How to add Video

When you have a video, you should upload in Youtube.

Then click on Add Media just below the title for your article.

And choose the option Insert from URL.

How to add Formulas

The DSS platform integrates the super-fast KaTeX math typesetting engine with your WordPress website. The plugin allows you to put LaTeX in a <code>[ latex]…[ /latex]</code> shortcode, and beautiful math appears on your post or page.

The platform also has an option to use the excellent jsDelivr CDN to load the KaTeX scripts, further increasing the performance of the plugin.

Equations in <code>[ latex display=”true”]…[ /latex]</code> will be rendered in display mode (rather than inline mode) and centered on its own line.



How to intgrate Jupyter Notebook into an article:

1) Click “Add media”
2) Upload the .ipynb file
3) Select the uploaded .ipynb file
4) click “add to post”.

This will add a link to the file in the article, which will be substituted with the notebook’s contents when the article is saved and opened (rendered) on the website.




The processes of posting article

Articles have two stances.

  • Draft – Is the working stance of the article, where only the team members and mentors can see, update, and comment.
  • Published – Is the stance where the article is viewable by everyone in the internet, but only logged in participants can comment on it.


Interactions with other Articles

The participants are allowed and encouraged to comment, upvote and ask questions to other articles. We want to create long lasting knowledge base and sense of community.

Video Data Chat Guide

To start a video chat you need few things.

First you have to connect the people with which you want to make video chat. (by direct message or being in common group)

It happens this way:

There are three ways of joining a public channel, you can either search for it, be invited to it or be mentioned in it. For starting a direct message you can either search the user you want to talk or click on that user’s avatar and click on the “Conversation Button”.

Now you are ready for the group video chat. Simply click on the three dots at the top right of you channel.

Then click on the Video Chat link.

Keep in mind that you may have to allow the usage of you camera and microphone manually for the video chat.
