  • Hello!

    I'm Rain and I'm part of Wikia's Vanguard team. We're users who volunteer to help communities adopt to new technologies and features, like content portability. You requested help on the Portability Hub and that's why I'm here! I'll keep it simple. I'd like to reproduce as much as possible the look and feel of your desktop infoboxes in global CSS, and work to update the Infobox templates themselves so that they can be accessible on any current and future platform. Maintaining them if you want to make changes should be very simple.

    I saw that you use two different infoboxes. Maybe we could create one design for all infoboxes and we update them together? I'd really like to get working on your community, but we need your go-ahead. Also, if you have any questions, or this is the wrong venue for this kind of a discussion, please let me know.

    Thanks! --FANMADE_Rainbow_Dash_Flying.gifRaintalk 21:21, April 19, 2016 (UTC)

    • Hello.  No this is fine.  And yes, I am interested in keeping abreast of all the new technology; however, I do prefer the Classic Editor and look.  I want to be sure I'll be able to edit the new style of infoboxes as easily as I do now.  I'm sure it's an unjustified worry but want to be sure that if the decision is to return to the "old" style, I will be able to do that.  Let's talk.  Angelle aka Luxartisan (talk) 21:26, April 20, 2016 (UTC)

    • Hi,

      the new infoboxes choose colors which fits for the design of the wiki. That means you don't have to change colors, they do that for you. But if you want to change the infoboxes, you can do that with CSS. If you want, I can style the infoboxes with CSS for you (if you don't like the standard design). Do you have any questions about that?

      Let's open another topic. Where should I start? I saw you have two different designs and I think one would be easier to maintain. Do you prefer a design or should I use the standard design and we change it then from there?

      Let me know what you think!

      Kind regards, FANMADE_Rainbow_Dash_Flying.gifRaintalk

    • Do you have any galleries on the wiki and what do you think about this design?

    • Galleries?  Just about every character has one and every anime episode.

      The design you suggest is too boxy.  I like the ones already in place so that's the style we'll keep.

      What do you think about this?

    • Better, except the black outline should encase the entire infobox.  If that can be done, I'm okay with that design.  Angelle aka Luxartisan (talk) 15:06, April 23, 2016 (UTC)

    • Okay, should be okay now.

    • If you are okay with the design, I'll convert all infoboxes. If you aren't okay with the header, I'll change the header back.

    • Looks ok to me.  Is editing the new format as simple as editing the original format?  If it's different, please explain how to edit.  Thanks.  Angelle aka Luxartisan (talk) 21:24, April 23, 2016 (UTC)

    • Editing the parameters on a page should be the same.

      Eiditing the infobox itself should be easier.
