I propose that we make a template for requesting adding videos to pages that can use them, such as the Glitch pages (and maybe even spell pages, if those were done correctly...maybe), or any other pages that can use them. Yay? Nay? What would be used for the image and quote? Let me hear your opinions on this mateys!
Whatever you guys think works! If that's how you think it's best to go about it, then do so. I just think that we need a template for something like this, seeing as seeing a video about something is a lot easier than a still image of something sometimes, and it may get people to try to do vids for stuff.
I like the idea of adding a parameter to
Well, if nobody objects to it, then someone fix that template up to include this, so that it may be used on the appropriate pages. I don't have time myself to do it as I'm currently working on my own RPG atm (and taking notes of what glitches needs vids).
Sealed Cave Glitch will be the test page for this. Just letting you guys know, in case you decide to use a different approach or something. Right now, the Category it's adding it to isn't working very well ^^;
Category now works. That was my mistake.
I don't see why you couldn't have just done ifeq/1/video/video/image(Edit:Okay, now I know why. I would still do ifeq/2/video/video/ifeq/1/video/video/image). Also making it a part of the images template doesn't make sense. Also, I hate videos. That is all. JBed 18:19, April 17, 2012 (UTC)
- Actually, I have no idea how to use any parserFunction but #if. I was educated-guessing when I tried to use #ifexpr (or was it #ifeq?) to make a true/false statement for the video, realized I was fumbling in the dark, and settled for just good old #if.
- What's wrong with videos? They're more informative than images Cat 00:29, April 18, 2012 (UTC)
- They also break the flow of a page, have to take up a greater space, and clearly stick out.
- True/False? If (essentially) does an "if parameter exists (and has content)".
- Ifeq tests one thing against another. This is used in variables, where the first thing you type would be the variable, then the next thing you type is what you want it to match with.
- Ifexpr asks if a statement is true or false. Typing 4+4=8 with output True, 4+4=7 will output false. It is usually used with greater than/less than signs.
- Iferror is less truey/falsey than other things, and if in its statement there is an error, it will output true, and if there is no error, it will output false. This can be used for an "IfNumber" logic. Although, I made
- All if statements are simple true and false. Ifeq is generally better because basic If means anything can be written in a parameter while "ifeq" looks for certain things. Replace functions can also be added to ifeq in order to allow multiple strings to be treated as "equal". 22.214.171.124 13:32, April 18, 2012 (UTC)
- So that's how they work. Thanky.
- As for not liking videos, [[File:FFIV_-_Kain_and_Cecil_Fight_Goblins.gif|it is possible to upload short animated GIFs in the event that a long video is too obstructive. Cat 14:50, April 18, 2012 (UTC)
