    Creating New Pages (Outdated)

    Contents
    1. Naming the Page
    2. Post New Article
    3. Adding a Template
    4. Filling in the Template
    5. Drops Template and NPC Vendors or Trainers

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Naming the Page
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    1) Each page name has two parts, a namespace, and the article name.

    So in the example page - Creature:Troggy Warrior
    "Creature:" is the namespace, and Troggy Warrior is the article name.

    2) Picking a Namespace

    Location: All Locations in the game
    Creature: All Land-based and Flying Creatures in the game
    NPC: The Non-Player Characters you interact with.
    Companion: Your Companions. Each Companion also gets an NPC page to represent the NPC in the Tavern and when they are participating in quests.
    Ship: This namespace is for all Enemy Ships, all NPC Ships, Equip-able Pirate Ships, and all Ship Equipment.
    Item: For personal equipment, booster packs, online bundles, and Elixirs.
    Ability: For all Pirate Powers, Pirate Talents, and Ship Powers.
    House: For all Housing Deeds and decorative Housing.
    Pet: Mount: and Quest: are for their name-sakes

    3) The article name should be the exact name of the place, item, creature, etc. in game.
    With the exception of Bosses, the randomly generated personal names for Creatures and Enemy Ships will not be used for article names.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Post New Article
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    1) On the Wiki Main Page, select "Post New Article"


    2) Type the full name (e.g. Creature:Troggy Warrior) into the box and select "Start Editing"
    Now you have a blank page ready for content!


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Adding a Template
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    1) Each Wiki article uses a template to make page creation and editing easy!

    For example, the Creature:Troggy Warrior uses the Creature Template.

    2) So if you wanted to make the Creature:Troggy Warrior page, go to the Creature Template and copy all the template code in the box on the right-hand side.


    3) Paste the template into the Page you are making.

    Go to Creating New Pages on the Wiki for easy access to all the templates and links to all their instruction pages.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Filling in the Template
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    1) Read the Instructions for the template (e.g. the content on the Creature Template page)

    2) Fill in as much as you can. Some lines always need to be filled in, others do not.

    3) If you have any questions, ask!


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Drops Template and NPC Vendors or Trainers
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    1) Some pages get multiple templates, but don't worry, this is easy!

    2a) If a Creature or Enemy Ship has Drops to record, you simply copy the code for the Drops Template and put it just below the Creature or Ship Template on the page you already made, easy right?

    2b) If an NPC is also a Vendor, copy the Vendor Template below the NPC Template. If they are a Trainer, do the same thing but with the Trainer Template instead.

    You must contact a Wiki Master to change it.

    Re: Creating New Pages

    Every time that I create a new page, I can fill out everything and it all checks out according to this guide, but then when I hit publish, it erases whatever was in the body and keeps the article itself, saying that there is currently no text on the page. Then when I go back and edit that article, I can put everything in and it keeps my progress, but it creates a duplicate page. What am I doing wrong?

    Re: Creating New Pages

    Whenever I try to make a new page, I always have to check at the top now to see if I'm making an item or a category, but it seems whenever I am about to make an item, it seems it will make a whole new category. How do I change that to just an item?
