Can you help me out in coding? I like the style of your heroes section in the Main Page and would like to copy it with the acknowledgement of CC-BY-SA, of course this wiki would get credit but I would like to know the sources of it.
Sorry about that, was in a hurry. Only grabbed Shadow Lynx Phase though, no other pictures.
Took it down and made my own version of the image.
EDIT: Was looking at your site and noticed the royal wukong skin. Just letting you know the version here was made by me on photoshop. It's slightly different from the one on your site (they look very similar because they were probably made in the same way haha)
Article comments is a feature that is going away and is being replaced with the Discussions Footer. It will show on the main page as well but that can be changed by using CSS and replacing it with the Discussions Activity Feed. I have done this on two of my personal wikis, Planet Coaster and For Honor so you can see what that looks like. For more information on how to add and use the feed, you can go to Help:Discussions_activity_feed.
If you would like to replace the article comments with the Discussions footer prior to it becoming standard, let me know and I can make the switch. If you then decide to use the feed instead of the footer module on the main page, use the code below. This works for any page if you specify which one in the code but you may need to adjust the width (see that help page for info).
Ok, I made the switch. You will now see Discussions at the bottom of the articles. If you want a feed on the main page instead, just add that css I posted above. That will turn the footer off, then use
in the source (prob right rail?) to embed a feed. Variations are in that help page I linked.
im just curious. i had made an edit to Quests. but now that page was deleted and replaced by Weekly Quests. my question is, why was the page deleted to make a different page? why not edit the existing page? sorry that was 2 questions.
primary reason for this is, i edited the page for quests for the gameplay page. and used the existing quest link. now that link no longer works due to the deletion.
Did you by chance remove those tooltips earlier today? When I was talking to someone from the mobile team this afternoon (around 4:30pm PDT) he said that the pages with cards (we looked at the Universal cards and Order) were loading just fine for him on mobile and looked ok. When I checked them again, they were fine for me too. I mentioned you thought the tooltip might be causing an issue. He would be interested to know if that was in fact causing the horrible load times. Let me know if you noticed a difference or not plz.
I disabled the tooltips, but I disabled them about 20 minutes ago so I don't think that was it. Although I do think they contribute to slightly slower loading times, they make the browsing expierence on a computer much more useful as you could check out the cards page and find out info about a card without having to move around through many pages.
I'd love to re-enable them eventually once I figure out how to make them not appear on the mobile skin.
I also changed the watermark and removed the navboxes from the top of the Hero pages. Regarding the mobile mainpage, I remember I edited when I first started editing here, so I don't remember if I removed some categories, and If I did, it'd be awesome to have them back as I surely didn't know much about what I was doing haha.
Could you ask the CSS/Portabilty team if they could check out the Stat Template?
It shows a small icon representing the stat that is being shown like this: 6.5Energy Damage and while it looks great (and inline) on PC's, on mobile devices the image is not inline and takes an entire line, making it a bit unpleasing to watch. If you could find out a way to show the image inline on mobile or at least hide the image on mobile, it'd be much appreciated.
First, take a look at my last post. The change to Wiki will be global on 10/4 so there is time to remake the wordmark but the sooner the better of course. Next, please check your email for something from me. If you have questions, feel free to reply with them, or let me know here and I can jump into chat and I can explain further. I would also like to introduce a new user here. His name is Tollsunited7 and he is the Admin at Paragon.wiki. Everything is explained in the email but our immediate need is to set up an online meeting. We are planning for Tuesday but if you have time sooner (before Friday 5pm PDT) let me know via reply email. Hope to hear from you soon!
With our recent change to the Fandom branding, we are no longer referring to our communites as wikias. They will be called Wiki or Community. Staff has been asked to talk with Admins about the change and ask them to remake wordmarks to use Wiki instead of Wikia and to change any wording to match. The mainpage name should also be changed to reflect this (Edit - Rename). This will also help us compete with SEO for obvious reasons as wiki is a well recognized term. I will leave you to make the visible changes on the site and I will make the change internally on our side. Thanks!
I have had a few discussions with our SEO team and this community is in a pretty good place. You may notice me editing here and there, but nothing major has needed to change. The only request made was to have a short game description on the mainpage. I'm pretty sure I had one there before but assume you removed it with the updated design. If you could squeeze one in, maybe below the videos, that would be great. It doesn't need to be anything crazy.
