Gallery Packed-hover[edit source]

So I have a question with the gallery parameter. Is it possible to make the caption larger than the picture when hovering over it to make it similar ingame? Fireball (talk) 19:45, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi Fireball. I can make some changes so the caption fills the whole image size when hovering over it, if that is what you are looking for. It would probably not be possible to make the caption larger than the image it goes on top of. --Kittymmeow (talk) 07:16, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
That sounds fantastic thanks I would just make the image larger then. Fireball (talk) 11:47, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
Also how do I change the background picture? I'm trying to get the link correct for CSS as this Background pic do I upload it first then set it? Fireball (talk) 17:24, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
Okay, I have updated the gallery style. You can see it on my userpage sandbox. To make a gallery like this (rather than the default style), add class="fullcaption" to the gallery tag. As for the background, I uploaded a smaller filesize version of the file and set it as the background for you. It may take a few minutes to update. --Kittymmeow (talk) 00:55, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the help! Really appreciated. Fireball (talk) 01:42, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Admin Request for this wiki[edit source]

Hello, I would like to request becoming an admin for this wiki. I recently just updated all the pages I have access to up to date with the latest game patch, .27.

There are a few however, that I don't have access to, of which I would like the privileges that allow me to edit protected pages, thank you.

Uploading Multiple Files[edit source]

Hello, I am trying to upload multiple files, but I simply cannot get it to work, at all.

I've been to the Gamepedia site, and tried to install File uploader, and I (think) I got the gadget installed. But I can't find the Gadget definition, and it's not clear where I'm supposed to insert the code.

And for MsUpload there's no direction for how to use that either. I read it's an extension that's already enabled by default, but where the hell is it?

Mildly frustrated at it. It should be very simple to upload multiple files. Hope you can help out, thanks.

(previous unsigned post by Winnz)

Hello! Sorry for the confusion. MSupload is the file uploader built in to the source editor. When editing the page, above the text field there is a yellow bar that says "Drop files here". When editing a page, you can drag and drop files from your computer's file browser to upload them. It doesn't matter what page you are editing while uploading the files, but editing a Category page allows the option of adding the uploaded files to the category in a single step. You can also click the button in the editor toolbar that looks like this and it should bring up a standard upload interface where you can select multiple files at once.
The multi file uploader gadget you linked requires the Gadgets extension, which I would need to enable for you before it will work. Please test out MSupload and see if it meets your needs, and if you find that you would still like me to enable the multi uploader gadget, just let me know and I can do that for you. --Kittymmeow (talk) 12:18, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
Finally, I found the MsUpload-thingy, idk why I didn't notice the (somewhat) obvious upward arrow. I barely use that formatting line in the source editor. Since, bolding, links, and embedding images all can be done through just typing directly in the source code, and you get the same result on the page you're on. Whereas uploading files puts it on the server, and isn't locked to a single page. It's not super intuitive I would find it there. But since you mentioned you can couple the images to categories directly this way, I see why it makes a little more sense. Thanks for the help! Skolander (talk) 15:24, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

Request for TippingOver Extension to be installed[edit source]

I would like to add tooltips to the wiki. I can understand that I need the TippingOver Extension installed before I am able to do that.

So if you could set that up, I should be able to figure out how it works if I fiddle around with the templates for a while. Thanks in advance. Skolander (talk) 12:28, 5 December 2019 (UTC)

I've sent in the installation request, it should be good to go shortly. I see you have already found the help page for the extension, let me know if you have any other questions! --Kittymmeow (talk) 13:08, 6 December 2019 (UTC)
Hello again. I've got the Templates I want setup correctly now. But they don't function exactly how I would like, it may be a limitation of the extension itself, but here's my issue:
I previously just had a bunch of effects that I linked to the Status Effects page when mentioned, where all the effects' descriptions are listed in detail. The tooltips I plan to make are going to replace that function, but I would still like them to link to said page. However, it does not seem like the extension allows for the link to redirect to somewhere other than the basepage of the tooltip. See Toxic Mist for example.
When you click the link, I would like it to redirect the user to Status Effects. I have tried using the #REDIRECT command, but then the Tooltip extension stops working, which is already finnicky to begin with. (You must use the link button in the source code editor for it to work, you cannot manually type [[...]] around a link.)
The reason I cannot use the Status Effects page as a base page for the extension, is because I got multiple different tooltips that I would like to link to it.
The only solution I have been able to come up with, is transcluding the entire status effects page into the Toxic Mist page using the command {{:Status Effects}}.
It doesn't feel like an elegant nor a long term solution though. ✨Skolander✨ (talk) 00:32, 12 December 2019 (UTC)
Hm. I've never personally tried getting TO to work with redirects, but I could see that being a reasonable limitation. Redirects are generally not supposed to be used as any sort of content pages, they're just there to facilitate navigation, so I wouldn't be surprised if TO doesn't work well with them.
That aside, I have two possible solutions for you, though neither of them are what you are currently doing.
The first solution is a workaround that TO does allow, which is to use separate tooltips for anchored section links: for example, linking to Status Effects#Mobility (you can obscure that by using a different display text for the link) can have its own tooltip at Tooltip:Status Effects-Mobility, and so on. However, that would require a separate heading for every single status effect, which isn't super convenient, especially if the game adds more types of status effects over time.
The other solution is probably a better solution in the long run, though it would be more work in the short term, which is to have each individual status effect on its own page, and just use the actual Status Effects page as an index for navigating between them. I can introduce you to Cargo which is another extension that you can use to make creating the index page easier, if that's something you're interested in.
As for the issue with tooltips not working if you type the link in manually, I'm not sure at all what the issue would be and definitely should not be how it works. Does it happen consistently? --Kittymmeow (talk) 18:41, 12 December 2019 (UTC)

Background Image for Mobile[edit source]

Hello again, I would like to add this image to the background of the Mobile version of the wiki, but I have no clue how.

I can understand you're supposed to add some code to MediaWiki:Mobile.css, so if you can give me some guidance or add the code for me that would be appreciated.

As for the Tooltip extension thing, I found out it had nothing to do with the source code editor, it was simply the extension requiring you to update the cache after every single edit for it to work. Kind of annoying, but it is what it is. ✨Skolander✨ (talk) 01:35, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
