Starting a FFXIV wiki in the wiki guides sectionFollow

#1 Mar 16 2011 at 9:21 AM Rating: Excellent
I intend to make a version of my Thaumaturge guide on the wiki but I'm having a problem starting. I need to create a catagory on the main Category:Guides(FFXIV) section but when I go to the 'Edit' all I am presented with is:

{{FFXIV}}Category:Guides

...and all the catagories that are shown on the 'View' tab are gone - it is blank underneath.

I am clearly doing something wrong here but after reading through all the help files I either can't see anything or just keep missing it.

I am trying to create 'Edy's Guide to Thaumaturgy' under 'E' before the 'Equipment Guide' on that same page and then wish to go in and start editing it. Can someone help me get started?

Ah, ok, what you do is just create the page in the wiki under any good name. Thaumaturge 101 (FFXIV) is a suggestion but you can use whatever works. Then, in the page, at top or bottom, put {{FFXIV|g}} and that will add the page to both the FFXIV and Guides (FFXIV) categories for you.