Planning to play For Honor? I could use someone with your design skills over on that community. :) While I don't know what your future goals are, keep an eye on our Career Page if you ever decide you want to do more with us. I personally came from the Wildstar Online as an Admin, became a Star and then got hired as staff.
I've been trying to learn more about SEO these past few days. Seems like something very important and useful as it can help extend the reach of the Wikia to a broader audience. Do you have any tips about SEO? I've read a couple of things here and there, but the more I learn the better I can apply these things on the Wikia.
I haven't heard much about For Honor, but if I do get to check it out, I'll be sure to help out over there :)
I'm finishing up college right now but still got a bit left to go on my degree. But I will definitely keep an eye out on the Career Page.
Thanks again for the help! And I'll be sure to add a description on the main page in a sec.
While we have a team specifically for SEO, what I have learned so far when it comes to our communities, is that keywords are very important. Google learns your habits and responds to them, so searching "Paragon" yourself will only bring up what it thinks you want or what you have looked for in the past. Try clearing cookies and history, or open an 'incognito" window and typing in Paragon to see what pops up. There are free tools you can use, like Soovle.com or install a browser extension like Moz Bar to help you see what keywords people are searching the most and make sure you have those topics covered well. By well, I mean no less than 100 words written by you. This makes content unique and Google (as well as other search engines) will place it higher on the list than something that was copied from someone else. Dont get me wrong, it's perfectly okay to copy, like from an official source. Just make sure you also expand on it, or introduce it with a paragraph or two of your own.
Internal links - make sure the pages are linking to eachother. That doesnt mean every occurance of the word Affinity has to have a link to the Affinity page, but it should have at least one per page that it is on. I generally use the internal link the first time I see or write a word on a page that I know there is an article about, then ignore it after that.
Images are also important and when you add images, make sure they are named like keywords. For example, an image named For_ Honor_ PVP_Samurai.png would get more hits than an image named FHPVP23463323.png which would probably get zero. Be sure every article has at least one image on it that relates to the page. All the card ones do already of course. Google pays attention to H1 and H2 headers, so be sure they are named well and are descriptive.
As I said earlier, this community is already in good shape for SEO. Both by your efforts and my own. The lag behind our competitors was somewhat my fault, by not pushing the content out fast enough. We are working on ways to improve the process. Of course the number one goal is to have the content available, but unless users are coming here first.... well, good information is only good, if it's being read.
There is a lot more to SEO, but those are the best tips I can give atm. I am no pro myself, but I am always trying to learn. Skillshare.com has some good classes on it. I have a premium account, so I have taken advantage of some of them but there should be free ones as well.
Just FYI, the best background size for no splits is 2000px wide (I generally use 2000px x 1125px.). I took the image you were using as most of it was hiding behind the article, resized it to 2000px wide and reduced it to just under 300kb, then put it back. Hope this helps!
I have been asked to created temp pages using the datamined codenames for the unreleased heroes. I wanted to check with you and see if this is ok. Supposedly it will help SEO and give us a boost on the Google rating. The datamined list is here. Any issues with me creating them?
I have a question. On the wikiamobile skin, Navboxes are hidden which is great, because they don't look so good on mobile. But for some reason, the app still shows the Navboxes, making a huge clutter. Is there a way I can "hide" them from the app, but still show them on the desktop webpage?
I'm not sure why the Navboxes would cause clutter on the app myself, but I will ask the right staff members and see if we can get some insight into this. I will let you know as soon as I have an answer.
Our mobile app team will be looking into this. They don't generally work on the weekend so I didn't hear anything back till this morning - but I wanted to let you know that the issue is being investigated.
I have news. There is an update coming in the not-so-distant future that may resolve the issue. In the meantime, the only suggestion the mobile team had was to move the box to the bottom of the article so that it's not intrusive on the mobile app prior to the article content.
It's not the perfect solution, but it may be the only one for a while.
I'll just remove them temporarily then. There's already a Navbox at the bottom of the page, and that one is hidden from the app so it'll work better for now. When the bug is fixed let me know and I'll re-add them!
