Etymology TemplateEdit

I don't know if its just me or if this occurs to anyone else, but the template is not displaying the text. For example: Amphiptere and Animist. Its blank, but I can see and click view/edit/purge within the brackets. Fenrir9 (talk) 22:02, May 15, 2015 (UTC)

Fixed; it's <onlyinclude>, not <noinclude>, on the Etymology pages.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 22:14, May 15, 2015 (UTC)
Oh, thanks. I just copied and paste it from the Pincer template. I'll fix that one while I'm at it. Fenrir9 (talk) 22:20, May 15, 2015 (UTC)

Summoner (Job)Edit

Regarding summoners in FFVI, I disagree. The act of summoning inherently makes any character that summons an esper a "summoner". The different games deal with class specific roles differently in each game. Leaving a reference to FFVI off the Summoner page implies that no characters are summoners in that game, which would be incorrect. Summoned espers are a central part of the battle system and story of FFVI and the role of summons and how they address who can and cannot summon in that game should be addressed. Only characters that can equip Magicite can become summoners and not all playable characters are able to summon. For example, Umaro, Leo and Banon cannot be equipped, hence they aren't summoners. A similar reference related to FFVII and Materia should probably be added as well.——Preceding unsigned comment was added by Ianthemagus (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~.

The abilities of the job appearing in the game is not the same as the job itself appearing in the game. Characters in FFVI also use black magic, but there is no Black Mage job appearing. However, Sabin's job is deferred to specifically as a monk. Reference, maybe, but it should not be listed as an appearance of the job.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 00:29, May 18, 2015 (UTC)

NavboxEdit

Hi there Techno. I like to implement FFWikia's special Navboxes onto Warframe Wiki, always wanted these; haven't had time to think about them until now. Specially the ones with images inside them like: Template:navbox FFVII

This is your stuff, so I'll just start by asking you so I make any major mistakes. Navboxes are a huge thing in every Wiki and I look to make ours better. I also really like the way the Navbox Template page just is an infobox making it easy for everyone (It is its own Styling Page). Though we are one of the top in WAM, I think we are missing many great features still so if you have any interesting ideas to add I appreciate that as well as a designer to another.

If you like I can link you to some different Navbox designs of ours as well just so you get the idea.

AdmiralRegis 23:11, May 28, 2015 (UTC)

Hey there. Woah, lemme begin by saying I love your main page design. I've always wanted to implement something like that over here, but never had the time/motivation with everything else going on. Okay, now to answer your question:
If you want to implement our navboxes specifically, you will need the code from Module:Navbox (and the Scribunto MediaWiki extension installed), as well as Module:Array and Module:String (or at least, the relevant parts), and finally Template:Navbox. Then, you will need to copy relevant code from MediaWiki:Common.css. If you only use one consistent color scheme for your navboxes across the site, you can remove all references of "classb", "classa" etc, and just color the navbox in the Common.css there.
As for the images inside them, there are a few ways you could do it, but I'd recommend doing it in a way similar to ours. We have a parameter called "editlink", which determines what the v-d-e (view-discuss-edit) link to, so basically the template name. This doubles up as determining an id found in the css; the FFVII image id, and the Final Fantasy header text, in this case. For Warframe wiki, you would just add an id for, say "Weapons-nav", and then in your navbox - Template:Weapons - the editlink param would of course be "Weapons". Then it'll add the image as a bgimage and, if you want it to, change text font and color. We have the Final Fantasy title font uploaded to our css, but if you want Warframe font uploaded, you'll need it downloaded and need a MediaWiki extension installed to upload font files.
Okay, I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any issues.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 13:13, May 29, 2015 (UTC)

FFA Edit

Hey, Techno. Sorry if I seem like a pest, but it's been a week or so since there was a post in my thread in Rin's Travel Agency regarding the fate of FFA. Since I agreed to a merge on the rail, has anything become of that? I'd like to stay in the know, as I'm sure you'd understand.
Thanks  Primarch Dysley FFXIII - Sprite-Dysley 05:07, May 30, 2015 (UTC)

Nah, no worries. The general consensus I've gathered seems to be that most people are in favour of it, I've just not been pushy enough with people on IRC about it.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 12:49, May 30, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know! I'm patient so it's all fine. I'll stay on the lookout for when it's confirmed.  Primarch Dysley FFXIII - Sprite-Dysley 19:51, May 30, 2015 (UTC)
You're free to hop in at any point if you want to push for something to happen sooner. I've been busy with exams and such so I haven't done much myself, and people are mostly lazy these days. :P--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 20:05, May 30, 2015 (UTC)

