  • Please be very careful about copying content from other wikis (Murdoch Mysteries) to Frankie Drake wiki, better to create a link to that wiki page; it is a practice not recommended on Fandom at large.

    • Appreciate the contributions to expand FDM, just need to keep the two separate fandoms with wiki good practices. Thanks!!


      Also FYI, FDM wiki format was created with the Fandom markup (upgrade) unlike older MM wiki - so you may notice it works a bit differently.

    • Brooklyn 99 wiki works the same as FDM. It's a little weird to get used to, on both of them. Any reason why MM doesn't have the same?

    • MM wiki was created years before the migration to the new markup (especially infoboxes templates) and Fandom (2019), so migrating the site (over 1500 articles) poses some risks and is no easy task. The orginators of the MM wiki want to preserve the format and content – the look and feel – , so it is a slow process Admin focuses on (underneath the hood) during the summer before each new season (and articles are added) that is why we've been rather finicky about format, links and syntax. You can see the difference between the templates 'infobox cast' (new) and 'infobox character' (old) as an example.

    • Ah, I see. I'm not, I guess "tech-y" so I didn't know how hard it would be to migrate everything oof. Altho I definetely see the difference between the formats.

    • Very tech-y-geek-y – totally different code language from old to new: Admin is "experimenting" on the live 'infobox cast' template before the other 12 templates will migrate. There are also some quirks in the Navbox and other templates as well; all this has to translate/work on all desktop browsers and mobile devices.

    • Still sounds like complete gibberish to me xD. And speaking of geeky code language, how exactly do you fix the infoboxes? I can't seem to figure it out.

    • When you are editing do you use the VisualEditor mode or Classic? In the Classic mode you have the Source tab which gives you access to the code syntax (markup) of the article: this is where one can edit the markup. So, I have noticed when one edits the infobox from the VisualEditor mode (clicking directly on the inbox to add information), this can 'scramble' the code syntax into a gibberish-looking paragraph in the Source. In Classic rich-text via the Source tab, one can add information and arrange (type) the paragraph infobox into the line format of the markup.

      Any other fixes to the infoboxes is via the original template and deeper under-the-hood stuff is an Admin only access on Fandom.

      Also, you can select the Classic mode as a default setting via your account preference.

    • I... guess I use classic mode by the way you describe it. But for infoboxes I do use visual editor most of the time. Guess I should start editing them in source?

    • Did the same when I first started, now I first edit in the Source, then check it out in VisualEditor, and then in Preview; Have to say my skill in code syntax has improved, but my grammar and spelling is another matter xD

    • Would you be interested in adding deatils to Florence Nightingale Graham article under Operation: Murder  – how she and George first meet, date, kiss, career choices, etc..?
