Talk:4e Rituals

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


Well, I'm working on the preload. I've got about all I can do done for it. If someone could add in a bit for the skill check table/results that'd be great. I really suck with HTML and wiki tables aren't my thing. Thanks to Sledged for the 4e Ritual template, I lucked into it while trying to create a new page with the same title. Next task is probably going to include reformatting this page so it looks more like the 4e Powers page. That'll be a fun one... --Taritus 20:56, 24 July 2008 (MDT)

I know you just spent a lot of time working on the preload, but I would recommend that, instead of a preload, you use the modern method of a form. A good example can be found here (their a lot more confusing, but their results are spectacular!), or for a more advanced, although non-working, example check out this. If you'd like some help just let me know, I'd be more than willing to help out. --Green Dragon 11:34, 25 July 2008 (MDT)
Oh, damn. Didn't know we had those. If I can figure out how to do the forms well I may convert the power preload to that as well.--Taritus 14:21, 25 July 2008 (MDT)
Okeedokee... Any links to any actual documentation on how to create a form? I don't so much need a guiding hand as a jump start. Looking at the examples you gave me didn't do much but confuse me. I always forget to sign my posts...--Taritus 14:51, 25 July 2008 (MDT)
In the Form: DnD Spell example you gave me you have a little drop down box. When I run through the actual code I can't find any place where the elements of the drop down box are defined. I plan on using that for the category of the rituals. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Taritus (talkcontribs) 15:38, 25 July 2008 (MDT). Please sign your posts.
Mediawiki's semantic forms page should help. Let me know if you want more links. Hope this helps! --Green Dragon 17:37, 25 July 2008 (MDT)
Well, thank you for that. Doesn't really help with what I need. The basic format is easy to copy from the other forms. I understand how to make a form. What I don't understand is, how are the schools in the list on this determined? I can't find any where in the code, the template, any place where it defines the elements of the list... I understand that it's taking some of the things like the 'test' text from the actual MySpell page, but I still can't find out how the list elements are defined, I know that they can be defined because they exist in older versions of the page.--Taritus 12:20, 26 July 2008 (MDT)
OHHOHO! Found what I need. Maybe.--Taritus 16:40, 28 July 2008 (MDT)
