How to Wikistates like a baws

Postby Epicnopolis » Sat Oct 15, 2011 5:56 pm

Just that. I'm...either very dumb, not searching in the proper places, or I'm just MISSING something. Either way, I'm trying to make a better Wikistates page for this nation as opposed to what I have now... :oops: You know...like a legit one. I'll use a friends as an example. If I could even get mine to REMOTELY look like this, that would be sweet.

Perhaps there are guidelines on the site that I'm missing? Or maybe someone could talk me through it?

I don't even know how to write something on there. And it's good to see another nation I haven't seen in awhile back from the grave.

Just look at the source for the page and fuck around testing it on your own page.

Enjoy :)


I could kiss you. Thanks! :)

EDIT: Actually, I'm not completely sure if that was what I wanted. I don't think it tells me how to do like...pictures n'such.

If you'll look at the exampled one I put up, then you'll notice the flags and what not and how he organized it the way he did with the formatting code. That's what I need.

I'll settle for this :hug:

To do pictures in a factbook, type and fill in the space between them with a link to the picture.

For example, this [img]"http://roflrazzi.files.wordpress.com/2010/10/hurr-durr-derp-face-shakesphurr.jpeg%3Fw%3D500%26h%3D288"[/img]

Becomes this Image

The previous line that has no image also has two quotation marks in it which is why there is no image.

Interesting thread, wish you luck. I am considering creating a wikistate nation from one of my other NS nations.

Ah, as they say, the sincerest form of flattery... :blush:

How about this, I will personally help you get your WikiStates situation sorted out, but not tonight, I gotta crash ASAP. ;)

What you've put your national information on is actually a Userpage - it's supposed to be where you put OOC stuff that pertains to your actual account on the Wiki.

If you want, I'll move everything to an actual article-page...

I concede this case to you, sirrah.

But I'll still show up to correct spelling mistakes once you're done to rub them in your face and make up for my self-esteem as a result of my own Grammar Nazi inability.

BBcode won't help you at all with a wiki, just in case that wasn't already clear.

First: baws is/means balls in "Scottish Vernacular" :blush:
Secondly, view viewtopic.php?f=23&t=13419 for ideas.

I dunno about Wikistates...

I would suggest using NSwiki.net instead :P

It seems to be simpler
