This page serves to catalog this Wiki's design process.

Skill page structureEdit

In this wiki the skill pages are prefixed with the name of the Language, followed by the term "skill:", and the skill name, for example:


A image name must be named in a simple manner, so instead of having "Adjectives 1.png", "Adjectives 2.png", it should be:

  • "Adjectives.png"

This ensures that a page such as French Skill:Adjectives 1 uses an image stored in the File:Adjectives.png, instead of having two images for the same skill because most skills that teach a common theme share the same image.

Instructions to add imagesEdit

The links to the images are tracked in Module:Skills/images.

The file contains mapping of image names for the skills, as well as the skill names.

  • It automatically assumes a png extension for each image, e.g. Basics -> Basics.png .
  • It automatically tries to match any skill that is part of a single theme, e.g. :

Adjectives 1, adjectives 2 -> File:Adjectives.png

  • To add a specific image for a skill, add the skill name
["Name of image"] = {"Name of skill1","Name of other skill"}
["Nouns"] = {"Proper Nouns","Common Nouns"}

This maps image `File:Nouns.png` to all courses that contain the skills "Proper Nouns" and "Common Nouns" (e.g. French Skill:Proper Pronouns, Russian Skill:Common Nouns).

Example 2
["Bullfighter"] = {"Spanish Skill:Bull fighting"}

See how to upload an image in Help:Uploading. Note: The skills images should all be part of Category:Skills images.

Navigation Edit

The skills for each language are stored in Module:Skills/languagename. For example, the french skills are stored in :

Information box on the right side (infobox)Edit

The infobox for skills is Infobox_skill. It can be used for every skill page and automatically adds contents based on the contents of Module:Skills/images and Module:Skills/skillname.
