    Not sure if everyone has noticed but we have a transfer page for each month now on the wiki. This is to help anyone who wishes to update the database to keep it up-to-date. Please only update when a transfer occurs. Can someone help me during Monday and Tuesday to make sure that we don't miss a transfer before the deadline if possible.

    Thanks in advance
    Stig

    I will be changing the featured content page tonight. If you have any suggestions for it, let me know.

    It's amazing how much more views a page gets when it's put on the sidebar. The featured content page was up for about a month and a half before we had put it on the sidebar. The day I put it on the sidebar, it had 300 views. Now it has just short of 2,000 views.

    Just a heads up - the FM10 feature blogs will be starting mid-next week. Can anyone remember who is doing the blogs? Is it me? Also I expect the podcasts to start soon afterwards if it's anything like last year.

    Cheers hilly

    I've re-done the featured content page, if someone could give it a look and recommend any changes that'd be great. I'll be adding another 2-4 pages to it tomorrow most likely.

    Could someone with FM09 installed on their PC please pass me on a screenshot of Hugo Lloris? Thanks

    A short interview with Miles will be up on the site in a few hours. It's the first of a few interviews we've had with SI employees - the rest of them will be posted in the next few weeks/months I'd imagine. I'll make it the featured article so most users won't miss it.

    It was quieter than I expected tbh and had Gus Crazy constantly updating me with the deals. Definitely a shame that no big deal went through.

    I have found that there is no section regarding LLM aka lower league management. I think LLM is an integral part of FM series and so is a career game. We should include these two sections in the wiki.

    What it should contain:
    1. brief description about the game type.
    2. standard rules to start a game
    3. possible suggestions for these types of games

    Yes and further down I've got the up-to-date squad there - not on the FM09 page so the FM09 page just contains the FM09 content.

    Few quick suggestions:
    -Remove the "we have 100% original content" bit from the OP in the fansite section. It's not true at all - sites that have granted us permission to use such and such from their site and that's not original
    -Use a regular page as opposed to a category page for the Q&A sessions. I think we could make it look a lot better if it was that way.
    -On the 'Crewe Alexandra FM09' page do you think we should have FM09 in brackets? Small niggley thing but I think it'd look better that way. (By the way, I thought we were just having FM09, FM08, FM10 etc sections on the one page instead of having separate pages?)

    We need to have something like that on the site soon imo. Does anyone here play LLM (doesn't matter if it's by the LLM forum's strict rules or not) that could do something with this?

    Also is anyone willing to give me a hand with FM10 feature pages? I'm struggling to keep up

    For team guides there should be a page per version. Its player profiles that need to be on the same page.

    I think for the main page (the team name page eg Arsenal) should just be brief, focus on being the content page. Personally I think that Crewe one has a bit too much. I think, on the club content page, there should be;
    Links to related pages (eg FM08 page, FM09 page, stadium page)
    Brief real life info (then none on club pages)
    Basic info (eg the important things from the Information page on FM)
    Up to date squad, or real life transfers that aren't on the game. I'll do a template at about 7 in case you don't understand, and just to make it clearer.

    I'm going to use my dads dongle internet thing, so I'll be back tonight.

    Jammy - I think I know what you mean. I'll look at your template and give feedback before making any changes to the Crewe Alex page.

    For the Category 'Club Guides' have links to that page, with individual ones (e.g. Arsenal FM09) in a seperate sub category in 'Club Guides called FM09 Club Guides.

    Thoughts?

    Personally, I'd leave out the were you looking for section and just add a "FM08 article here" or something similar at the top of the page, or even keep advice for all games together to keep things consistent. But I'm not doing much on the clubs so I'm not bothered really.

    Copy the text from a blog into word and then read it would be an idea.

    To be honest, I don't like it but there's no way to get around it if we were to have a separate page for each version. I think that we should have all info related to the club on one page. Then maybe, if the general feeling was that there was too much text on one page then maybe just link to the page with FM0-whatever specific info at the top of the page.

    Oh, and you've added an (FM09) tag to some pages that have no FM09 info whatsoever, and there's no need doing that. If we were to decide that we'd put 09 at the end of 09 pages, we'd need to make sure that there was some 09-specific info on the page first.

    That's okay Tom. But if you're not going to do anything on the FM10 section, please just drop out of it. It's much less irritating saying you'll do nothing than keep making promises that you won't end up acting on. It's much easier for me that way

    I don't like it either, but what other option is there? I'm sorry, but having guides for more than one game on one page will mean things are going to get lost, people will get confused as to what is for what and it generally won't be easy to use.

