FANDOM


Hello user. This help page should serve as a helpful guide to help you along if you don't know how to make a userpage and to show some of the functions you can have. Everything that goes on your talk page is almost entirely up to the user, and users are encouraged to personalize their userpage as much as possible. However, this page features ideas that may be useful for your own userpages.

InfoboxEdit

On the right is an example of an infobox. Having an infobox on a userpage is a quick and easy way for you to display the most essential information about yourself to other users. The fields you see being used don't have to be the same as the ones used here and you can choose whatever fields you want. You can also choose different colors by changing the bgcolor values. If you think you are good at coding, there's nothing stopping you changing the design of the template too.

To have an infobox on your userpage you need the following code:

{|border="1" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" style="border-radius:7px; float:right; font-size:90%; width:300px; text-align:left"

!bgcolor="yellow" align="center" colspan="2" style="border-top-right-radius:7px; border-top-left-radius:7px; font-size:13.5px;"|your username
|-
|align="center" colspan="2"|[[File:Image Placeholder.png]]
|-
!bgcolor="yellow" width="110px"|Name
|your username

This can then be followed by any amount of rows that follow this format.

|-
!bgcolor="yellow"|[parameter]
|[value]

When you have inserted all the rows that you want, you must end with this to close the infobox.

|-
!bgcolor="yellow" colspan="2" style="text-align:center; font-size:13.5px; border-bottom-right-radius:7px; border-bottom-left-radius:7px;"|{{SL|:Category:Final Fantasy Wikians|Final Fantasy Wiki user|color=black}}
|}

And if the code has been inserted you should end up with an infobox similar to the one on this page.

QuotesEdit

Some people like to start off with their favorite quote, and if you want to do so too, use the following code:

{{RQ|"Put a quote here!"|person who said it|game it's in}}

For instance:
{{RQ|!$#¤@|Cid Highwind|Final Fantasy VII}}

and you would get:
!$#¤@
―Cid Highwind, Final Fantasy VII

About MeEdit

The "About Me" section is, as you might have guessed, a section all about you. You can add whatever you wish, as long as it relates to you, like your hobbies or history with the Final Fantasy Games and how you got started. This is your user page, put anything you want!!

Userboxes Edit

There are many Userboxes here on this site that you can use to explain who you are. By clicking on the link above you can find a variety of userboxes, ranging from your gender and favorite game(s) to your characteristics.

FF6 Gogo Sprite iOS Is this user a woman? Or a man? Or should we ask?
User pisces This user is a Piscean.
XIThis user Hated Final Fantasy XI.


As you can see from this user's userboxes, the user is of indeterminate gender, a Pisces, and hates Final Fantasy XI.

The code for the example above is this:

{|align="center"
| {{user gogo}}
| {{user pisces}}
|-
| {{user hate|FFXI}}
|}
{{clear}}

Be sure to add only two or three userboxes next to each other, because a fourth will make it too wide, and a third may also make it too wide varying on your settings.

If you would like to make your own userboxes, because we don't have the one you want, you can go here. The page has an extensive tutorial on making your own userbox.

Polls!Edit

Putting up polls is simple, simply write:

<poll>
Do you like polls?
Yes, of course, I love them
I guess they're okay
No, I don't
</poll>

And you'd get:

Do you like polls?
 
193
 
65
 
22
 

The poll was created at 21:39 on December 16, 2007, and so far 280 people voted.

As you can see, the first line after the poll tag (the <poll>) becomes the question/topic, while the following lines become options you can select.

Here you can show your FF preferencesEdit

If you want to give a more detailed description of what FF games, characters, music, etc. you like the best, you can use the following tables to do so.

SubpagesEdit

Some users like to create subpages of their userpage for various reasons. Some users use these subpages as sandboxes to display content they're working on and planning to move to the mainspace, or to display past Videos/Pictures of the Week, if their userpage is using such a feature (see below). A user subpage is basically for storing content you don't want on the mainspace or on your userpage, but still want preserved.

Creating a subpage is easy. Simply type the following coding on your userpage.

[[User:your username/Name of the Subpage]]

Once the link is created, you can click on it and edit it as with your normal userpage. However, note that the same rules for userpages apply to subpages.

Talk ArchivesEdit

It's common (and useful) to preserve previous messages people have left you, but too many messages can crowd your talk page and make it difficult to navigate. For this reason, it may be helpful to create a talk archive subpage. Just like a user subpage, a talk archive is a subpage of your talk page, that can contain all the messages you no longer wish to have on your talk page but still wish to have around.

To create a talk archive, type the following coding at the top of your talk page.

[[User talk:your username/Archive 1|Talk Archive 1]]

Once the link is made, turning it into a talk archive is simple. Copy all the content on your talk page you wish to move to the archive, then edit the archive, and paste the content there. Once that is done, you can delete the messages from your original talk page. As more people leave you messages, you may wish to create multiple talk archives, which can be done by using the above coding with the archive number changed appropriately to denote the order in which the content was archived (Talk Archive 1, 2, 3, and so forth).

Talkbubble history sectionEdit

Many people like to display all the different talkbubbles they've had during their time on the FFWiki in a sort of "display section" (to learn how to create talkboxes, read this). Here is an example of a talkbubble history section.

To create your very own talk bubble, copy the code seen here into template:-yourname-. Once you do that, you can adjust the various parts of the talk bubble to make it yours.

After making the template like you want, just type in this code:
{{User:your username/Talk|time=~~~~~|text=what you want to say.}}

VideosEdit

The Final Fantasy Wiki lets you put videos from YouTube on your userpage. Use this code:

{{subst:Video|
the code after the "watch?v=" in the address bar
}}

example:
{{subst:Video|zRDij-wHKok}}

which becomes: Template loop detected: Template:Video

It is strongly recommended that you keep your YouTube video number to a reasonable amount (preferably less than four). More than a few YouTube videos can make pages very difficult to load and navigation next to impossible.
