This is a general guide to work on Wiki pages.

How to upload images or files?

  • Simply click on "Upload file" in the left frame at the bottom. This will bring you to the upload page.

How to make sections?

Levels of sections

  • When you start a page which is called, let's say "Test", the Wiki will automatically add a huge header at the beginning called "Test" like this on this page:

Test

You can make other big headers like that by doing:

= Test =
  • Now, let's say you want to divide the "Test" section into two sub-sections called "Experiment A" and "Experiment B", just do:
== Experiment A ==
== Experiment B ==

Which will give:

Experiment A

Experiment B

  • You can further sub-divide sections into smaller ones like let's say "Results 1" and "Results 2" like this:
=== Results 1 ===
=== Results 2 ===

This will give:

Results 1

Results 2

  • And even further!
==== Sub-Results A ====
==== Sub-Results B ====

...

And we obtain:

Sub-Results A

Sub-Results B

And even more!

===== Sub-Results A.1 =====

Which gives:

Sub-Results A.1

And more:

====== Sub-Results A.1.1 ======

Which gives:

Sub-Results A.1.1

Templates

There are templates you can use to make your page look wonderful!

Chart/Table

When making a table, use the "!" character to specify a "header" cell. Use "|" otherwise for a normal cell. Some important table formatting rules are:

  • To make a new column, use "!!" or "||" depending on whether you're adding a header cell or not.
  • To make a new row, use "|-" then go at the line to add the new row.

This makes a nice simple chart.

 {|class="wikitable"
! 1 !! 2 !! 3!! 4
|-
!4 
| 3 || 2 || 1
|}
1 2 3 4
4 3 2 1
  • It is also possible to add some Html or CSS formatting code before any cell.

Example:

 {|class="wikitable"
! width="100"|1 !! width="50" style="text-align:right"|2 !! width="50"|3 !! width="50"|4
|-
!4 
| 3 || 2 || style="border: 2px solid blue"|1
|}
1 2 3 4
4 3 2 1

You can make all kinds of things. Try to experiment.

Number Number Number Number
4 3 2 1

Other tables include:

{{ShortCardTable
| id             = 
| name           = 
| description    =
| combo          =  (Optional. Row won't show if omitted)
}}
{{PetTable
|PetName=
|PetImage=
|EggPic=
|EggName=
|TamePic=
|TameName=
|AccessoryPic=
|AccessoryName=
|FoodPic=
|FoodName=
}}

Alphabetical Quick Link

This is used to quickly access a letter in the alphabet. First put this code at the top of your page:

{{CompactTOC8|side=yes}}

That will make:

Contents:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Now all you do is this

==A==

Information

==B==

Information

==C==

Information

A

Information

B

Information

C

Information


When you click A,B,C from the above it will forward you to the A section. This is extremely helpful for pages with alot of different items/links in it.
