Can someone create the coding for the sidebar for this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coptic_Or ... Alexandria

I want to use it for a Christian church for my nation.

To insert an image you need to either find the URL to an image online and place it within the [img][/ img] (remove the space after the slash to make it work), or save an image and upload it to a photo sharing website (eg. Tinypic, Photobucket, Imgur), where you can resize the image. The website will give you a link so you can post it in your factbook.

whew I'm late on checking this thread
But for whoever's reading, factbooks don't support embedded audio, so you're gonna have to link to a Youtube or SoundCloud or Google Drive track

For example:
Code: Select all
[b]Anthem:[/b]
[url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKJ1unY1FF4]Taploukku Kaunis[/url]
[size=90]"Taploukku the Beautiful"[/size]

A little late, but for the tables, is it possible for them to be side-by-side the sidebar, instead of the table being sent down to the bottom of the sidebar?

My Climate table went way too far to the bottom, which I think I can rectify with more words on top.

I only just saw this, but hey, thanks, Yohannes!

Much appreciated! I'll implement that when I have the time, and of course, due credit to ya.

EDIT: Due to the long names, I decided to put the sidebar all across the entire thing.

As you can see, my table of contents is too long. Could someone please help me fix it?
Like any other non-puppet, non-alternate nation, this nation does represent my views, at least to an extent. Every factbook on NS is (supposed to be) OOC.
Please keep that in mind when using factbook info IC-ly. IC year is RL year +28.

Looks fine to me. Although I noticed your legislature factbook page could use some work. Try this: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=456129
Then it's a lie. Everything Fox News says is a lie.

Oh yea, I saw that template of yours. I might use it, but I'm working on different stuff one at a time. As for my table of contents, Ponderosa's seems to be of sensible length, while mine stretches from one end of the screen to the other. Why is that?

Ponderosa used a box, and used the [floatleft] code on the box containing the table of contents. Try that, and if it doesn't work, tg me your entire factbook code and I'll see what I can do.

Call this a bump, so here's mine so far. Best viewed on a Desktop version.

https://www.nationstates.net/nation=val ... /id=940192

Due to the nature of my long names, I ditched the idea of a sidebar and instead made the whole thing centered by itself.
