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.

Code[edit]

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!

Colours[edit]

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

Categories[edit]

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.

Images[edit]

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.

EG:

blender_decimate.png

Galleries[edit]

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">
File:filename.png|caption
File:filename.png|caption
File:filename.png|caption
</gallery>

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

Captions can have links and w/e

Infoboxes[edit]

To add an image you can use code like this:

[[File:filename.extension|220px|thumb|left]]

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

[[:Category:Linux_export|]]

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      = 
| availability = 
}}
{{ infobox_updates
| item1             = 
| item1_date        = 
| item1_description = 
| item2             = 
| item2_date        = 
| item2_description = 
| item3             = 
| item3_date        = 
| item3_description = 
| item4             = 
| item4_date        = 
| item4_description = 
| item5             = 
| item5_date        = 
| item5_description = 
}}
