Belgrave's Basic Words of Wiki Wisdom
  1. The 'Show preview' button is your friend. You cannot use it often enough.
  2. Perfection takes time. It may look good today, but it still isn't perfect.
  3. If you cannot figure out how to do it today, try again a week from today.
  4. No matter what you do, it is highly unlikely that you will break the wiki.
  5. It is easier to start small and work bigger than starting big and working smaller.

Things To Know

  • The most basic thing to know is Wiki Markup.
  • Advanced formatting uses HTML and CSS.
  • You can link directly to the in-game images.
  • Don't be afraid to ask another user for help.
  • You are completely free to copy someone else's code.

Using Page Layouts
The easiest way to use the new page layouts is to copy the code into a text editor program and edit it there. With the game open in one window and the wiki page layout open in a window next to it, it is easy to flip from one to the other. I prefer to use Notepad.
