrap the titles of your sections in HTML headings
    • For example, <h1>First Section</h1>, where "First Section" is the section title
    • Check out this external introduction to HTML for help
    • Your text will split on the headings when you Save the section
