Hi there. I'm looking to add a feature into an existing template on Robot Wars Wiki. 99% of the coding on our Wiki has been me experimenting with trial and error, but this one is beyond me.
Take a robot like Panic Attack.
Basically there were six versions of the robot ever made. As it is, we can only display one image and one set of statistics; the rest is spread throughout the article.
What I would like is the feature that COD Wiki (and others, but this is the only one I can find) has for the AK-47.
See how you can click the "tab" at the top to change from COD4 to MWR? I want to be able to program that onto our Template:Robot. I want all of the information besides the heading to change depending on which tab is selected.
My questions are as follows:
1. Is it possible to have one template that we can then program a number of "tabs". Some robots have one appearance and therefore don't need a tab, and others have 8. 2. Do I need to create two templates, one for non-tab robots and one for tab robots, OR do I need to create 12 templates based on how many versions of the robot there are?
- Additionally, I cannot follow this forum to get email updates when people edit it, so can someone please drop a quick message on my talk page if there's activity here so I can check it? Toon Ganondorf (t c) 10:33, December 5, 2017 (UTC)
- Actually, this is possible using the <gallery> tag. Take the following code:
<gallery> PanicAttack.jpg | Panik Attack Roadblock.jpg | Road Block </gallery>
That would then cause Panik Attack's image to be the default, but allow for a tab called "Road Block" that, when pressed, would show Road Block's image. This can be included as-is above in the images variable without requiring modifications to the main template.--TwoTailedFox (talk) 19:15, December 7, 2017 (UTC)
