Help:Quick Reference

From The Urban Dead Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

This page has two purposes: first, to help new wiki users who want to transition into more extensive editing do so, and second, to provide all wiki users an easy-to-use directory of editing tools, organized by role.

Feel free to add to this page if you think an important tool has been left out. When you add a new tool to the list, please use the appropriate format:

Single tools

====Brief descriptive text (''any notes, if necessary'')====
<pre>Wiki commands needed</pre>
([[The page|More information]]) or ([URL More information]) for external links

Multiple equivalent tools

====Brief descriptive text (''any notes, if necessary'')====
<pre>Wiki commands needed</pre>
([[The page|More information]])/([URL More information]) or
<<pre>Wiki commands needed</pre>
([[The page|More information]])/([URL More information]) or (etc)

(This same general format should be followed for the other types as well, when multiple tools need to be categorized under the same heading.)

Links to pages

====Brief descriptive text (''any notes, if necessary'')====
[[The page]] or [URL] for external links

Tools without links

====Brief descriptive text (''any notes, if necessary'')====
<pre>Wiki commands needed</pre>

Be sure that you add new entries to the appropriate subsection below. If there is no appropriate subsection, add one, in alphabetical order. Entries should be alphabetized in each subsection based on the first letter of their descriptive text. When choosing descriptive text, please keep it concise. Descriptions should also be plural (e.g., "Links to other pages," instead of "A link to a page").
