I don't think it's really necessary to say who wrote the article tbh, unless they were taken from someones thread in the GPTG Forum.

Edit my name out if you want from my articles.

I just thought that we had to add that at the end of each article to give credit to the maker.

No, that was only for writers of the GPTG club threads that gave Arsenal_2111 permission to use their club threads for the wiki.

People can see that you wrote the article by looking at the history page :thup:

The Crewe article is in the wrong place, it should be in a League One section and i shall make one. I shall also transfer my Wycombe article over from the old site in approx. 30 mins after my tea.

Ok i'm going to start working on a Stadiums article. I think it is a good idea for any articles people decide to work on to put up a link on the homepage first to show people it's in the process of being done (as i've done with 'Stadiums' or like 'Regen Editing - How to add your own regen - Coming Soon' for example). That way people don't have to search through this thread just to check what is under construction.

Good idea, I think we should stick to this :thup:

Has anyone figured out how to upload images? I can't for the life of me figure out how to do it :(

Should see an "upload file" link bottom left :)

Then to include it in a page you type [[image:xxx.jpg]]

Ahmufcwafc, go to special pages, and there should be an upload file link in there. :thup:

Also regarding some discussion further yup to rename a page all you do is move the page.

Thanks again JJay. :thup:

Also glad to see more people getting involved.

So I've run into another problem. I don't think this is the look we're going for. Any idea how to change the alignment of the image?

Looks much better if you ask me :thup:

But why does it say we only have 15 English articles?

Lay it out in a table as it looks neater, but with no lines. But if the lines have to be included, make them an attractive colour. Don't change it unless other people want it though

[[File:Example.jpg|none|caption]]
Change none to whatever alignment you want i.e. right, left or center.

If you want to put in a caption put it in as above.

Also you can specify a border, size and vertical alignment if you want.

I think it does not consider stubs as articles. They need to be of a certain length to be articles I think.

Yeah you can make a table without borders with this.

What links do people want in the banner?

Also would working with categories be easier especially as we add more articles.

They allow you to just specify a pages categories at the end of the article and they are automatically added to that category.

I would like two team links in there if possible. The Lyon one is one of the better ones imo, as is either the Arsenal or Man Utd one. Would like two of them in if possible.

Also, here is the list of teams I have done. It's getting there!;

I will link it for you if you have posted it.

You go to the page you want to link it from and do a thing like this:

[[Lyon]]

I tried to figure this out earlier. Don't have a clue, it's all so complicated.
Guys, how do you do redirections? I've made Olympique Lyonnais' page, but want to make it so 'Lyon' redirects there. Any idea how?

For future reference, it is

#REDIRECT [[pagename]]

I've done the Lyon page for you as an example :)

Do we need to have any links on the banner? Personally i don't think links are needed at the minute as they're easily accessible at the moment and it would look a bit neater without them.

Who's Josh9393 - good article on board takeovers btw:thup:

I think if you have enough information to make it two good sized articles then they should be split otherwise keep them as one.

About the links in the banner, how would everyone feel if I created categories based on the current articles section on the home page?

I could then place links to the categories in the banner.

[[Category:Editing]] - If you put that at the end of your article it would add it to the Editing Category for example.

If I could make a request please. Would one or a couple of you knowledgeable people perhaps consider putting together a little strategy on the best formations and tactics to use or what works well for you? Its so that those of us (such as me for example) who aren't too experienced at the game, can have a basic understanding and start to maybe be a little more successful, as I for one keep losing matches and it is really frustrating for me and im sure it is for a handful of others as well.

Many Thanks

I think that we should have a seperate page for them.

Shall I write a team guide for Redditch in the BSN?

I will be able to do it because I am maaging them and am in my third season so I have plenty of good advise for them.

Just a question, has anyone got a premium rapidshare account?

I can do something about that. It will be at its best though once I have finished my 'Ultimate Tactic' thread.

Although, I say that I am quite good with tactics, normally.

This one is mine :D

I think that it is an excellent idea so that we don't have people doing the same article twice.

Can I ask who is making a Shakther page? There is already one here, so if you like I can contact coolbananas and as for permission to use that. Should save you some time.

Ah, I see it is Rob. Well, if you want to make one that's fine. But this could save you some time.

footballmanagerwiki.net now redirects to the wiki as well :thup:

I've had it sitting doing nothing for ages :D

EDIT: Can it be sorted that the .co.uk is also set to a redirect or that the wiki moves to the .co.uk as it's a) annoying having it framed and b) confusing and/or annoying for some that want to copy and paste links

That's brilliant mate, great to hear that the site is developing. Thanks for that:thup:

I've only got three of the team's to do, Torquay, Zenit and Wolfsburg. So I am going to PM the rest of the thread makers to ask.
