As I suspected - or hoped!! (I did not think I was that blind or dumb) - we must have different authorisations - As no little pencil for me Here is what my editor screen looks like..
You know, we need editors for the Multitool Encyclopedia too
I'm thinking of using TikiWiki's PluginInclude capability to build a pair of master page of all the new tables and then pull in the right table for each tool or knife.Has that been tried elsewhere in the Wiki with success or failure?
Whoa, respect Quote from: sLaughterMed on August 23, 2016, 04:51:15 PMYou know, we need editors for the Multitool Encyclopedia too What kind of work is needed, exactly?
I have a couple of suggestions on the tables.<SNIP>
Agreed, looks excellent. And having worked with and created a few fancytables on the wiki, I know how tricky they can be. As for the vertical text for the tools, might I suggest making it ALL CAPS? It is much more readable, at least to my eyes, less adjustment. For instance:FlashlightvrsFLASHLIGHT
I think that's very illuminating . I'll put it in the next round of work.
EDIT2: ...it would be good to group by layer then back then scale tools too. I have a spready that does this let me know if you want me to send it to you for a quick gander
This maybe a stupid question but has anyone thought about doing a partnership with a company that edit hardcover books to print the content of the wiki on a yearly basis for instance? I would buy it and this could be a way to support this forum and the wiki contributors while having good info from SAK specialists. I know there are companies which do that for blogs for instance, and even for your Facebook publications. I believe they take a small fee but maybe a poll would give an idea of the number of people willing to buy such a great encyclopediaAnyway just a thought </Gee via Tapatalk>

I have a spready that does this let me know if you want me to send it to you for a quick ganderI initially read this to mean you have a chart of which layer each tool is in, so we could put L1 to indicate the blades are in the first layer, then L2 for scissors and L3 for openers on a Climber for example. I think could be handy for anyone who wanted to custom build discontinued items, or build Franken-knives while using the original orders on similar knives to potentially avoid "hiding" nail-nicks, etc. And SOOOO OCD - what's not to like .Or did you just mean a simple list of whether each tool is layer / scale / back? If so then I think we have that covered now (Phillis and fine screwdriver being a bit special because they appear in multiple places...), but let me know if you think the grouping / ordering should be changed.
And there is one more model that could go in the 6 layer table - It is a Handyman variation - Which the Wiki says is a SABI version, but I think could be an older version - So it could be known as Handyman (old) - Anyway the Fish Scaler replaces the pliers.I could even try this myself - I think adding a row would be easy enough!! Moving column around - No way!!!
As for my changesI have updated the Cybertool headings to mention S,M,L (thereby messing up the links in the first para) - Can any body help - I think it does not like the brackets in the headings I tried a slash too this also did not work
<h2 class="showhide_heading" id="CyberTool_29_S_">CyberTool 29 (S)</h2>
[#Cybertool_29_S_|Cybertool 29 (S)],
Might I suggest adding an index somewhere at the beginning of the page that explains the abbreviations used? Or did I miss it? I understand that L means the tool is found as inside the SAK, aka a layered tool, S stands for scale tool, B stands for back layer tool, but the occasional browser of SAKwiki might not know that. Just a thought
I'll address the sakselektor question when I'm a bit more awake.

Moving column around - No way!!!Lots of good ideas in there that I'll think about.Be careful with small edits to the tables since a bulk update (more will be coming to fix the ~hs~, etc...) of the tables will trample on any local edit there, so if knives are missing then adding them to the Wiki pages is the way to go ……….
