Hi just putting up one or two thigns for a characcter I just built.
Nice stuff! Welcome to the Wiki Arken. - Issaru
ObWelcome: Please note the BestPractices page, however. The wiki has developed certain standards for organisation that it is best to follow, lest other, less charitable, wikizens get irate. ^_^ I suggest you move and #REDIRECT your spells to subpages leading from Sorcery, as opposed to being merely linked to from there. - instructional Moxiane
Hi thanks for the advice, I'm honestly really sorry, I read the best practices before I posted but was aware i'd probably messed up. To be honest though I'm fairly new to writing on a wiki and am not fully sure how to put the mistakes I made right. Is there any advice you could give me? -Arken with apologies.
- S'OK. There's a few things, really. One - don't be afraid to ask for help (like now). We're mostly nice people here. Two - if you're unsure how wiki-format works, the best thing you can do is to find a page with formatting you like and click the edit link to check out the wiki-code. Three - base level pages ie:
... /wiki.pl?[[BaseLevelPage]]are generally for categories, such as Charms or Campaigns and UserPages, rather than specific content. Four - unfortunately UseModWiki doesn't allow us to delete a page once it has been made, so in a way your mistakes will remain forver. :) But, if you edit the page to say #REDIRECT NewPage/NewSubPage, with the appropriate page after the #REDIRECT then anyone going to the original site will be bounced where you want them to go now.
- Hope all of that helps. on a soap-box Moxiane
Sorry about this, another question, I've been trying to put things right so I think now the versions on the Sorcery page lead to subpages here. However the original set of spells I put up (which were horrible mistakes as I made a messs not only of placing them but in naming them :-() won't seem to redirect. If I write #REDIRECT Arken/TurntheBlades for example on Turn the Blades it comes up with a question mark at the end of the link I try to create, which means it doesn't recognise the page as already existing right? - Honestly am trying, Arken
That's because you haven't written a page called Arken/TurnTheBlades and moved the text there. A Redirect destroys the content on the current page and simply sends anyone linking there to the page following REDIRECT. So you have to make the new page first. - Telgar
Ah right, I thought I had: Arken/TurntheBlades
(It's in my spells section) but I'm probably missing something, will have another look. Thanks for the help again.
You have missed something, but it's small, doesn't matter too much, and I doubt you will again, it's fairly easy to miss the first time. Capitalization matters, and soArken/TurntheBlades is different fromArken/TurnTheBlades. All you need to do is change the t to a lower-case on the redirect, and it should work. --
Right I think I've fixed everything, sorry for putting everyone through that and thanks for the help :). -- Arken
