Is the CSS template for this page (Codex) standard? I can't seem to get my world to match the look of this.

23 Aug, 2019 17:03

Looks to be all standard to me.

25 Aug, 2019 11:09

The Codex uses standard CSS (except for a few things here and there, such as the yellow "this feature is guild only" boxes). What are you having trouble with, exactly?

How do I get access to Fool Footer? I can't seem to find it in any of the article templates.

2 Sep, 2019 21:57

It's under the sections tab about halfway down the page, right above the authors notes and credits!

In an article, what is visible to players as opposed to the GM? I'd like to share information on things without revealing my whole hand, and I know I can use subscribers, but is there anything that by default is GM only, or can the players see anything I can see that is published and public?

20 Dec, 2019 21:38

The "NOTES FOR STORYTELLERS AND GMS" under your Vignette is only visible to you unless you check the box at the bottom right of it.   If you wish to reveal it later, I suggest using secrets and embedding them into the article to later activate with subscriber groups.

Is it possible to change the type of the article once you have already selected it? Eg. Change 'Location' to 'Building' ?

27 Dec, 2019 01:53

It is not, sorry!

Is there a way to alter the appearance and content of the Default Panel that appears above the sidebar? For example, on an NPC article , it lists a brief description, as section titled "DM-Only Information", secrets, State, Type, etc. Alternatively, is it possible to hide this default panel?

28 Apr, 2020 23:35

With settings, no. That will fill out automatically based on any info you've filled in. If it's that much of a hassle, you can either take on making a custom Character template derived from the current one, or quick-hide it with CSS.   I'd have a hard time providing samples on here, but if you have questions after reading the guides to Blocks and CSS, let me know or, even better, join the discord and sync your roles to get help from the overall community!

Thanks for the quick response. I found how to easily hide the panel using the theme CSS.

Is there a way to copy this template for use in my own world?

15 May, 2020 18:34

There is not, sorry!

Oh, okay. Thanks! It's really useful regardless.

There was a popup that said if you're a guild member and you leave the sidebar content empty, that it becomes a full page. I am a Journeyman, and I have left the sidebar sections empty, yet when I preview it, the sidebar is still there. What am I doing wrong?

That only applies to generic articles, I believe.

OH, that makes a lot of sense. Thank you!

hello :) i cant see any preview of my own articles, but for example this one here is working for me. what am i doing wrong?

7 Jul, 2020 19:34

What happens when you try to see the preview?

with my articles - when i hover over them - nothing happens, i have to click on them. with this one in the example (and lots of the published community ones) i can hover over them and i see the preview as intended

Under your World Settings > Display > Global World Display Options, make sure that DISPLAY ARTICLE TOOLTIPS is checked. Then on your articles make sure that your Display -> Mouseover Box and Excerpts have text in them.

Thank you! I didnt checked the options.

I inserted a table (in the Sidebar Content Panel) and can't figure out how to delete it. I've tried highlighting it and using the Delete key, placing the cursor after it and using the backspace arrow key, and placing the cursor before it and using the Delete key. Nothing works, and I can't get rid of it. :( Please help!

31 Jul, 2020 03:07

Go here and swap your editor to a different option and try again. Let me know if that works.

My "Editor Selection" was set to Plato. After switching it to Euclid, I was able to delete the table. (Thank you!) I then switched back to Plato, inserted a table (just as a test), and again I was unable to delete it.   Is this a bug (that will be fixed), or is the Plato option just not designed to handle tables (and other elements?) and I need to switch to a different editor permanently?

31 Jul, 2020 05:13

This is a bug for sure. I don't know if anyone has reported it, but I'll poke the Plato dev and let him know!

I have big trouble making any sense of how to edit the sidebars. Please explain how to make the sidebar content panel look like the one in the example above. Thanks!

How do you add multiple headings to an article e.g. to separate a character's early life, later life, etc.

29 Sep, 2020 22:03

By adding your own headers. For example, if you put [h1]Header Name[/h1] it'll add a header to a field. Experiment by putting these in the vignette or other fields.
