  • I apologize for my negligence of the Main Page, but the time seems to have slipped away. Despite that, after talking with some of my fellow councilors, I found out who the person responsible for the collapsible templates on the Dragon Age Wiki is. It’s an Admin named Tierrie, but she’s now inactive. Despite this however, I was able to dig around her contributions & find the source code used for those templates; it’s even more extensive than I thought. Templates for specific books could potentially be made, & the script uses cookies to keep specific templates open across the website. This means if you opened a spoiler template for Changes, but left a Cold Days template closed, you could then go to a completely different page & see that Changes is still open & Cold Days is still closed! Readers who have read Changes but not Cold Days might be able to see info about Changes without spoiling the rest of the series, & now that I’ve found the source code, I think I can finally begin testing to make such templates here.

  • Check it out, see if it’s good. If you have any suggestions for further organization, or better images, et cetera, let me know. I’ll start the Desktop Page tomorrow if I’m free again.

    • Youtube. Ok, I’ll search a bit. Meanwhile, tell me if you like the current Discussions Categories; you can find them here. Apologies for the brightness, but I have no control over the theme. Of course nowadays even the Forum isn’t used at all really, but we might as well prepare a place for conversation in the event that more people come, such as if we manage to get a Spotlight from Community Central. Do you think the current Categories are good, or should we change ’em up a bit? I’ll draft Discussion Guidelines soon.
      Discussions Guidelines are done. Are they good?

    • Excellent.

      I wouldn't modify anything until we get some movement on it.

  • Looking at the Mobile Main Page “The Dresden Files” & “Harry Dresden” as featured categories. Did you add those, or are they default? If you’re having bugs with the module, then I can try adding whatever categories you want, but if those categories were intended, then I suggest trying again.

    • Alright. We’re no where near done with categories, but the featured content I’ll leave to rest. Categories have to be very well fleshed out because the Mobile Main Page is essentially the navigation hub of the entire wiki when you’re on mobile, so I’ll keep adding until I’m satisfied.

    • Go right ahead - you're better informed than I am.

  • About Harry Dresden’s Parasite. Why is that better than simply its referred book name? Also, did you want to start using the Blog Module soon? It’s ready, just say the word & I can install it.

    • Hmmm. Even clicking on "publish", I fail to see any result. Further, I'd imagine there's got to be some history appearing either in the wikiactivity feed or in the recentchanges feed. Nothing appears there. Unless one actually has to work from a mobile, what am I doing wrong?

    • Hmmm, this is troubling. I will try it soon, but yes, the full result should appear on mobile.

  • If you have a blog you want to put on the List (that appears sitewide), then add [[Category:Staff Blogs]] to the bottom of the page & it will show up there. Once you do, I’ll install the necessary JS via ImportJS so that the module will go live. I haven’t installed it yet because we currently have no blogs in the list, so it would just be an empty module.

  • Why are you changing the categories to have after clauses with random characters? Like [[Category:Bleh|*]] or [[Category:Bleh|/]]. Just curious.

  • I’m moving Imports from Common.js (which takes forever to update) to ImportJS (which updates instantly). Since it takes a while for Common.js to update, it won’t register that I’ve taken the imports out of Common.js for a day or so, but ImportJS will register that I put the imports into it immediately. Because of this, we will have some duplicates until Common.js synchronizes with ImportJS; an example being that your JS-reliant Message Wall Tag is now doubled. It will soon be fixed however.

    • Maybe, but you’ll never be prepared if you don’t learn how; trial & error is a good way to do so. 😏
      I’ve actually never seen that movie

  • Put this in your personal common.js file (or wikia.js for Oasis only) to keep closed Infoboxes open for you even when they are closed for everyone else :)

    $(function() {
        if ($('.portable-infobox').length === 0) {
            return;
        }
     
        if ($('.portable-infobox section').hasClass('pi-collapse-closed')) {
            $('.portable-infobox section').removeClass('pi-collapse-closed');
            return;
        }
    });

  • I’m pretty sure Jim describes the height of each character as he explains them (“five foot nothing” for Murphy), so it may be good for the characteristics section.

  • {{Test}}

    Do you like it? You may have to null edit it to see all of the fields, but they all work. I can make it wider if necessary & change it in other ways with CSS.
