Re: Signature template

Thank you! It had been a while since I worked with signatures, and I wasn't exactly focused at the time with how you guys do your sigs. No help will be needed, though I appreciate the offer. Madnessfan34537 lL5xjBH.png 19:43, March 18, 2015 (UTC)

Hello, Bobogoobo. You have new messages at (7)6(four)'s talk page.
You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{Talkback}} or {{Tb}} template.

I had forgotten another thing: Twitter images can be found at higher resolution by having image URLs end with ":orig" (for example, either of these two to this). (7)6(four) (talk) 19:01, March 30, 2015 (UTC)

Awesome, thanks. Added. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 03:04, March 31, 2015 (UTC)

Two bugs in mouseover image

Hey, I've noticed a while ago this neat feature with images appearing when you mouseover over the link. Just letting you know about two things. First, it apparently doesn't work for Mane-iac. Second, when I have a link to Flim and Flam and I write [[Flim and Flam|Flam]], (Flam) then Flim will be shown – it might be slightly confusing to those who don't know how this code actually work. Perhaps there could be some exceptions coded for such links to articles with more than one character? Vengir (talk) 09:55, March 27, 2015 (UTC)

I know about the issue where there are multiple characters on one page, that's on my list to work on. Fixed the Mane-iac case, thanks for pointing that out. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 15:35, March 27, 2015 (UTC)
The multi-character page issue could, in the meantime, be worked around by using group images (examples: Big Boy and Runt, Fancy Pants' entourage, Iron Pony competition cheerleaders), though this wouldn't be possible for some cases (examples: Blue Moon and North Star, MandoPony).

i don't know how to edit the wiki but on applejacks page there's no temp for applejack when she was turned into a colt in magic duel and i was thinking there should be one

Updates for the other wikia

Hey Bobogoobo, i know you might still be busy and all, but i was wondering if you could just try to add some of the newest features and updates you did on the MLP:FIM wikia to the Bronies Wikia (which i guess you can do through the "coding page") as well, like the new "small picture of the character appearing when you touch the link to that character`s page" thing, updating the maps so its like that of this wikia, fix the "Gallery template" so the picture is a little more to the left and the text below is just a little bit upward, and etc... ?

P.S Still kinda waiting for you to reply to the message I sent you long ago on that wikia.

Bleck11 (talk) 18:46, April 4, 2015 (UTC)

You don't need to edit your message five times. I'm starting a full-time job on Monday so I've been preparing for that, and don't have much extra time. I'm not the only one who can help you, maybe you should find one of the regular editors of that wiki who knows something about the type of coding you need. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 01:25, April 5, 2015 (UTC)
I know, sorry for that, just thought is saw some bad spelling and wording i my message, so i only tried to fix that.
And for your question, well i acually have tried to do so, but none of the other user`s there appears to know about coding like you do and i have asked around on other sites for help, but to no use. :(
So thats why I and the other Admins hope that you will try to help us with all this once you have time and feel for it, so we can finally furter update that wikia and learn a bit from you as well, which is why we also made you the "Template Repairman" on Bronies Wikia, the fandom counterpart of this wiki.
Bleck11 (talk) 01:49, April 5, 2015 (UTC)
Well for maps there's no need to duplicate them. You can link to any map using its number as a local link, and it will redirect there. For example, here is a local link to the one you have on that wiki: Special:Maps/1729. I'll go look at the gallery template now. As for the image popup script, it's still in development. Maybe once it's fully completed, I'll make it so it can easily be imported on other wikis. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 03:47, April 5, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the info, I have fixed the map on that wikia now. :)
And thats nice, it would be great and very helpful if you could do so and add the codes for that feature, along with maybe the codes of some other new features that you has given this wikia that could be suitable for Bronies wikia too, on the "code page" of Bronies wikia once you have completed it. XD
As for the "Gallery infobox", well we would like to just have the "gallery picture" moved a little tiny bit more to the left, like you see on this one, not really the text located below it (the text can stay placed as it was before and did not need to be moved to the left).
Bleck11 (talk) 08:55, April 5, 2015 (UTC)
How is it now? ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 16:20, April 5, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, now the gallery template is perfect, thanks. :)

Template:Emote Coding and Steps

May I please ask the JS and codings regarding the Emote template and the steps on how to make it work? Cuz I tried once.....and I sucked up. (facebook)

