Description - W220 Wiki Example Item

This is a draft template for a single page Wiki article which can be copied from the Wiki Edit Window (click on tab "Edit" at top of this page) and pasted into a blank Edit Window as the beginning of a new Wiki article.

Note the W220 Wiki Encyclopaedia is not a discussion forum. For that, see the many Internet enthusiast forums such as BenzWorld, MBWorld, where you can post problems and seek ideas and solutions. The W220 Wiki Encyclopaedia is meant to be a concise and factual summary of the known issues and solutions, thus avoiding the need to trawl through endless Internet postings seeking the few gems of relevant information. It does however, require you as an experienced enthusiast, to help with the relevant knowledge, to author and edit these W220 Wiki articles, so that they evolve into authoritative works. The minimum contribution could be a link to a suitable posting and then other experts in the subject matter can edit and add their contributions, thus using the power of the Wiki.

In the Description section explain what the article is about, where it is located and how it works. Sub-headings are a good idea and will appear in the Contents Section. For example:

Sub-heading 1 – How W220 Wiki Example Item works

How W220 Wiki Example Item works including any pictures to help identify the part.

Sub-heading 2 Location - W220 Wiki Example Item

Pokseva has implemented a script which downloads youtube videos contained in the Wiki so that they can be later restored in case the original video is removed from youtube. For this feature to work, make sure that videos are "youtubized" using that {{#ev:youtube} markup as shown below.

Example for embedding YouTube video.
