2004-07-02 [Kaimee]: onto your house, or onto the wiki? to put images on anywhere in elftown, you first upload it in your house, you get the url of the picture (right-click over picture>properties>highlight url> right-click>copy) then you go to where you want to put in, in the same way you would normall input text ('edit' a wiki, or 'change personal data' for your house) then you type <IMG:url in this space>, replacing the 'url in this space' with the actual url (right-click>paste)

2004-07-02 [Kaimee]: so to make that simpler, you put <IMG:url in this space> wherever you want the picture to show up.

2004-07-13 [BlueShoes]: I want to create my own wikki page. But I don't want to goof up anyone elses.

2004-07-13 [True, plain and simple]: Just enter a name in the "Go to wiki page:" box over there and hit enter. If it says the page doesn't exist, you can edit that and you won't be messing up anyone else's. :)

2004-07-18 [saibrah_89]: how in the world do u look at pictures?

2004-07-18 [irulan]: Which pictures?

2004-08-07 [Dinuriel]: How do I edit my house page?

2004-08-07 [Athene Noctua]: On the top right hand corner of your screen, there is a button that says "Change personal data." Click on it. :)

2004-08-12 [Oskanosai]: Hi, errmm I'm not sure if I did something wrong when I signed up for elf-town but when I look at my wyverns Library page I don't see my world map location,photo etc.Did I do Something wrong?

2004-08-12 [Ocean Dreaming]: Elftown and Elfwood are two different things all together. Picking a location on the Elftown world map doesn't automatically create a position on the Elfwood world map. Go to the Extranet - Tools and Utilities. You'll find what you want/need there. ^-^

2004-08-28 [MarkKB]: How do I create a wiki

2004-08-28 [Ocean Dreaming]: Have you read CNETG9 and the other wiki help pages already?

2004-09-18 [Raven_master]: im confused...

2004-09-19 [irulan]: What are you confused about?

2004-09-20 [Athene Noctua]: Ummm, yeah. Just pick the section that has what you are confused about, and read it. :)

2004-09-22 [Imraith-Nymphial]: I am having trouble getting text to center on my page. I have the tags in place on a poem but only the first 2 lines do it, the rest stay on the left of the page

2004-09-22 [True, plain and simple]: You're missing a </center> tag after the poem, I think. (If you're talking about your house, that is)

2004-09-22 [Imraith-Nymphial]: tried everything and it just wont work!! agghhh

2004-09-22 [True, plain and simple]: I'll look at it later and see if I can fix it for you.

2004-09-22 [Imraith-Nymphial]: oh thankz a lot. The colours keep going sqiffy too. You would never believe I have a degree in computing would you!!

2004-09-22 [Imraith-Nymphial]: I might be able to suss it out if there was a bigger text box to work in. like say dreamweaver.
