Persona Page Walkthrough

This is a walkthrough for creating a persona page for the fictional person Lord Richard Lionheart. You may follow these steps to create your own persona page (substituting your name for his).

Please Note: Due to increased spam, new users must request an account before they can edit or add pages. If you do not yet have an account, you must do that first.

Step 1: Create your Page

Enter your name in the box below and click 'create'.

You are not allowed to add pages

Step 2: Edit your Page

A persona page with a default template will be created. This template is meant to assist in creating your persona page. You are not required to use it, and can edit your page as you see fit.

See syntax for Wiki syntax.

Step 3: Add Tags to add the User to 'People' Lists

Richard is a 12th century English Crusader. He is also a resident of the Canton of Eoforwic in the Barony of Septentria.

He adds the following tags to the bottom of his page:

{{tag>people:personas_by_century:12th_century people:personas_by_culture:english people:personas_by_culture:crusader 
people:people_by_location:eoforwic people:people_by_location:septentria}}

This will add his name to these auto-generated lists.

Step 4: Upload desired images

Click 'Save' to save the page.

In the top right hand corner (under the Search box), select 'Media Manager'. Select the upload tab and upload your files. Do not upload copyrighted images without the owner's permission.

Select the upload tab, then select the files to upload and click upload

Step 5: Get the filename

Clicking on the uploaded file will being up the file info. The title of the file (including namespace) is required to link the image to your persona page.

Step 6: Replace the Populace Badge

Replace the default template image with your custom image. For example, we changed:

[{{media:heraldry:branch_heraldry:wolfium.jpg|You can use the populace badge if you do not have heraldry.}}]

with

[{{people:richard_lionheart.jpg?250px|//Lion rampant contourné.//}}]
