=== Add Podcast Episode Information to Wiki ===
 
* Find new episodes of [https://art19.com/shows/the-portal The Portal Podcast].
 
* Create a page for the podcast episode. Here's the list of [[All Episodes]]. Edit the page and add the newest episode there. Let logic lead you down the path.
 
* Put the description paragraph at the top of the document. (You may be tempted to put a heading above the intro paragraph called "Description". Resist this temptation. If you put that heading, the Table of Contents will be put at the very top of the document. This will make the "next" and "previous" navigation hard to find.)
 
* Add the thumbnail using the format of [https://i.ytimg.com/vi/dQw4w9WgXcQ/maxresdefault.jpg this URL]. All you have to do is change the YouTube ID in the URL to get the large thumbnail for any video. Look at how the other pages do this and copy that to the new page.
 
* Make sure to include the buttons: next, prev, mp3, art19, etc.

The programs below have been useful for automatically generating a transcription of audio or video, which then only needs editing to properly identify speakers, fix grammatical issues, and be made human-readable. Once this has been done transcripts can be exported as Microsoft Word documents, which allows for easy find-and-replace editing that implements wiki-formatting syntax before copying the finalized transcript onto its respective wiki page. In addition, exporting and uploading to the wiki a .vtt version of the transcript allows it to be used in many of our [[Projects|community projects]]. Some of the listed programs have free trials/transcription time, so don't hesitate to get involved!

Each time a new YouTube video is released, we need to take the audio from that and upload it to the CDN on the wiki. This will ensure that all of our time codes are matching up.
