Rift Template Users Guide  

The Rift Template Users Guide is a detailed analysis of all the tools and templates users can use within the ZAM Rift wikibase. Check out the Table of Contents to the Right to find the Template that can help you best.

  • Rift - {{Rift}}, anywhere on a page, adds the page to Category:Rift-Planes of Telara and displays a nice little box on the right side. This is what we call a Game Tag template

Linkers create links to pages, with additional information, or when we are not sure the page type will stay where it is. Use of linkers is optional. All pages can always by linked to with standard wiki syntax.

  • RiftItem - link to an item and colorize the link based on the rarity of the item
