Rewen's Guide to Pretty Articles

Dictionary Definition

Begin most articles with a dictionary definition. Bold the article's title like so:


Mage is one of the four base classes in Shadowbane.

Magic Words

Put these in an article's code to produce the listed effect.

Switch Description
__TOC__ Places the page's TOC at the word's position.
__FORCETOC__ Forces the TOC to appear in its default position. Can be used anywhere on a page.
__NOTOC__ Suppresses the appearance of the page's TOC. Can be used anywhere on a page.
__NOEDITSECTION__ Hides the "edit" links normally beside all headings on the page. To hide the edit link beside a particular heading, specify the heading using e.g. an HTML tag rather than with the usual wiki equals-signs syntax.
__NEWSECTIONLINK__ On non-talk pages, adds a "new section" link as a means to add a new section to the page.
__NONEWSECTIONLINK__ Removes the "new section" link (the add-new-section link) on talk pages.
__NOGALLERY__ Replaces thumbnails on a category page with normal links.
__HIDDENCAT__ Makes a category hidden when included on that category's page.
__INDEX__ Instructs search engines to index the page.
__NOINDEX__ Instructs search engines not to index the page.
__NOTITLE__ Removes an article's main title header.

Change how Titles Look

Replace the carat (^) with the actual title in the article.

Title Magic variable Changed title
Lorem ipsum dolor {{DISPLAYTITLE:Lorem ''ipsum'' dolor }} Lorem ipsum dolor

Lorem ipsum dolor sit {{DISPLAYTITLE:Lorem ''ipsum'' doTemplate:Hlor sit}} Lorem ipsum dolor sit ← (invalid change, as capital "L" does not match original)

SPAN and DIV Styles

CSS tags can be used in this wiki. SPAN is an inline element, and DIV is a block element, but both of them share formatting tags.

Separate the tags below with semicolon within the quotes: <span style="[tags here]">[formatted text]</span>
