Stubs:

A "Stub" is a wiki article that's known to be incomplete. At ZAM, we mark these with a template: {{stub|fr|Some spiffy message here}}.

If you're looking for something to do in the wiki (and I know some folks are, 'cause they've asked me!), our :Category:FR Stubs is a great place to start. The authors of these articles have placed them in the category because the page needs more information.

If you get the page to a place where it seems complete, you can remove the {{stub}} template, which is usually around the bottom of the page.

Formatting:

  • ''Italic Text'': Will show up as Italic Text.
  • '''Bold Text''': Will show up as Bold Text.
  • '''''Bold & Italic''''': Becomes Bold & Italic.
  • <span style="color: purple;">Change text colors</span>: Can be used to Change text colors
  • <u>Underline</u>: Will Underline things.
  • <s>Strikeout</s>: Will Strikeout text. * <nowiki><big>Big</big>: Makes things Big
  • <small>Small</small>: Will make things Small.
  • <center>Center</center>: Will center justify text,
  • <br>: will create a line break and separate text

Ordered Lists

  • Asterisks and ** Double Asterisks
    • Bullets & Secondary Bullets
  • Hash Marks and ## Double Hash Marks
      • Numbered Lists & Sub Lists
    • Hash Marks and #* Hash Mark-Asterisks
        • Numbered Lists with bulleted sub lists
      • Aserisks and *# Asterisk-Hash Marks
        • Bulleted lists with numbered secondary lists

      Tables

      Tables can be very daunting and complicated, but they can be very useful for organizing lists of information in articles. There are numerous bits of code that you need to be aware of when putting together a table. Basic Table Tags

      • {| and |} : Begin and end a table. Tables can be nested within tables, but doing so can make what is already complicated, even more complicated.
      • |- and | : Will respectively add a new row and a new cell. Note that these tags to not need to be closed if you start each | on a different line. Beginning a new row or cell will close the previous one, and the final closing table tag will close the final row or column tag.
      • ! : Is a special header version of the cell tag, using this tag will bold the text following it, and center it within the cell.
      • |+ : Is a caption tag, any text that is placed after it will be centered above the table, as a sort of title.

      {| border=1
      |+ This is an example table.
      |-
      ! header 1
      ! header 2
      ! header 3
      |-
      | row 1, cell 1
      | row 1, cell 2
      | row 1, cell 3
      |-
      | row 2, cell 1
      | row 2, cell 2
      | row 2, cell 3
      |}

      This is an example table.
      header 1 header 2 header 3
      row 1, cell 1 row 1, cell 2 row 1, cell 3
      row 2, cell 1 row 2, cell 2 row 2, cell 3

      Condensing Table Rows:

      • || : In some cases, a double pipe tag can be used instead of placing each cell tag on a new line.

      Table Styling

      • style="background:black; color:purple" : Adding this after a row or cell tag will change the background and text colors. This example, placed after a row tag will make every cell within that row have a black background and purple text.
      • border=1 : By default, tables do not have a drawn border around them. Adding this tag can help organize information. The numerical value in quotes is a pixel width for the border.
      • width=100% : This tag, placed after an opening table tag, will determine the overall width of your table. The example shown, will force the table to stretch all the way across the wiki article. If the reader resizes their browser, the table will expand and contract to reflect this. You may also specify pixel widths.

      {| border=1 width=100%
      |+ This is an example of an advanced table that is 100% the width of the wiki article.
      |- style="background:yellow; color:grey"
      ! header 1 this row is grey text on yellow
      ! header 2
      ! header 3
      |-
      | width=50% | row 1, cell 1. This column will always...
      | width=150 | row 1, cell 2. this column will always...
      | row 1, cell 3
      |-
      | style="background:white; color:black" | row 2, cell 1
      | row 2, cell 2
      | row 2, cell 3
      |}

      Free Realms Specific Table Formatting

      • Table Definition: {| class="frdialogue" width=98%
      • Recessed Cells| class="recessed"|table item
      • Raised Cells! class="raised"|table item
        • Commonly used as table row headings.

