Just a heads up, if you'd like to experiment with editing pages (as I noticed some added and removed edits over on the conventions cateogry, I recommend doing so in the WikiFur:Sandbox, so that no "live" pages on the site are affected. --Dmuth 19:22, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Please don't recreate topics I've deleted. If you have a problem with my deletion, please tell me, but don't recreate it. You did this with "Category:Whatever," and the reason I deleted it was because it could encompass literally anything, and was therefore nonspecific. Thanks. :) --Verix 20:52, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
How do I add an article to a category?
Hi I wish to add an article to a category but the edit feature only allows me to edit the top portion of the page. I tried * name of category and that places link in wrong place. I tried [[category:whatever]] and that puts link at bottom of page and not as article. Please I looked all over the help section and found nothing usefull for this problem. --Lupinelonewolf
- First, check to make sure what the name is. Sub-categories are named differently than categories.
- Then ,after you've found the categories you want the article placed in, type
- For more than one category, you will have to type each one in as a seperate [[category]] tag. 'kay? -- MelSkunk 20:56, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
- You can also link to a category by putting a : in front, like this: [[:Category:People]] --GreenReaper(talk) 21:09, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I understand what you are saying but I am having difficulty trying to place that link into the section labled "articles" in this Category, rather the link is being placed above in a non related portion of the page
I am trying to place a linkie to Anthrofest which is a con in Canada next yr in August and is not listed yet under conventions. Furry Wiki has good exposure and the hope is that people take notice of the unfamiliar name to many and attend. Every time though that I try to post it it puts the link in the wrong place. I want to put the link Under A and right after Anthrocon in the A category on the conventions page.
So I went to the edit section of that page and I guess that portion of the page is protected or something because I cannot get my link to go where I want it. As for the whole "whatever issue I was following advice I found in greenreapers usertalk and somehow a "furfright" ended up in the F like it should have and thus I was trying to repeat that. I think now I realize that what happened was someone saw what I was doing and I did it incorrectly and so they obliged me and did it themself. I appologize for that but still am confused as to add to that "article" portion of the "conventions" page.
- Ahh, I see. The thing you have to understand is that you do not edit the category page to put an article into the category - you edit the page that you want to put into the category. In this case, you would edit the Anthrofest article . . . but that article doesn't exist, so you should click that red link to create it. Try just putting a few words (and a link if you have it) and then [[Category:Conferences]] at the end. You should see a link to Category:Conferences appear at the bottom, and when you save that page, it will appear in Category:Conferences, as you intended. --GreenReaper(talk) 21:58, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
RE: Anthrofest Article
I notice you are editing the Anthrofest Article at the moment. Here's a few things to bare in mind:
- At the moment I can see you are slowlly learning how to make the article. That's ok, though I recommend putting the green template listed here to show that you are working on the page and its not done yet. See WikiFur:Boiler Plate Text for details on inserting templates in to your pages. You should also put a Logo Template on the description page of image you uploaded, you can see that listed here.
- Also, you might want a handy feature to help you shrink that logo down. When you insert an image, you can insert instructions on how to show it. So to make it nicely presented, try this code:
- [[Image:anthrofest.jpg|thumb|right|200px|The Anthrofest Logo]] – This suprisingly enough, frames the imge, puts it on the right, shrinks it to 200 pixels and adds a caption like this:
- If you want to test if your code worked remember, click Show Preview rather than save. It will show you want the page will look like and put the edit box back at the bottom of the page so you can continue your edits.
- Finally, don't forget to write a little of course about this event and put a Stub template on (see the template pages above) to let others find and expand your article later.
Happy editing. :)
- Yes, PLEASE do not make a page that simply links your logo to another website. Articles that simply redirect readers outside WikiFur are not appropreate, and is against the general policies of use for a Wikicities Wiki. -- MelSkunk 01:11, 21 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Hi, I checked out the help here and at nidonocu's help page and I do not see info on how to make an image into an HTML link. Do you know how to do this?
I want the picture to go to a web site. --Lupinelonewolf
- Hi there! I'm sorry, but we've had to disable externally-linked images due to people using them to link to offsite graphics that weren't theirs. As a side-effect, it is no longer possible to do what you want to do, because you have to link images in the external link style to make a html link out of them (even if they reside on this server).
