    Wiki Text Editor: Side-By-Side headings

    Post by dalsio on Mon Nov 19, 2012 6:17 pm

    I've looked at the wiki help page but it doesn't tell me what I need to know.

    1. I'm wanting to put two separate heading texts on the same line aligned to either side of the page, but I'm having issues with getting two texts on one line aligning to different sides and having two separate headings on the same line with the text editor. Is there a way to do this, or is it a limitation of the wiki editor?

    2. Is there an easier way to align text with the text editor besides using the "span style=..." code?

    1 - Are you trying to make columns?
    It can be done, but through stylesheet, javascript and multiple page includes. It ends up making the wiki pages too complicated for the majority of users.
    The easy solution is to make a simple table with two columns, to divide the page/text in two. The table borders are still showing though.
    Example on top: http://darksoulswiki.wikispaces.com/test+page

    2 - For normal wiki formatting you have to use the span style. I believe wikispaces didn't have any align option at all before the visual editor was implemented.
    For tables you just use a = at the start of the cell, which centers all text in that cell.

    Mmm. I don't know if I want to re-learn javascript for only one wiki page, but it would be a nice addition for all the place walkthroughs to be able to quickly go to the bottom of the page and select the previous/next area, or go back to the index without having 3 awkward headings on 3 separate lines. I'll see what kind of shenanigans I can do with it without making it too complicated to change.
