  • So, since you put that Redirect I thought I might as well try to make the Maxwell pages redirect to the intended articles. However, the first one I found a serious problem... the
    Quote
    template.

    Heh. According to the doc, you can only subdivide it into Quotation, whom from, and where he was. I tried to use [[]] without success... any ideas how we could make it redirect to Maxwell/NPC and show Maxwell instead? Using [[]] kind of works... but it also shows them :P

    • I'm kinda confused :P

      You mean you want to create a quote with Maxwell/NPC, but the name is shown as Maxwell while it is redirected to Maxwell/NPC?

      Or

      You mean you want to create a redirect page for Maxwell/NPC and Maxwell/Character?

      Or

      You want to create a redirect page for Maxwell articles and then use it in the quote?

      Looking forward to your relpy :)

    • No no, when you use quote|blabla|maxwell, it redirects to Maxwell page. However, I wanted to make it so quote|blabla|maxwell went to maxwell/NPC when it is the case of the npc (For example, the initial saying of Maxwell when you join the world or during the Adventure Dialogues) or maxwell/Character (description of items made by Maxwell the character). However, if I use Maxwell/Character, it will display as Maxwell/Character, which might not look so pleasing as if it was just Maxwell. Using the usual intrawiki redirect, [[]], it ends up showing the double braces, -[[]] said so. So I was looking for a different way to make it so it redirects correctly to which Maxwell (NPC or Character) said so.

    • Okay, I have made some changes and it's working in your wish :D

      {{quote|“Say pal, you don't look so good.<br/> You better find something to eat before night comes!|Maxwell/NPC|text=Maxwell}}

      “Say pal, you don't look so good.
      You better find something to eat before night comes!

      Maxwell/NPC

    • Err... wait a second... I think the changes did not go so well. They broke the Quote system as a whole!

      Now all the quotes are showing "message goes here" instead of the character name...

    • I just noticed... ok maybe we'll have to stick with the Maxwell page after all?

    • It's up to you because not many people will feel bad about the change or will be affected. I'm neutral though.

    • Hm. I was going to make the change because you had put the Disambiguation tag on the Maxwell Page after the problem with mobile.

        Loading editor
    • Yea then I've realised I made a mistake too, so I've removed the {{disambig}}.

      I thought the page was simply a disambiguation page, because in mobile, only 2 links were shown, there were no articles or content on [[Maxwell]].

    • Exactly. It has no content per si, it's the junction of both /NPC and /Character, just like the /Tree page... and many other pages.

        Loading editor
    • If we were to do so with the /Maxwell page, we'd also have to make the changes with other Pages of the same kind... that might be a problem though... Maybe we should wait some more to see if we end up with more Mobile problems before we decide such a move? I mean, we'd have to change a whole lot of pages which use this same structure...

      Let's wait Wikia to solve the problem, I'll report this issue to them. Hopefully this can be solved very soon.

      Thanks for the help anyways :)

    • Nahn, I thank you for helping me as well. We were looking for a solution to the problem of the Mobile redirect but the best I've been able to notice with both my Tablet and Cellphone were that it takes a while longer for these kind of pages to load. I think that so long we don't have a significant number of people complaining about this, which would mean we'd have a real problem with this, there is no sense to apply a solution which might as well significantly change the structure of the Wiki.

      I'm just thinking: "let's not do too much work for a change that will have little impact". Therefore, let's wait some more. We might find an easier and simpler solution in the long run, or it might as well turn out that there is no need for doing this.

    • Haha yea, I feel the same too.

      I've just sent them a request, hopefully they will reply me very soon.

      Cheers!
