****Yep, this is deliberate in the MediaWiki software because forced line breaks are usually A Bad Thing... for normal paragraph text, anyway.  Where really needed (e.g. to fit text into a table heading or infobox, <code><nowiki><br/></nowiki></code> is fine.  And yes, any space/s at the beginning of a line will make it show as a "code sample" - monospaced, formatting preserved, with border.  Cheers, [[User:Wantok|Wantok]] 00:47, 19 May 2008 (CDT)

P-38L[edit]

You might want to increase the top section's EM to 46 to keep the second line all on one line.

Left justified looked better. :)

I also have this comment in Talk for the page.

  • Thanks, I'll do that. Wantok 11:10, 27 April 2008 (CDT)

P38L widescreen formatting problem[edit]

When the page is loaded on a wide screen monitor, the Historic section blends into the AH2 section. Almost as if there is no hard separtion between the two sections.

If you need a screenshot I can do one tomorrow. I have to go for now.

TicTok Sound and Custom Sound Fix[edit]

  • THANKS for the HELP WanTok, HEY! we have the same last name...LOL
  • It has been about 10 years since I did any markup, had to use what I know...sorry.
  • This is a LOT easier to do, just have to become accustomed to the change. You provided even MORE detail than I had posted, THAT LOOKS GOOD!
  • The main frustration I am dealing with now, is I look in HELP, see what I need HELP with, go to page, and it says "This page does not exist, do you want to create it?" ROFL, THAT would be a disaster!
  • THANKS so much brother WanTok <-better ID for MA's!
  • Be sure to watch what I am doing, I do need supervison and feed-back my friend.
  • One last thing, I am hoping this is how we TALK in WiKi? Let me know please.

Links on USS Tarawa Page[edit]

Do I need to remove LINKS on this page also?

TicTok 08:41, 12 May 2008 (CDT)

USS Tarawa Links removed Sir.

Carriage returns[edit]

Am I doing it wrong, or is there no way around this limitation? Moot 22:14, 18 May 2008 (CDT)

    • Moot, taking a stab in the dark here, since I'm not sure where the trouble is... but the html tag
      <br>
      can be used to force a page to display a carriage return. Wiki will word wrap the display until it comes to a double spaced line (indicating the end of a paragraph) or the above tag

Squadron Page Deletion[edit]

Fencer51 Wantok, do you have page deletion privilages? If so can you remove the 4th FG - The Eagles Wiki page? Thanks.

Fencer51 I did the page while I was a member, due to some differences with leadership I have resigned. I would rather they took the time to do their own page now, rather than rely upon my work.

Pages for gameplay elements such as "vehicle base"[edit]

Is there a plan to have pages for those elements of the game? In writing tactical stuff for GVs, I think it'd be worth it to give readers a separate page about the specifics of each base. Such as layout, distances between important objects, range of ack, etc. Moot 14:46, 1 August 2008 (CDT)

Adding pictures on the side[edit]

How do you add pictures on the side of an article? Moot 16:05, 1 August 2008 (CDT)
