My userpage

On my userpage it appears I have a span tag not closed that makes things blue and bigger. I can not find it. Can someone take a look at my userpage, find it, and close it? Matt (t) 02:36, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

You have the text span on your page 82 times. Congrats. I cannot find any occurrence of an open tag however. 22px-Logo.svg.pngTyA_userpage_image.png 02:43, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

I can see an extra </div> tag, but no </span>. 222 talk 02:52, October 7, 2010 (UTC)
I fixed the </div> thing and found the problem
:<span style="color:blue; font-size:150%"><span style="font-size:200%; color:#ff00ff; font-family:Arial Rounded MT Bold;">MY POLLS</span><br /></span>
<span style="color:blue; font-size:150%">{{/Polls}}<br /><br /></span>
:<span style="color:blue; font-size:150%"><span style="font-size:200%; color:#ff00ff; font-family:Arial Rounded MT Bold;">MY USERBOXES</span><br /><div style="text-align:center;">{{/Userboxes}}</div></span>
<span style="color:blue; font-size:150%"></span>

You are giving a style to the transcluded pages. So there is not an unclosed tag, just you went crazy with turning things blue Wink. Full slayer helmet Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon platebody 02:56, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

"...there are more effective ways to "bump" the thread"?

[[RuneScape:Requests for comment]] says that using {{Rfc}} on RS:YG threads is discouraged because "...there are more effective ways to "bump" the thread". May I ask what these ways are? Cause Canvassing is a violation of RS:C. Matt (t) 10:28, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

You're not canvassing by posting something on a thread... Canvassing is soliciting support from specific editors. Adding a comment bumps the thread so that everyone sees it. Of course, I would try to make the comment have some meaningful content. --LiquidTalk 17:26, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

User Page Levels

I followed the directions at RS:CYP to set up the HS autoupdate with QBot. However, I wasn't able to work out how to plug the output into Template:User stats... Can anyone please help me? it would be much appreciated. Thanks! Michagogo 13:43, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

{{Parse user stats|Data={{User:Michagogo/LevelHS}}|Name=Micha Rune}} That code should do the trick. ShinyUnown T | C | E 16:42, October 7, 2010 (UTC)
So the full code would be {{User stats|{{Parse user stats|Data={{User:Michagogo/LevelHS}}|Name=Micha Rune}}}}? Michagogo 16:54, October 7, 2010 (UTC)
No, I tried it out and it didn't work... Frown Michagogo 16:55, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

Oh, I see -- that code does the same jobs as Template:User stats. Didn't realize that. One last question -- How do I fill in missing info, and more importantly, how do I either move the box out from under the followed pages or move/remove the followed pages off the box? (as you probably can tell, I'm a bit of a newb when it comes to Wiki coding). Thanks!! Michagogo 17:37, October 7, 2010 (UTC)
You can use this:
{{Parse user stats|Data={{User:Michagogo/LevelHS}}|Name=Micha Rune|Combat=correct combat level|Music=tracks unlocked|Quest=quest points|Strength=strength level}}
You can use all of the standard skill names for all skills, however this doesn't override the skill level if its already available.
As for followed pages, you need to visit Special:Preferences, click the Followed pages tab then check the Make my followed pages list private box. More info on Help:Removing followed pages. Quest Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 17:52, October 7, 2010 (UTC)

Changes to quest articles

We'll implement Forum:Changes to quest articles#Conclusion. This means that we'll have some work to do.

  • Modifications to the current content:
    • Add HasWalkthrough to the top of each article.
    • Consolidate the release information, etc into {{Infobox quest}}.
    • Move {{Quest details}} under the walkthrough header, and remove the details header.
For example, we want:
{{Quest details}} (with the appropriate content)
===Starting Out===
  • Adding new content:
    • Storyline header: Add information about the storyline.
    • Official Description header: Copy over the official description from Jagex's site under its own header (this may need to be removed if it violates copyright law).
    • Rework/History header: Add other miscellaneous historical information, such as reworks.
    • Development Team header: Add the development team, including the reworks if applicable.