Thanks for reading this.

kBh6dCt.gifPinkgirl234 Sweet Treat 5DbANvV.png 05:12, June 2, 2015 (UTC)

From MediaWiki:Common.js, copy everything from before the starting "//" on the line where it says "Support for [[Template:Emote]]" until the closing } that is not indented. Copy it to your wiki's Common.js. Then go to your MediaWiki:Emoticons page, open your browser's dev tools (usually F12 will do it), go to Console, type in wgArticleId and press Enter. Copy the number that shows up, and where it says 28113 in the JS you copied, replace that with the new number (make sure it's still surrounded by apostrophes within the brackets). Assuming you have also copied over the template, you should clear your browser's cache (Ctrl+Shift+R on a page on that wiki will do it, at least in Firefox) and then it should work. If not, the easiest thing to do is for me to just take a look at it and see what's going wrong. Also make sure you have your emoticons on MediaWiki:Emoticons and they're set up properly. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 01:14, June 3, 2015 (UTC)
Thank you so so so muuuuuuuuuuuuch!!! All I can do now is hug you sooooo bad!!! (:D) (hug2) (hug3) (hug13) (hug14)

Close a discussion

Do you mind closing this discussion? Its original topic has been thoroughly discussed and now it's wandering off into general discussion about the guidelines, which would be better in its own thread. Throwy 07:16, June 2, 2015 (UTC)

Looks like Jonny already handled it. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 01:14, June 3, 2015 (UTC)

Codings For Fixed Images

Are there any JS or CSS codings to make the fixed images template work? If so, what are the codings?

kBh6dCt.gifPinkgirl234 Sweet Treat 5DbANvV.png 01:33, June 12, 2015 (UTC)

Nope, it should work with just the template code. It also makes use of {{R}} for external images. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 01:58, June 12, 2015 (UTC)

Infobox overview link / EG chronology

Hey, Bobo. Could you add a new page link in {{Infobox character}} under "Other links" that links to "{{PAGENAME}}/Gallery/Overview"? And could you also add Friendship Games to {{Infobox film}}'s chronology so the errors on this page are fixed? Thanks in advance. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 15:07, July 19, 2015 (UTC)

Should be good now. Let me know if anything is amiss. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 21:28, July 19, 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, could you add My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games/Animated shorts to the chronology as well (before Friendship Games)? :P furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 20:15, August 18, 2015 (UTC)

No worries, done. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 21:42, August 18, 2015 (UTC)


Taking into account your images placeholder page and how we're having some template categories pop up here, would you agree to making a page such as at Project:Placeholder and having it on the project namespace instead, for images, categories and the like? B0lGGoQ.gifOz   11:23, July 22, 2015 (UTC)

Sounds good. I think I'll just go move it there and update it. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 23:10, July 22, 2015 (UTC)


How does the lyrics-toggle script work? I tried pasting code from Common.js into my browser console while viewing your sandbox as you suggested, but on first glance, it doesn't appear to do anything. [Show] button doesn't display anything when pressed. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 03:34, July 26, 2015 (UTC)

Here is the code to copy. If that still doesn't work, check your browser console for errors or messages at the bottom. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 03:40, July 26, 2015 (UTC)

File permission categories

Is there any reason to keep Category:Copyrighted Media, Category:Fair use images, and Category:Free images around? The only member of any of these categories is Project:Placeholders, after you disabled them from being added by any file permission templates a while back. If they are kept and put back into service, while they're still empty would be a great time to rename them if so desired. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 04:21, July 29, 2015 (UTC)

Oh yeah, forgot I did that. Personally I think it would be good to keep track of the licensing on non-show images, but it's not something that really anyone would spend the time looking up and making sure it's correct. Maybe a forum discussion on how to handle licensing on the wiki would be appropriate, hopefully with a good amount of discussion. There have been a couple discussions before, which have basically said that until we get asked to take something down, we won't bother with any licensing (one, two). Or I could just re-enable the categories. Don't actually remember why I disabled them. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 20:33, July 29, 2015 (UTC)
Another point would be that just because the categories are in use doesn't mean their use would actually have to be enforced. WMF wikis are super-anal about keeping files properly tagged because of the visibility and stated goals of the project(s), but on Wikia and elsewhere that I've had experience, proper file tagging is a much lower priority (with the exception of the Templates wiki, since files uploaded there are supposed to be used in templates, and thus are meant to be uploaded to other wikis that reuse those templates, but even then, it's mostly just me enforcing anything). Generally, the attitude is usually "we probably won't be proactive, but if you want to tag files, have at it as long as it's all correct". ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 20:39, July 29, 2015 (UTC)

About "pony list table"?

