More Wiki?

How about putting some more obscure wiki in the article? the {{fact}} for [Citation Needed] might be helpful. Telling people how to add the talk to their sig might be a nice thing to do too. Crackertalk 20:43, 14 March 2007 (EDT)

How do I create a new page? Crocoitetalk 12:45, 12 March 2007 (EDT)

I figured it out. I just did a search on "Toastmasters". Since the page didn't exist, it gave me a link to create a new page. Crocoitetalk 12:57, 12 March 2007 (EDT)


Anyone else having trouble getting maths to display? It seems I can only reference formulae which have already been rendered into PNG, like so:

That works, because someone has already got it to work over at the Sandbox. Presumably the image is cached. However, if I try to produce something new, like this:

Some web browsers support math, some do not. Same with MathML. --ALFa 16:50, 15 March 2007 (EDT)

No, ALFa, that is not the problem. I can paste the exact same formula on Wikipedia and Conservapedia, and it works on WP but not on CP. I get the same message as Tsumetai. Ga ohoyt 21:57, 17 March 2007 (EDT)


How do I mark an article as a stub?

type {{stub2} } down the bottom of the text, without the space in the second set of parentheses.


Header formatting

Does Conservapedia have a MOS like Wikipedia? For example, do headers use sentence case (They are like this) or title case (They Are Like This)? Ylmw21 23:52, 23 April 2007 (EDT)

Conservapedia has a Manual of Style, but it's quite rudimentary and doesn't cover your question. Philip J. Rayment 03:04, 24 April 2007 (EDT)

Images from Wikimedia Commons

I just noticed I can make a link to an image on Wikimedia Commons by using the form [[commons:image:Northwest passage.jpg|Northwest Passage routes]] which gives a working link Northwest Passage routes but I can't work out how I can actually embed the image in the Northwest Passage page instead of linking to it. Any ideas? --Scott 10:04, 26 May 2007 (EDT)

It appears that this is not possible. From here (my emphasis):
In general, to embed a Wikimedia Commons media file in Wikipedia or another Wikimedia wiki, just include it in the same way as if it were to be stored locally there.
"Wikimedia" wikis are Wikipedia in its various languages, Wiktionary, etc. It does not include all sites using wiki software. But in the future this might change (my emphasis again):
There is a proposal to allow non-Wikimedia wikis to easily access Commons material - meta:InstantCommons. This feature does not yet exist, so at the moment files must be separately uploaded to other wikis.
However, as indicated in that last quote, taking a copy of a picture there and uploading it to Conservapedia is allowed:
You are always welcome to download files you are interested in for reuse as long as you follow the license conditions provided alongside the files.