      Adding Images:

      There are 2 ways, external and internal.

      For an externally-hosted image:

      • [[image:http://www.domain.com/whatever/imagename.ext|position|frame|captiontext]]
        • position is optional and can be left,right or center. left is the default.
        • frame is optional but you must use frame if you want to display a caption.
        • captiontext can contain wiki tags
        • You cannot resize an externally-hosted image, but there are no min and max size limits either. PLEASE do not ever link in an image wider than 500 pixels as it messes up the page formatting!

      For an internally-hosted image:

      1. Use the Media tab at the top of the page to upload an image to Allakhazam. After you Commit the image, you will see a box with [[image:12345]] displayed under it. Copy that text!
      2. Edit the wiki page and put the image tag wherever you want it. You may add additional formatting options, as follows:

      • [[image:number|position|size|thumb|frame|captiontext]]
        • position is optional and can be left,right or center. left is the default.
        • size is the max width or height in pixels, followed by px. For instance, 50px would be 50 pixels.
        • thumb tells the system to display a thumbnail of the image, linked to the full-size display. For obvious reasons, size is ignored if thumb is used. Thumbs are always framed and will display captiontext, if used.
        • frame is optional but you must use frame if you want to display a caption.
      • captiontext can be any text you like, and can contain wiki tags. Captions will only display if thumb or frame is used.

      Linking:

      • [[Guidelines]]: Gives you a link to the Guidelines page.
      • [[Guidelines|Clarifications]]: Gives you a link to the Guidelines page, but displays as Clarifications
      • [[Category:Lore]]: Adds the current page to Category:Lore. This does not display anything.
      • [[:Category:Lore]]: Gives you a link to Category:Lore without adding the current page to that category.
      • [[:Category:Lore|Lore]]: Gives you a link to Category:Lore but displays as Lore
      Other Coding:
      • <ref>This is a footnote</ref>
      • [[Yagudo#The Yagudo Theomilitary|The Yagudo Theomilitary]]

      Will take you to a specific heading on the Yagudo article, and will display as The Yagudo Theomilitary

      • [http://www.google.com Google Homepage]

      Will display as Google Homepage and is preferred for making external links.

      • [http://www.answers.com/reference&r=67]

      Will display an inline reference [1] For citing external links. They do not generate footnotes [2].

      These tags will create a footnote. Click the footnote link to jump there, then click the ^ to return here.[3] This does not auto generate a note's list. To make the text within the tags appear on the page you need to add a few bits of code at the end of your article.

      • ==Notes==

      <references />

      This will add a section header for Notes, and will parse everything inside a pair of ref tags into a numbered list wherever you place the references tag.[4] Please, for style and organizational purposes, keep the notes section at the bottom of your article.

      Table of Contents

      By default, the Table of Contents will appear just before the first Header 1. You can force it to appear elsewhere with __FORCETOC__ or prevent it from appearing at all with (placed anywhere in the article). The TOC can also be made to appear to the right with __TOCRIGHT__. These are called "Compiler Directives".

      Creating New Pages

      See Bludwing's Guide: Template:FR

      Free Realms Wikibase™ TR=

      Usage: {{FR|options|option2|nolink=}}

      NOTE: This template should appear somewhere on EVERY Wikibase page that falls within the Free Realms game wiki and does not contain some other template that already places it in Category:Free Realms.

      if options is:

      • "admin", add this page to Category:FR Admin Pages
      • "d", add this page to Category:FR Dictionary
      • "g", add this page to Category:FR Guides
      • "l", add this page to Category:FR Lore
      • "le", add this page to Category:FR Live Events
      • "t", add this page to Category:FR Templates

      option2 is not used by all GameTags. See the specific docs, below, for information.

      if nolink= is not blank, display the tag but add no category links.

      The graphic displayed in the tag should be located at Free Realms (Game Icon), a page that should have the image uploaded to it, and contain the following code:

      {{Icon|Wiki|Game}}

      NOTE: This template calls GameTag to perform the actual display. The documentation you are viewing now can be viewed/edited at GameTag Docs.

