Magic Words BASEPAGENAME and ROOTPAGENAME

2
Robkelk (talkcontribs)

Hi! Spreading the word about this one - I had to explain it to Looney Toons, too.

There are two different Magic Words that point to pages further up a category tree: BASEPAGENAME and ROOTPAGENAME. BASEPAGENAME returns the page name up to but not including the final slash, while ROOTPAGENAME returns the page name up to but not including the first slash. If you want to autoinclude the category for a particular work, you want ROOTPAGENAME, not BASEPAGENAME.

For example:

  • Page = Babylon 5/Recap/Film (which I picked because we use both Magic Words in the footer)
  • ROOTPAGENAME = Babylon 5
  • BASEPAGENAME = Babylon 5/Recap

Thanks for the tip!

Smooth, dude, smooth. Way to convince another admin by acting like a grown-up.

Selfcloak, check this user's history -- especially his interactions with RobKelk -- before considering his request. That is, assuming that him acting like a petulant 10-year-old demanding more candy doesn't tell you enough.

Based on Mohamed Saed's behavior in his message alone, I'm going to say no.

Before you move a Work page for capitalization of a preposition...

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

... please check whether the preposition is or is not capitalized in the actual work name.

I've moved "Alone on the Water" back to "Alone On the Water - the title has an uppercase O on both LiveJournal and FFN.

SelfCloak (talkcontribs)

Ok, noted.

Your image is fine. For other images you want to change, it would be better to suggest it in the talk page first.

Jade Shauni (talkcontribs)

Okay, I'll try to not make the same mistake, thanks SelfCloak.

Hey there, thanks for helping clean up the page. The first 2 quotes are from different scenes - they are not talking to each other - that is why I separated them with a line. I wanted the quotes to provide the context for the show - the 2 main characters expressing opposite wishes. I wasn't sure how best to achieve this result - any suggestions? The way you have done it implies that they are talking with each other, which they are not.

Cheers

SelfCloak (talkcontribs)

I didn't watch the show, so I wasn't sure about the quotes. Usually, quotes from different scenes are formatted that way:

{{quote|''"First quote"''|'''Character 1'''}}

{{quote|''"Second quote"''|'''Character 2'''}}

Irisu Syndrome Image Question

Jade Shauni (talkcontribs)

Hey, can I upload a new image for the Irisu Syndrome (Darth Wiki)? Since I'm fixing, tweaking, and cleaning some of the pages. I'm wondering do you and some of the other higher ups have something else in mind, if you do, I'll won't put it up.

SelfCloak (talkcontribs)

What will be the new image?

Also, I fixed the link for the image that was already there on the page.

Jade Shauni (talkcontribs)

I didn't upload it earlier, because just in case we already have one that's ready to go. I don't want to upload doubles or files that won't be use. The main page for the game also needs some fixing.

SelfCloak (talkcontribs)

If you think the new image is better, then you can go ahead and upload it.

Jade Shauni (talkcontribs)

Here is the image, so what do you think? Sorry, it took a while, since I was cleaning it up with shop magic: File:Irisu-Syndrome-2.png

What license should I use? I don't know if this game needs the fair use label.

SelfCloak (talkcontribs)

I uploaded a better quality version of the image. The cleanup looks really bad.

The game is freeware, but I guess the game's creator has the rights to the character.

I feel the title screen would be a better image for the normal version of the page.

Jade Shauni (talkcontribs)

No problem, I should've look for a better image to attempt using photo shop.

Jade Shauni (talkcontribs)

Where you able to log in earlier? A while ago, I was force to leave, because of some weird stuff goings on and I got a message talking about a DDOS attack.

You're right, SelfCloak, the title/menu screen does look better on the normal version.

SelfCloak (talkcontribs)

I'm still logged in. These 503 errors happen from time to time.

Why the reversion on Running Gag? It's not like we didn't inherit all those running gags from TVT. And "Troping Sites" is what the subpage is called.

Edit: Never mind. I didn't see that you had reverted your reversion until now.

SelfCloak (talkcontribs)

I clicked the rollback link by mistake.

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

No problem.

Thanks for Fixing the SM Image

Thank you so much, SelfCloak, for fixing the Sailor Moon image that I uploaded. I didn't grew up with the series. :D

That sounds so much better.

I haven't read the fanfic and I am not familiar with Monster Girl Encyclopedia. I can only offer some help with wiki markup at the moment.

Iii (talkcontribs)

Hi! It's been awhile since we've first talked. Have you read up on monster girl saga? I need all the help i can get to finish that page.

SelfCloak (talkcontribs)
Iii (talkcontribs)

I'll check out the fourms. Also, where can I find your review of the page? The edit history says you reviewed the page.

Iii (talkcontribs)

edit: I ment notifications, not the edit history

SelfCloak (talkcontribs)

Oh that, when I "review" a page, it just means I checked it to see if there is anything that breaks the guidelines. It's not like writing a review.
