New Spellbook Template
« am: 2. Feb 2017, 01:07 »
I thought now was the best time to get a better Spellbook Template up for the wiki since the old version was just burning my eyes off every time I looked at it. I'm gonna admit it now, this template was most definitely not my best piece of work. Big, clunky, too big for the page *shudders*, a nightmare. However, thanks to the Wikia (the company that hosts all the Wikis) staff, we manage to work out a new system that is a major improvement on the previous design. At the moment it can only be seen here, but as soon as the feedback process is complete it will be spread to all the remaining faction pages so that we can be rid of the old template.

The template takes the ingame look of the spellbook and allows users to hover on top of the spells to see extended descriptions. This descriptions are all taken from Mordor subpages, which means that they are counted in the page count but won't be added to the search results if a users look up other pages. To access them you can either click on the desired image or append the faction page with "/Spell_Name" where Spell_Name is the actual spell of the name.

This post is meant as a feedback section and to suggest additional formatting. We're quite limited in the changes to the functionality we can make because I'm still unfamiliar with Javascript but you can try suggesting them anyways. We will make further use of the Tooltip Javascript later, I've got a couple ideas but they need a bit more tinkering.

I like this very much - it brings us closer to the mod itself. What I thought is that the titles of each spell should be bolded (nothing importand but still a small improvement.)

Good idea, I'll take care of it.

Well, since everybody seems okay with this I'll move ahead and make this official. I'll be overhauling the rest of the factions soon and then if the "Spellbook Powers Pages" comes to its term then we take care of that slowly as spellbook power pages come up.

The News on the Spellbook has finally come out, I can finally speak openly (to some extent). Since the spellbook is meant to get a new format I'm just going to update the Lorien and Mordor pages so as to have places to do test and get feedback from. The rest of the factions will get their overhaul once the new spellbook for individual factions are revealed, whether it be by news or at the patch release. This is also the reason why I think we should hold off for now on linking the spellbook pages till the final changes are made and the new spellbooks are released.

This sounds like a good idea. Even if faction spellbooks are released by news, we should still keep the old spellbooks until the patch is released to prevent confusion. Once the new patch is released, the spellbook mechanics should be a part of the Game Mechanics page as well since any new players might be confused by how it works.

Just curious about the way you worded this. Did you know about it beforehand?

I'm one of the Beta Testers so I did know about the changes but I didn't know when a news would be released or when the patch is planned for so I thought it was now or never to get started testing with the new spellbook template.
