Hiya, I created a page for Wales, but it isn't as nice and pretty as Ohio. Can you explain how to get a link to a map like Ohio has? I clicked edit on Ohio to see if I could just snag the code and move it over but that was confusing to me to say the least!
You are due a LARGE COMMENDATION for your edits and your ability to pick up on wiki code. Would I possibly be able to ask for your help with some of the wiki admin duties. I'd give you access to the email address/password ... and it's a matter of adding user info to the tables (and you've clearly mastered that) and doing 3 things when I get a "Someone new joined RAOGK ..." and that's a matter of copying pasting only. Nothing as involved as what you've already mastered!!
Sorry for the delay, but I've finally set up your forums. If you want each forum page to show archives as well, I can do that, but I'll hold off for now. I also recall you were curious about how my userpage is styled - the code can be seen here.
I know you're an intern ... would guess you're heading back to school soon? Will you still be around on wikia to ask for help?
Another question ...
On Thurstan's talk page, his talk topics appear "indexed" (collapsed) vs. the way my Message Wall topics are appearing here. Can you ask Danny if the Message Wall has the ability to list by Contents as the Familypedia Talk Pages do? Or, maybe you know the magic coding to give me to make it happen??
Were you there? Oh, I'm soooo sorry I didn't get to meet you!
While we're talking ... could you look at Thurstan's talk page on Familypedia and tell me what's wrong with my code above that I'm not getting more of a space between the small purple box and the outer edge of the larger powder blue cell??
Margie, that list of options looks as if it should be on an easily accessible page somewhere, with numbered options and solutions. Maybe it now is; if not, perhaps we can work out how to do it. -- Robin Patterson (Talk) 09:35, May 27, 2012 (UTC)
(1) Edit the Alabama page, and add [[Category:Alabama| ]] at the borrom.
(2) Click on the the Alabama link, where is says "Category:Alabama" at the foot of the page. I am invited to create the category page. I actually copied the text I had put in the Category:Texas page, and changed the state name. The main thing is tp have [[Category:USA]] at the end. The other explanatary text is optional.
So now the "USA" category contains the "Alabama" category which contains the "Alabama" page.
Just to complicate things, any page or category can be in as many categories as you like, but we don't need anything very complicated here. The point of the categories is to enable users (both the ordinary contributors and the administrators) to navigate through groups of related pages.
This thread appears in the category because you typed "[[Category:USA]]" without using "nowiki" to escape it. The fix would seem to be to edit this page, but that doesn't seem to be allowed. Perhaps you need to "Ask Wikia" to get it fixed.
Source mode is "misbehaving" ... on the Category:Michigan page I'm getting the following (not putting in brackets or braces):
This Help:Category|category is for pages about the US state of Delaware
On a Michigan state page, it won't display the Category:Michigan "template" in Source mode. The only way I can get a Category on the page is either in Visual mode ... or on the actual page go to the bottom and click the Add Category button.
So, given that ... if I have another multipage state ... Missouri ... I'd add use either Visual mode/editor or the Add Category button on the Missour page to put in Category:Missouri first and then follow that with Category:USA???? Will that give me what you did with Delaware?
on second thoughts, I think you can edit you own messages: so go back and edit the one that starts Ok ... you're right. If you "edit" it (in "source" view?) you should see the string "[[Category:USA]]".
Replace it with the string "<nowiki>[[Category:USA]]</nowiki>".
Have you checked your Preferences to see if there's something about WYSIWYG or Visual Editor? I always use the "source" option on Wikia sites, never the WYSIWYG, as far as I am aware (though I can see some "Visual"-type buttons below this editing box!), and I don't have to change anything, so I think it's in the Preferences. Top right in the drop-down below your user name.
