Some tips for editing

  • If you don't see an "edit" button, you have to REGISTER. (Click "Sign In" on top right, or follow this link)
  • Please refer to the Wiki License Agreement for wiki license.
  • If you are using adblock, or script blockers, the editor may not load or your edits may not save. We can't fix this because adblock alters how the page loads. If you'd like no ads but full features, we have a vip subscription that removes all adverts without need for external blockers. Disabling adblock on the wiki to edit requires that you do a full cookie+cache clear and include tinymce in your non-blocked resources.
  • If you find bad information, do not "strike through". Simply delete it and replace with proper information
  • All information should be added in third person, the wiki's "voice" should be neutral, not "I".
    Instead of "I recommend" use "It is recommended".
    Instead of "I found that" use "Testing shows that".
  • Respect formatting relative to other pages. The wikis have templates that have been made to make editing easy.
  • Shortcuts are now enabled. If you highlight text, you can use
    Ctrl+e = link (to word linked)
    ctrl+b = bold
    ctrl+i = italics
    ctrl+u = underline
    alt+shift+(number) = Heading (number)

  8. Leave TITLE blank. Choose "none" for a TARGET.
  9. Hit ACCEPT when you are done.
  10. You will see your text underlined, indicating it is now linked.


Creating Pretty Headings

Fextralife wikis have CSS classes for customizing headings. They look different on every wiki, but they provide a visual upgrade to plain headings and make delineating sections simple.


To add these headings, put your cursor on your intended heading. Then go to "Format" while editing, and select Formats > Headings > Heading (x) Titlearea / Bonfire / Special



Adding Columns, Infoboxes, Formatting

Complex formatting may be difficult to manage from the visual editor, and it is often best to use the provided TEMPLATES or start your page from another similar page. If you need to add complext formating to your unusual page, you will need to:

  1. Find a page that already has columns or the complex formatting you want,
  2. Copy it
  3. Before pasting it on the destination page go to Edit > Paste as text and untick it. This will allow you to paste formatting which includes the complex HTML code needed for columns.
  4. The black lines that you see within the columns are the dividers for each row/column. Be careful not to backspace and delete them!
  5. Also it's best to press shift+enter when editing within a column to avoid breaking the formatting.


Inserting Tables & Sortable Tables

  1. Hit the button on the top-right corner of the screen. This will bring you to the visual editor.
  2. Move the cursor to where you want to insert you want to insert the table.
  3. Hit the button and select INSERT TABLE.
  4. Choose the number of rows and columns you need. Simply left-click to confirm your selection.
  5. Click on a table, then click the button and select Table Properties > Class > Sortable to make the table sortable.


Button Layout

See the number on the image and the corresponding explanation below.

  1. : Save the changes made to the page.
  2. : Leave the editor WITHOUT saving any changes made.
  3. : Preview the changes made to the page. If you are not satisfied with your changes, you can return to the editor by hitting.


Adding a Tag Cloud

  1. Click the "Insert Tag Cloud" button on the editor
  2. Click the big square that appears, then the small "Edit Page Tags" button and type the tag you want. An automated list will show up of existing tags that match your search. Hit enter and save
  3. All done! now whatever pages are tagged like that will show here.


Tagging a page (so it shows up in tag clouds)

  1. Only Organizers can tag pages. You must be logged in.
  2. Go to the ... menu on the page you want to tag, and select tags
  3. Type the tag you want. An automated list will show up of existing tags that match your search. Hit enter and it's saved.



  1. Only Organizers can breadcrumb pages. Log into your account
  2. Find the "+" button under the page name
  3. On the menu that appears, on the "Inherit" column, find the page you want to link to.
  4. Always create breadcrumbs from the main pages first. So if you want to breadcrumb the page "Dagger": go to "Weapons" and mark them as "Equipment". Then to "Daggers" and mark them as "Weapons". Finally to "Dagger" to mark as "Daggers" The result is:
    Equipment/Weapons/Daggers as a breadcrumb

      Is there a way to get the wiki to remember my choices on cookies so that I don't have to reject them EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I. LOAD. A .PAGE?