Obviously, we can't finish this in a day. We will most likely need a wikiguild to do this. The first bullet (adding the HasWalkthrough template) can probably be done with AWB, so if anyone wants to volunteer right now, go ahead. --LiquidTalk 15:24, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

Rfd Templates

Something is amiss in either {{Rfd top}} or {{Rfd bottom}}. Look here. Though the General Khazard RfD had both the top and bottom templates, the RfD box still extended to the bottom of the page. It's probably a case of someone forgetting to close a tag. --LiquidTalk 17:41, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

Fixed, I reworked it so no matter what there is an opening and closing tag (by default, a div with no properties), but try not to have archived mixed in with non-archived or else the variable "archive" could get defined by something else than meant meaning the bottom may not say "The above discussion is preserved as an archive of the debate. No further edits should be made to this page." (not a terrible thing in my opinion). Full slayer helmet Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon platebody 18:28, October 11, 2010 (UTC)


Is it possible to add a parameter to {{HasStrategy}} to make it so when the parameter is in use, it links to <insert pagename here>/<insert what's in parameter here>, but when not in use, it defaults to <insert pagename here>/Strategies?

I moved every strategy page I could find to /Strategies. So wouldn't it be better to move it them to /Strategies 222 talk 06:50, October 13, 2010 (UTC)

Ok, this is the code i've come up with {{#ifexist:{{PAGENAME}}/Strategies|[[{{PAGENAME}}/Strategies|here]]||[[{{{1}}}|here]]}}. It's not perfect yet, if it's on a page with the /Strategies it will auto put that up. Currently add the paramater in doesn't do anything and the text is blank if the page does not have the correct name. If a freak could fix it, it should work ,but i'm stumped from here. Hunter cape (t) Sentra246Blue hallowe&#039;en mask 08:06, October 13, 2010 (UTC)

Wouldn't it be easier to just have it be like: ''This article has a strategy guide [[{{PAGENAME}}/{{{1|Strategies}}}|here]].'' That way would make it link to PAGENAME/the parameter if you put one in, or if you don't put in a parameter then it would go to PAGENAME/Strategies. (forgive me if there's a slight coding mistake, I did this from memory) insaneular 01:30, October 16, 2010 (UTC)
Thats what we used initially, then I changed it to the current setup and moved every strategy page I could find to "strategies". I don't want to return to the old setup as it doesn't require text on every page. 222 talk 07:19, October 16, 2010 (UTC)

Quest Infobox

Can someone make categories like "Needs official length added" or "Needs head developer added" for each of the main parameters of {{Infobox Quest}} and add the code to make it that when the parameter is empty that these categories get added to the page? Just like every other infobox. You don't need to make a category for "Update" or "Release" as Category:Needs update added and Category:Needs release date already exist. Thank you! Matt (t) 05:54, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

Okay, made the categories. [[:Category:Needs game guide link]], [[:Category:Needs head developer]], [[:Category:Needs official length]], and [[:Category:Needs official difficulty]]. So you can add the code without making the categories. Smile Matt (t) 06:56, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

Ok, i done quite some work with coding on this wiki, but there is one thing i don't understand: {{#var:(things)}}. How does it work? is it some kind of {{{1}}} but a little different or something? JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 15:00, October 31, 2010 (UTC)

{{#vardefine:VariableName|InitalValue}} sets up a variable with the name being VariableName and having a value of InitalValue. To change the variable name, you would use {{#vardefine:VariableName|NewValue}}. Then if you were to use the variable you have created you would use {{#var:VariableName}}, and it will use the value of the variable. At least this is what I got from reading this from Q. 22px-Logo.svg.pngTyA_userpage_image.png 02:55, November 1, 2010 (UTC)

How can I kill floating toolbar, etc...?

How can I kill the floating toolbar at the bottom and the garbage/ads about other wikis? I don't want the links to other wikis at the right or at the bottom. Is there a way to turn them OFF? Mamabear47 09:24, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

Try taking a look at my personal css, there's lots of code that you might like to add.