Needing CSS-related help Edit

Hello! While not related to this FF Wiki, I'd like to know if you could help me with something CSS-related on the Brazilian Portuguese FF Wiki. I'm trying to use Template:infobox character but the colors won't appear. I already added the FFXIII game classes on the Common.css page (you can see at the very bottom of the page), but nothing happened. I'm testing it on my Sandbox there.
Sorry for the (kinda) random request, I saw you're a experienced programmer, so I thought it was worth asking. Thanks in advance! Axcelaw (talk) 11:22, June 7, 2015 (UTC)

The template on your sandbox does not appear to think that the FFXIII class exists at all, from inspecting element. I did not set up the game classes system, so I'm less qualified to talk about it. My only guess would be a lack of the js code we have for the game classes here. As I said, however, you can get quicker help for this issue by asking JBed, as he is the one who set our system up to work (and I haven't got the time to check further myself). Sorry I could not be more helpful.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 13:51, June 7, 2015 (UTC)
Ah, that's probably it, since I didn't add anything to the js code. I'm gonna ask for his help then once I have some free time. Thanks for the help! Axcelaw (talk) 00:30, June 8, 2015 (UTC)
To warn you: I don't think that's it. The is code is used for generating CSS classes, I don't think they depend on them. I think it's more likely a CSS problem that I overlooked. Again, though, as I am less qualified to talk about it, all I can give are guesses.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 00:50, June 8, 2015 (UTC)
Okay, I got it. I'll post on your talk page, though.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 21:38, June 9, 2015 (UTC)

This request also kind of pertains to coding: could you please update the class code for Mobius Final Fantasy from "Mevius" to "Mobius" and also change the requirement for the sideicon for Mobius Final Fantasy from {{sideicon|Mevius}} to {{sideicon|Mobius}}, plus fix the linking to the said sideicon? Thanks in advance.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 22:21, June 7, 2015 (UTC)

Are there many tables or pages that use the Mevius class/sideicon? If there aren't many, I'll do it immediately, but if there are many, it'll need some specific bot scripts.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 22:47, June 7, 2015 (UTC)
Our current coverage for Mobius is very small so it's not very time consuming.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 23:19, June 7, 2015 (UTC)
Should be everything done now.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 23:25, June 7, 2015 (UTC)

Atma Relic Weapons Edit

Aren't the icons you uploaded in files FFXIV Atma of the Scorpion Icon.png and FFXIV Atma of the Scales Icon.png the same image?--LeafShinobi (talk) 00:29, June 11, 2015 (UTC)

Oh. Fixed. Thanks for letting me know.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 15:49, June 11, 2015 (UTC)

FFXIV item data Edit

After putting some thought into what we discussed on IRC today, and finding that importing data from Lodestone is a hell of a lot of work (and mostly pointless, since SE likes to keep a lot of Lodestone 1 patch behind so players can find stuff out themselves) but after derping around in FFXIV Explorer for a while I managed to find where most of the wiki-relevant data is stored. For example, items are stored in 0a000/exd/items.exh. I tried to upload the decompiled CSV to the wiki so we could experiment with it, but got this hilarious error message which I've never seen before. So that isn't an option.

Luckily I was able to figure out what some of the rows mean, and can start working on more. Once the whole thing is figured out I can try to put together a thing to make it into wikitables. And if at some point we can make sense of item, quest, achievement, etc. data, we can start talking about setting up Maintenance Node™ and updating for every patch. But that's a long way off.

EDIT: Just figured out what some of the rows mean. Well, except that there's 96 rows, so that's not much progress: User:Catuse167/ffxiv items C A T U S E 23:55, July 24, 2015 (UTC)

Niiice. This looks like some good progress so far, we'll see what we can work out using this.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 16:50, July 25, 2015 (UTC)

Moving ImagesEdit

Hey, Techno, I have a question: would it be possible to move all files that are on List of Pictlogica Final Fantasy Weapons so at the end of their filename is "Icon" added? See, I have actual sprites for those weapons and the "rarity icons" are kinda in the way (the icons presented on that weapon list appear to indicate their rarity). Also, would it be possible to also move all those images to "Category:Pictlogica Final Fantasy Weapon Icon Images" while you'd be at it?—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 23:00, September 3, 2015 (UTC)

With the bot? Sure, I'll help you out. I don't think I can use it to rename all the images all at once, but I can definitely get it to change the category for all of them. I'll look into mass renaming, there might be something for it here...--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 23:13, September 3, 2015 (UTC)
Oh. Looks like I can actually do it. It'll take a while, but it looks like it can be done. I'll head over to the talk page for that.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 23:22, September 3, 2015 (UTC)

Personal CSS/JS ThingEdit

Some time ago I noticed that a part of my personal Monobook.js doesn't force anymore the Search bar in the Monobook view to be the top-most option on the left hand side of the link navigation/directory/interaction/some-other-things. Did Wikia change something? I'd prefer to still have the Search option in Mobook view at the top, so could you help me, please? I tried Googling but nothing came up.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 18:19, September 20, 2015 (UTC)

