    In the FAQ linked above, it says

    Question: My adventure logs are really long, and the main Adventure Log tab page is huge! How do I break up my logs, so just a short version is seen on the tab, and people can click to read more?

    Answer: The Adventure Log pages have built in support for this feature. Add the following code where you want the brief version to leave off, and the link to read the rest to appear. Note that you must replace the parenthesis below with left and right brackets (<>) to make this work. Unfortunately, the correct code in copy-and-paste form won

    Except that this board doesn’t work the same way that the wiki pages do and I can’t figure out how to make — show up as two hyphens. Hmph. It works in wiki pages though.

    I have a big question about the campaign limit. Let's say I have Ascended membership and i have 5 campaings saved but my membership ends and for any given reason I can't upgraid againg for a while (I don't have money and I'm not working right know for example) what happens to the extra campaigns? since the normal membership limit is only of 2, do they get erased? or do they just stay there and I can't add more until I'm ascended again? thanks for anyhelp in advanced and happy gaming everyone.

    All your campaigns will remain but you will be unable to create any more & only able to modify your newest two campaigns. Your other campaigns will eventually get deleted after sitting for quite awhile. But you always have the option of downloading your work/campaign from the edit this campaign setting/page. That way when you re-ascend you can just upload your work.

    Well although Age of Legends does have some pages with HTML templates & free navigation button graphics, unlike the other sites listed it isn’t a site devoted to being a resource to the OP community. It’s just my own campaign/campaign setting site.

    Hey guys, I just finished the first build on my World Creator project. This creates different planetary information for however many planets you want (it doesn’t make more than 1000. Also, please don’t make 1000 unless you really want 1000, lol). It doesn’t give a whole lot of information just yet, but I will be updating it to include more and do more things. Suggestions are always welcome. The information generated is based off of rules from the GURPS Space book. I don’t know how accurate it is, but there’s a lot of math involved so I’d like to think it’s decently accurate. The page itself isn’t anything special to look at, but it’s still there if anyone wants to use it. You’ll have to be able to unzip files to get at them.

    Anyway I’ve rambled on long enough here’s the link.

    I don't think I've seen this topic within the thread; but does anyone know if it's possible to add a background image to a wiki page? I wanted to try and make the adventure logs for my campaign resemble a newspaper. I had thought of just making an image to serve as a hyper link but that would take a lot more time in PhotoShop than I would prefer to spend.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    I suspect the item you’re looking for is: How can I put a background image behind the content of my wiki page?

    That works. Thanks Arsheesh! It’s been maxed out for months now, and I’d run out of things to make shorter. The only down side is that I can’t upkeep the second post myself, but hey, that’s what you guys are here for. If you’re of a mind to, why don’t you grab the whole Templates section and consolidate it into the second post. That will leave room for additions to the other sections in the first post.

    Now if I can just find that list of things I’ve been wanting to add…

    Calion – my campaign logs are not huge but one of the choices I made to make things easiers to read – is I make a wiki page for each log with the name of the session then extended.

    Example: session 26 is titled Reflections of a Dwarf

    so I make a wiki page and name it session 26 extended: reflections of a Dwarf. The extended log contains the entire log. Then on the main log page all I have is the Session Banner that when you click on it opens a link to the extended session and a 1 to 2 sentence summary which has a link called read more that also links to the adventure log.

    Just some input on wiki design. When i was designing Project Morphogenetic i thought i would include a sidebar on the left. I eventually took it out in favor of a more condensed navigational bar. Reason being we moved up north (wayyyy north)r where internet blows and right now i am typing from my spouses tiny netbook and it cuts off sidebars like the ones in Killervp's wikis. This is hilarious because during the time the sidebars where on my wiki another PC was using the same type of laptop so he probably never even saw them. Moral of the story: check your wiki on your players laptops to see if they are seeing what you create.

    Invictus, I dropped the sidebar myself because I discovered that is moved from browser to browser and never worked right with my iphone. I think the final look worked out but I really miss the sidebar.

    I was having the same problem on my iPad, could not view the sidebar. Also, my custom background was showing up as the topmost layer on the page, so all my info was being covered with the image, and unaccessible. I finally removed the image, choosing the OP basic black background. The sidebar is now for convenience only, and all links can be found elsewhere, either on the home page, or on the main wiki page (or sub-wiki menus). Sure, it is a little more effort to find a couple of items, but nothing is inaccessible now.

    This isn’t in the Textile reference, so I think it should be added here: Use --- (three dashes) to make a horizontal rule.

    Not sure where to post this. I have an EXP trackbar that some folks have asked me about. Here is a link to the code, on my Kudos (acknowledgments) page.

    I have a problem I hope you guys can help me with. I would like all the available entries in my Wiki to show up by default when I click on the Wiki tab rather than having to click the "Show All" link on the right hand sidebar. How can I do this, is it possible?
  13.  

    Unfortunately I don’t know of an easy way to do that. You’d pretty much have to hand create links to everything. Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful.

    Unfortunately, there’s no easy way to change the default links. What you CAN do easily is put a link to the page that comes up when you click “show all” on your main wiki page.
    Just click “show all” and copy the URL to the page that comes up. You could even put that link on your main page if you want to cut down even further on how many clicks it takes to get there.

    That’s my best suggestion, I’m afraid.

    How do you add tags to characters? If go to the edit character page, type something into the tag field and hit enter, the page reloads but the tag doesn't stick. The same happens if I use the save button at the bottom of the page. Is this a bug (I haven't noticed anybody else mention it so far) or am I missing something?

    Instead of hitting ‘enter’, type a comma after every tag.

    The tags don't update even if I only add one at a time. I tried adding a comma after the one tag I did attempt to add though, and it still doesn't work.

    In the reforged feedback thread, I just saw a a dev note that tags aren't working properly on some sections of the site, so I am going to assume it's bugged for now.
