Hey Tono555! Never been acqauinted with you, but I'm Henry. While I haven't been active in years, I was once very involved on this wikia. It's nice to meet you!
I messaged my old friend Lady Lostris about this earlier today - but basically I'm setting up a wikia of my own to detail the world I am building for my novel project. I want it to look nice, with sliding galleries and infoboxes and the lot, but am not really sure how to go about doing that. Coding is not one of my areas of expertise. LL referenced you to me, saying that you're part of the Wikia Vanguard team and might be able to help.
Basically, I want to know how to implement the tools needed for building infoboxes and other similar modifications and transferring coding from this wikia, since I have accessible infoboxes, to my own wikia. I'll attach it here for simplicity - it's called The World of Runora .
I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks so much for helping out!
I'll do some work visualizing and stuff, provide you with examples from here, and then get back to you. I'm gonna be out of town all next week so I'm not sure how often I'll be on this but I'll definitely keep in touch.
Not Tono, but it's simple: if we start making categories for everything related to an article, you'll never stop. Catergories exist to make navigation between related articles easier, not to make links to anything remotely connected to it. That's why we have the policy of putting new categories through a War Room discussion before we acually implement it here. Also, a lot of the time, categories can be a little ambiguous. Easy example: we don't have a category for villains or antagonists, because so many characters are both good guys and bad guys at the same time. It wouldn't really add much to being an easy way to navigate the wiki. Same goes for airbending and spirituality. We don't even really know how the heredity of bending works, is it spiritual, is it genetic, is it both, who knows. Adding it is not much of a benefit here.
Hi Tono! I'm Quamboq from the German Wiki, and I recently gained the Admin-status of the Nicholas Flamel Wikia. I wanted to adapt the Familytree-Template (in German Stammbaum-Vorlage) to this Wiki and copied the full Code of the German Wiki. Just like I had imagined, it didn't work. But what can be the problem?
