This document is intended to be a Quick Tutorial. Please amend this description to reflect purpose of this document.


Sample Code[edit | edit source]

See the following example, taken from Stadium/Flame Cup lv 1 (2013 Aug 27):

'''Strategy:''' Gummy with {{i|Electric|size=25px}} [[Tesla Ray]] trained will end this one quick. Still very low level so brute force is still an option if you have lack of [[:Category:Electric Dragons|Electric Dragons]]. 

Alternate: {{i|Link|Mud Dragon}} or {{i|Link|Waterfall Dragon}} with {{i|Sea|size=25px}} attack will also do a great amount of damage to both dragons. You can also add {{i|Sea|size=25px}} as a backup firepower to you team (but not the 1st place).

'''Recommended Min Team:'''
*{{i|Link|Mud Dragon}} lv 4

'''''or'''''

*{{i|Link|Waterfall Dragon}} lv 4

We will be referring to this code segment in this document.


Note on Code Segment[edit | edit source]

This guide was originally written for mid-level players who have a range of dragons to choose from. The Alternate was written for low-level players, who are just starting out.


Preface[edit | edit source]

Most of the codes are of a basic format. Either double "{" and closed with double "}" (curly brackets) or double "[" closed with double "]" (square brackets) or single straight quotes " ' ".


Basic Formatting Codes[edit | edit source]

Basic formatting codes are simple instructions that tell the wiki you want more than plain text in a single paragraph. =D


Paragraphs[edit | edit source]

The extra line between paragraphs creates a new paragraph. If the line is removed, the two paragraphs will join. Two empty lines between paragraphs increases the space between paragraphs.

A colon ":" means indent, like so:

Indent / block paragraph.


Lists[edit | edit source]

The asterisk "*" at the beginning of a line (no space in front) means the wiki should insert a bullet like this:

  • bullet


A "#" (hash/pound) sign means a numbered list, like so:

# Item 1
# Item 2
  1. Item 1
  2. Item 2


You can combine paragraph code and list code thus:

::* Sub level
:::# Item 1, Sub 1
  • Sub level
  1. Item 1, Sub 1

Inserting a space before the start of your text is recommended and improves readability in the source code.

Italics & Boldface[edit | edit source]

''italics''

gives italics.


'''bold'''

gives bold.


'''''bold and italicized'''''

gives bold and italicized.

Heading[edit | edit source]

Normal text

==Heading 2==

===Heading 3===

====Heading 4====

=====Heading 5=====

 preformatted 


Including Templates[edit | edit source]

Templates are documents written by (advanced) coders to allow DCW to have a consistent look throughout. The curly brackets really mean "insert this document here, with the following conditions." xD


Template i[edit | edit source]

{{i|Electric|size=25px}}

gives Electric. i is the name of the "template" that generates an icon; Electric is the name of the Element to show, "px" means "pixels". Please look "pixels" up in Google if you want to know.

The template i also has a second function:

{{i|Link|Mud Dragon}}

gives TerraSea Mud, which is useful when we want to show the elements of a Dragon in breeding or battle discussions.


Internal Links[edit | edit source]

[[Tesla Ray]]

gives Tesla Ray. The square brackets mean you are trying to link to a page on DCW. "Tesla Ray" is the name of the page.

Note: If it didn't work as you expected, check your spelling and the capitalization. :)


These are the basics. As you edit other work, you will learn more from other people's "codes".


Tables[edit | edit source]

Sometimes we use Tables to organize and summarize data, particularly when there is large amounts of it -- e.g., for Battle Maps.

Code segment for Tables follow:


 {| class="wikitable"
 |-
 ! Header 1
 ! Header 2
 ! Header 3
 |-
 | row 1, cell 1
 | row 1, cell 2
 | row 1, cell 3
 |-
 | row 2, cell 1
 | row 2, cell 2
 | row 2, cell 3
 |}

The preceding code produces:

Header 1 Header 2 Header 3
row 1, cell 1 row 1, cell 2 row 1, cell 3
row 2, cell 1 row 2, cell 2 row 2, cell 3


Code Definitions[edit | edit source]

{| and |} start and end tables respectively.

|- marks the beginning of a new row (a set of cells arranged in a horizontal manner.)

! marks the beginning of a new header cell (for titles - please do not use this as a lazy way to bold the contents of a cell)... Header cells may be assigned special functions, e.g., for sorting.

| at the beginning of a line is used to mark the beginning of a new cell. When this symbol is used elsewhere, it may be used to separate the cell formatting from its contents. E.g.,

| align="center" | centered contents
