Hey! We hope you all are doing well. This article intends to introduce you to the editor tools and contribution rules. We truly believe in excellent quality content and learning through interaction and research work. We, therefore, have looked at various aspects of contributing and have incorporated them into our system.

The Editor:

Users can write their articles using the editor, which they can access by clicking on the add post button. 

You can get started by adding a title to your article and then add the primary material to the content section. You can add images using the media button in the editor. To embed a youtube video, you open the media tab and add the youtube video URL to insert the URL section. You may also require to add mathematical expressions to your work. Have a look at the math section below.

Math and Latex support:

You may add a mathematical expression to your article using latex. Just add the formula between the line blocks

 and you are good to go. Take a look at the example below. 

In Article:

Kinetic energy is equal to $K.E = 1/2mv^{2}$

You may install a tool named Mathpix to take the snap of the equation you want to display, and it will return you a latex code that you can use in the article.

After completing all you have to do is add a thumbnail, tags, and category of the article and click on submit. If your work is incomplete, you may alternatively save it as a draft and work on it later. After submission, the article will be reviewed and posted on the website.

3D Modelling embedding:

Here is a fun part. You can add a 3D model to your post to make it more interactive for the reader. You can do this using sketchfab models. You can visit the website here, upload the model or choose from the models present and share it in the article using the embed shortcode and the URL of the model. Check out the example below as shown below.

Simulink Model View Embedding:

Matlab allows it’s users to generate a web view of the simulation performed in Simulink. After you have performed the simulation all you need to do is export the model as a web view. Goto file –>Export –> web to export your model.

You will obtain a zip which you can upload in the Sim Model section of the editor. You should also try unzipping and running the HTML file in your package. If it does not work then there must be an issue with your version of Matlab. It can be fixed simply by downloading the fix from here. In case you still have trouble you can contact us at [email protected]

After uploading you will need to provide a verification ID which is provided when in the media section when you upload the zip. Below is an example.

You will need to enter this ID in the Verification ID section in the editor.

You can see a live demo of the Simulink embedded model on the post “Introduction to PID Controllers“.

If you have any other queries feel free to reach us at [email protected] We will be glad to help you out.
