Hello! Welcome to the wiki, use this space for any testing or questions. --LLin 19:37, 29 May 2007 (CDT)

I am trying to update the "impressions" for Whisper of the Heart. I link off of the "impressions" page and it updates with "Whisper of the Heart (impressions)". I created a couple of links there, one for US reviews and on for Japan reviews much like the example on the Princess Mononoke pages. However, the subsequent pages created don't have the auto update of "Whisper of the Heart (US review)" and when I make the title using the ==insert title== format, it doesn't auto create links at the top of the page like the FAQ page did.

Is that a function for another worker, or where can I find out how to make that functionality?

Pages not in the main infobox don't automatically inherit the film title (as you've seen). The code to show one phrase but link to another is something like: [[Princess Mononoke (US reviews - page 1)|US Reviews (page 1)]]. The part after the pipe is what's displayed on the page while the section before is the actual page. So for Whisper use [[Whisper of the Heart (US reviews)|US Reviews]]
Also remember to sign your entries on this page using the Sign your name link below, it'll insert your username and a timestamp.

One difference between the wiki and the static pages is that each media item (CD, DVD, etc) receives its own page. Take a look at the some of the Kiki media pages for an idea of the templates. --LLin 08:56, 1 June 2007 (CDT)

I may not understand what you're wanting me to look at on the KiKi site. I don't see any media pages or links to media pages for KiKi. I'm looking for examples on how to handle the "Related Media" and the "Availability" stuff so I'll be perusing the site tonight.

Found what I needed on the Spirited Away page :)

I'm working on the Whisper of the Heart "Availability" "Books" section. I have setup links to some compilation sheet music that deals with other movies as well and created the pages for said sheetmusic. I'm wondering if I did it correctly. If, for instance, someone working on "Nausicaa" started to build the availability link to that same sheetmusic, would it automatically go to the one I created, or would he inadvertently build a second one?

Duplicate pagenames aren't allowed, so their page would point to the one you created (as long as the title was exactly the same).

The main page for Whisper of the Heart has "All about the director - Hayao Miyazaki" Shouldn't this be changed to put info for Yoshifumi Kondou?

--W.Eric 19:54, 2 July 2007 (CDT)

Yes, the template should allow for substitution. Take a look at one of the Takahata films like Grave of the Fireflies for details.

Also, I'm wanting to upload the Whisper of the Heart pictures and can't figure out how. I can get the http info where they come from, but don't know where or how to put them in the proper template.

--W.Eric 21:07, 2 July 2007 (CDT)

You'll first have to save the pictures to your computer then use the Special:Upload page to perform the actual upload. As for the syntax it can be pulled from any other page that has a picture, the synopsis pages are good.

I think I'm coming along quite nicely. Currently I've linked the Whisper of the Heart-Availability-Books with several sheet music items that are compilations. I hadn't seen any others of these being done. I'm wondering if they are OK, and I started to upload the pictures for them but didn't know what naming convention to use. I obviously can't start them with Mimi_ as they are stand alone areas. Which led me to wonder if I built those pages with the right naming convention as well. (example: Animation Songs: Studio Ghibli Songs Collection.)

--W.Eric 2013, 5 July 2007 (CDT)

Not using a prefix is ok for the compilations since as you noted they don't belong to any particular film. Likewise using the CD title as the page title also makes sense.
