file macro in wiki pages needs documentation and appropriate highlighting
Can you please edit the text that shows up when editing topics pages and group wiki pages to include a reference to the "[[File(somefile.pdf)]]" macro. That macro is NOT in the documentation, but I think it should be listed at the same level as the example on the right of the edit screen.
Just add under the image macro description a text that also refers to the file macro
To include an image, use the image macro. For example: "The following diagram illustrates my point: [[Image(diagram.jpg)]]"
To include a file, use the file macro. For example: "This document includes how I plan to save the world [[File(savetheworld.pdf)]]"
Please make sure that the link to image macro actually goes to the item on the wiki page that describes the macro, not just the list of all macros.
Please add a line or two on the "File" macro so it is actually documented.
If this is a correct statement then, please make it explicit in the documentation.
"the uploaded file is not part of a general nanoHUB resource that is indexed etc. It is a document that is "private" to the wiki page that uses it. Access to the "private" document depends on the setting of the privacy of the whole wiki page.
