Template:Newulist

From Runes of Magic Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This is intended to replace Template:Ulistproc, and maybe all the others. Depends just how far I can push the new tools I have learned.

Documentation for the Loops extension can be found at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Loops.

The difference between this and my original listproc templates is that this approach has no limit to the length of the lists.


This is my attempt to duplicate a function, in wikicode, that I miss very much from ZAM, where we had a wiki function called #commalist that would take multiple lists and process them against a mask to create displays.

The basic idea is to have a group of comma-delimited lists, each of which defines a part of what I need. Note: MediaWiki does not allow recursion.

Usage

{{newulist
|pre=
|linker=
|list1=
|list3=
|list4=
|list5=
|notes=
|mobtypes=
|type=
|noprefix=
|usebr=
|px=
|ol=
|}}

pre=

Display this before each call to the linker. Added specifically for Template:BWItem to display "Quest " to the left of each quest name this item is needed for.

list1= to list5=

With the above fields, we are going to extract the first value from each and use it to build a call to [[Template: {{{linker|}}}]] while building an Unordered List. list1 controls the output. if list1 has fewer elements than the others, it will stop when it runs out of list1. If list1 has more, it will treat the short lists as blanks. list2 is ONLY needed if you need to be able to use alternate names for values in list1. If list1 contains a blank element processing will stop there.

notes=

if the value is not blank it is placed to the right of the linker call, inside parentheses, as a note

mobtypes=

This is only needed IF linker=moblink. This allows you to tell if each mob in the list is a Monster, NPC, Passive or Ambience.

type=

If you are using this for zonelink or poilink calls on a Quest, Object or Mob page, you use this to tell the linker to add the ...by Zone or ...by POI category. Generally, suers do not need to worry about this, as the Quest, Object or Mob template will set the type= when it calls Ulistproc.

noprefix=

Currently, this only applies if linker=questlink.

usebr=

If NOT blank, make this a vertical list using <br /> instead of <ul>. Default is to make this an Unordered List.
px=
Used only by classlink to set the class icon size
ol
(switch) use Ordered List instead of the default of Unordered List. Ordered List means the list is numbered instead of using bullets.
