Images

Okay, this is not exactly a way to connect submissions together, but it makes them prettier! The gallery is a moody piece of softare, and the syntax is a little bit complicated, but let's take a look:

left square bracket + left square bracket + Image Size + pipe + Image Name + pipe + Alignement + pipe + Alternative Text + right square bracket + right square bracket

Yes, there are two sets of brackets, and several parameters separated by pipes ('|').


So what do all those parameters do?

Image Size - can be 'normal', or 'thumb', for displaying the whole picture or just a thumbnail.

Image Name - the exact name of the image file you have uploaded into your gallery (something.jpg for example).

Alignment - may be 'left', 'middle', or 'right'. 'left' and 'right' will wrap text around the image, 'middle' will leave it alone.

Alternative Text - the text, that will be displayed if no image is loaded (or if you hold your mouse over it for a while).

h1-10000.jpg|left|Elder Citadel Dragon] An example, taken from one of the older incarnations of the Citadel. It is a thumbnail aligned to the left, and the text can flow nicely around it. Go to Comment

External Links (IN PROGRESS)

Links to external resources (well, to anything other than what was already mentioned), are your basic HTML links.

Example - link to all freetexts: http://strolen.com/freetext


A simple html link would look like this: (or just refer to any official documentation to HTML)

opening bracket + 'a href=' + quote + Full Link + quote + closing bracket + Title + opening bracket + /a + closing bracket
(All brackets here are angular brackets.) Go to Comment

(Say, isn't that the other way around - "Codex ID + pipe + Back to Top"?)

It is a good idea, though. If you want to, you can post it as a reply to the part about Codices. Go to Comment

Well, you can always update it if you want to - improving the submissions is not frowned upon, but actually quite welcome!

Since there are some considerations about documenting the intricate workings of the Citadel, it's time to Bump this lady! Go to Comment

An excellent resource, one that can be used by our new members, and some of our more established members who have linking problems. I would like to add a trick I've used in one of my codices that became cumbersomely large. After writing a large amendment to the codex, I would end it with a link that returned the viewer back to the top of the page.

The way I did this was as follows:

left square bracket + Back to Top + pipe + Codex ID + right square bracket

Essentially I linked the end of each codex section back to the codex itself, so clicking on the link reloaded the page and started the viewer back at the top of the page. Go to Comment
