From Mabinogi World Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Intro

W.T.F.E.W.R.S.A.T. for short.

If you have not edited a wiki before, please read the Mabinogi World Wiki's Policy.


How To Edit Pages

  1. Make an account and log in.
  2. At the upper-right of a page, there's an "edit" button, click it.

General Tips

  • Next to the "save page" button is a preview button. Please try to use it to avoid spamming Recent Changes.
  • If you're taking information from a source, make sure to link to the source.
  • If you don't know how to format something, go to a page that you think is nicely formatted and click on the "edit", and base your edits off of that.
    • Don't change that code, if you want to experiment do it on your userpage.
    • Eyeball the code until you see something that you recognize
    • Copy the code in the same paragraph as the part you recognize
    • Paste it onto the page that you're working on.
    • Replace the text as needed.

Editing Item Data

  • If the item already exists, there should be a little (edit) link below the name or icon.
    • Click that to access the stats/data, edit them as needed.
  • If the item/enchant/whatever does not exist, find templates you can copy-paste to make it.
  • The various parameters and values are explained here: Template:StyleWeapon.
  • If there is no item data, use the below information to make it.

Adding New Item Data

  1. Go to the template page.
  2. Click the Weapon or Equipment tab at the top depending on the type of item you're making information for.
  3. If you happen to have a copy of the item XML, paste it into the top window, otherwise skip this step.
  4. Fill in the various boxes with the different item properties and click the different settings as needed.
    • It's okay if you don't know what something is, other people can go update it later.
  5. At the bottom of the page will be the code for you to paste into the template page for the item.

Editing Enchant Data

  • Similar concept for items, Template:DataEnchantNAME.
  • Don't forget to edit the pages/data for the monster/mission that drops the enchant(ed item), and the rank pages too.

Editing Monster Data

  • Above each monster's entry is an edit button you can click to edit the template.

Editing Misc. Data

  • If you're trying to edit other data that's not showing up when you edit a page, you can see which templates are in for that page
    • At the bottom of the page (underneath the edit box), you'll see something like this you can click to expand.

Taking Screenshots

See the wiki policy for specific requirements, or continue reading for a short tutorial.

  1. Make Mabinogi go into Windowed mode (pressing alt + enter toggles between window and full-screen mode).
  2. Make sure that Glow Effect, Use Film Style Post Shader, and Outline Rendering are off in the game settings.
  3. Open another program/window and click it, or click on your desktop so you're not interacting with Mabi anymore.
  4. Press Print Screen (Prnt Scrn) key on the keyboard.
  5. File > Paste (Ctrl+V) into a photo editor (MSPaint, for example).
  6. Crop your image to desired size.
  7. Save as .png to maintain 100% quality (uncompressed).

Adding Images To Pages

  • If you're adding an image for an item, click the placeholder white circles on the item's page to automatically upload them to the right spot.
  • If you're adding an image to use in a page normally, click the "Upload file" link near the bottom of the left-hand menu.
    • You can then include the image with the following code: [[Image:image_name_here.png]].

Including Notifications \ Warnings

  • The wiki has a number of common templates you can place onto pages for informational purposes.
    • Use {{WarningName}} at the top of a page to add a notification.
    • You can see the list here:.
    • Some notifications allow you to type in one or more settings or messages with it
      • For example {{FutureContent|at=Generation 19|Tip=y|NoCategory=y}}.

Tagging & Categories

  • Many tags and categories are automated (for example tags on weapons automatically categorize them).
    • Otherwise you can tag pages into categories by putting something like this at the bottom.
[[Category:Hillwen Engineered Items]]
