Sylum Wiki: To Tab or Not To Tab


The Wiki.

How I despise thee.

Some of you may recall a few months back I made an announcement that due to updates from wordpress, the tabs weren’t working on the theme we had.  We ended up changing themes, only to discover tabs worked on Pages not Posts.

Noticing that the plug in hadn’t been update in a while, we figured best to change the format of the posts, taking away the tabs.

Guess what’s working.

Come on guess!

Yep the tabs.

*sighs along with rolling my eyes*

So here’s the question we have for you.   Keep the new format?  Or go back to tabs?

New Format: James Malone

Tab Format: Timothy Quinn

Sylum Update: Blogs & Things


Well I’m back!  Ish.

I’ve been working on a few behind the scenes updates.  There was a lot more behind the scenes updates that needed to be done, than I realized.

Wiki Blog:  After WordPress did their last update a few things broke!  The main problem was the tab function which is on every post, didn’t work anymore.  I waited a bit to see if the theme would get updated and it just hasn’t been, so we’ve uploaded a new theme.  The Wiki has a whole new look check it out!

Sylum Blog:  After WordPress did their last update a few things broke! (Hmmm I think there’s a running theme here) Well on the bright side most of the issues were fixed, mainly the read more cut.  The one thing that hasn’t been fixed is the inability to read comments that have been made.  You can make a comment, reply to a comment, but can’t see said comments.  At the moment I’m looking into updating the theme for the blog – it could use a fresh look.

Sylum Security Yahoo Group:  Oh what can I say about this … many many things.  We’ll start with Yahoo Sucks!  As of December 15th Yahoo Group will no longer exists – why they couldn’t just do this last year I do not know.  So yes, we had to find a new group.  Which hey we did!  Go us.

We made a new Sylum Security Group at Groups.io (fingers crossed this will stick along longer than a year).  The password at the moment isn’t changing, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t join the group.  As we’re going to be changing the password on a yearly bases for security reasons, so you still need to sign up.

New Group: https://groups.io/g/SylumSecurity

A few things about the new group:  It’s easier to use!  There are a few ways to sign in, you don’t have to have a yahoo or google account to do it.  It sends out automatic welcome and monthly reminders (I may have teared up a bit with this one).  And well if at some point we decided to have a ‘discussion board/email’ type thing again – it’s set up for it.

Sylum Archive: For once with all the updates, continued to work in pristine condition *eyes it – this doesn’t mean you can screw up now!* So that one is staying the same 🙂

 

 

Sylum Information: Caretaker Change for Vampire Council

 

So why the change?

First, I never liked Jeeves and Wooster.

Second, in truth Wooster wouldn’t have been a servant to anyone – that was why he had Jeeves.

Third, they never fit.

So why so late in changing them?

It wasn’t until the recent passing of Robert Guillaume, that I remembered Benson and new he was perfect for the Council.

Seven Days of Summer 2018: Wiki Update


We’ve had some secondary updates on the Sylum Wiki.  For this round we’ve edited a few of the pages: Sylum Library, Wiki Navigation, and the Welcome Page.  We’ve also added a Site ID image (hopefully it shows up). *Actually we have Site IDs for the Blog and Website also.

One of the major things we’ve been working on is adding more Diversity into the Clans.  So you will see more characters in Ghost/Darkness, Shogun and Oceania.  We worked to also include more woman through all the Clans.

Note: We’re always updating images … a special thank you to taibhrigh for all their hard work on the Wiki.  So do stop by on occasions to see what images have been changed.

Added Characters: 32 New Characters!! 8 of those were last minute, as we suddenly had an influx of characters for Oceania.

Search Feature: Sylum Wiki Blog

Wiki Blog Update

When I went to do maintenance on the Wiki Blog, I noticed that search queries were not pulling up any findings!  Despite the fact we all know, there is enough Michael’s and Sam’s to pull up at least 5 bios!!

It took some time, but was able to locate the problem and fix it.

