GK: Almunia
DR: Sagna

appears as

[quote name='ahmufcwafc']How do you add images with this software?[/quote]

You need to upload the picture but file uploads are disabled.

By the way, thanks Peter. :D

[quote name='peter-evo']You're welcome, all this new tech stuff is a bit overwhelming :o[/QUOTE]

Yeah, Wikispaces was simpler. But this looks a lot better, more professional.

I've finished the Arsenal page bar a logo, can someone check it out to make sure it's alright please?

Also did a bit on the Premier League page, so I have something to link it to.

[quote][B]How do I enable uploading?[/B]

File uploads are an often-used feature of MediaWiki, but are disabled by default in all current release versions. To enable them, first make the upload directory (default images) writable by the web server (chmod 777 or allow the Apache user to write to it, etc.) then set [B][URL="http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgEnableUploads"]$wgEnableUploads[/URL][/B] to true in LocalSettings.php [I](i.e. "$wgEnableUploads = true;")[/I]. See [B][URL="http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Configuring_file_uploads"]Manual:Configuring file uploads[/URL][/B] for more information.

From that it looks like only JJay will be able to change the settings for it.

Basically it means JJay has to change the setting from false to true in the LocalSettings file that he will have wherever he is hosting it.

Another good thing with this is we can change the skin from the few that are available to suit our individual tastes rather than one that we all want. :D

I tried out all the other skins. They're just awful.

Yeah most of them are really bad. There are two that ok I think - modern and cologne blue but I think I will stick with the default one after all. :rolleyes: :D

Yeah, the first thing I did was try other skins. The original is easily the best.

What do people think of the Arsenal [and now Chelsea] page? Is it alright? If so I will do more tonight.

Also, are we going to get a proper badge? The FM background looks alright, but I think it would be great if we could make our own badge for it/

Ask Neji if he would maybe come up with something? He is a Photoshop wizard after all

We definately need our own badge. I'm sick of the FM09 one. Hopefully Neji will give us a hand, he is the master after all :cool:

I think it needs to be similar to the Sports Interactive one, could we email SI and ask them for permission to use it on it? Maybe if we put wiki in fancy writing under it, for now.

I'd prefer if we had our own unique badge tbh. But if we can't get one, then I'd have no problem using the SI logo if we had permission.

In that case best to leave it to Neji:D

Again, what do people think of the Arsenal page? I can't seem to link to it, it just comes up with the home page adress. But search for Arsenal and it somes up.

Go into the Premier League clubs page, click Chelsea. It will appear to be the home page's URL, but you'll actually be viewing the Chelsea page. That's what happened for me anyway.

Don't know who SnootyJim is, but he's welcome nonetheless :thup:

I don't think you need to. They are automatically added once they register.

And I found snooty_jim on here. He just posted in the Woman Leagues thread a while ago. Anyway as I said glad you want to contribute as well. :thup:

Just one quick question. How do I insert a table?

{| border="1"

|row1 column3
|-
|row2 column1

|row2 column3
|-
|row3 column1
|row3 column2

You obviously replace the row and column text with what you want in that particular cell.

And you can add in more rows and columns by following the layout. :thup:

Do you want it in a table? You can make a table like I outlined above without the borders if you want.

This [URL="http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Tables"]page[/URL] will be of help to anyone who wants to use tables. :thup:

Made myself an account and made a few changes.

I added some tables on the Club Reputation and CA/PA pages to make them a bit neater.

There's certainly a lot less vitriol here than Wikipedia... I used to make edits there then run and hide behind the sofa ;)

I used to as well but haven't contributed for a long time. There was a lot of debate on Wikipedia. The layout of pages whether they were important to be on it in the first place and other things often caused huge debate. :D

Oh and I said earlier that you have to upload the images to use them. You actually don't. We still can't link them externally yet though as JJay has to enable that as well if we want it.

We're not quite as big as Wikipedia to be honest :D

I've finished Arsenal, Everton, Liverpool, Manchester United(which took A LOT of work) and Wigan.

Seeing as the new Wiki has been made by all of us, should we change the introduction a bit?

At the moment it says
[quote]This Football Manager Wiki has been set up to give fans of the multi-platform management game a chance to learn things about the game, and find out all they need to know to run a succesful team.

The set-up was also largely to do with a request at the SI Forums in a thread by CaptainPlanet. We saw that the majority wanted a wiki page set up and I thought I would take it upon myself to create one.

I hope that the users who decide to create articles here will do so with utmost maturity, and will post only in subjects of which they have knowledge of.

I thought I would keep it short and sweet and let you read on about the more important things: Football Manager. [/quote]

I think the second sentence needs changing a little, to give us all a little credit instead of just peter. Who fully deserves the credit, fwiw, for creating the first one.

I agree, but I think to be honest the whole front page / introduction could probably do with gutting.

Eventually it would be nice to see a structured page with various panels like you would for a typical gamewiki, and all of that type of information from above could be moved into its own 'About Wiki' page or similar.

Hence, maybe it's better to leave it for now, and wait until there's something more substantial in the way of pages whose links can then be used to populate the main page?
