Media

Include Media documents in articles

Existing images, audio files or pdf files can be included in an article via Drag&Drop. Simply drag the file from the FileExplorer into the open article.

DragAndDop

WebMiau configures everything and creates the link where you dropped the file. A preview can be created immediately.

If the image is not visible, you need to change the language of the preview or add the missing language to the image.

Add a new language to an existing media file

  1. Search for and open the existing image in the FileExplorer. Above each image, you can see the corresponding language.
  2. To add another language, Drag&Drop the file from your file system into the rectangle behind the previous language's implementation:

add_step2

  1. Then choose a language from the drop down list. All unused languages will be available
    Choose zxx if you want to use the image as the default image for all languages. Both the zxx implentation and other existing language-specific implementations may be present.


    The MUMIE server selects the image which corresponds to language configured by the user/student (e.g.: en), if it does not find an english version of the image, MUMIE uses zxx.

The other input fields are optional.

Change an existing language

Changing a language functions similarly to adding a language.
Simply Drag&Drop the new image from the file system onto the image to be replaced.
