Designation Page Template

From NavalCoverMuseum
Jump to: navigation, search

After you add a new hull designation to the designation index pages, the link will appear in red if no page exists for that link. To create the page, click on the link and the editor will appear. To make the process easier and maintain consistency, copy and paste the following template (all the text inside the box just below with the border made out of blue dashes) into the editor and make appropriate modifications as described below.

<!-- How to edit this page:

 For detailed information on editing this page, click the "How To Edit Pages" link 
 in the navigation bar and look for the article on "Editing Hull Designation Pages". 
 If you run into trouble or need to do something a little more complicated, contact 
 the Curator for help.

 Don't forget to preview the page before saving it and please add a short description 
 of the change in the Summary text box just above the Save / Show buttons at the bottom 
 of the page. A short description would be something like "added entry for USS FREEDOM XX-34".

The following ships have designation:&nbsp;&nbsp;
<b>ACRONYM&nbsp;&nbsp;-&nbsp;&nbsp;DESCRIPTION</b>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="10" width="95%" rules="rows" frame="below">
<tr><td width="50"><b>Hull Number</b></td><td valign="bottom"><b>Ship Name</b></td></tr>
<!-- =================================== -->
<!-- Do not add anything above this line -->
<!-- =================================== -->

<tr><td>HULL NUMBER</td><td><!-- [[PAGE_NAME | --> SHIP NAME<!-- ]] --></td></tr>

<!-- =================================== -->
<!-- Do not add anything below this line -->
<!-- =================================== -->
</table>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
If a ship is missing from this list or if no page is associated with a ship 
(ie, the ship's name is not an active link), then either [[Contact_Us | 
contact the Curator]] or edit this page yourself and fix it. See 
[[Editing_Hull_Designation_Pages | Editing Hull Designation Pages]] for 
detailed information on editing this page.

You need to make a couple of modifications before saving the page.
 
First, you need to find the following line in the template:
 
<b>ACRONYM&nbsp;&nbsp;-&nbsp;&nbsp;DESCRIPTION</b>
 
It is the fourth line above the
 
<!-- =================================== -->
<!-- Do not add anything above this line -->
<!-- =================================== -->

 
You will need to change this line and give appropriate values for ACRONYM and DESCRIPTION. For example, if the page you are creating is for designation FSF - Fast Sea Frame, the line should look something like:
 
<b>FSF&nbsp;&nbsp;-&nbsp;&nbsp;Fast Sea Frame</b>

 

Notice that the template includes a generic "inactive link" template for adding ships.
 
<tr><td>HULL NUMBER</td><td><!-- [[PAGE_NAME | --> SHIP NAME<!-- ]] --></td></tr>
 
You can copy and paste it as many times as needed and then replace "HULL NUMBER", "PAGE_NAME", and "SHIP NAME" with appropriate values. If you need the link to be "active", just remove the HTML comment tags. For more information, see Editing Hull Designation Pages.

 

If you run into trouble or need to do something a little more complicated, contact the Curator for help.

Don't forget to preview the page before saving it and please add a short description of the change in the Summary text box just above the Save / Show buttons at the bottom of the page. A short description would be something like "page created".