If you were searching for anything on the Blog the past few days, and didn’t find anything – this would be why.  Feel free to try your searches again.

If some of you don’t mind, could you test the search function to make sure it is actually working and reply to this post … that would be great!

Sylum Advent 2017: December 1st

***

This was a very large update!!  Hence we had to take the Wiki down for a week to prep everything for Advent.

So here’s the thing.  We’ve done some re-arranging, adjusting, deletions and additions.  Along with updating the Clan Pages, The Library, and Main Tables!

Some of this rearranging is due to changes that is going on within the stories, set up for future stories, protecting Sylum from actors/actress that ended up on the ‘oh hell no list’, and storylines that have been abandoned.

Just to give you a small indication of how big this update really was …

Deleted Characters: 24

Added Characters: 50

Moved Characters: 10

Let’s just say the only Clan that didn’t get touched in some way: Sila Kin Clan.

On top of the character updates we’ve also updated the main tables to show case the 10 Races … you might remember the post about it.  Tags have been added to characters that are related to these specific categories.

We have changed a few things around.  The Home Page is now a static page that introduces Sylum, and has a table with links to the Clans, Clan Positions, Organizations, Ten Races, and Enemies.

The bios will not be seen under the ‘Sticky Post’.

Please Note: As we’re on a shared server and we’ve officially started Advent … remember that lag time could happen, so be patient!

Sylum Wiki: Maintenance

While leading up to Advent, there are updates that need to be done on the Wiki.

Enough updates, that we need to shut it down for Maintenance.

So from this moment the Sylum Wiki Blog is Closed for Update.

It will Re-Open at Advent!!

Sylum Wiki Teaser

We’ve been working on a pretty big update to the Sylum Wiki Blog …

New Characters!!

New Images!! (on going project – thank you Taibhrigh)

Adding in the 10 Races.

Wait? Ten Races?

Yes, these were laid out in the rework of Roads Untravelled.   We specifically showcased them as an introduction – as many of them will come into play in future storyline.

Some are already on earth, a few have visited, and a few have been visited.

Lets recap! (Check under the cut – this ended up being a long post)

Wiki Update: New Look & New Characters

The Sylum Wiki Blog has a new look!! 

We’re always trying to find better ways to view, sort and find things you need to enjoy the Sylum Universe.  The Wiki basically got a simple facelift, making it slightly easier to view, the set up is still the same.

NOTE: At this moment Wiki Index Page is broken, the program that runs the index hasn’t been updated to the latest wordpress.  When it’s up and running again we’ll make another announcement.  In the many time – use the SEARCH field to search for characters … we’re building an extensive index list in the background that will make things easier to find.

We’ve recently removed characters: A few were do to adjustments in their storyline, and others do to the actor playing the role ended up on the ‘oh hell no list’, pulling other characters associated to their bios with them.  We’ve also changed the image of at least one character for the same reason.

Reminder: The ‘oh hell no list’ is actors/actress that stood against the basic principles we showcase, and would probably took offense to all things Sylum, and we work hard to keep Sylum a safe place, plus lets not anger the ‘powers to be’.

We’ve also added five new characters over the past few months, though these don’t directly replace the ones removed they do added more diversity to Sylum.

Characters Removed:

Tallikut Clan: 

Timothy Taylor
Jill Taylor
Brian Kenny
Justin Taylor

Image Changed:

Dirk Pitt

Bios Removed Pending Changes:

Catherine Willows
Clavo Cruz
Ramon Cruz
Sean Boswell
Ellis Cochrane

Characters Added: 

Tallikut Clan:

Barry Frost

Victor Henricksen – Tuckercat your timestamp just became the 4th story in the Carry On My Wayward Son Series … so it may take longer to get written than anticipated.  At the moment Pirates are in the way 🙂

Mod Kin Clan:

Angela Bennett

Sanguen Vitae Clan (India):

Jayadeep Mir

Medjai Clan:

Henenu
