Continuing my how to guides, I'm writing a how to on the custom title system. Next time somebody uses a custom title with non-regular text such as Unicode, I would appreciate screen shots.
It seems you need to add some kind of special coding to a title. Fortunately, we no longer need to use the ptitle system, and you can now customize a title to display the title properly. Use this anytime you need to change the way a page title looks such as adding punctuation or non-standard characters.
Our example page of the day is going to be Series.Athena Goddess Of War
, which needs a simple colon added to the name.
First, go to the tools menu and select "Customize Title". You can access and use this menu from any page on the wiki.
After clicking the "Customize Title" button, you should see the following screen:
Here's where you enter the proper wikiword for what you want customized.*
Hit the "go" button. This will load the title and any current custom titles for the page.
Enter the proper title, in this case we'll be adding in the colon for the proper name.
Hit the "send" command and the title will show up so a mod can check and make sure it works properly.
