Thank you for your interest in contributing to our shipboard encyclopedia. Simple beginner instructions follow.

Creating a new page

To create a new page, just make a name and surround it with double square brackets like so: A New Page. When you save the page, the link will show up and you can click on it to create the new page.

Linking to existing pages

To link to existing pages, use the same double square brackets. For example, here’s a link to the the Index page: Main Page

Linking to a page with different text

If you don’t want to use the page’s name as the link text, you can specify your own text by placing a vertical bar | and the link text in the link like so: The Text To Display

Linking to characters and items

To link to a character or item, use the same double square brackets, but also use a colon. The text to put in the brackets is the slug for the character. Here is an example: Amstill Brown

If your character has no slug, you can use the ID number.

For PCs and NPCs in your campaign, you can just use the PC/NPC Link Lookup on the editing bar above. It’s the folder that looks like a little man is trapped in it!

Linking to characters and items with different text

Just like wiki links, it’s possible to link to a character or item using alternate text. Here’s an example: Cadet Brown

HTML and Textile

To style things how you want, you can use either HTML (with some restrictions) or a simple formatting language called Textile. It’s up to you, but Textile is pretty easy, while simultaneously allowing for lots of customization.
