Editing Tips

Many of the sections of this wiki - such as Quick Characters, Charms and so forth - have premade templates which should be largely self-explanatory. Just login to Wikidot.com, follow the instructions, and save your results - and you should have a wiki entry listed in the correct section. If you want a more in-depth explanation of how wiki code works, you can look it up in the Wiki Text Quick Reference and the Code Snippets Collection (conveniently, these links are also provided below each editing window). Here are the code snippets most relevant to the templates:

Headers

Headers follow this format:

+ Header
++ Sub-Header
+++ Sub-Sub-Header

and so forth.

Bold and Italic text

Bold and Italic text follows this format:

**Bold** and //Italic// text follows this format:

Page links

Sometimes you will want to refer to an external website, such as Wikipedia. This uses the following format:

Sometimes you will want to refer to an external website, such as [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exalted Wikipedia].

At other times you will want to refer to a page within this wiki, such as Quick Characters. This uses the following format, using the page name:

At other times you will want to refer to a page within this wiki, such as [[[Quick Characters]]].

However, the wiki has been divided into a number of sections to make it easier to organize and filter individual pages. While this makes it easy to submit a page via one of the forms and have it show up in the correct location, it also means that you will have to add a prefix to the page name when creating the link. Look at the URL of a page listed within a section to get the prefix. For example, Quick Characters pages all have the prefix "qc:". Thus, the code for linking to Ninja Assassin would look like this:

Thus, the code for linking to [[[qc:Ninja Assassin]]] would look like this:

Finally, sometimes you want to display a different text at the link than the page name of the linked page. For example, to link to those ninjas you would use this code:

For example, to [[[qc:Ninja Assassin | link to those ninjas]]] you would use this code:

Adding Images

This is primarily useful for the Maps section, but might find other uses as well (such as character illustrations). Follow these steps:

  1. After creating the page (with as much or as little text as you want), save it.
  2. Click on the "Files" button at the bottom of the page and upload your image.
  3. Use the following format to insert the image where you want it on the page:
[[image imagename.jpg]]