To remove the toolbar add the following to your css:

div.toolbar {display: none !important;}

To remove ads, install AdBlock, a plugin/extension avaliable on Mozilla Firefox/Google Chrome.

OR add this to your css.

div.WikiaMainPageBanner {display:none !important}
div#HOME_TOP_RIGHT_BOXAD.wikia-ad.noprint {display:none !important}

Another idea cropped up. Adding links to the vacated bar at the top where links to other wikis used to be before I removed them. Have a go at that. Wink 222 talk 06:10, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

Here's some:
//Add links to Global Navigation\
if ( wgNamespaceNumber !=401 && !window.GlobalLinksLoad  ) {
        addOnloadHook( addGlobalLinks );
var GlobalLinksLoad = true; // prevent duplication
function addGlobalLinks () {
    $('<li id="StellarDawn"><a href="">Stellar Dawn</a></li>').appendTo('ul.GlobalNavigation');
    $('<li id="CommunityCentral"><a href="">Community Central</a></li>').appendTo('ul.GlobalNavigation');
Once again, I am reminding you to use unique li id's for each new link. If you have hidden global navigation, change it to where you hide the li's of global and add each new li#____ from the addGlobalLinks to appear in your CSS. Ryan PM 15:26, November 8, 2010 (UTC)
What CSS do I add? I can't find the right code. 222 talk 06:14, November 9, 2010 (UTC)
Whatever you put in for <li id="UNIQUENAME"></li> is what you will put as li#UNIQUENAME { display: block !important; }. Everthing should look the same as the image on ym userpage if all goes well. Now for those links you want to remove in the Global Nav, instead of doing it to everything, try:
header#WikiaHeader > nav > ul > li {
    display: none; }
header#WikiaHeader > nav > ul > li:first-child,
header#WikiaHeader > nav > ul > li:last-child {
    display: block; }
Hope that helped.Ryan PM 06:29, November 9, 2010 (UTC)

How is it broken? It only prints 2 and 4 as levels.
--Farming cape (t) Ikin Talk 22:58, October 30, 2010 (UTC)

From the template's page:

In the case of error, the following status codes may be returned:

  • 0 - Enter a display name.
  • 1 - The user does not exist.
  • 2 - An unknown error occurred, try again.
  • 3 - You have gone beyond the limit of two separate names per page.
  • 4 - The skill does not exist.
  • 5 - The type does not exist.
So there are several errors occurring. I expect some sort of upgrade at Wikia broke it. I suggest poking The Almighty Q about it. I'm a regular user and I approve this message.  TLUL Talk - Contribs 03:47, November 3, 2010 (UTC) 


How you you follow a talk page, or for that matter, any page? Cartermac4 18:15, November 1, 2010 (UTC)Cartermac4

Utilising that blank space on the floating toolbar

Could someone please conjure up some js that can allow me to add links to the floating toolbar? Thanks, 222 talk 21:35, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

(Ignore this, scroll down a bit) Here is my list of links that I use on my toolbar:
//Add links to Toolbar

$('<li id="YewGrove"><a href="/wiki/Forum:Yew_Grove">Yew Grove<img src="" width="15" height="15" align="left"></a></li>').appendTo('');

$('<li id="UploadLog"><a href="/wiki/Special:Log/upload">Upload log<img src="" width="15" height="15" align="left"></a></li>').appendTo('');

$('<li id="RSWRC"><a href="/wiki/Special:RecentChanges">Recent Changes<img src="" width="15" height="15" align="left"></a></li>').appendTo('');
While I don't yet know (I will soon) how to make a simple template for (link, name, image) in JS, you should follow those above with a unique li id, link, name, and image source with the 15 width and height along with the appending. The only thing that is bugging me is the inability to use JS from personal, or for that matter global personal, userspace on Special pages. If someone else can figure it out before me, I'd love it very much. Lastly, for the images, I took them from the vast array here. Ryan PM 04:54, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

Okay, here's a better one that works on all namespaces:

