Adding a new fish
As well as adding the new fish page, there are several pages that also need updating in order for that fish to be included in the various lists that are present throughout this wiki. The fish template used facilitates a lookup mechanism whereby the data displayed in the lists is fetched from the fish page itself rather than hardcoded. This reduces data entry (only one entry to add per fish even if the fish appears in several islands), minimises maintenance and ensures the data throughout the wiki is synchronised. Thus, it is only necessary to add a standard piece of 'code' with the new fish name to each page. Blank templates of the text/code required are typically provided as a comment within each file.
NOTE: When adding information to any fish, please ensure to put all information inside of the infobox, using the "notes =" area to input miscellaneous information. As putting anything outside of the infobox will result in breaking the many tables in FW Wiki being unable to parse them correctly. This includes coded information such as templates, categories, etc.
Below is a list of all the associated pages that also need updating when a new fish has been added:
If the fish is NOT a limited time fish and is present in one of the first 5 islands (known as Farovia), it needs to be added to its appropriate island page as well as the main page:
If the fish is present in one of the 5 locations within Icelantica, the same applies here:
- The Fish of San Digloo
- The Fish of Lake Freezberg
- The Fish of Snowpeak River
- The Fish of Snowpeak Summit
If the fish is present in one of the 3 locations within Sig's Underwater lab, the same applies:
If the fish is present in one of the 3 locations within Parribea, the same applies:
If the fish is present in one of the 3 locations within the Geminisles, the same applies:
If the fish is present in one of the 3 locations within the Ten Year Storm, the same applies:
If the fish is present in within the Roperia region, USE the Roperia templates:
Other (non limited time) fish pages include..
Fish points table - Farovia ONLY
Roperia fish points table - Roperia ONLY
Used in Fish Points Values (use same info that you enter in the Fish gold/silver table - just replace "gold"/"silver" with "points")
If the fish is a limited time fish, then it should also be added to this list.
Note that any changes made to the individual tables may not be appear in the 'calling' page straight away due to any caching happening on the wikia server. They will update in due course, or if you are keen to see the updates, this can be viewed by editing the calling page and either previewing the change or saving the edit.
