How to make a custom title.:
I see the Awesomeness.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.

Hi, I couldn't find any help on where to do accents/ umlauts/ non- standard- symbols in custom titles. The current entry only allows keyboard text, any advice on what to do with that? (Currently trying to change Series/Carnivale, which should have a grave accent on the second a)
Don't ask me, I just fix wicks.
TerradorablyfyingThere are a couple things you can do. You can use the combos on your keyboard, like alt-E for a ´ accent on a Mac, since the custom titler takes just the same text as any wiki page (though markup doesn't work). You can find the letter with the accent you want somewhere, e.g. by going to Wikipedia in a language that'll have it, copy the letter and paste it in. If neither of these can get you what you need, for instance if you want a superscripted 2, try looking up the HTML character code and paste that in; it'll display properly when the title is approved. I've submitted the request for you; it should show up soon. I used the copy-paste method, since Wikipedia has a convenient list of letters with the accent.
Let the wine of friendship never run dry.

ThatawayOn a PC, you can use the Character Map application to locate and copy/paste symbols, and many of them are also available on a standard keyboard by using the Alt-numberpad combinations.
A lil' bentô ?I've recently written an article for Dancing Blade Katte Ni Momotenshi and submitted a custom title for it, but while the custom title did appear correctly in the main article, on any other page I've added wicks to, it appears as Dancing Blade Katte Ni Momotenshi instead of Dancing Blade: Katte ni Momotenshi!. I tried to resubmit a custom title while putting the Visual Novel namespace as "Visualnovel" (instead of "VisualNovel"), but to no avail. Can someone please help me? (By the way, I have the same problem with Kisetsu O Dakishimete, which should appear as Kisetsu o Dakishimete.)

Another Wizard BoyNever send the custom title with CamelCase namespace first, resubmitting it the second time doesn't fix it.
A lil' bentô ?Thanks for the info, I didn't know that. I'll remember it the next time I'll make a article. However, is there no way to fix this mistake?

A lil' bentô ?Will do, thanks!
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
