Server Wiki

Post by Grahf » Mon Sep 04, 2017 3:24 am

I love the server wiki. It makes sorting out what applies and doesn't apply to this server a lot easier. Can anyone who makes an account on the wiki makes edits?

I've never edited a wiki page before... Is it as easy as just copy/paste from the ffxiclopedia source page? I get bored at work sometimes, would give me something to do lol

You can copy and paste some things. I think the format is similar... you're welcome to mess around on a new page to figure it out.

Couldn't figure it out. Copy/paste doesn't work. Sad day.

Basically if you want to copy over from ffxiclopedia you go to edit source there and copy the code and then paste the code into the code editor on our wiki. It can be a bit confusing, took me a little while to figure out the syntax!

You should be able to copy and paste any NPC or Weapon/Item from the old wiki now. I noticed you trying to add weapons and npcs so I added all the templates needed to make the format look correct when you copy and paste. If you try to add other pages make sure you've also added the corresponding templates.

Cool thanks. Third time's the charm maybe. I got half of an NPC working yesterday and gave up lol

Played with it more. Weapons can be straight copy/paste (I picked a bad one to do, Maneater isn't actually from sheep in antlion clothing enm apparently. I figured out how to change it properly though!). Armor can mostly be copy/paste but is missing the Template:Armor. Someone more knowledgeable than myself probably has to add that then it can be copy/paste I assume.

I added Template:Armor and the other 4 templates needed to make that template work. If you run into anymore issues just let me know. Also, good job!