    I only added tags to pages that were in the Club Guides category, all of which should be for FM2009 seeing as that's the only game we've been around for. I automatically assumed that, as all of them were taken from these forums, they would all have FM09 info on them. Care to link me to the ones that don't? They can be deleted, no point having a page with no FM info.

    Athletic Bilbao is one that I remember.

    Bilbao is deleted - can be restored but no point having a page with no FM info, it's just wasting space and doesn't have anything specifically to do with any FM.

    Alan -
    On the about page, how would I made Template:shortbanner have all the text in the middle? I tried
    but it didn't work...
    Thought that, as that is one of the most visited page, it should be a bit more organised than it was.

    Also, how do you seperate the templates?

    I think the banner looks great as it is tbh. If we were to have it centred, it'd probably screw everything up (literally).

    What do you mean by separating templates?

    I'll do the mock-up of the team page tomorrow, too tired to do it now.

    Have a look at the About page, there are four templates used. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th are all inside the first one, 3rd and 4th inside the second (etc). Not sure how to split them?

    Fwiw, I don't know who it was that removed JSalter - I copied the exact same list as before.

    They look better like that imho. I could change them, but it involve deleting and rearranging templates and it would get very messy.

    You don't have to make a template for every text box btw.

    I take it you don't understand the purpose of templates at all then?

    Templates are used to automatically input the same few lines text (or text boxes, logos, almost anything that can be used with wiki software) onto pages that you want them to appear on. It just a lazy man's way of doing things - instead of typing out the same big long code on 20 different pages, you will just have to type a small code into those pages. The reason we started using templates with text boxes is because they take up a lot of code and makes the edit page look a bit confusing. That doesn't mean you have to use templates, I don't even use them all the time.

    To answer your question, all you have to do is dump all the text in the template page onto the page you were using the template on.

    To make the text boxes easier for you, I made a few text box templates a while back - greenbox, bluebox and text box.
    Greenbox is like the green boxes on the main page, bluebox is like the blue boxes on the main page and textbox is like the boxes used in disclaimers.

    What you need to do when using the greenbox template for example is type:
    Code:
    {{greenbox
    |text=Whatever you want to type in here
    }}
    If you want to make your own template to use on different pages, but maybe you want a word or two to be different on a few pages (take the start of a player profile as an example), you need to do this:
    Code:
    {{{name}}} is a {{{nationality}}} {{{position}}}. He currently plays for {{{club}}} in the {{{league}}}. He also plays 
    for the {{{nation}}} national team.
    Then when you want to implement this template onto a certain page, you'd type:
    Code:
    {{name of template
    |name=
    |nationality=
    |position=
    |club=
    |league=
    |nation=
    }}
    Theoretically we could use that for player profiles, but we'd end up typing more text than usual so it'd be completely pointless.


    Can't believe it took me this long to reply to such a small question

    Oh, and stig - if you don't want an asterisk appear as a bullet point, you just stick * around it. I see you've been trying to get around that a bit, well at least I think that's what you were trying to do.

    Not really, there's bits and pieces in the club guides but no real guides on formations. The tactics page has a bit of info but not all that much. I think it's fair to say that we've no real tactical experts here. I could try some myself, but it's likely I'd be talking complete and utter crap

    That's tactics an LLM pages we've had requests for the last few days. I'll stick a to-do list up at the top of the current events page and see if that gets us anywhere. I'll also have a look through FM-Britain for tactics guides as we're allowed to use their stuff and they're a great site for tactics. That's about all I can do though.

    I don't like that tbh. You can barely see it on the page so people looking for previous versions may not be able to see it.

    I'm not sure what else it is about it, but for me it just doesn't look right.

    Guys, I'm changing the sub heading on all player profiles to 'Football Manager 2009 Information'. Would anyone be able to give me a hand doing this? If yes, starting from the bottom would be great (y) as I'm going from A.

    Also, if someone can help, can you make sure there are two ='s? It makes it so the sub heading isnt the same size as the title.

    Thanks

    No I can't delete pages. Over the next week or so, i'll sort out the club guides and make FM09 pages and categories and have the current information are general pages for the clubs including the new links for the FM09 pages near the top of each 'new' club guide. If anyone is confused by this let me know.
