If I may, should this not be formatted in such a way that would draw the reader's attention, more or less scream, "There's more content"? The little grey box is a bit hard to find, especially for a casual user. Soxxeh 7:31am, December 24, 2011 (UTC)

If you want to run some tests on your personal css, you're more than welcome. On the other hand, this is the basic format that's been used on the Transformers wiki for basically forever, and they've had no troubles with it. Basically, if you want to jazz it up some go ahead, but my main concern is that the actual lead of the article should still be visible when you open the article."We're werewolves, not swearwolves."

What about something like this, as seen [[here? --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 18:15, 25 December 2011 (UTC)
That solves the concern of keeping the lead visible, but...dude, that thing is aggressively painful to the eyes. Seriously though, just test things out in the css, take a screenshot."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 20:19, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

What I cooked up: (Keep in mind that it only shows the "Suite" tab. If there was Game:Suite, or Quotes:Suite, or Card:Suite, those would show also.)


Another example:


Additionally, if we had a Suite/Suite page, it would exclude anything else and read only data from there (in the form Label1/Link1/Label2/Link2/.../Label9/Link9). Thoughts?

Looks fantastic--Dark-EnigmaXIII 19:47, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
I like the look of the tabs, but would you mind explaining the Suite/Suite page part? I don't really understand what you mean. --Item_2384.png AS IF! Item_2384.png 23:06, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
Well in terms of the Zack page, it would be Zack/Suite. That page would just contain a list of links and labels for the tabs. Let's say, in the example of Maleficent, we wanted a separate page for Dragon and Boss. The Maleficent/Suite page would be: Dragon Form/Maleficent (Dragon)/Human Form/Maleficent (Boss)/Cards/Card:Maleficent/Quotes/Quotes:Maleficent. Those descriptions could be different, but that's just an example. Soxxeh 23:15, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
Ooh. I feel like if you could make it so that those pages showed up in the suite tabs, that would be better than just having another page with all the links on it. If you do have to make one, I suggest changing the name on the tab, so that it says "More...". That way the reader knows that it links to more information about the article in question, rather than have him/her be confused by what a "Suite" is. --Item_2384.png AS IF!

You misunderstood, and I don't blame you; this is really hard to understand without an example. But I can't create one without actually accessing the mainspace. What I'm trying to say is that the Maleficent/Suite page content will generate the tabs on the normal pages. So in the above example, there would be the default "Maleficent" tab, then a "Dragon Form" tab that linked to Maleficent (Dragon), and so on. Soxxeh 23:28, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
So, you basically want to make a page for each article where you specify what tabs will appear on the article, then use the page in the actual article and *presto!* the tabs appear on the top of the page. I think I get it. If that's what it is, then I'm all for it. --Item_2384.png AS IF! Item_2384.png 23:46, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
Bingo! Yup, Suite template is added to each page -> Suite template reads from /Suite page -> Tabs appear! Soxxeh 23:51, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
I think this would warrant test pages on the mainspace, just as a demonstration. Of course, it would have to limited to one article, but I think it would be a good idea to try it out. Because it looks bloody brilliant, and I think it would look even cooler in action.KRCCFNF is tired of being STEPPED ON. 02:16, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
I would really like to push for this to become the new "Suite" Template...the current one looks absolutely terrible on articles...randomly inserted to the right and adding extra space to the top of the article = UGH-FEST!!! - ripped from the actual gameEternal Nothingness XIIIripped from the actual game 22:50, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
So how is this going on? I greatly appreciates Soxra's changes, shouldn't they be implemented?--ShardofTruth 00:47, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
I need Soxra to figure out how to make the js work for the dynamic suite version, and to combine his design into it. Basically, we're waiting on him because I've hit a brick wall."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 01:54, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days[edit]

It is possible to trick the suite template for this one? For obvious reasons it doesn't like the slash in the game's title. -- ShardofTruth 01:53, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

The obvious (and most extremely tedious) solution is to use a different character to parse the */Suite pages, like "%". I dunno if there's a way to trick the template, though. (That's a question for Soxra) --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 02:19, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