      • I'm not sure what's going on with the discussion sections on this wiki. For some reason my posts in them will come up saying that my comment could not be posted around 80% of the time. I've tried refreshing, using a different device, connecting to a different network, and creating an account; all met with the same fate. Sometimes waiting a couple minutes and trying again will finally get it through, but most of the time it just doesn't work. Either that, or it's taking so long to get through that I lose patience trying to resubmit until it decides I can finally have my comment posted.

        • See, when I leave a comment, it still turns up as Anonymous even after creating an account, activating it and adding an avi. How do I alter this?

          • Anonymous

            How about how to format comments? I cant even get line breaks to work on this pos. mobile commenting is terrible as well, this platform is damn average.

              I think you should add a terminology page, or at least when used in a guide say what certain things like AR mean

                When commenting how do you move your text to a new line? I hit enter and it appears like my text moves to a new line (new paragraph), but when I submit it is all just one block of text.

                • How do we turn off the visual editor? It's a buggy unusable lag-filled mess and I much prefer to edit plain wikitext, yet when I search this page for it all I can find is repeated text touting this garbage fire as though anyone would willingly choose it if it weren't (bafflingly) the default.

                  Protip: If someone comes to the help page and knows enough to search it for "visual editor", that means they want to *turn it off*. That ought to be the first result! People who know what the term "visual editor" means are going to be people who don't want to use it!

                    • How do you create "dynamic" tables that are present on weapon pages with stats for each upgrade level? I can't for the life of me figure out how to add a button that will switch the currently shown table.

                        I finished Cadwell's Silver. It says go back to the Harborage. It has turned black on the icon and the door is locked. I don't know where to go to finish and get the reward.

                          Came here thinking it was about editing character saves for people looking to trade items from high level character to an alt. There are guides how to trade when having a friend only but can’t seem to find anyone who knows how to do this by their self, which is weird. There should be a way to do it without requesting someone’s help.

                          • For anyone having trouble with comment replies: Apparently the "Grammarly" plugin and other spellcheckers are behind the commenting bug. You can disable them to comment normally.

                            • I cant seem to be able to reply to comments, only submit new threads, I get a message saying that comment cannot be empty even if there is text on it. Any way to fix this?

                                Unable to use the search bar. Anything I type in and go to comes to a "blank" page. Only the site backgrounds and tools with the words "search results" but no actual results.
                                This is happening on both my PC and phone. Any fixes?

                                • If you see adverts over content please clear your browser cache. Your device has an old css file that causes that issue.

                                  If you are experiencing bad ads, you should report them. You can contact us with further details, such as your location, browser, and screenshots of what pages this problem happened on: make a post here:

                                    Your site is awful on mobile, redirecting to horrible "congratulations, you won" advertisements. It makes the site impossible to use and everyone knows that whenever you see those ads, you actually just lose :(

                                      • Can an Admin/Prominent User add Terminology Guidelines? I'm trying hard to clean up some ambiguous wording and phrasing but it's difficult because i keep seeing "Transformed" and "Tricked" used interchangeably, as well as a lot of "shoot" in places where "fire" sounds better. There's also a bunch of "shot", "projectile", and "bullet" were "Quicksilver Bullet" is the proper term. Help?

                                        • .... I done goofed. I went and created a page:'s+Majestic+Curved+Nil+and+Bone+Fists+of+Judgment with an entirely clean slate when I should've gone for the my much older "" Template since I do not know how to create this template from scratch. Is there someway to access this template via editing or is there a way to delete the post altogether?

                                              • please if it's possible, add an option to edit the pages as raw HTML (if they are HTML). it's incredible how difficult it is to just add a column to a table and separate the header from the previous existing header without destroying the latter.

                                                • -All information should be added in third person, the wiki's "voice" should be neutral, not "I".-Instead of "I recommend" use "It is recommended". -Instead of "I found that" use "Testing shows that".Many people need to read this.

                                                      • Feels difficult to do work on a wiki with seemingly limited options. There's no explanation anywhere for why I see no options to rename, redirect, or delete pages.There's a "Saint's Chime" page and a "Saint's Talisman" page. The "chime" version doesn't exist, which is causing misleading information about crow trading "any chime." The item doesn't work, as it's not a chime. It's a talisman.Don't appear to be able to do anything about it, though, as the buttons described in other fextra wiki tutorials for renaming/redirecting aren't here.