A recent change in personal JS means you now need to enable it yourself. Go to Special:Preferences, then click "Under the hood", and enable the option "Enable personal JavaScript".--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 18:43, September 20, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! Works like a charm! Although what do you mean by a "recent change in personal JS"? I had that line of code for a year at least.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 18:55, September 20, 2015 (UTC)
No problem. It's basically to do with stuff Wikia has been working on with JS for a while now, just to make it more secure, and to eventually make it work better for wikis using it.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 19:01, September 20, 2015 (UTC)

Way ahead of ya. Don't worry about it, you can just create the page at the proper name later. If your article isn't finished when you start it, include an {{expand}} template at the top.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 18:19, October 5, 2015 (UTC)

Template help Edit

Hey! Sorry to bother you all of a sudden, but could you give me a little help pertaining a template? It's for the Brazilian Portuguese FF Wiki. I think it's something simple, but I can't find the problem.

I'm trying to create a template similar to the Template:J, but much more simple and without the fmt parameter. I'm also adding a fourth field for the original English name (we translate a lot of names to PT-BR) and I'm almost certain the error is on that part. The model used in this Wiki here is {{J|Japanese|Romaji|Literary meaning}}, while on the PT-BR is {{J|Japanese|Romaji|Literary meaning|English name}}. Both the Literary meaning and English name can be left blank.

Well, the problem in the template, as you can see on my Sandbox, is that it's creating a box right after the template. If you start a paragraph with a space, it creates another box for that paragraph. I think it's related to the "if 3" and "if 4", but I have no idea how to solve that.

I'd be very grateful if you could take a look at it. Thanks in advance!——Preceding unsigned comment was added by Axcelaw (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~.

Sounds simple enough. First things first, you should make a slight CSS change:
.jTemplate .ing {
    font-weight: "bold";
    font-style: "italic";
}
Just replace your current ".jTemplate .lit" stuff with that. Your example didn't include it, but if you want the speech marks to appear before the English name as well:
 .jTemplate .lit:before, .jTemplate .ing:before {
    content: "“";
}
 
.jTemplate .lit:after, .jTemplate .ing:after {
    content: "”";
}
And as for the template:
<span class="jTemplate">(<span class="japan" lang="ja">{{{1}}}</span>, <span class="romaji">{{{2}}}</span><span class="help">[[wikipedia:Help:Japanese|?]]</span>{{#if:{{{3|}}}|, lit. <span class="lit">{{{3|}}}</span>}}{{#if:{{{4|}}}|, <span class="ing">{{{4|}}}</span> em inglês}})</span>
That's the code you want. Obviously there's all the onlyinclude stuff as well, and I don't know if you need it to flag pages when there's no Japanese romanization?
tbh I think the FFWiki's {{J}} code should be converted to a Lua Module or something as well, its use of switch is inefficient and even though it's only used once per page, I still think Lua Modules should be used for even a slight increase in efficiency and just readability...if I did rewrite it, I'd probably write that Lua Module to work for you as well so that you can keep all the functionality while still understanding wtf is going on with it, rofl.
Hope this helps?--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 00:10, October 16, 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for replying, it looks better now with the classes! The problem I mentioned still persists though. The template is creating those <pre> boxes for some reason. Everything is working perfectly finely now, except for this.
I don't know how Lua Modules works, so this way works better for me. :P
Axcelaw (talk) 03:57, October 16, 2015 (UTC)
Should be ok now? It doesn't create the boxes, it's basically because you had the <onlyinclude> tags done wrong so there was space in between the onlyinclude tags and the template, which led to the error.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 09:09, October 16, 2015 (UTC)
Yes, it's working perfectly now! I had no idea the spaces could do that, I only thought that it looked more neat that way.
Thank you for the help! Time for making changes to all pages.

RE: AerithEdit

Aerith is a half-breed.

First line in Aerith's "Early Life" section:

"Aerith was born to Ifalna and Professor Gast Faremis in Icicle Inn on February 7th, 1985, making her half-human and half-Cetra"

Third from the last in Aerith;s Trivia Section:

Aerith was born to Ifalna and Professor Gast Faremis in Icicle Inn on February 7th, 1985, making her half-human and half-Cetra——Preceding unsigned comment was added by BeeWiseman (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~.

Well that's weird, I never remembered her being referenced in the game as half-breed. My mistake. I just assumed it didn't matter and she was a full Cetra regardless. Anyway, you can add that phrase back into the page then, but remember to link to Aerith Gainsborough and not just Aerith.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 23:36, October 16, 2015 (UTC)
