Participating in the World Wide Panorama:
Uploading and Editing


How to Upload and Edit Your WWP Panorama

Submission is done with a web browser form. The preparation server allows you to register as a participant, upload your images, and type in the title, place, caption and other data. You can view it exactly as it will appear on the final site and make corrections right up to the deadline.

The period for submissions is announced on the World Wide Panorama facebook group. Make sure that you are signed up there.


Getting an account

IF YOU PARTICIPATED BEFORE AND HAVE YOUR USER NAME AND PASSWORD: Go to the WWP Preparation Server and you can get started. If you've forgotten your password, follow the directions for a new account below and be sure to check the box saying you've participated in the WWP before.

IF YOU DO NOT ALREADY HAVE AN ACCOUNT on the WWP Preparation Server, go here to request one.

You will need to enter this basic information:

Then click the "Sign me up" button and wait for one of us to email you your logon information.

NOTE: Incomplete requests will not be processed but silently discarded. Incomplete requests are e.g. missing family name, URL instead of a family name, missing email.


Log on and edit your Profile information

Once you have input your basic information (above) you will need to wait for an email from one of the WWP admins. It will send you to the opening page of the WWP Preparation Server.

The first page you see after clicking edit and logging in will give you all the information that you need. The blue bar at the top of the page will allow you to navigate and edit any of your pages.


Notes on the processing

Thumbnails are generated by a separate process. They will be periodically updated (usually within 20 minutes), but may take longer if the off-site server is tempoarily unavailable.

If your thumbnail does not reflect the view you’ve chosen, simply make a minor adjustment to its viewing angle or zoom factor and save the new setting. This will erase the previous version and restart the build process.

When new information is added or changed, the WWP software will flag your entry to be approved by Landis, Markus, or Don. Until it is approved, it is taken off-line from the preview site. This is to avoid any problems that might arise from information being improperly edited. We will most likely be routinely approving these entries on a daily basis. While it's waiting to be approved, you will still have access to all of the information and can see it and edit it at any time.

For any questions specific to your account please get in touch with and admin on the facebook group. Any general questions can be referred to either this group, too.


 Advanced Formatting: CKEditor.

The WWP Application uses the CKEditor to edit some HTML elements directly. Just click into the text field to make the edit menu appear. It should be pretty self explanatory.
