How to Use Templates

It's actually pretty simple and at the moment there's only one you'll likely have to worry about, the Bio template. Simply fill in after the '=' sign after the field you are working on. For instance to input your name (we'll use John Harriman as an example) all you would do is type 'John Harriman' after 'name=' so that it looks like this: '|name=John Harriman'. Simply do that for all the fields and you'll have a perfect looking bio in no time. Now there's one tricky part here, and that's the '|imagename=' and '|imagedesc'(ription) fields. The 'imagename=' field is exactly that, say you want to upload a picture of your character later, simple type in the name you want for the file (we'll use 'Johnpic' as our name). It would look like so: '|imagename=JohnPic'. Then when you have your bio saved you have the option to click on a link to upload your picute and it will have the name you entered in the field. Same goes for the '|imagedesc=' field, whatever you enter here is what will appear as the description when you get your picture uploaded.

Pretty simple eh? I hope so, if not please feel free to contact me with your questions.

Bio Template

Preview page: Walker, Benjamin

You can use html fully in the fields, just be careful what you use and how. =)

|image= (if you are using an image already on the wiki, specify its extension, i.e image.jpg)
|imgheight= (choose a custom height for your image, if you leave it blank it will default to 200px)
|style= (must be one of the following: 'content','cfed','crom','ckli','cso','csoc','csrr'.
cfed will place the federations seal behind the general info, crom will place the romulan seal, etc...
and content will leave the background for that section blank.)
|rank= (name, not image, it'll break the category)
|position= (CO, XO, yadda yadda)
|posting= (Where they're at)
|extraheading1= (if you want to include extra information
|extracontent1= this will appear just above the history section)
|extraheading2= (if you want to include extra information
|extracontent2= this will appear just below the service section)
|extraheading3= (if you want to include extra information
|extracontent3= this will appear just below the awards section)
