Title: the new Style Guide
Post by: Q_x on August 05, 2010, 06:57:03 PM
Making the serious rearrangement is never easy...
Guys, I hope you like the slightly informal convention. Feel free to do anything there, show more works to illustrate what is going on - this are your words, works and your opinion.

I just thought the topic was too important to be lost with time, and so warm and informative... It not only guides to the right style, but also shows the very right kind of cooperation and discussion.

I still have huge problems both with the language (sometimes look mystical when inspected after a while) and the syntax of MediaWiki. I was unable to make the text flow on the right to the gallery and for the external files to be shown.

In case you've missed it, the style guide is a part made for this purpose:

I dig the concept of artists elaborating on their style and giving hints how to achieve that kind of style :-)

Took me some time but I figured out the alignment issues so now the text is shown next to the images. Basically the <gallery> tag works like a <div> in HTML and enforces a line break. So don't use the <gallery> functionality if you're looking to place text next to the images. Rather use the [[File]] (= [[Image]]) tag and the thumb attribute.

Here's an example of the currently used syntax:
[[File:Guard_2.png|thumb|left|x200px|'''Female guard''']]

To enforce a line break at a certain point, use:
<br style="clear: both" />
