Welcome to the Square WikiEdit

...and thanks for helping out!

Sorry for the lack of Welcome templates. Blue。 14:56, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

No worries. And thanks. --Hecko X 15:00, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

How do you place the Templates at the top center of an article? Blue。 15:13, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

Aren't they already at the top center..? Anywho, to place them at the top, you of course just place it at the top. To center them, use align="center". If I understand your question correctly, that is. --Hecko X 15:20, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
For an example, see Aya Brea. In my Firefox browser, the expand template seems to be on the right side of the article. Blue。 15:25, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
It's perfectly centered in mine. But I'm gonna teach you a little "trick" I use to eyeball these kinds of things (I also use it to make sure I don't make things too wide by accident, when using px as width mesurement). Click edit on the article where you have to eyeball something. Below (or above, whatever works for you, I prefere below myself) whatever it is you want to eyeball, write:
{|width="100%" style="background:black"
|j
|}
Click "show preview" and use the black line as an indicator. It's not perfect, but it beats trying to eyeball it from sides you don't really know where start or end because of the margins. If you want to be even more accurate, you can use this:
{|width="100%" style="background:black" border="1px white"
|width="5%"|j||width="5%"|j||width="5%"|j||width="5%"|j||width="5%"|j||width="5%"|j
|width="5%"|j||width="5%"|j||width="5%"|j||width="5%"|j||width="5%"|j||width="5%"|j
|width="5%"|j||width="5%"|j||width="5%"|j||width="5%"|j||width="5%"|j||width="5%"|j
|width="5%"|j||width="5%"|j
|}
and use the lines as lines on a ruler. Or something. --Hecko X 15:37, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
Wow, I could see the templates all centered. Thanks, Hecko :D Blue。 15:55, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
No worries, glad to be able to share a trick or two. --Hecko X 16:03, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

Infobox help! Edit

I'm currently trying to personalize the Character Infobox in the Square Wiki. You see, I have an idea that users can add additional information besides the basic rows "Name", "Age", "Class", "Weapon" etc etc, eg. the Chrono Trigger character infobox has "Era" and "Element" row. I looked at a Wikipedia example: Template:General VG Reviews where editors can add additional review scores besides the preloaded ones. I would like the Wiki to use the same character infobox but customizable according to individual game info. Hope you could shed some light on Template:Infobox-character. Blue。 20:26, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

I can think of two possible options. One is to simply add them to the template like you've done now, but that will at some point make it overly long and complex (but at least it will work). The other is to call on game specific template designed as an extension, rather than an individual template. However, I have never tried this, and don't even know if it's possible (at least with my skills), but no guts, glory. I'm gonna run a test or two with a template I'm gonna create, which will need deletion later. Edit Or you could just make a mix. Instead of predefining the options like you've done, just call them '''{{{option1}}}''' and {{{input1}}} all the way up to 10 so that people can define whatever they need themselves. Like with the era thing on CT would be
option1 = Original Era
input1 = Prehistoric
or something like that. In a sense, I think that would be a decent solution, the only problem would be making sure the are all uniform for the characters of the same game. I'm gonna wait for your input on this before making the "call on template"-idea. --Hecko X 03:04, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
You could try them on and we'll see. But I like the latter option. The former makes the template horribly long, I've tried. Blue。 13:15, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
I can't really get the call-thing to work, likely because you have to use a bunch of "#if" setups, and I'm not to used to those... but the option/input is a relatively safe bet. --Hecko X 13:55, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
Okay, how do you get the option/input to work? Blue。 14:02, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
We have some vandal attacks in the FFwiki. Probably we'll put this on hold, okay? Blue。 14:03, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