//Add links to Toolbar
if ( wgNamespaceNumber && !window.ToolbarLinksLoad  ) {
        addOnloadHook( addToolbarLinks );
var ToolbarLinksLoad = true; // prevent duplication
function addToolbarLinks () {
        $('<li id="YewGrove"><a href="/wiki/Forum:Yew_Grove">Yew Grove<img src="" width="15" height="15" align="left" border="0"></a></li>').appendTo('');
        $('<li id="UploadLog"><a href="/wiki/Special:Log/upload">Upload log<img src="" width="15" height="15" align="left" border="0"></a></li>').appendTo('');
        $('<li id="RSWRC"><a href="/wiki/Special:RecentChanges">Recent Changes<img src="" width="15" height="15" align="left" border="0"></a></li>').appendTo('');

Could someone please take a look at the following pages...

...and fix them up, especially removing whatever template "Afu" is; as I cannot find the source of the problem, and me tampering with codes will probably cause the Wiki to implode.

I didn't fix the whole coding(looks like a whole lot, so i let Ikin who already knows what it does fix it) but i did fix the links. The problem was that the parameter marker (thing between {{{ and }}}) had a { and } less so it ended up as template instead of parameter marker(don't let your head implode now plz) JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 13:32, November 23, 2010 (UTC)

right now I have a search box that searches rswiki. the code I have is:
<form action="" target="_blank">
<input type="hidden" name="fulltext" value="0">
<input type="text" name="search" size="30" maxlength="50"><input type="submit" value="RW">
I want it to have a option where it searches the ge like I select ge it searches that or I select rw and it searchest that. When I refer to seaching the ge I mean ''. Ulmuchiha 20:07, March 27, 2011 (UTC)
For that you should use this code:
<form action="" target="_blank">
<input type="text" name="query" size="20" maxlength="50"><input type="submit" value="GE">
That will give you a search bar to the GEDB only. If you want, I could also add buttons for members only and/or a dropdown for price ranges, but I think that would only fill your screen more, while you could as well just search and then set those things on the page where you end. If you think these things would be useful, you could request it in here. I hope this works for you. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 06:47, March 29, 2011 (UTC)

Ulmuchiha 20:16, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

What do you mean? I thought that the template adds whatever page it's transcluded on to the category if a parameter is missing. ɳex undique 04:42, April 24, 2011 (UTC)
You're right, it does. When I was looking at the category it seemed it was something to do with references in general, but I just noticed that the template's code specifically checks for missing parameters and then adds the category. Since the documentation already mentioned loc was only to be included when applicable, I assume it was always meant to be optional so I will exclude it from this last check, and include quote instead, since that is mandatory.

If anyone knows how to make parts of an image semi-transparent (translucent?), could that person possibly make a guide of it?

In GIMP, you can use the Eraser Tool by adjusting the 'Opacity' slider (this) for basic things but I'm not sure what you would use for that image. Full slayer helmet Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon platebody 20:45, May 9, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah but that wouldn't remove the background that shines through. For small objects needing semitrans I usually get the color the thing should be, then select the area and delete it, then paste back the color on. This does not leave in any textures though, so it should only be used for [[:File:Scrying pool.png|li'l]] parts of the image. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 22:19, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

to your JS file to redirect to the Monobook skin on the exchange watch pages, and if there are more pages you need to view in monobook, use a similar method. Also, try enabling scripts in your prefs instead of your JS file, because the quick preview script works via that for me, but not via my JS file.

Thanks for trying Joey, but it still doesn't work Frown. And I've had the AutoCVU enabled in my preferences for some time, I don't know why that doesn't work either. ɳex undique 23:55, May 9, 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, I can't help much more than this. I think it's mainly a problem with Wikia's skin, and not much can be done. And if it doesn't work on monobook, there might be a problem in the code. If so, you should report it at the creator of the script (suppa or Q) JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 00:58, May 10, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for trying Joey. Suppa knows about it, maybe I'll ask Quarenon and he'll know what's wrong. ɳex undique 22:35, May 10, 2011 (UTC)
Oh err... maybe you should trying to import the scripts to your monobook.js when trying to check it in monobook OK JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 22:58, May 10, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks a lot Joey! Big smile The watch script works now! ɳex undique 23:13, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

Where is a list of all the wikitable classes?

