  • Heys Xanadu,

    I noticed you and Pinkachu had done a great job by redesigning the class pages! I Wonder I you could consider using tabs instead of section for abilities and talents.

    I referring here to the Warframe Wiki (wich is in my eyes one of the best - if not THE best - organized wikia).  It brings alot more clarity, especially when you have big tables.

    Maybe worth considering ;)

    • Yeah the Warframe wiki pretty much topples almost all other wikis, at least in WAM. I can see why so many aspire to be as amazing as they are. I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to reach that level, but it's definitely going to take some time. They have some serious god code-work on their Wiki and it's going to be a little difficult to try and peel off their code and put it onto our own, but I'll definitely try. I totally forgot about Wf wiki's tabulated form- thanks for the input. I'll talk to Pinkachu about it.

    • Just to show you how much goes into the coding behind their pages:

      Each one of those has their own set of codes that is probably a page long.

    • Unfortunately I'm just procastrinating right now, when I have more time, I can try to put "some thing" together

    • I've been toying around with it on my sandbox: 

      http://xanadusandbox.wikia.com/wiki/Template:AbilityU10.3

      This is what I have so far, but it's not unique enough for use and is just one part of the many, many parts needed to even get to the tabbing stuffs.

    • Somewhere you have to start. As far as I remember the Character overview in Warframe was overhauled I think 2013 so they also needed alot of time and had to re-design it from time to time ;)


      I would help ya with the templates but I have no idea how to put html/css based templates into the wiki

    • Try creating your own sandbox page or sandbox wiki to toy with things like that.

      http://skyforge.wikia.com/wiki/User:Usche/Sandbox

      It's your only little place to tinker with. It doesn't do anything else to the wiki, so you can go ahead and scrabble all over it. 

      Check out these pages to get some help/guidance:

      http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Wikia_University - this is all really basic stuff, but good stuff to know.

      https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki - this is more of the nitty gritty of the coding and what not behind wikia.

    • Before either of you do anything crazy, go look at Warframe on mobile. Its seriously broken in a lot of ways. Tabs and Tabber fall apart in mobile or create pages so long, users have to scroll forever to get to anything. Sandbox your ideas but please make sure they are useable in on a smartphone. Pretty isn't always better and over half of Wikia's total views come from mobile devices. If it breaks in mobile, then I will have to revert it and that sucks for everybody.

      Jeah I'm well aware of that. I think thats because some of the fancy HTML5 stuff hasn't found it's way into the templates design (stretchboxes - nothing more to say)

      but I know the struggle to make a design look decent in every possible resolution / ratio so dont worry ;)


      Cheers Usche
