How to set up an item for a page with no active STUFF items:

STUFF help page

1. In the article

Edit the article that pertains to the fact you want to STUFF.

  • First of all, make sure that you're logged in to a user name. Users who have not logged in may not add items to the STUFF process.
  • Place {{checkstuffpage}} on the article page at the top of the Fun Facts section, immediately below the ==Fun Facts== header.
  • If you are removing an item, cut the item in question to the clipboard.
  • Save the page. Describe your edit in the edit summary; do not mark it as minor.

2. The STUFF subpage

To set up the STUFF subpage:

  • You should see a prominent link to "this article's entry" in the new text. Follow that link (to "STUFF:pagename").

    Enter the following text, including the vertical line: {{stuffnew|
    Paste the fact from the clipboard (remove the asterisk, if necessary).
    If using links or other wiki markup, wrap <nowiki> tags around the fact.
    Type another vertical line, and then type a title for the item. Something brief, yet catchy.
    Finish with two closing braces: }}

    {{stuffnew|This is a questionable fact.|Catchy Title}}
    {{stuffnew|<nowiki>This is a questionable fact with [[links]] or ''wiki markup''.</nowiki>|Catchy Title}}

  • Preview the page, and follow the resulting additional instructions that are displayed when you preview the page.

3. Link to the index

Link the subpage to the main STUFF page:

  • Copy the STUFF page title ("STUFF:pagename") from the top of the page.
  • Switch to and edit HRWiki:STUFF.
  • Add a link to the new STUFF page at the top of the list of items, using the following form: {{STUFF:pagename}} (notice the curly braces).
  • Preview and save the page. Describe your edit in the edit summary; do not mark it as minor.
