  • Hi, I have a question about the template: Recipe. Is there a .css or a .js specific to this template?

    Recently, I wanted to change the Recipe template to improve the mobile display. During my test, the "Template:Recipe" behaves differently than the exact same code copied under another name (Template:Cuikuitest). I don't understand why and I hope you can enlighten me.

    • Hey there, I looked into this for a bit now, but the recipe template is very old and I'm honestly not that experienced with JS customization. So far, I haven't found anything directly related to the recipe template, neither in the included CSS files (apart from the "icon frame" class, but that shouldn't affect anything) nor in the two custom JS files imported in ImportJS.

      Could you maybe give me more specifics on what you were trying to achieve or more information on the differences in behavior when you copy the code into a differently named template?

    • I just got the answer by constructing an example. The type of template (data, infoicon, etc.) changes the way the template is displayed in the mobile view. The recipe is labeled "Data" while Cuikuitest was labeled "infoicon", hence the difference.

      I have an example here. The first is a recipe as "data", the second is a recipe (same code) as "infoicon", the third is the old recipe (using "position: absolute;" instead of "icon-frame"). They look the same in desktop view, but they are all different in mobile view.

      The old version was a bit broken, the new version is better but still broken for the long model. There may be room for improvement. Thank you anyway for your response.

    • Ah, I see. Good on you for figuring it out :)

  • Hello, I'm 123WL.

    I wonder if this wikia can add food values mult (for warly, wortox, and so on).

    look forward to your reply.

  • Right, so I asking if we can make a page of guides for equipment, what are they useful for, how do you obtain them, and when is it recommended to use them.

    The reason for this is I know there are guides on the wiki that assist newer players for various maps, but when I just started out the game was quite confusing for me, especially on combat guidance.

    What do you say?

  • Hey there. I noticed that the wiki doesn't have Discussions enabled, and wanted to bring forward the proposal to you and the rest of the staff regarding it. It is essentially a place where fans of Don't Starve - not just editors - can converse and interact about the game and its expansions. It wouldn't conflict with the wiki's already existing content, rather it would be a social extension to the wiki. Obviously, this is a bit of a different feature so I am very interested in hearing the wiki staff's opinions about this feature. If you have any questions about it, please let me know, and I can try to answer them.

    Thanks.

    • First off, I'd like to apologize for the late reply.

      I share MMueck and Luvian's concerns. The Discussions feature, while it might (might) bring in more users, I do not see any real benefit from enabling it. As MMueck mentioned, the game's official forum is the community's main hub as of now, and there are numerous other platforms that serve the same purpose, and are already well-known and widely used. It seems quite redundant to create yet another one.

      The wiki's main purpose is largely just an encyclopedia of everything related to the game. A collection of information presented in a quickly navigable and understandable way, and it pretty much cemented its role as such among the community. The only discussions that really take place in the current wiki forum are almost always about the site and its maintainenece, rather than game mechanics and strategies, and I don't see any real purpose in pushing the wiki to be a platform for those as well.

      I believe doing so will most likely either end in it never happening because the wiki isn't as attractive or popular and well-known as other platforms when it comes to this role, especially the official Klei forums, or push the wiki further away from its role as a Don't Starve encyclopedia and from people handling it as such, which might impact its ability to stay up-to-date or general article quality due to the additional moderation required.

  • Hey mueck, where did you find the name "Rocky Beach" in the code? I've been wondering where biome names and other data are in the game.

    • No, I agree, the chosen names are more aesthetically pleasing. I just would like something to tell readers that the name is not canon, so as to avoid confusion (like I was experiencing, trying to find them in the code).

      • Oh, I did not notice that the plural thing is a naming convention. I would be in favor of changing them all to singular then, but not without other's input (like yours), I'm partial to keeping titles singular but I don't wanna impose y'know
      • I'm fine with single adjective titles, I think it sounds cool.
      • I agree with changing Stalagmite Biomes name, but I don't know what to replace it with yet..

  • 1. I've been adding quotes to pages recently and was wondering if there are any rules or guidelines for picking the quote that will be automatically displayed?

    2. Should pages be written using Canadian English, UK English, US English, or should they try and be written in a way that avoids the differences between them?

    • I'll give it a go, but I do really prefer the visual editor. Maybe the code could be edited so it doesn't do that when new quotes are input with the visual editor?

    • Unfortunately, we can't actually do that. We cannot control what the visual editor outputs in source code, as that editor along with its UI is exclusive to Fandom (the service used to host this wiki) and can only be altered by its staff.

      I agree the visual editor is intuitive and easy to use, especially for newer contributors, but it has some bugs and there are a few problems when you get into more advanced editing and formatting. I highly recommend getting the hang of using the source editor at some point, it actually becomes easier to just write a template's code directly instead of filling parameters in the visual editor.
