Something interesting to note: I've worked on the infoboxes for this wiki. In particular, the infoboxes for characters. I'm sure you've seen them before - they're the little rectangular boxes that contain info, generally on the right-hand side of a page...
|Nicknames||So many. Tal, Talv, Talvi, Talvie, Talvy, Talvieno, Talveeno (ugh), etc.|
|Gender||Male. Most definitely male.|
Kind of like this, over here on the right-hand side of the page.
The way to make one of these is really, really simple. All you really have to do is add the following code:
As you'll notice, it doesn't look like much. Not yet, anyway. At the top right-hand corner of a page you're editing, you'll notice two tabs. One says "Source", and the other says "Visual". After you type in the code (copy-pasting is fine, too), you'll need to switch to Source, and then back to Visual. This will make it appear as a green piece of a jigsaw puzzle. Hover over it for a moment with your cursor and you'll have the option of editing it. From there, it's the easiest thing in the world - it explains everything for you, more or less. Well, besides a couple things.
To make line breaks, like I did with Talvieno's "affiliations", you'll have to type this code:
It'll look like this:
Putting the double brackets around a word turns it into a link, like the "Spearbreakers" in the example above.
It's really simple! I wanted to put this little tutorial out there so everyone else will know how it works.
If you have any questions, ask. I'll be happy to help.
