Weirdly you have to add this to the category page:

Code: Select all
{{Year}}
[[Category:Pieces by year]]


That makes it appear in the list.

Year 2014 under Category:Pieces by year is not up
I couldn't see either of the box sets in the print section, so I wasn't sure if you got the one below in as well

50 Shades Of Black Set 14 Fairey - Print Set

Imag

Sets are located in the set category, not the print category (Americana isn't in the print section either), once I add all the individual prints from each set then those will appear in the prints section.

As far as the prints by year goes, the 2014 category exists:
http://thegiant.org/wiki/index.php?title=Category:2014
And i was able to add it to this page:
http://thegiant.org/wiki/index.php/Year

But I have no idea how to add it to this page because it can't be done by editing the page:
http://thegiant.org/wiki/index.php/Cate ... ts_by_year

I'll try to add the 7" print set when I get a chance.

On the page, you can hit the "move" tab to change the name. It will add a redirect from the name it is moved from too. So both will show up in search.

Let me know if you dont see a move button.

the Ai Wei Wei print is called "Cost Of Expression" (that's how it was mentioned on obey but i see on the sale page it says "Ai Weiwei: Cost of Expression" but i don't see how to change the title after it's been added) and it's up (http://thegiant.org/wiki/index.php/Cost_of_Expression)… are far as the search by year goes, there is a category for 2014 (http://thegiant.org/wiki/index.php/Category:2014) but i don't see how to add the link to the "search by year" page. it might have to be added in the template.

Looks like you found out how to add to a set: http://thegiant.org/wiki/index.php/Powe ... _Print_Set

It's totally weird way of doing it - But it's a wiki, so you make do.

Don't think the wiki allows you to add sets to your collection. Americana doesn't have an add to collection button either. This is something Adam would have to look into if it's possible to do.

Adam,

What fattyramone was saying is that there's no "add to collection" button for anything in the sets category like there is in the prints or fine art category. The only way for someone to add something in the sets category to their collection is to add each individual print in the set, one by one, to their collection. I'm guessing the "add to collection" button on the sets category was just missed when you added the user collection functionality. My guess is that it's part of the template for the category which is probably locked.

This button is missing for anything in the sets category:
Imag
Example page: http://thegiant.org/wiki/index.php/Americana_Print_Set

Also, is there anyway I can add the print sets category to the navigation box in the left hand column (under main menu, prints and fine art)?

It shows it CAN be done , but I think we still need a little semi-official input now and again to keep up its momentum and keep us chattering

Two days does not a summer make. :D

As weird as it is... the sidebar is also a wikipage. Are you able to edit this?

Try it out... Good luck! http://thegiant.org/wiki/index.php/Americana_Print_Set
I just changed the print set template to have the proper formatting for javascript to pick up on it that it could add it to the gallery.

http://thegiant.org/wiki/index.php/MediaWiki:Sidebar

Print Sets has been added to the sidebar menu: http://thegiant.org/wiki/index.php/Category:Print_Sets

also added these categories to the side bar:
Toys has also been added to the sidebar menu: http://thegiant.org/wiki/index.php/Category:Toys
Skateboards has also been added to the sidebar menu: http://thegiant.org/wiki/index.php/Category:Skateboards
Merchandise has also been added to the sidebar menu: http://thegiant.org/wiki/index.php/Category:Merchandise
Publications has also been added to the sidebar menu: http://thegiant.org/wiki/index.php/Cate ... blications
Press has also been added to the sidebar menu: http://thegiant.org/wiki/index.php/Category:Press

i also reorganized the wiki sidebar menu a little. i split the menu into two separate menus, one for obey related categories (prints, fine art, etc) and the second menu for wiki related links (recent images, donations, etc). This is how it looks now:
Imag

Let me know if that's ok with everyone.

if there are any other current categories that anyone would like to see in the main navigation box, please let me know.

great to see the board buzzing.

i think the diamond dust and gold foil fine art print sets issued through paul stolper gallery need to be added. also as a suggestion, i think it would be nice to be able to browse fine art wiki by show.

thanks to all who are getting this going.

in regards to the MOI thread; if we are lucky enough to get theomethod to start being more regular in the updates here, i think it would be nice to show a bit more thanks and respect than he was getting earlier (read: drop the general sense of entitlement.) i remember reading some of our member comments and just cringing.

cheers all!

Gold foil print set and individual prints were added yesterday:

I just have to add the individual print links to the set page

Adam,

The only other glaring thing that's missing from the wiki is a sticker category. This is something that will probably need a new template with maybe just the image, title (or best guess if there's no known title), year, dimensions and additional info... Maybe we can allow people to add stickers to their "collection" as well.

EDIT: i see that there actually is a sticker template but doesn't look like there's a sticker category.

You create a category just by associating things to it - Once there is something added, it automatically appears. You can then edit the page "Category:XXXXXX" and add text if you want.

I couldn't find any of these gold Blk Sabbath in any of the databases so here is one for ours.
I took a pic of both so you could see that it's not a lighting thing, but there is a gold version of this print.

OH MY GOODNESS! this is so awesome! after moving last summer, it's just been so hard for me to get back into the habit of doing anything forum- or wiki-related, and the updates just kept piling up... so, i am very grateful that you've taken it on! now i can feel free of the pressure to update, haha! (also, sorry for dropping the ball, guys - in my defense, as john can attest, it's a lot of work.)

as for the sticker template, we created that back in 2010, at the request of halopigg. i found a PM exchange between the two of us, and i promised him i'd make him a tutorial for how to update the wiki, but i don't think i ever did - i don't see anything on my computer. but from what i can tell, the idea was to have a main entry for each style of sticker, using the same name as the related print, if applicable (e.g. Obedience Problems Sticker), post the common sticker image for the main image, and then post variants of that sticker within the same article, which will show up as smaller images. however, since we never actually created any sticker entries, it's not too late to change this method.

if you ever have any questions about how to do something on the wiki, just let me know! i know adam already answered a few of them. one quick note about changing the title for an entry - after you move the page, you can go in and delete the original/wrong one (it will still exist, as a redirect to the new/correct one), if you want.
