Anyone want to discuss on how to layout this wikia?
i.e.: Should card pages be laid out more like Hearthstone gamepedia or Hex wikia , or something else?
Well I got distracted rather than making a logo for the top left, I made a browser icon that appears next to the words in the tab. I have a couple different version of the letter E,(including one that uses a greyish-white instead of white in the center, etc.) but does that look good?
Feels a tiny bit off to me,(maybe I should make it a couple rows smaller?) but it's close enough for now.
I think I got what you meant with the main page appearance. I like the Hearthstone Gamepedia a lot to be honest. Especially the division to heroes, classes and then different cards and mechanics etc. The bullet lists and categories like you said. Relying on a good main page with good navigation feels like a lot better idea than concentrating on the upper navigation bar.
I don't think we're in a hurry with anything. It's not like we have any deadlines or something. :P The browser icon looks really good but I agree that it's a bit off. I'd say that the upmost horizontal line of the E is a bit too long and thin when compared to the lowest one. Can't say for sure but that's the quick impression. The colors are perfect in my opinion.
Probably so. That idea crossed my mind as well but like I said, I'm new to Wikia and was mostly just trying out how things work.
I mean most wikias do that, but in my opinion they end up looking super bad, especially for a card game where you want the image fully displayed.
I agree. While the automatic listing is nice, the lack of control over a part of the page is annoying.
Well I've been looking around how to do the automatic listing thing. Dcl is a method I've found so far, but it only lists out all the pages in a category, so I'm going to see if there's a way around that or another way to do it to better control the page.
It's probably something with Java to be honest, which I'm really hesitant about touching.
Actually I just found arrays. Let me see if I can set a category to be an array.
I started looking into how the templates and tables work in other similar pages (like Heartstone Wikia). Trying to get into the coding side as well so might look into Java at some point as well.
EDIT: Actually... The more I look into this wikia stuff the more I'm starting to think that I'll just use the source editor to make the pages look like I want. The classic editor is nice for adding text quickly but it just lacks any proper control over the outlook of the page.
So, what do you think? Are we aiming at something similar with the front page as Heartstone Gamepedia? With all stuff divided into separate boxes etc.?
There's a source editor in classic and visual mode.
You have to switch to source editor once you're in classic mode by clicking an option. I prefer visual mode source editor, but it reacts weirdly with my browser and crashes occaisionally.
What do you think?
