Item Page Template

From The Escapists Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a template for making an page on a item before you start making pages you should have an understanding of what the usage of braces ({}) are. Braces are used to 'shortcut' a big line of code to make is easier to understand when editing a page and to make the page smaller. You should also have a great understanding of The Escapists.

{{Stubs}}

The first thing that will be put on the page is a {{Stub}} a stub is used to tell others if the page has little detail and needs more attention don't use the {{Stub}} if the page has a lot of detail. Also notice the two braces ({}) surounding the word. If you wanted to add the 'Stub' without the two braces ({}) you would have to use this big line of code:

<div class="nomobile">{{Ambox
| image = [[File:Crafting Note.png]]
| type = ''This article is a [[:Category:Stubs|stub]]. You can help {{SITENAME}} by {{fullurl|{{FULLPAGENAME}}|action{{=}}edit|text=expanding it}}.''
| border = orange
}}<br /></div><!--
--><div class="mobileonly" style="text-align:center">''This article is a [[:Category:Stubs|stub]]. You can help {{SITENAME}} by {{fullurl|{{FULLPAGENAME}}|action{{=}}edit|text=expanding it}}.''<br /><br /></div><includeonly>[[Category:Stubs]]</includeonly><noinclude>

This is why we use {{Stub}} to make the compress all this code into a single word. Below is an example of what a {{Stub}} looks like:


This article is a stub. You can help The Escapists Wiki by expanding it.

{{Item infobox}}

The next think that goes onto the page is the {{item infobox}} this is used to tell others the statistics of the item it follows like this:

{{Item infobox
| contraband = true
| consumable = true
| durability = true
| outfit = true/false
| flavor = This text will display underneath the item image.
| uses = 1-5
| weapon = 1-5
| digging = 1-5
| cutting = 1-5
| chipping = 1-5
| unscrewing = 1-5
}}

There are many statistics you can use in {{Item infobox}} for example if a item has digging of 4 where is says digging you would put the number for after the (=) but if the item has a cutting of 0 you wouldn't include cutting in the infobox. If the item is contraband you would put true after the (=) but if it is not contraband you wouldn't include it in the inbobox. There is also a 'flavor' this is used to describe little details of the item; for example if the item is only found in a certain prison you would write: An exclusive item to (Prison). All this can be very confusing to wrap your head around but once you understand you will be editing pages easily. Here is an example of an {{Item infobox}}: on the right:

Item Page Template
96px
This text will display underneath the item image.
Statistics
ItemID: Unspecified
Will be confiscated
Outfit
Consumable Item
Limited-Use Item
Uses 5
Weapon 4 / 5
Digging 3 / 5
Cutting 5 / 5
Chipping 3 / 5
Unscrewing 2 / 5

The last thing to do is click on the red 96px on the infobox and upload the image of the item. So that's all the code done now its the fun part.

Usage

The next thing you want to do it describe the items use. This is done by first starting with the title this is done by writing ==Usage== first, then writing text. Notice the two (==) between the text this is used to tell the wiki to make the text a title. This text can include things like:
The item is used to craft the (Item)
Can be used in favors.
Try to include the most amount of detail in this if you don't have a lot of detail use the {{Stub}} as shown above.

Obtaining

This is very simmilar to the usage but instead of describing how the item can be used instad describe how to find the item. Again this title is done by using ==Obtaining== again notice the two (==) between the text. Things that can be included in this can be:
Found in desks.
Can be crafted with the following recipe:

Result As a Component INT
ITEM ITEM x1 + ITEM x1 + ITEM x1 60

That leads to our next segment. Crafting!

Crafting

Crafting is much less confusing. It can be done by using this code:

{| class="wikitable"
|-
! '''Result''' !! '''As a Component''' !! '''[[Stats|INT]]'''
|-
| {{item link|Crafted Item}} || {{item link|Item Required}} x1 + {{item link|Item Required}} x1 + {{item link|Item Required}} || Stats/INT
|}

There are a few things you can do with this. Firstly if the item is used in making an item used '''As a Component''' if the item is made with using the items use '''Components'''. Next thing to do is change the Crafted item to what you get from the craft, then change the Item Required to what is used in the craft. The last thing is if your going to show more than one caft just add another:

|-
| {{item link|Crafted Item}} || {{item link|Item Required}} x1 + {{item link|Item Required}} x1 + {{item link|Item Required}} || Stats/INT

before the '|}'. Heres an example of what it will look like with more recipes:

{| class="wikitable"
|-
! '''Result''' !! '''As a Component''' !! '''[[Stats|INT]]'''
|-
| {{item link|Crafted Item}} || {{item link|Item Required}} x1 + {{item link|Item Required}} x1 + {{item link|Item Required}} || Stats/INT
|-
| {{item link|Crafted Item}} || {{item link|Item Required}} x1 + {{item link|Item Required}} x1 + {{item link|Item Required}} || Stats/INT
|}

And this is what it looks like with items:

Result Components INT Defense
Guard Outfit.png Guard Outfit Jar of Ink.png Jar of Ink x1 + Infirmary Overalls.png Infirmary Overalls x1 50 +1

Trivia

Trivia is not used very often and is only used if the item is a reference to something an example of this can be found at Penarium Barrel.

Notes

Notes is used to describe certain things that don't fit under 'Usage' or 'Obtaining'

Bugs

This is again not used very often and is only used if there is a bug in the item. Again an example of this can be found at Penarium Barrel.

Additional Information

So your almost done! but there are a few more things you should know. The first thing is if you talk about another item you should link it by surrounding the items name with [[]] for example:
[[Roll of Duct Tape]] turns into Roll of Duct Tape


The next thing is that if you see a item in red it means that the page hasn't been created. For example:
PAGENAME

The third thing is if you talk about the item you are writing about surround it in '''PAGENAME''' for example:
This page is called '''Item Page Template'''. Becomes: This page is called Item Page Template.

The forth thing is that if something is only included in the console versions before you talk about it use {{Console only}} This is what it looks like:

PhoneController.png Console and Mobile Only: This information applies only to the Console version and Mobile version of The Escapists.


and and example of this can be found at Dead Rat.

The last thing is that if you are talking about a The Escapists: The Walking Dead item instad of using

{{item infobox
| contraband = true
| consumable = true
| durability = true
| outfit = true
| flavor = This text will display underneath the item image.
| uses = 1
| weapon = 1
| digging = 1
| cutting = 1
| chipping = 1
| unscrewing = 1
}}

Use this instead:

{{TWD Item infobox
| consumable = true
| outfit = true
| flavor = This text will display underneath the item image.
| image = Custom Image
| uses = 1
| digging = 1
| cutting = 1
| chipping = 1
| unscrewing = 1
| damage = 1
| RPS = 1
| attacktime = 1
| range = 1
| projectiles = 1
| stoppingpower = Medium
| maxspread = 1
| noiselevel = Low
}}

So that's it! We here at The Escapists wiki hope you help out the wiki and make it enjoyable for everyone. If you have any questions please post them on my talk page at: User talk:UnderTheRubble and if you have any issues post them on the The Escapists Wiki:Admin noticeboard.
