How can I tell if I am allowed to upload an image to my wiki (as far as copyrights go)?

Where do you intend on getting the images from?

I was intending to get them from various websites (fan sites, video game blogs, Wikipedia, etc).

Ok, then it depends on the site itself. If it doesn't says on the site "Please don't steal from our site", then don't. If it says, "you may take from the site, but only if you attribute us",  then upload it with The source attributed.

However, be careful when taking from other wikis. Wikipedia's fine, so long as you give them credit. And avoid Wikia if you can.

As a general rule (at least on SmashWiki), we say that videogame screenshots are being used in a fair use way, and use that template for all such images.

So does that mean that SmashWiki allows uploading screenshots that one could find on Google Images?

Miles of SmashWiki

Technically yes, though we infinitely prefer to get them from other video game wikis, sites like Brawlsnapshots that use decrypted in-game snapshots, and official sources like the Smash Bros. DOJO!!

...I know why.
border-style and border-width are deprecated. Use
border: (width) (style) (color);
border-style and border-width are NOT deprecated. border-width, border-style, border-color are shorthands for the border-{edge}-{type} properties, border-{edge} is a shorthand for border-{edge}-{width,style,color}, and border: is a full shorthand in the same format as border-{edge} which affects all four edges.

There is no color specified by those border rules though. Also the reason for use of border-width appears to be so that only specific edges will have the border.

The issue is probably that "!width=35; style="border-style: solid; border-width: 0 1px 1px 0"| Str" is not exactly valid. attributes don't have ; in them, that looks like a bad attempt at trying to do width=35 (html/wikitext), and width: 35px; at the same time mixing up html and css syntax. "! style="width: 35px; border-style: solid; border-width: 0 1px 1px 0; border-color: black;" |" as for shortening, I recommend trying to make use of the wiki's Common.css

Tch, the page list is hard to see in these forums.


Thank you, but that issue was resolved: Click here. We just spontaneously dropped the topic here.  ;D

What you said, however, should be brought to the attention of the quoted poster, Neo. Apparently, he has been misinformed.


Is there any way to make all the links on a single page appear a certain color?


I am pretty sure you can do it by editing the CSS, lemme give it a try at the code, and I'll post it here in a second

Ok, in the wiki CSS you just edit this

a { color: green; } /*This is for normal link*/

a:visited { color: yellow; } /*Visited links*/

a:active { color: pink; } /*And I have no idea about this one*/



Tucayo & vince, try these out on your personal css, when you get a moment.

a:hover { color: white; } /* for hovering */

/* New Links, wanted pages */
a.new { color: #FF00FF; } /*This is for normal link*/

a.new:visited { color: orange; } /*Visited links*/

a.new:active { color: yellow; }

a.new:hover { color:green; }

/* external links */
a.external { color: silver; }

a.external:visited { color:gold; }

a.external:active { color: black; }

a.external:hover { color:#FFFF00; }

to explain some terminology:

* visited - is a site you have been too
* hover - when the mouse cursor is above the

and for fun, try this out:

tr:hover td { background-color:#ff6600; }

tr:hover th { background-color:#0066ff; }

(sorry if i stepped on anyone's toes with this)


Cool :D

Apparently, the external links thing didn't work for me :(

And I liked the second thing :P


my apologies, i forgot you need to add #content to the font of it. Like so:

#content a.external


I have a question that maybe someone can help explain to me:
How does one make a working character template? I've been trying to find pre-made templates through Google and browsing through other wikis, but nothing I've found has been 100% useful. I either can't access the coding that makes the template work, or when I do get the template and put it on my site (and do some minor modification), it doesn't work.

I just want a simple character template that has Name on top, then picture, then various details about the character (Gender, Role, Favorite Items, Detested Items, etc...).

I'm not looking for someone to write me a template, I'm just looking for a resource on making a template of that type, because none of the resources I've found through hours of Google have been useful. Of course, if you want to write me a template I wouldn't complain. :P

Much thanks,

The entire board is acting as the replacement for this thread.  Happy thread making.
