Forum:Initial template setup

Forums: Index > Wiki discussion > Initial template setup

Figured I'd let you guys know what I'm planning to do template- and script-wise. All in all, I think it's most sensible if I clean up the current set of templates (which mostly consists of older versions of Vault templates), update it and copy/adapt the Vault's most commonly needed templates. I might require your input/help for various things, so please keep an eye on this thread. -- Porter21 (talk) 23:01, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for all the help! I actually meant to do that myself too, but you'll probably handle it better. If you need any help, let me know. Ausir 23:09, 16 March 2012 (UTC)
No problem. I'll post here whenever I run into trouble ;) Not sure how much time I'll have over the weekend, but I might be able to finish this by Monday. -- Porter21 (talk) 23:30, 16 March 2012 (UTC)
All done. -- Porter21 (talk) 12:16, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Progress[edit source]

Pretty much done with templates and JavaScript except for the infobox templates. I've cleaned out unused templates, updated existing ones and added some new ones which might be handy. I've also created a basic Wasteland Wiki:Create article setup; I'll leave creating the actual layouts to you guys. Same for the portals; I've created them, but you'll have to fill them with content ;) -- Porter21 (talk) 12:01, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Infoboxes have now all been converted to the current meta-template - only need to update the documentation for a couple. I'll leave the rest to you; I'm sure you can handle copying/modifying any of The Vault's infoboxes you might need :) At this point, any template copied from the Vault should work flawlessly here.
Once I've updated the docs for the current infoboxes, I'll scurry back to the safety of The Vault. Give me a shout if you need help with anything related to templates/JS/CSS :) -- Porter21 (talk) 19:12, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Input required[edit source]

Template:Games[edit source]

To start with a first question: What game abbreviations will you need here and what should they be? -- Porter21 (talk) 23:01, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Game abbreviations:

  • Wasteland - WL1
  • Wasteland 2 - WL2
  • Fountain of Dreams - FoD
  • Meantime - MT

Ausir 23:09, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Alright, added these ({{abb}}). Also kept the "real", "none" and "wiki" abbreviations. -- Porter21 (talk) 23:30, 16 March 2012 (UTC)
Is that a dead cert Ausir? What are the other two you mentioned as well? EDIT: Don't worry, looked them up Φύλαξ [~μίλησε μου~] 23:38, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Template:Sourcebox[edit source]

Needed? If so, for which games? -- Porter21 (talk) 12:01, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Yes, for Fountain of Dreams (non-canon) and Meantime (canceled). Ausir 13:53, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
Done: {{FOD}}, {{MT}}. -- Porter21 (talk) 15:24, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Help required[edit source]

Template:Icon[edit source]

Could somebody go over {{icon}} and check which of the not-yet-uploaded ones are needed (or need to be renamed/repurposed)? -- Porter21 (talk) 12:01, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
