Using this Steel City wiki
This Wiki, This Steel City
Pay attention to the tags. Pages tagged “meta” deal with rules or gameplay.
The colours might change; I find the one for “used link” to be illegible, so I’ll probably have to change that. Now, back to our canned text.
To get you started, here are some examples of what you can do with the wiki. To see how these work, click on the edit icon next to the page title at the top and just start playing around. Don’t worry, you won’t break anything.
Creating a new page
To create a new page, just make a name for it and surround it with double square brackets like so: A New Page. When you save the page, the link will show up and you can click on it to create the new page.
Linking to existing pages
To link to an existing page, click the Wiki Link button on the right. You can quickly look up the page you want and insert a link to it.
Linking to characters
For PCs and NPCs in your campaign, use the Character Link button to the right (as you edit).
I am discovering that tags are useful. (Go ahead, hit the Stormer tag to see all the characters who got powers in the Silver Storm.) Two things that I’ve found:
The easiest (and for me intuitive) way to create a new tag is to type it in the tags field and then press Tab. However, you can use the comma key (,) instead of Tab on things like, oh, an iPad where there is no Tab key.
HTML and Textile
Some useful HTML Entities
It all gets turned to HTML eventually, but characters like + have special meanings in Textile. So maybe you want to replace them with entities, which are surrounded by & and ; characters.
|Hyphen or minus sign||#45||-|
|Per cent sign||#37||%|
To make a table, surround each cell with pipe characters (so two columns is three pipe characters total). Make sure there are blank lines before and after the table.l
|To||Use, followed by a period||Example formatting|
|Center a cell’s contents||=||Eyes Blue|
|Right align a cell’s contents||>||Heads 3|
|Left align a cell’s contents (default)||<||Legs 2|
The \ and / characters let you do colspans and rowspans, respectively.
|Span several columns||\ colspan||Long text that should span 2 columns.|
|Comte de St. Germain||Immortal who meets for coffee with Nicholas Flaumel||623|
|Ricochet||Speedster; member of Confederacy of Justice.||29|
1 Telling you how is beyond the scope of this page, but the Textile page describes it.
