Re: Help Edit

Hi Vincent, thanks for the message. The auto-generated table of contents is designed to work on a per-article basis. If you want more than one on a single article you would need to make them manually somehow, which is excessive for a sandbox page. There's no way to transclude TOCs either, as far as I know.

Your reference issue is totally solvable, though; I can think of two possible solutions. When you refer to the <noinclude></noinclude> tags I assume you actually mean <onlyinclude></onlyinclude>. These tags allow you to transclude the content of one page onto another page without rewriting it. For example, on the page TES:Moot/August 2018, we have the tags around the summary of what was decided upon, and on TES:Moot/Archive we have the code {{:TES:Moot/August 2018}} so that the content within the tags appears on the archive page. If you don't use the tags at all then it will just transclude the whole page.

This is very interesting and I use it a lot, but it actually isn't a great solution in your situation, because it would require a ton of subpages on your part (annoying to keep track of). I think the best way for you to separate references would just be to use different reference groups for each region (temporarily, until you actually publish the pages). We use this formatting for OOG references on lore pages already. So for the Greenshade section you would format the references like <ref group="greenshade">''Ref''</ref>, and instead of using {{Refs}} you would use the References header and <references group="greenshade"/>. If you want to use OOG references as well (which require their own group) you could just call it <references group="greenshadeOOG"/> or something. Then you could have ref groups for all the different regions running at the same time without interfering with each other. —Atvelonis (talk) 17:43, August 5, 2018 (UTC)

Bot Edit

Hi Vincent, it looks like Wikia's recent HTTPS update accidentally broke AutoWikiBrowser for HTTPS-enabled wikis, so I'm not going to be able to use the bot for a little while. I'm not sure how high-priority fixing this issue is on the company's end, but I'm guessing they would want to get it corrected sooner rather than later, considering how many powerusers rely on bots for large-scale edits. So you might want to fix the links manually, or just wait until the AWB bug is cleared up. —Atvelonis (talk) 21:10, August 15, 2018 (UTC)
