Adding new feature quotes

Hi Kylevincent,

Create new quote

First create a new page for your quote. The page MUST have as title "Feature quote/numberx". Where "numberx" must be subsituted by the next available number. At this moment we have 110 different quotes. The new page should thus be Feature quote/111. Click the link to go to that page. Add your quote and save the page.

Change the total number

Now you have created a new quote. However I think your idea is to display it on the Main Page. You do not have to change anything on that page. The Main Page calls the Feature quote page and this page gets the quotes. So it means that we have change this Feature quote page. I won't go into technical detail about how it exactly works. It will suffice to say that the Feature quote page selects a quote from total number of quotes of which it is aware. Thus we have to change the total number. You have just added Feature quote/111 so the total number is now 111. Go to the Feature quote page and change the number 110 to 111. The number can be found almost at the bottom of the page, just above the section "Working of template" (you have to edit the page to see it). There are 3 instances where 110 is noted. They all begin with {{Feature quote|total quotes=110. Change all of them.

Document your change

If you have saved the page the new quote will be displayed in due time. Technically we are complete, however nobody can see that you have added the quotes. And we want to be able to see all quotes on the Feature quote page. This will help us add new quotes or change them. So what you have to do is add the following text: |- |[[Feature quote/111Hundred & eleventh]] || {{:Feature quote/111}} |- style="background-color: #F3F3F3;"

Please add the text above just below the similar text but where it contained 110 instead of 111. The section is just above where you have changed the total number.

Well that was about it. Let me know if you need more info. Cheers,Scafloc 18:53, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