Where is a list of all the wikitable classes and code (in particular for the RS wiki). You can answer on my talk. Thanks! ~J22f~TGC 23:48, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

Simple calculator

Can someone please help me by creating a simple calculator that calculates the repair cost for degradeable armour at a repair stand in a POH? The math is located on the page Armour stand and other details are here. ~J22f~TGC 03:36, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

1) What is the purpose of using &nbsp instead of a space?

2) How do I view the edit history of my own userpages?

3) How do I override the default width of 15% for the "groupN" column of a navbox?

Thanks. ~J22f~TGC 22:42, May 11, 2011 (UTC)

1. It adds a bit more than a regular space. Most people don't use it.
2. You can add a "History" tab on the brown tab bar (the one Matthew is talking about a few posts up). Then you click it when you're on the page you want.
3. I'm not sure, sorry. ɳex undique 22:48, May 11, 2011 (UTC)
1 - Ok.
2 - I feel stupid now - That bar looks kinda useful, lol.
3 - Frown ~J22f~TGC 22:54, May 11, 2011 (UTC)
Actually nbsp means "non-breaking space." That means it's considered a character for the purposes of automatic wrapping rather than white space, preventing a line break at that point. --Saftzie (talk) 23:29, May 11, 2011 (UTC)
My bad, sorry J22f. ɳex undique 23:32, May 11, 2011 (UTC)
1) and &nbsp should have ; behind it, so &nbsp;, in case you didn't know (Rich Text Editor gives wrong example, which is why I could imagine that) and most commonly people use it because the Rich Text Editor does it, and the users don't even know they're doing that.)
2) yeah
3) add |titlewidth=<width> to the template. This can't be different per row though, it is something you can only set for all of the rows in once.
JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 00:29, May 12, 2011 (UTC)

Might be worth noting that in HTML multiple adjacent spaces only show as a single space, while multiple instances of &nbsp; do appear. Although using spaces as a positioning tool isn't advised anyway. And it's better to use something like CSS and/or tables. Promissory noteTHARKON 11:50, May 12, 2011 (UTC)

Excellent! All your information has been very helpful! Thanks again! Closed. ~J22f~TGC 17:09, May 12, 2011 (UTC)

Celestial catalytic staff conflict

User:Fizzyliquid has been editing the celestial catalytic staff article in what I consider to be an improper fashion. While you can check the talk page for some history on our argument, it boils down to this: He thinks that strong magic potions boost Magic damage by 3% per level instead of 1%, and that therefore the maximum hit of Fire Surge with a CCS and strong magic potion is 546. I am a mage in Daemonheim with a CCS, and I've never hit anything close to this, so I asked him several times to produce proof (while reverting his edits to the article in the meantime). After repeatedly stating that he had personally witnessed hits up to 440 (the calculated max hit is 434), he posted a screenshot of himself hitting 438 with Fire Surge. Despite that this is a very small amount higher than the standing maximum hit, he insists that magic potions boost by 3% per level. We've gone back and forth on the article a few times, and now he's removed the max hit paragraph altogether.

Rather than fuel an edit war, I'd like some conflict resolution, and this is the only place I can think of at which to post it. What does someone else think that we should do about the max hit information in the article? --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 05:09, April 16, 2011 (UTC)

See the Potions, Spells and Runes update on 17 November 2009. Going by that I'd have to aggree with Fizzyliquid. Promissory noteTHARKON 09:45, April 16, 2011 (UTC)
There's nothing stopping Jagex messing around with the game's physics in Daemonheim. They already do it in several other places. Also, while I haven't tested this a lot, I haven't seen fire surge hit nearly as high as I expect for 3% per level while on strong magic potions. I'll see if I can get some test data.
As a final note, the max hit formula is by no means 100% and is known to be off by up to 10 life points in either direction. Quest Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 14:41, April 16, 2011 (UTC)
