Adding and Editing content

  • Due to stray advertisement bots and vandalism, several pages have been locked to only registered wikia accounts. Please register or log in if you already have an account.
  • Recommended to edit in source view mode instead of visual, most of the scripts will not appear when viewing in visual mode.
  • Due to many constant changes to the game, a lot of information can become out of date rather quickly.
    • If you see anything that is wrong, free correct it and leave a note on your edit.
    • If you don't have the necessary information to correct it, then just simply type in {{Outdate}} on top of the page. This will mark the page as Outdated for other editors to fix.
    • Or if you're not sure if something is incorrect, leave a message in the discussion for that page or talk about it at the forum.
Transclusion Articles

Many articles are using transcluded information from other articles. This way you only need to edit the information in one location, rather than a dozen different locations asking for the same information. The following are some articles which uses transclusion.

  • Bestiary Drops transcluded to Material Dropped by via categorytree
  • Recipes Uses transcluded to Material Used in via categorytree
  • Quest Location transcluded to Areas Quest via DPL

Data Entry Editors

  • Want to help fill in data? These pages needs your help!
    • "Outdated Articles" that needs correction
    • We have "Stubs" which lacks a critical amount of information, the information missing is marked in a blue question mark like this Qmark.
    • "Wanted Articles" which are pages linking to wanted information
    • and articles requiring Verification.
      • These especially need monster CLs/HPs/Spawn Locations for each area, as all animated had an HP change on December 8th, 2008.
      • And when you do finish a page, make sure remove the Stub/Wanted Article/Verification marks around the page.
  • And some helpful resources for adding new pages
    • If you're telling the location of an an object (animated, NPC, etc), check the Map Guide first so you can give EXACT coordinates, rather than approximations.
    • If you need a templates, you can find them here: Templates. Some are documented on the templates project page.

Image Entry Editors

  • Love taking screenshots? Then upload some images!
    • We're still missing some NPCs and maps! See what images we currently have or Upload some.
      • Multiple Upload Page for multiple pictures.
      • PNGs are the best for zOMG screenshots of any kind, as they are lossless bitmaps and space efficient.

User Guide Editors

  • Like writing guides, and want to share your wisdom to others? By all means add them to the articles.
    • We're still looking for a uniform way to organize user guides so it doesn't appear as a wall of text on an article. For the time being please leave short tips and notes if it pertains to the article. If it is a full guide that spans several pages long, please create a new article, and add the category Guides to it.

VisualEditor

The VisualEditor

Wikia editor2

The classic editor

Editing on Fandom is as simple as clicking the "Edit" button on a page. Doing so will take you to an edit page where you can make changes to the page and add new information and media, correct errors, or update the formatting.

Depending on whether you are logged in or not, you may receive a different editing experience:

Help:VisualEditor
Most anonymous and newer users will see the VisualEditor. It's an editing experience based around showing you an accurate visual representation of your changes.
Help:Classic editor
Other users will see the classic editor, including the older visual editing experience and basic source wikitext editing.

Quick tips

  • Once you are in an editor, you can use the available tools to quickly add and remove information, change the formatting, add new images and videos, update the page's layout, and much more! Once you're done making your changes, just click the "Save page" button to update the page.
  • Don't be afraid if you "break" anything. All edits to a page are stored in the page history, and if something does go wrong you can simply revert to an older version.
  • If you want to edit a page without clicking the "Edit" button, you can press E on your keyboard, and the page will automatically load the preferred editor.
  • Editing is not yet possible through the Fandom app.

Choosing an editor

Logged in users can choose their default editor from a dropdown list in their user preferences (found here).

Setting Meaning
VisualEditor Shows the VisualEditor on all communities.
Classic rich-text editor
(where available)
Shows the classic rich-text editor where available.
If not, the source editor is shown.
Source editor Shows the basic source editor on all communities.

Anonymous users will almost always see the VisualEditor by default. In a few specific cases, the VisualEditor may not be available on a particular community.

Additionally, the alternative editors can still be found under the Edit button dropdown - for example, you can still access the classic editor from the dropdown even if the VisualEditor is the default.
