Portal talk:Battlestar Galactica (RDM)/Episode Guide - Season 1 Guide

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

Guidelines

Since most seasons "Headers" are done, you will be working on the Episode's themselfs. I made it so it's really easy to add new ones without copying and pasting. Also this way it will be standerized.

All you do is keep reapting that same code until everything is done. Even though this is used mostly on the Episode Guide's this format can be followed anywhere expect on the Featured Episode. Any questions you can post them here. --Shane 16:52, 17 March 2006 (CST)

Although I think this is pretty good Shane, A) How do we make it visible? and B) it's not what Memory Alpha does. I don't know--->I was sick last week and am unsure how this portal thing began; can someone please summarize for me the plans for this/goals?--The Merovingian 23:10, 17 March 2006 (CST)

Sure. Here is the information surounding the "Portals". Also this can be accessed two different ways. A) New Main Page Design, B) Battlestar Galactica (RDM), and C) RDM Portal. --Shane (C - E) 23:17, 17 March 2006 (CST)
A)I do not understand how to make portal template like this B) it would not be fitting for me to try to edit it, when you are half finished with it! :) therefore, I think I'm going to wait to see what develops here when you are finished; Please, Shane, announce when you are "done" and we can start modifiying the information inside of the portal framework you've played around with. It may prove to be unwiedly and have to be removed, or we may decide to keep it. I don't know. Personally I'm unsure of new things, but as I've said before we REALLY need to fix main page navigation; we never have featured articles like Memory Alpha does. Still, I'd have gone with just copying Memory Alpha's framework. Regardless, I'll wait until you announce it is "done"----->BTW, please try to include the information from the episode writer/director category links we made through every episode (they're at the bottom of episode pages), as those links worked pretty well. --The Merovingian 23:22, 17 March 2006 (CST)
Alot of the IMDB links are wrong. When you do excat match you might get an Excat Match, but not of a person who accually done a BSG show. Once I get into the "Stars" Section alot more of the links work. I been working on Crew first because those were the easist, but I gotta go throguh each Episode now and inter-wiki them to their own pages now instead of just IMDB. --Shane (C - E) 23:27, 17 March 2006 (CST)

Note to Self

Make each season a sub-page. Otherwise we get overflow errors. Thanks Shane. --Shane (C - E) 12:27, 19 March 2006 (CST) (Mind)

Bad Webisode Link

What should the link be? --FrankieG 16:46, 8 September 2006 (CDT)

Just to "bump" this up again. --FrankieG 17:40, 10 November 2006 (CST)
Lazy getting around to the creation. --Shane (T - C - E) 17:42, 10 November 2006 (CST)
