Besides the information on this page, the best way to figure out how to do something is just to go to other wikia sites and see how they did it. You can also visit this page to see the compiled list of Wiki markup.

If you ever have some trouble or don't know what to do, feel free to contact the administrator of the wiki by posting a message on their wall.

Viewing Source[edit | edit source]

On other wikia sites, there might be pages that are locked, so you won't be able to edit them, however, you can still see the "source code" of that site and copy it to achieve the same thing here on Aethernea wiki.

To view the source code, just press the "View Source" button below the name of the page.

You will then be able to see the source code of that page. After finding the part that you are interested in, copy the text. You can then paste it into Aethernea wiki page where you want that element to appear on. Don't forget to switch to source code view before pasting it.

Images[edit | edit source]

Before you can add images into the wikia page, you first need to upload the image by clicking on the image button in the toolbar. After uploading the image, you can name it. This is the name that you will be using to include the image into the page via source code. View detailed info on images and image options.

Code examples for including the image[edit | edit source]

Minimal code to include an image:

[[File:nameOfTheImageAlongWithExtension]]

Other examples:

[[File:nameOfTheImageAlongWithExtension|alignment|size|caption]] 

[[File:SwitchToSourceCodeView.jpg|center|578x170px]] 

[[File:SwitchToSourceCodeView.jpg|170px]] 

[[File:ViewSourceButton.jpg|right|220x220px]]

Links[edit | edit source]

View detailed information about links.

Linking to the internal page[edit | edit source]

You can check whether the page has a namespace by just seeing the URL of the page. If it has the namespace in it, then you should include the namespace when linking to that page.

If the page doesn't have a namespace:

[[NameOfThePage]]
[[Elaru Wayvin]]
[[NameOfThePage|text you want to turn into a link]]

If the page is a part of a namespace:

[[Namespace:NameOfThePage]]
[[Help:Links|click here]]

Info Boxes[edit | edit source]

When you open a character page or a place page, you will see an info box to the right of the page containing basic details of the character or place. Wherever you can write text within the infobox, you can also include links.

Here is a quick list of all predefined infoboxes and how to use them.

Character Infobox[edit | edit source]

Whenever you make a page for a new character, add a character infobox to the page. Here are the code and example for the character infobox.

When you start writing the name of the category, wikia will offer you suggestions on existing categories. You can then pick the existing category, or choose to create a new one if it doesn't already exist.