Hey Bobogoobo, sorry for bothering you with this, but I have been asking a lot of people for a while now if any of them could show/tell me how to use and create the exact same "pony list table", like the one seen here, on the pages of the Bronies wikia. However, no one knows how to do so as far as I have heard. :l

I understand that you are already busy enough as you have told me before, but I and the other Admins on that other wikia would be really grateful if you could just explain how to create a "pony list table" like you have on this wikia, you are kinda the only one left that may help us with this now, as far as I know?

Bleck11 (talk) 16:14, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

It's really just a table, not much special about it. You can see how it works in the code on the page you linked. It has an anchor for the character's name, then just cells with information and then a picture. The vertical text are images as well, and the colored cells use a template you can copy. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 19:51, August 3, 2015 (UTC)
Ok, I try to do that then, thank you so much for answering this. :)

Infobox crew

I'm starting to get into the habit of making fully fleshed-out pages for MLP cast and crew members. Examples:

With that in mind, might I propose a new infobox for "crew" or "crew member" with the following parameters?

{{Infobox crew
|image      =
|caption    =
|full name  =
|nickname   =
|sex        =
|birthdate  =
|occupation =
|role       = (for voice roles, if any)
|website    =

furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 20:49, August 6, 2015 (UTC)

Don't know if that will help, but the Portuguese MLP Wiki already use a template for crew pages like this one, if you want you guys can use this one to inspire yours.Matheus Leonardo VSTF 21:05, August 6, 2015 (UTC)
Looks great. Template done at {{Infobox crew}}. Let me know if you want anything changed or added. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 21:59, August 6, 2015 (UTC)
Looks pretty good. Can you make it allow for blank fields (to display filled fields even if preceding fields are empty)? furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 22:26, August 6, 2015 (UTC)
Done - made it so voice roles is the last row and only shows when filled in, the rest will always show. The behavior you didn't want is built into the Infobox template and I'd rather keep using it for consistency, so I just made the easy change. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 23:44, August 6, 2015 (UTC)
Okay, that works fine. Thanks a lot. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 00:04, August 7, 2015 (UTC)
Saw your edit summary - fixed. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 03:03, August 7, 2015 (UTC)
Last tweak, I think -- could you make it exclude Category:Cast and Crew from Workshop pages? furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 01:53, August 22, 2015 (UTC)
Yep. I did pretty much the same thing you tried earlier, did that not work? ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 05:35, August 22, 2015 (UTC)

It might have, had I just waited for the cache to refresh. :P Thanks though. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 14:31, August 22, 2015 (UTC)

Music Player

Hey there Bobo, I was wondering if you know anything about the YouTube Player template, it's that everytime I copy and paste a song to my page, it would always show "embed/AAAAaaAaAa1" rather than the template itself. Those A's and 1 was just an example. If you know much about it, then it's okay. G7hYaJm.png Seaswirl10 Talk1jqEIJo.gif 10:06, August 29, 2015 (UTC)

It looks to me like, due to recent-ish security issues, Wikia has disabled verbatim tags completely which are required for it to work. Take a tour around some other profiles and you would probably notice that it works for nobody. Even wiki's javascript is locked from editing. They should unlock javascript sooner or later, but verbatims are probably gone forever, which means that the template will probably have to be rewritten to javascript. Vengir (talk) 10:29, August 29, 2015 (UTC)
The above is mostly accurate. There are some recent posts on Community Central about the security issues and what they are doing to resolve them. There was a popup saying that the template that people used for that YouTube player was disabled. I don't plan on helping replace it because I always found it annoying and wrote my own script to disable it. I recommend just embedding a video using the <youtube> tag (assuming that still works). ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 04:19, August 30, 2015 (UTC)
<youtube> still works, but only if used inside {{#tag: function. This is what song infoboxes are doing at the moment. Of course it's unable to embed it on autoplay, but honestly, I too hate autoplaying music. Vengir (talk) 09:20, August 30, 2015 (UTC)