      Additional Supported Tags

      • Q=Quest (see Category:Quests)
      • QJ=Quests by Job (see Category:Quests by Job). Auto-magically includes the * QP=Quests by Place (see Category:Quests by Place). Auto-magically includes links for other "by Place" categories to the page. CATEGORY PAGES ONLY!
      • C=Collection (see Category:Collections)
      • CP=Collections by Place (see Category:Collections by Place). Auto-magically includes links for other "by Place" categories to the page. CATEGORY PAGES ONLY!
      • CJ=Collections by Job (see Category:Collections by Job). Auto-magically includes the correct FR JobTag to the page. CATEGORY PAGES ONLY!
      • J=Job (see Category:Jobs)
      • P=Place (see Category:Places)
      • PP=Places by Place (see Category:Places by Place). Auto-magically includes links for other "by Place" categories to the page. CATEGORY PAGES ONLY!
      • GAME=Minigame (see Category:Minigames)
      • TABLE=Minigame Table (see Category:Minigame Tables)
      • GAMETYPE=Minigame Types (see Category:Minigame Types)
      • HELP=Help Pages (see Category:Help Pages}
      • BG=Battle Guides (see Category:Battle Guides}

      If option is CJ or QJ, option2 can be the jobName. This overrides any attempt to slice the jobName out of the PAGENAME.

      If option is QP, CP or PP, option2 can be the placeName. This overrides any attempt to slice the placeName out of the PAGENAME.

      mo= If mo= is not blank, the page is Members Only content and can be found in Category:Members Only and one of the following categories:

      • Q=Quest (see Category:Members Only Quests)
      • C=Collection (see Category:Members Only Collections)
      • J=Job (see Category:Members Only Jobs)
      • GAME=Minigame (see Category:Members Only Minigames)
      • TABLE=Minigame Table (see Category:Members Only Minigame Tables)
      • GAMETYPE=Minigame Types (see Category:Members Only Minigame Types)
      • BG=Battle Guides (see Category:Members Only Battle Guides}

      Other Notes: Collections Notes: Instead of "Collection Name (FR Collection)", use "FR Collection:Collection Name".

      The "FR Collection:" part is called namespace. Don't ever muck with anything from the beginning to the colon ( : ), as it'll mess things up. In non-technical terms (meaning ones I understand), the name space will allow the database and the wiki to find each other when appropriate.

      What Is a Quest Series

      A quest series is a series of quests, usually chained together as pre-requisites, that follow a story or develop a character.

      Stand-alone quests ("One-fers") that are not really part of any series won't go there, unless a set of one-fers fits the definition above (an example from other games might be quests that all raise a particular faction).

      Where do Quest Series Lists Go?

      Until we run across some exception, all quest series seem to be either Job series or Place series. So we're putting them on the appropriate Job or Place page. Use the header

      Quest Series

      to make a nice Table of Contents section. You can use # instead of * on a bulleted list to make a nice numbered list, if you like.

      What about the other quests in a place, the one-fers? You don't have to do anything with these. Putting the place in the {{fr quest}} template properly will automagically list all quests for that page on a category page. Like this one: Category Seaside Quests (FR).

      So, how do I hook them all together with that thing across the bottom of the quest page that shows previous quest and next quest? That thing is our {{series}} template:series. It looks daunting, because it's a global template that is used on all our game sites, but it's really not hard at all. (If you find it confusing, feel free to contact me or any admin to put it in for you).

      The only tricky bit is getting the series page to redirect where we want it. The series page link will be named whatever you put in the quest_series_name field. If, when you have the series template in, the quest_series_name is a redlink:

      1. click the link. You'll get a blank edit page.
      2. add one of the following:
          1. redirect :Category:name (FR Job)#Quest Series (for a Job series) or
          2. redirect FR Place:name#Quest Series (for a quest series at a Place)

      That will automagically direct that link where we want it to go.

      Quests With Mini Games:

      Mini Games are entered into the wiki in a seperate entry from the quest (but linked back).
