Help talk:Cheat sheet

Since we don't have a "sandbox" yet, should that be removed? Also, isn't there a way to "comment-out" lines, so they remain but are not visible?

You might want to keep the sandbox page while you are learning just to test thing out. I don't know what you mean by "comment-out" lines.

This page may be too advanced for you to edit. I was looking at it and maybe you should start out on something less complex. This page was created likely by a professional paid editor/page designer.

Too advanced for me to edit! HAH! Like, just because I have no fucking idea what is going on with the page code doesn't mean that... oh, wait... maybe it does that. Hmm.

Have you noticed that the links on the left - describing each topic - don't work?

Ex: Piped link

http://web.archive.org/web/20050608081931/http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piped_link

Archive.org has copies, *but* not of the page source. :- (

RE: Sandbox. Unless I am registered with Wikipedia, there doesn't exist a sandbox for me.

RE: Commenting-out

To "comment out" a line in computer coding, a symbol is placed before the line (often a colon) which causes the line to be ignored when compiling the code to run as an executable. But you knew that already, didn't you? ;- )

I think what you mean is this -<!-- text that is not visible except in edit mode--> This is ONLY used to send other people who may be editing a page a message on why something was added.

The sandbox page will be useful to you down the line when you want to experiment with templates or advanced code etc

In the case of an article like this one, where later on a now-invalid link could be added back, then I think the link should be commented-out but left in for later use.

The "cheat sheet" lacks some essential markup, like blockquotes, etc. I think that Somersaults's HTML guide should be "translated/converted" to include wiki markup, and made the real "cheat sheet".

Things like " -<!-- but but but - this IS visible--> " need to be included, too.

I assume you mean when there is a sandbox here at BW.

No, like the way I use this page Test just to make sure things I am working on work or if they need adjustment. Sometimes I don't want to edit a page until I know the code that I made works. --Etenne 13:08, 1 March 2014 (GMT)


It's wonderful that you've fixed at least some of the links to point to yet-to-be-created BW pages, but now that means I can't get the Wikipedia link to those pages. Grrrr... ;-)

And, yeah, I finally did see the thing about colons.

It works for me!
And me, too!

The only things I edited out was the unnecessary Wikipedia templates at the top of the page. Also, Template:Anchor is likely unnecessary (at least at this point) I have run into that one before and deemed it "more trouble than it was worth". A lot of templates are used simply to make Documentation pages.

PS... please drop everything you add into your Category:Junktest until it is finished. It will make me happy:)

--Etenne 14:21, 1 March 2014 (GMT)


I would, if only I had any idea how to. ;- )

Step-by-step...

You simply delete the Wikipedia categories at the bottom of the page and add [[Category:Junktest]]

I am off to do my marketing soon and isn't it your bedtime young man?

I see you have done that already. Thanks. But now I wonder what was originally there...

Bedtime? Young man? Hmm...

"Yes, daddy. Will you tuck me in before you go shopping? Give me a kiss goodnight. Ewww, that scratches, you need to shave!..." ;= ?

I have another pizza "baking" on the stove-top. It will be ready in about 10 minutes. Will you be joining me, or shall I dine alone?

(My keyboard is acting up again, so I had to use HTML. Sorry...)
