Wiki Templates

Postby Arturus » Mon Jul 06, 2020 9:03 am

Hello World!

I was adding items to the wiki, mainly focusing on updating the beastiary and items. I started using templates to help keep the information uniform and thought I would post these here. I think it would be good to have standard templates for updating data. This will help keep the wiki clean and organized. Here are the templates I am using so far.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Template - Adding a NPC
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Code: Select all

[[File:FILENAME]]

'''Description'''

<ENTER DESCRIPTION>
----
'''Location'''

<ENTER LOCATION>
----
'''Loot Table'''
* [[ENTER LOOT TABLE ITEM]]


  • I first upload an image of the NPC that I create from examining the NPC. I upload images using this link: https://ember-online.com/wiki/index.php/Special:Upload
  • Next, I add the description from the examine action. I found I can copy and paste from the examine window in game. I add this text to the description.
  • Next, I add the location where the mob can be found. Typically I try to include links that reference back to the atlas page in the wiki: https://ember-online.com/wiki/index.php/Atlas
  • Finally, I add any items that I find the mob has a chance to drop. I create these as links so when the item pages are created, they will be cross-referenced.

Here is an example of an NPC I added. https://ember-online.com/wiki/index.php/Mosquito

Code: Select all

'''Description'''

The mosquito is huge, with a wingspan of two feet. Its black body seems disproportionate to the tiny head. The buzzing sound it makes as it approaches drives fear down your spine.----
'''Location'''

Mosquitos can be found in the [[Atlas#Canopia_Forest_.26_Logging_Camp|Canopia Forest]] and along [[Atlas#Journeyman.27s_Road|Journeyman's Road]]

[[NPC'S THAT DROP ITEM]]<br>


  • I first upload an image of the Item that I create from examining it. I upload images using this link: https://ember-online.com/wiki/index.php/Special:Upload
  • Next, I add the description of the Item from the examine action. I found I can copy and paste from the examine window in game. I add this text to the description.
  • Finally, I add the NPC's that drop the item. I create these as links back to the NPC's pages. If you include the <br> tag after the link, it neatly places the next NPC name on the line after.

Here is an example of an item I added. https://ember-online.com/wiki/index.php/Venom_Gland
