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.

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.

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?

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?

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.
