The Wiki Tag! - Xander - 02-11-2007 03:22 AM

To work in conjunction with our Wiki project I have created a special tag that will link to pages in our Wiki!

As a sample, [*wiki*]Kollossus[/*wiki*] without the stars will produce Kollossus.

EDIT: Alternatively you can use [*[Kollossus]*] without the stars to produce Kollossus. (Just like the Wiki uses!)

This way when you make a post, you can wrap your key words in a Wiki tag and people won't have go ask "What is a Kollossus?"  They can just click the link to find out from the Wiki!  And if people already know what a Kollossus is, they can check out the Wiki entry and update it if need be!

Cheers,
-Xander

That is an AWESOME idea!

Haha, yes, and I coded it myself, hehe!  It should really help the functionality of the Wiki.  Like, if you want to make page for yourself, just use the tag and boom: Hashuts Blessing!

Now click the link, and click, create this page, and you are done!


RE: The Wiki Tag! - Hashut's Blessing - 02-11-2007 12:42 PM

When I have more time, I shall. It shall not be only about me, but about The Blessed One (I.E. Hashut's Messiah, my character, Hashut's Blessing upon the world.) and my army and ideas etc. Yeah!

Oh,that is very useful. I'd best get started then.

The Wiki Thread - Ellimist - 02-11-2007 08:25 PM

This thread is meant to get you to help us with ideas for the Chaos Dwarf wiki.

The simplest way that you can do this is by providing new pages for editing by placing wiki tags around words that need pages in the wiki, and placing them in this thread. This is done by putting a wiki tag  ([*wiki]Example[/*wiki]) around the word, without the stars. This automatically creates a page that can be editied in the wiki. So, add those tags and start editing those pages! Anyone can do it, and the mods can help tidy it up once the information is in there.

The other way you can help is by giving us ideas for things such as new sidebar categories, and other generic ways to improve on what we have.

Lets see what we've got!


RE: The Wiki Thread - Xander - 02-11-2007 08:41 PM

Ellimist is right!  Don't be scared to add content! Do as best you can, and others will correct the formatting, so no worries!

I think I am going to add tags for [*[ and ]*]  (stars removed) just like the Wiki has... that might make it even easy for members to use!

*makes another tag*

EDIT:
Testing [*[ and ]*] tags: Kollossus

EDIT 2:
Boo yah.


RE: The Wiki Thread - Xander - 02-12-2007 03:45 AM

Here are some Wiki entries that we could use:
Black Orcs, Slaves, Hobgoblins, Ogres, Ogre Kingdoms...

It's easy! Try it.


RE: The Wiki Thread - Hashut's Blessing - 02-12-2007 08:30 AM

I am editing and sorting out army lists as we speak! Or type. Or browse. Or whatever.


RE: The Wiki Tag! - Hashut's Blessing - 02-12-2007 08:43 AM

A quick question. Would I have to remove the apostrophe from my name for the wiki link to work?

That may be the case.

Test: Hashuts Blessing Hashut's Blessing Hashut\'s Blessing
Does ' have a code like %45 or something?  I will have to look into it.


RE: The Wiki Tag! - Hashut's Blessing - 02-12-2007 05:35 PM

No apostrophe for me. Still, people will know it's me anyway. They're not THAT stupid, he he he.


RE: The Wiki Thread - pulper - 02-14-2007 07:31 PM

I donīt know where this should go within the Wiki but both are very helpful resourcess:

http://www.solegends.com

old catalogue scans

http://www.collecting-citadel-miniatures.com

they try to gather pics of old ranges in order to complement the catalogue and newsletter scans available at SoL. Complete range of unpainted Marauder Chaos Dwarfs.


RE: The Wiki Thread - Xander - 02-14-2007 07:33 PM

Ya, we need that stuff archived. For sure.  Thanks Pulper!

You should try editing a page!  Don't worry if it is not perfect, someone will adjust it.  That's how Wikis work. Happy


RE: The Wiki Thread - Hashut's Blessing - 02-14-2007 09:35 PM

Any new ideas on what we can add in?


RE: The Wiki Thread - Xander - 02-14-2007 10:20 PM

Everything!  We need info and pics for every unit type!
Earthshaker, Death Rocket, Bull Centaurs, Sneaky Gits... the list goes on and on!


RE: The Wiki Thread - pulper - 02-15-2007 06:15 AM

I added both the Marauder as well as the Citadel warriors to the miniatures page. If the layout is fine with you Iīm going to add the rest including the much sought after cannon.


RE: The Wiki Thread - Hashut's Blessing - 02-15-2007 08:14 AM

I'll see what I can do...


RE: The Wiki Thread - Xander - 02-15-2007 10:20 AM

Yes, the format is correct.  Well done pulper.


RE: The Wiki Thread - Hashut's Blessing - 02-15-2007 10:28 AM

Since I don't know how to do formatting, just keep an eye out for my name when it comes to the recent changes page. Then can you format anything I add please? Thanks.


RE: The Wiki Thread - Xander - 02-15-2007 10:39 AM

Yep, that's the idea.

To learn the formatting just edit a sample page that is complete already.


RE: The Wiki Thread - Hashut's Blessing - 02-15-2007 10:48 AM

I'll do that when I have more time, for now though, I can just get the info up. Happy


RE: The Wiki Thread - Ellimist - 02-15-2007 03:35 PM

Heh. Who made a page for "The Police?"


RE: The Wiki Thread - Hashut's Blessing - 02-16-2007 10:32 AM

I believe that was Kyte. You can view recent changes and it'll say whom changed it. If they weren't logged into the wiki, it'll say their IP address.


RE: The Wiki Thread - Xander - 02-16-2007 02:57 PM

Ya, Kyte loves the police. Tongue  But we since got inter-wiki links working... so I doubt the page is needed any longer.


RE: The Wiki Thread - Hashut's Blessing - 02-16-2007 09:01 PM

Oh right, cool. Fair enough.


RE: The Wiki Thread - metro_gnome - 02-16-2007 11:39 PM

these wiki tags are pretty cool... but they do require some thought...
im wondering how difficult it would be to put something in place like they have at warseer...
when you use an abbeviation like "LOL" it is linked to something that explains what that means...
its a pretty new thing... but i think you can tailor them to your needs...

its not flawless... i know everytime i complain about "armed to da teef"... the "da" gets explained as "dark angels"...
but all the same if you could set up an automatic refrence to the wiki it would do wonders...

Yes, for certain words we could do that.  It becomes slightly more difficult if people already use the wiki tags however.  Example, if we replace all "Kollossus" with [wiki]Kollossus[/wiki], then all [wiki]Kollossus[/wiki] will become [wiki][wiki]Kollossus[/wiki][/wiki].  So I will have to work out the correct "regular expression" to sort that out, maybe if I search for " Kollossus " with a leading and trailing space... yes, that would work... well, then I solved the problem as I typed... Hehe.

So what words/terms do we want flagged?

Ravening Hordes?
Kollossus?
Immortal(s)?
Daemonology?

Name some more and we will add them. Happy


RE: The Wiki Thread - Hashut's Blessing - 02-17-2007 09:26 AM

So, basically, are you saying we should have a glossary of terms?


RE: The Wiki Thread - metro_gnome - 02-17-2007 10:07 AM

well isnt the wiki a glossary of terms?
i think whatever you have a wiki entry on ought to be flagged in this manner...
so that nearly every post refers to the wiki...
it would certainly be helpful in advertising the wiki...


RE: The Wiki Thread - Hashut's Blessing - 02-17-2007 07:31 PM

So many wiki words in one post!
