Welcome to the wiki! From here you can begin organizing your campaign info. Everyone has useful information and here you can put that info out for everyone in the campaign to use.
To get you started, here are some examples of what you can do with the wiki. To see how these work, click on the ‘Edit’ button at the bottom of any page and take a look. Don’t worry, you won’t break anything.
Creating a new page
To create a new page, just make a name and surround it with double square brackets like so: A New Page. When you save the page, the link will show up and you can click on it to create the new page. A red link is a page that doesn’t exist yet. You can make a link for A New Page for a topic that you want linked, but don’t have the info yet. If you see a red link and you know some useful information about that topic, click the red link to immediately start a new wiki page!
Linking to existing pages
To link to existing pages, use the same double square brackets. For example, here’s a link to this page: Main Page
Linking to a page with different text
If you don’t want to use the page’s name as the link text, you can specify your own text by placing a vertical bar | and the link text in the link brackets like so: Linking with different text
Remember, at any time you can scroll down and click the edit button to see how these examples are really set up.
Linking to characters
For PCs and NPCs in your campaign, the easiest thing is to use the PC/NPC Link Lookup in the toolbar that appears at the top of the editing box. Wiki Page Lookup will appear to the right in a drop down box. It’s quite handy! Otherwise, the links behave much like a wiki link, just with a colon at the start.
HTML and Textile
To style things how you want, you can also use either HTML (with some restrictions) or a simple formatting language called Textile. It’s up to you, but Textile is pretty easy, while simultaneously allowing for lots of customization.
The fun part is you don’t have to use strictly one or the other – you can use whichever work best for what you’re trying to do.
HELP!? I Can’t Figure It Out!
Best of all – you don’t have to understand any of the above guidelines. If you can’t figure it out, but you have some information to add, just edit page and type in the information in plain text. Getting the info in there is the most important thing. Your fellow players, the DM, or the Co-DM can always edit your plain text after you’ve contributed!
