The code is displayed in a _pre_ tag, which prevents entity references from being parsed down to the client level (the server actually converts the ampersands into entity references themselves, which porks the whole deal). If memory serves, not having it in _pre_ tags causes other issues.
A note has been added about using spans, but the _div_ tags were chosen because the goal was to format the whole page, and common block elements are illegal within a span. Adding default fonts was excluded for simplicity's sake, and is explained in the second link there (the first being to the same font list you linked above).
As previously noted, entity references don't work inside _pre_ tags. Really, the stuff that goes up on the wiki gets parsed and re-parsed so many times that there are some things it's just a pain to do. The thing was never meant to display code, really, so it has some problems there.
You're absolutely correct that players who want to dig into the source will be able to read things hidden in the way described, and I've updated the entry to note this. The original question was in terms of making comments in code and such, since textile doesn't allow for HTML comments.
Edit: Let's add "my page":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/tiers-of-the-shadow-walker/wikis/test-page shall we?
This will style them the same as the wiki links, so if you're making a list of links, your custom ones won't stand out like a sore thumb, and you don't have to hard code the way they look, in case OP ever changes their style.
One more - to disable textile formatting for a section of text, surround it with ==, like this:
==*This text will not be bold*==
Will look to play around with some the other stuff more later.
1. The special tag only works in adventure log posts. It does not work in regular wiki pages at all.
2. The code should be on its own line, and contain absolutely no spaces, and be contained in < > brackets, not ( ) parenthesis.
If i bought an ascendant profile, or more likely, _tried out_ the free trial, what happens to all the extra features when it runs out?
I'm assuming it's up to the end user to backup everything.
None of the templates provided really do the trick, and I'm far too inexperienced to design one myself.
I'm moving from GM in one of my weekly games to being a player in the game, with one of my friends taking over GM duties. Is there any way I can transfer ownership of the campaign wiki to him? Make him the GM instead of me? I'm not an ascendant member.
bq. 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?
bq. 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
