Content → Notes
Notes are bits and pieces of text that you can re-use from one portfolio page in another. These are the text boxes that you could not save in versions prior to Mahara 1.5.
3.7.1. View your notes¶
Though you cannot create notes directly from this page, you can edit your notes. Their content will be changed wherever that note is used.
- Note: This column contains the titles of the notes where they appear for the first time.
- Titled: This column shows the title of the text box blocks so that you can find the requisite note more easily esp. when you changed the title considerably.
- The Contained in column lists all the pages in which this text box is used. It is matched up with the Titled column.
- Attachments : This column displays the number of attachments you have per note.
- Click the Edit button to make changes to the note. Beware that any changes you make here are made to all instances of the note.
- Click the Delete button to permanently delete the note. This action cannot be undone and all instances of the note are deleted from portfolio pages.
- When you submitted a portfolio page that contains notes, you cannot change the note’s content or delete it until the page is released again.
3.7.2. Edit your notes¶
You can edit your notes to make changes to them.
When you make changes to a note from this page, all instances of this note on any portfolio page will be affected.
A warning message appears at the top of the page if you opened a note that is contained in more than one page. If you edit this note, it will be changed in all locations where this note appears.
If you do not wish the note to be changed everywhere it appears, go to the page where the note should stay as it is, go into the block configuration and click the “Make a copy” link above the text editor.
Title: The title of your existing note is displayed.
Note: The content of your note is displayed. If you make changes here, they will be applied to all instances where the note appears.
Tags: Enter tags to find your text box more easily at a later stage. Separate your tags with commas. If you already have tags, you can click on the link Show my tags and select the ones that you think will fit for this collection as well. They will be entered into the text field for you.
Advanced licensing: You see this option if the site administrator turned on license metadata. If you click it, you see two additional license fields, “Licensor” and “Original URL”, that you can fill in if this in not your own note or if you had published it elsewhere before.
Attachments: Attach files to a text box as additional evidence for the text you are writing.
When you edit your note, you can attach files or remove files as you would do on the File(s) to download block.
Allow comments: Tick this checkbox if you want to allow others to leave comments on your note.
Click the Save button to keep your changes or click the Cancel button to abort your changes.
You can watch a demo of this feature (for Mahara 1.5) in action.
