What is Library Data?
Compilations of information commonly obtainable from ships’ computers or other sources. The information here may be of great help to travellers looking for guidance in the Spinward Marches.
How does it work?
To see how these work, click on the ‘Edit’ button at the bottom and just start playing around. Don’t worry, you won’t break anything.
How do I create a new entry?
To create a new page, just make a name and surround it with double square brackets like so: A New Page. When you save the page, the link will show up and you can click on it to create the new page.
How do I link to existing entries?
To link to existing entries, use the same double square brackets. For example, here’s a link to this page: Main Page
How do I link to an entry with different text?
If you don’t want to use the page’s name as the link text, you can specify your own text by placing a vertical bar | and the link text in the link like so: Linking with different text
How do I link to a biographical entry?
For people, the easiest thing is to use the PC/NPC Link Lookup in the sidebar to the right. It’s quite handy! Otherwise, the links behave much like a regular link, just with a colon at the start.
Are there other ways to modify an entry?
To style things how you want, you can use either an archaic computer language called HTML (with some restrictions — this is available for backwards compatibility with ancient Terran/Sylean computer systems) or a more modern formatting language called Textile. It’s up to you, but Textile is pretty easy, while simultaneously allowing for lots of customization.
