I noticed you are having problems with your formatting and am here to help! Cole is here to help!


You need to work on your formatting... *[[/dev/blah_blah]] ( blah bah ) is not acceptable... Use *[[/dev/blah_blah|blah_blah]] ... --Balloonhead66 19:32, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

When I made that page i was in a hurry and can we sort the invisible text ( some of it Should be notes ) --liamchat 22:30, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
The question is not appropriate here. Please ask it on the Talk page for /dev: Talk:/dev --Balloonhead66 18:45, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
This may not be the place, but if you work on your formatting skills, I could make you an admin on my wiki: Wiki --Balloonhead66 18:50, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
what is the difference between user and admin editing wise --liamchat 19:06, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
Alot of the pages are going to be protected (but not all) and an admin on my wiki will allow you to edit even the protected pages, block spammers, delete pages, delete images, move images, delete images and more --Balloonhead66 00:26, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia Links

Did you know theres this great feature called the wikipedia namespace? It is used by [[wikipedia:Apple Inc.|Apple Inc.]] ... That link would take you to Apple Inc. on wikipedia... Like this: Apple Inc. --Balloonhead66 19:32, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

External Links with bar

Do not use [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Inc.| Apple Inc.] ... That does not work... and will produce Apple Inc., but will link to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Inc.| ... Pllease, please, I say it one more time, PLEASE use the wikipedia namespace! --Balloonhead66 19:32, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Changing Display Title

OK, so seeing what is above, use {{DISPLAYTITLE:/dev/blah_blah}} if there were a file called blah_blah is the /dev folder. Normally, [[/dev/blah_blah|blah_blah]] would display as /dev/blah blah in the title, but we want /dev/blah_blah . So we use the DISPLAYTITLE key. It will only allow changing spaces to underscores, lowercase to uppercase, and uppercase to lowercase. Hope this helped! --Balloonhead66 19:37, 25 October 2010 (UTC)


Spaces in title

Do not put spaces in headings like == About Me == . Instead use ==About Me== ... --Balloonhead66 19:42, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Ok when I click the button on the toolbar it creates a == Headline text == not the =Headline text== that you think is correct --liamchat 23:12, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
Please just type it yourself then, it saves db space... --Balloonhead66 23:14, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
the real way to save space is to delete the images in Special:Unusedimages and we only need to wurry about database size if we are updating the Special:Version of the wiki --liamchat 23:21, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
Deleting the images or removing the spaces doesn't save any database space, because the full history is stored (even for deleted pages or images). But I agree that unnecessary and/or unused stuff should get removed to have the latest version contain the correct data. For the spaces I think we can allow both, but better not mix it. --http 17:09, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
The entire page modification is not saved, only the change, hence to bold red when comparing 2 revisions... --Balloonhead66 22:17, 26 October 2010 (UTC)


Use ==blah blah== for standard headings, ===blah blah=== for sub headings, ====blah blah==== for sub-sub headings, and so on... The max is 7 sizes (or equal symbols on both sides of the title). =blah blah= can be used like <h1> but equals are wiki format and that is what we like here... --Balloonhead66 19:42, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Repeating table cells

You can start a table row with |colspan="2" to make that cell spread to the next column. Set it to 3 to have it copied to the next 2 columns, etc... --Ryccardo 20:25, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

What do you think of the current type of table ( i got it from the firmware page ) we still need to find out what some of the node's do ( Berkeley Packet Filter is made by jailbreaking ) --liamchat 20:29, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
It's going pretty well, but I think we shouldn't mention availability on the iPhone 2G or other devices until someone can demonstrate its existence (except certain virtual devices like null and zero available on every unix-like system). --Ryccardo 21:03, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
This is what is making me think because i want the apple tv nodes because i think they will be very different ( hdmi, no battery ) and ptyp0-ptyp7 shuld be on all device's because they are part of armv6 --liamchat 21:25, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
