I've set up the wiki software at If you have any questions or comments, please leave me a message here.--Samuelmichaels (talk) 02:36, 4 May 2012 (EST)

One great job! Had to do some research to figure out how some of the templates work - really neat stuff!

I haven't yet discovered if you have left an explanation of how everything works somewhere, but it would really be neat if you did.

If nothing else, a short tutorial on what has to be done to set up a new book.

I like the Stub idea!

Should it be put on all the chapter pages as I create them?

--SPLTWikiSysop (talk) 14:11, 12 July 2013 (EDT)

Yes, I think putting {{stub}} on "empty" chapter pages would make sense.--Samuelmichaels (talk) 21:57, 15 July 2013 (EDT)

Wes Photos

Any ideas on how to have the captions show up better. The red text is sometimes hard to see against the dark background and appears way off the image. Can the text block be wider? just below the image?

thanks!--SPLTWikiSysop (talk) 12:25, 17 September 2014 (EDT)

I noticed that! They were white by default, but that didn't work well with some backgrounds. I thought dark red would be better, but well, no. I thought of a wider box too. I need to play with it, I guess -- maybe this weekend. The tooltips work fairly well, though -- try hovering over a thumbnail to see its caption.--Samuelmichaels (talk) 23:22, 17 September 2014 (EDT)

Like the way captions show up on the thumbnails so much that I think having the caption show up when hovering over the full picture may be the way to go! --SPLTWikiSysop (talk) 21:47, 21 September 2014 (EDT)

I Changed the size and background of the caption (when you expand the image) -- let me know how you like it. And yes, the tool-tip (hover) capture is nice,--Samuelmichaels (talk) 21:49, 21 September 2014 (EDT)

Captions for both thumbnails and full pix look cool now! Somehow on 262 -264 captions are lost and URL for picture shows up instead.--SPLTWikiSysop (talk) 21:50, 26 September 2014 (EDT)

Actually, URL rather than caption is true on a lot of images!--SPLTWikiSysop (talk) 21:51, 26 September 2014 (EDT)

The problem is Wes keeps replacing the captions on his web page, so unless they are captured somewhere, I don't know how to restore the old captions. The images themselves are easy enough -- they have a fixed name with increasing numeric part.--Samuelmichaels (talk) 10:36, 27 September 2014 (EDT)
