FANDOM


This page will help you understand how to properly use the Template:CardTable. The template has many parameters (sections for accepting inputs), some of which may be confusing to new editors. This page will break down what each one does and what kind of values each one can take.

Basic Knowledge

Cards can be created by clicking on the Create button on the main page. The possibilities of what your cards can be are endless. However, there are some values that need to be put in manually for certain kinds of cards.

G units

| type     = G

G guardians

| type     = G
| skill    = None
| critical = None

Order Cards

| cardtype = Order

Example of Accepted Values for Some Parameters

This section does not contain all possible parameters. Please see Template:CardTable/doc for more information.

image

This parameter takes an image file name as its value. It is the image you wish to have displayed on the page. Upload an image to this site and type in the file name of that image. For example, if you were to upload an image with "Find.jpg" as its file name, "Find.jpg" would be your desired value to put in this parameter.

If no value is put, the table will automatically generates an image of the back of a card and use it as the image of your card.

cardtype

This parameter takes a string value. It determines what kind of cards your card is, whether it is a unit, an order, or other.

"Unit" is the default value. Put in "Order" if you are creating an order card. It can take custom values.

type

This parameter takes a string value. It determines what type your card is. For example, if your card is a unit, it determines whether it is a normal unit, a trigger unit, a g unit, a token unit, or other. For more example, If your card is an order, it determines whether your card is a normal order, a blitz order, or other.

Its default value automatically adjusts itself. For example, if your card contains a trigger effect, the table will assume your card as a trigger unit. Otherwise, it will, for example, assume your card as a normal unit or a normal order respectively.

trig

This parameter takes a string value. It determines whether or not to display a trigger effect for your card. If you put in the name of an official trigger, it will display that trigger effects with an image included. For example, putting in "Draw" will make the table displays the icon of a draw trigger.

If a custom value is put, the table will display the value exactly as it is put in.

"None" is the default value when the parameter is left blank, which will display no trigger effect. By putting in any other value, your card will be displayed as a trigger unit.

nation

This parameter takes a string value. It determines the color in which the table displays and the name of a nation to be displayed.

If the table does not recognize your custom nation, or if the parameter is left blank, it will choose the color black.

You may add color for your nation by editing the Template:CardTable/color. Since it is a high-traffic page, please be mindful while editing.

If the clan parameter takes "Cray Elemental" as the input, it overrides the coloring part of this parameter, and the table becomes rainbow.

grade

This parameter takes a string value. It displays the value as the grade of your card. It can take custom values.

"None" is the default value when the parameter is left blank, which will completely delete the grade section from the table. However, if your card is a G unit, the default value becomes "4" instead.

skill

This parameter takes a string value. It determines the skill of your card.

The default value automatically adjusts itself according to the grade of your card. For example, if your card is a grade 1, it will have the boost skill.

If you put in "None" as the value, it will completely delete the skill section from the table.

critical

This parameter takes a string value. It displays the value as the critical value of your card.

If you put in "None" as the value, it will completely delete the critical section from the table.

set

This parameter takes a string value. It displays the value as the list of sets in which your card appears.

See Template:CardTable/set for how to add your sets into the table.

ability

This parameter takes a string value. It displays the ability (card text) of your card, if any.

[CONT](VC):This is an example string value to be used as an input.
[ACT](VC/RC):[Counter Blast (1)] This unit gets [Power]+1000 until end of turn.

The following shows how to make your gained abilities become red.

<span style="color: red;">[CONT]:This ability is red.</span>

illust

This parameter takes a string value. If you are using a custom image for your card, it will display the value as the name of the illustrator of the image used, and this parameter is mandatory to be filled in order to prevent you from potential copyright violations.

creator

This parameter takes a string value. It shows the value as the name of the creator of the card. You should put your FANDOM username in this parameter.

"Anonymous" is the default value.

Tips for Creating Cards

  • Make sure you are following the Established Standards when making a card.
  • When editing a card, the Source Editor is preferred over the Visual Editor. This can be accessed through the dropdown arrow next to the Edit button, if you have not adjusted your preference settings.
  • Delete any parameters you are not using if you prefer a clean look on your source code. Otherwise, leave those parameters blank in order to remind yourself about their existence.
    • Please do not fill in an unapplicable parameter with "None" unless you deliberately wish to delete that section from the table.
  • There are public templates and resources you can use. However, please make sure that you give appropriate credits to the original creator. See Category:Public for the list of those templates and resources.
  • If you still have no idea how to properly create a card, please feel free to contact an experienced editor to seek help.
  • Have fun!
