Dragon cave wiki

110 posts in this topic

There was a topic about this a while ago, it disappeared so I'm re-making it.

 

Basically the DC wiki is a site made by fans that is dedicated to giving information about dragons, spriters, and history. so if you do not wish to have spoilers i recommend you not go here.

you should not use tiny-urls for permanent links!

I'm 99% certain that the tiny-url is because the real url gets mutilated by this forum.

 

That said, we have a working one for the front page over in the fansite list: http://tiny.cc/DCWiki

yep the tiniurl is because it converts the coding to HTML when i post the actual link. and thank you for pointing out that it is broken, i must have copied the wrong thing.

 

also we have a banner! i'll have it up in a sec.

Sorry for the double post, but i have a couple anouncements:SH172 (or more commonly known as SlowHornpipe172) is now an administrator. i have chosen her because she is very active and and has a good knowledge of dragon cave's history.

 

Also Bluesonic1 has promoted me to bureaucrat status. I will try my best to keep the wiki in order and keep vandalisms at a minimal as well as try and help anyone with editing who should ask for it.

 

edit: Name fail.

The wiki just keeps getting better. Navigation especially has improved (redirects, redirects, redirects!) so it should now be even easier to find what you're looking for.

what do you intend to add? i think i may have figured it out but i have no idea what to put there.

 

edit: alright, if you want to add an info box you add the folowing script:

{{Infobox|Box title = (BREED NAME HERE)|image = File:(IMAGE FILE NAME HERE)|imagewidth = (IMAGE WIDTH HERE)|caption = (IMAGE CAPTION HERE)|Row 1 title = Release Date|Row 1 info = (RELEASE DATE HERE)|Row 2 title = Rarity|Row 2 info = (RARITY HERE)|Row 3 title = Color|Row 3 info = (BREED COLOR HERE)|Row 4 title = Breed specific action|Row 4 info = (BSA HERE)}}

that was a tough one to figure out.

sorry for the double post agin but there is something that needs to be seen by as many people as possible:

 

in the following weeks there is a LOT planned:

1) infoboxes will be added to all articles

2) i will be out of town nearly non-stop until july 17th.

3)SH172 will also be away from the fifteenth until the 4th. during this time carnivourous M. will be temp.

 

when everyone is back all the images will be re-named and replaced so they are easier to find. (seehere for more info.) At the moment that is all.

lol, the more popular it gets, the more info seems to be put up. so with around 300-400 readers the info is usually pretty accurate.

I love this wiki, its really useful. The only flaw is that the "Dragon of the week" has been the same for months, LOL! xd.png

yeah that's being worked on, in fact, I'm using this post to teach someone how to code it without the code taking effect.

 

---

 

I put it to the ice dragon's specifics, everything between two tildes is specific to the dragon.

 

1. Find what dragon you are going to use

2. Click on the adult sprite, a window will come up and it will say the file name in the header

3.copy the exact file name (including capitalization)

4.paste it above the four hyphens to the format:

[[File:~Ice Adult.gif~]]

5. Under the four hyphens put the breed description with four apostrophes on both ends (Bold and italics)

6. put "Check out its breed article Check out its breed article [[~Ice_Dragons~| here]]!" after the description with the article name in the url boxes.

7. Save.

 

If you screw up you can go to "history", click edit, and copy/paste it back and try again.

i'm kind of unhappy about the new layout of the wiki site...it's glitchy too.i can't scroll down a page with my arrow keys and at random times when i'm reading something,the page likes to suddenly rush up back to the top.and it is kinda harder to find things now...i liked the old layout better.it didn't look quite so cramped and strange.

I went to check this site out but I got this when I clicked on the Front Page link:

 

Sorry, we weren't able to locate that URL.

 

Just a heads up smile.gif

here's the link: http://dragcave.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon_Cave_Wiki

 

if that still doesn't work then try going to google,type in "Dragcave wiki" and click the first result.

 

if THAT doesn't work...then i don't know what to say...the site might be glitching worst than i thought or something might just be wacky.

The layout change was something Wikia implemented and is forcing on all of their wikis. I personally dislike it too.

 

As for the first post link, it appears to have a typo in it, which I fixed.

Don't know yet whether or not I like the changes on the Wiki, but I cannot find the page with the release dates for all the dragons that was there a week ago. I am putting together a personal page on the all the dragons, and wanted to include the release dates. There was a lot of basic data there, including the 10/10/10 release, and all of TJ's logos for each release. Has this page vanished with the changes? unsure.gif

 

ETA: I finally found it but not under a search for release dates. The title for the page seems to be Dragon Release Timeline. Why it didn't come up under search is a little odd. blink.gif
