Table of Contents
If you are allowed to edit pages in this Site, simply click on edit button at the bottom of the page. This will open an editor. If you are not used to how a wiki editor works or if you find the syntax we use for some pages a bit complicated, then read on.
General guidelines (Important!)
- Always, and we mean ALWAYS, add a short description to the changes you make, even if it something trivial as correcting a typo. This ways it is easier for us moderators to revert mistakes.
- If you add internal links, be sure that these links are correct and that you dont create double pages. We have listings of places, characters and so on so you can easily look up the links. We have people on the site who do this but it's not nice to give those people extra work.
- When creating a new side character (one that scott hasn't given a name yet), make sure to instantly add a picture of this said character and ad him/her to the character listing, so that people who create a new character don't use the same one as you did. On the same subject, always check the character listing before creating a new character.

Next if you look at the code you will see a lot of code. If you look closely you will notice that it repeats itself, do not be fooled though it is repeated over 2 blocks not 1.
Below you will find the code to the left and the comments to the right. In the comments only the first part of the code has been explained cause the only difference between the first and second block is in the first line. Namely the float:right or float:left . This pritty piece of code divides the code in 2 columns. So pay attention where the next object should be placed and adjust accordingly.
In the comments you will see that every line starts with a + or a -. Only the + lines should be altered.
[[div style="margin-left:2%;float:left;width:43%;"]] ++++ [[[objects:The Sword of Kings]]] [[div style="margin-top:-20px;margin-bottom:20px;"]] [[div style="float:left; width: 80px; padding: 0 2%"]] [[f<image flickr:4230136045 size="square"]] [[/div]] The magical sword that [[[characters:alexander carter|Alexander]]] carries around which is said to have belonged to the past kings of Dreamland [[/div]][[/div]] [[div style="margin-right:2%;float:right;width:43%;"]] ++++ [[[objects:Sword Necklace]]] [[div style="margin-top:-20px;margin-bottom:20px;"]] [[div style="float:left; width: 80px; padding: 0 2%"]] [[f<image flickr:4230146757 size="square"]] [[/div]] When [[[characters:alexander carter|Alex]]] is in the real world, the sword of kings is transformed into this necklace.
