You know Talkerst, you'd be more likely to get answers to questions about the wiki if you ask them on the wiki....
Thanks for the info. How do I ask a general question on the wiki? I know how to ask an individual or talk about a page, but I haven't seen a general area. Or do I just add it to my talk page and others will find it somehow?
I have another question, with a possible follow up depending on the answer.
*When a template is interpreted (transclusion occurs?) is that done at the server or the client level? I.E. I have a page that is built using a template and that template pulls from two other templates. Does the client download all 4 files and then put them together or does the server build the page and then just send the final result to the client?
Thanks for the quick responses, much appreciated. I think I'm going to turn the spell id switch (from D3 Skills) into it's own template so that the functionality is preserved but it can be used in other templates or multiple times in D3 Skills.
1. You can also do it with the help of Extension:Variables, which is installed in the wiki. It allows you to create a variable on a page that can be used on other places on the same page. I don't know how transclusions would affect these variables, but you could mess around with it in your sandbox and see how it works.
Just tried out the variable extension and it rocks.
As I've been working on the wiki I've come up with a slowly growing list of questions. I figured I'd throw them out and see if anyone has an answer.
Is there a way to create local variables?
Is it better to repeat large blocks (for instance the class id switch statement) multiple times on a page or to create a template that acts like a function and can be used multiple times in the same page?
Does the wiki or DiabloFans have any stock images for arrows? Such as fancy up, down, left or right arrows.
