Rough guide to keeping things looking uniform.

Feel free to discuss anything on this page, and make suggestions if you think there are better ways of doing things.


For blocks of code you can use the <pre> tag. For inline code snippets, or keyboard/inputs you can use <code>. A bit wrong-sounding, I know!


The colours used in the logo are: #ed1c24, #ffaec9 and #fff200


Categories should be on the bottom of a page.

The order is: Software kind, 2-D/3-D, genre, x, operating system. 'X' being space for whatever else.

[[Category:Game Builder]][[Category:2-D]][[Category:Adventure]][[Category:Browser]][[Category:Browser_Export]]

Some times I use returns after groupings of cetegories to make it a bit easier to read, this doesn't effect how it appears on the page.


To keep things organised please start an images filename with something like the name of the section it's used in, then an underscore, then a description of the file.




I've just inserted my first gallery! I think they look a bit better without the lines, but otherwise use them as you see fit.

I used this simple code:

<gallery mode="packed">

Does seem to centre it though. Would look nicer left-aligned.

Captions can have links and w/e


To add an image you can use code like this:


Category links for fields like 'runs_on' and 'exports_to' looks like this:


To add a bullet point / list simple make a new line and enter and asterix and a space, then your text

| item5_description = text text text
* text text text

To make a new line without a bullet use <br>

Current infoboxes are:

{{ infobox_software
| title        =
| image        = 
| release_date = 
| made_by      = 
| runs_on      = 
| exports_to   = 
{{ infobox_assetsoftware
| title        =
| image        =
| release_date = 
| made_by      = 
| runs_on      = 
| imports      = 
| exports      = 
{{ infobox_leveleditor
| title        =
| image        =
| release_date = 
| made_by      =
