hey Tactical, for my school project I'm making a wikia. Now, I'm trying to make something similar to the Episode nav on here, so I copied the subnav group code and navbox new code onto the pages (don't worry i gave credits to you), but it won't allow me to add in a 3rd main group.
Just wanted to give the coding a quick look. And I think I see the problem.
You know those highlight colors, right? Well, after seeing the main group3 coding, it seems it doesn't appear for the group3. That's the problem because it wouldn't respond to the interior template parameters... Maybe it's a bracket placement error? Check where you placed them around the group3 parameter. Perhaps that might be the problem there.
But that was just only my observation there. If you're still stuck, then I suppose I'll look into it deeper.
It's probably because of the loading. The computer needs to acquire all those animated frames so that the GIFs would be working properly. Otherwise the switch template will not function properly because the computer hasn't returned with the image samples.
You can choose to keep using the GIF images, which (again I say), will take a few seconds to load. Or we can just use the static images from the gallery. Either way doesn't make a difference.
Let's see if any eavesdroppers have the same issue as you.
I've already said this on another conversation between Jo and myself, but can I put my input? That actually has nothing to do with the gifs or the switch template, it's just the format. For some reason the switch templates can be format-picky and you have to readjust the source infobox on the source page until you find the one that works. We had the same issue with Clock Circus and it happened on another wiki I edited on too so I made little format changes to the infobox like move the equal sign and such and it got the picture(s) showing up.
I was tinkering in the CSS page in making a new "switch template." I didn't knew the songs were using the tabbers already.
(Great. Now what am I going to do? Should I just go ahead and use tabbers anyways for the new switch template? Or maybe should we just go for the classic way in storing the lyrics by removing their tabber feature?)
In the "classic way," we'd use the table coding and label the columns top to bottom for the Japanese text, romaji, and the English translation. I'd say that would be organized and decorative, since you can colorize the header rows and split sections cell by cell. But problem is that the infobox tables will get in the way. Pfft.
The "tabber way" is well...obviously you use the tabbers for this. It saves room and avoids those nosy song infoboxes from interfering, but it leaves quite some empty space inside the tabber boxes.
Well, what do you think we should do about the broken switch templates then, huh? If we leave it like that, we might as well use only one image at a time then for the infoboxes. But as a matter of fact, we're already using multiple images for the infoboxes via switch template. But with it stuck, how can other users view it now?
And, dunno what was going on that page. It's just categories. Are they still fixed though?
Yes, I can do that. There's a general CSS code that lays down all of the properties of the tabbers and we can choose to tinker it to our own style. All I need to do is hide those tabber borders, make the tab background colors transparent, and maybe I cand replicate the switch template...only by using tabbers. All we need to do now is discuss how we can use the table lyrics style so it doesn't get interfered with the song infobox...
And okay. I'll check the Sagittarius page to see what's going on with the categories.
Anyways, about the lyric format switching thing, yes. In order to fix the broken "switch template," we have to use the tabber over it. But in order to do that, we have to change the song page's lyric format. That's why I propse to use the table format...
One of the other users was confused about the color-coded lyrics and wanted us to put up a key so it's easier to understand who's who. Would you mind coming over here to discuss how we'd go about to doing that?
By far, this has to be the most complicated coding I have ever seen. It's tabber, yes. But I can't figure this out. According to the history, Alwawmo just copied it straight off from the Tokyo Ravens Wiki.
This kind of tabber is somewhat interesting. There's no border, and the text are small as well. It wouldn't be easy to replicate it with just an ordinary tabber. Unless...I just searched the internet the other day and found out that there might be a way to replicate that switch template with the regular tabber.
So I'm considering on building a new "tabber template." Only by using the tabber (again I said). It's much more simpler after all. But it might take me some time. I have a lot of time on my side because I'm only taking one class at the moment. (Which means less homework overload!) So I'll try to see if I can fabricate one to replicate the now-broken switch template.
oh my god. Tbh i wonder how Tokyo Ravens WIki even managed to use this code without having any errors. It's true that i suppose its a good idea to use the tabber template, since you said it'll be more simple, but i would like the more experienced users and the admins to handle the changes, as i'm afraid the new users will kinda mess it up, or i can do it in a time where everyone else is alseep XP
It's great to hear that you got less homework overload! Not like my life over here, our geography teachers insane. We have something due every week even though 4 of them doesn't really matter. What class are you taking?
I'll try to make one. If I can. Maybe in my spare time.
And well, the class I'm taking is the last of my chemistry credits. What's hard about this chemistry is the lab spreadsheet by using Microsoft Excel. It's when I take data from all my lab work and put them on excel so I can answer certain variables. Kinda hard because I don't know which. But good thing that's my only class this
Sorry, I saw dancing diva's promotion with the logo's charm. I cut it but I put different names, again I'm truly sorry because you obviously you have more things to do instead of deal with this. sorry...
So lately i've been wondering if we should add a new section to the rules page. There are some common made mistakes that appear on the wiki and i think it'll be pretty helpful if we could just list them, state why they shouldn't be done, and basically inform the wiki users about it. What do you guys think?
ok I know it's admin only convo here but im taking a huge guess in saying people aren't reading the rules page, half of them are new and it'll take them time to understand finding main pages never mind the rules page.
Maybe you guys should think of giving the new members a highlighted link or something in forums before adding to the rules because unless they see it it won't make any difference
@PrettyMia: I'll think about that too, thanks for the info
@Jo: Yea, basically some stuff like duplicated images and how to find the already uploaded image. Also what's been really peeving me is the anime category. We could post a link to the general rules page of the main page as a suggestion for people, especially for newcomers, to help them edit and stuff.
Besides that, we can wait until everyone else is caught up and stuff
welcome Mia. ok i actually totally agree with what she says, as people just go straight to editing something most of the time, and i suppose none of us likes going through the rules unless we get warned.
ugh i sure am superb busy wifth life.. because school ends mid june, the school has decided to squish ALL our assesments before 30th may.. I shall give you a list of what i have TTATT XD
1. chinese writing assessement next week 2. english short story script adaptation 3. english 5 minute speech about something 4. english play performance 5. maths trigonometry test next week 6. science report due next sunday 7. PE written task due next sunday 8. drama production worksheet due next sunday 9. visual arts portrait due by the end of may 10. geography big big annoying make your own city task 11. history something assessment 12. computer technology mini project
Hey Tactical, Halo's also gonna receive this message so yea. While inserting the cardboxes in (for example) Data Carddass Aikatsu! 2014 Series - Part 2 I double checked it with the official website (HERE) and found out that instead of the classic one Icon on the top right, (see below) they now have 2. I attempted to create a newer version of it by fixing the margins etc. in my own sandbox, (ha cheating by using Inspect Element & View Source) and in order to try to use Visual in Classic, I kinda simplified the codes so it only has 1 input to each cell and no switches yet. Can you check it, and if there is anything to improve, can you help me out? Thx~
P.S. The page is protected only for Sysops so yea~
Okay, I managed to add the second icon, but there is something that I'm concerned of: It's that empty white line on the bottom right corner. I need to figure out how to solve this. So give me some time to figure this out.
