Sups Joe. long time no see :) Hope u're doing good
I dunno if i asked this before, but was wondering how to put the Popular Blog Posts and Forum posts together in a template on the main page... or will i have to put 2 templates in different places for it? I need ur help, please :)
For forum posts, you can enter <wikiaforum /> which will display the five most recent posts and look like this.
For the blog posts, you can use the <bloglist> </bloglist> tags. The bloglist feature is customizable, allowing you to adjust the appearance, what's displayed and how it's displayed. See Help:Blogs/Bloglist for all the details. You mentioned "popular" blog posts, so in that case, you would set the order parameter to comments (example: order=comments), which should display the blog posts that have the most comments. If you'd rather only display the most recent blog posts, set the order parameter to date (example: order=date). I encourage you to try out the different customization options if you're curious about seeing them in action. Let me know if you have any questions or run into any trouble.
i tried my luck here. just wondering, is there any other way to make them both look similar? i mean, the forum one is in a gray box, while the blog can either be without a box, or with a white box. i'm totally fine with it this way though, as it looks good to me, but just wondering :)
- remember the yellow-orange line with plates on both ends here between the "search bar" and the "featured pic template"? since darwin was implemented, we didn't know what to do, since depending on the resolution, the line can be really small, especially in the "recent activity" and articles. it used to cover the whole width before. so i'm just wondering,,, is there anything that can be done for that? r there codes for specific resolutions or something?
I updated the CSS, so now the image displays the full width of the content area on normal pages and the wiki activity page. I also made a slight change to the main page so that the image displays correctly there too. Let me know if you see any problems.
It seems this new update to displaying that custom line image is affecting more things than I expected, but no worries. Keep telling me whenever you find other places that need fixing, and I'll keep fixing them.
But I need your help on my wiki, the Blue Bomber Graphic Wiki, if you don't mind. Specifically, I need help with the wallpaper; I have an image that I want to add on the wallpaper, but I don't know anything for the background. Maybe something like a beam of light-blue is in the middle while the top and bottom of the wallpaper is regular blue. As for the Mega Man picture, maybe somewhere like the right?
I merely ask of you to help me, as I saw your work on the wallpaper back at Mobius Encyclopaedia. If you don't want to help me, it's alright. But, if you are willing, do you mind if you help me please?
Although, I don't know if staff can actually change the background of any wiki, so if you do make a wallpaper, just change it right away with the colors that match it best. Thanks!
Hi BlueSpeeder. If you would like me to help design a new background image, please go to this requests page and click the "Add your request" button to add yours to the page. I should be able to help you next week. :)
Yo! it's me again! Sorry I came to you for more help. You see I was made an Admin of the Kurobas Wiki and I wanted to change the design/look of the site a bit. I saw the nananinnomajo wiki and they had this awesome page which looks like a notebook. I was thinking of doing the same thing to the Kurobas wiki but a little differently. I was thinking of making the page look like this. Do you see how the page is set out as a paper on a paper holder? I was thining of doing that to the Kurobas wiki. I already edited the image I would like to apply to the wiki here (it's on dropbox so the download of the image will start). I would like to put that at the top of the page so that it doesn't overlap with the text (including the logo and menu) and then the rest of the page would be the white space below. I wasn't sure what the width of the wiki page was but I guessed it would be 1075px??
I want to ask you if something like this was possible to do. Since they have it on nananinnomajo wiki I think it would work with the right codes. What do you think?
You'll need to upload the image to Kurobas Wiki, then insert the image's direct URL into the CSS code where you see http://. To get the image's direct URL, go to its file page and click on the image. The only thing you'll see on the screen is the image, and the URL on your browser at that time is the image's direct URL.
I previewed using both methods, and the second option (displaying the image in the content area) definitely looked better than the first option.
I uploaded a screenshot here showing how both options would look.
So it's not possible to have the image of the holder before the logo and menu instead of behind it?
Also, is the image the correct width for the wiki page?
I forgot to mention this in my previous comment. Now that Wikia uses a fluid layout, the width of the content page varies depending on the size of the user's browser window and/or screen resolution. In the CSS code I posted, the background-size setting would force the clipboard image to stretch the full width of the page, regardless of how wide the user's browser is.
That said, keep in mind that my monitor's resolution is 1920 pixels wide, so the clipboard image seen on my screenshot is being stretched more than it would on a smaller screen.
Hi, sorry looks like I have another problem I need help with. I can onl rely on you :P Ok so I have no idea what is wrong with my image gallery on my profle page here. In my image gallery (under the anime section) I have Anime screenshots, OP/ED and then Teiko at the top. But it doesn't work how it's supposed to. 1 image gallery is supposed to be in each of these but now they are all together. I have no idea how to fix this. Could you help me?
Is it fine if I just copy your test page?? it's perfect! Just what I need. Ah and no, I would be afraid to change something in the codes without the Admin's permission so I think I'll use the one you made. And yeah I did copy it from my other wiki where it works. Thanks a lot Joe! You saved me yet again!
