I'd like to rework how skill splits are displayed on the wiki. Currently, we're using separate pages for the PvP and/or WvW version, example Panic Strike, Panic Strike (WvW), Panic Strike (PvP). With the amount of overhead to update this skill, I'd like to keep all split information back on two pages: the skill/trait/effect page and the /history subpage.

The idea[edit]

  • If something that is displayed within the infobox differs between game modes, I only need to add the game mode that applies to the fact (example {{skill fact|burning|4|game mode=pve}}{{skill fact|burning|2|game mode=wvw pvp}}).
    • If I want to view (as a user, not as an editor) the WvW or PvP version of the skill/trait/effect, I only need to click on the button/link within the {{game mode version}} template at the top of the page.


Widget:Game mode buttons
This template supplies the necessary javascript/jquery functions to switch between game modes as well as creates the buttons that call said functions.
button1, button2, button3: buttons that will be created
scope: jquery selector to limit switching game modes to a specific area (i.e. swapping game modes on a /histoy subpage)
{{Game mode version}}
rework the template to accept one unnamed parameter that is set like |pve,wvw pvp or |pve,wvw,pvp. For each game mode version separated by comma, create a button/link to show the selected game mode version. This template calls the buttons widget.
Additionally, creates three variables "gmv-pve", "gmv-wvw" and "gmv-pvp" with the content being the css class to apply. These variables will be used by the infoboxes.
Two subpages will be added to this template:
{{Version history}}
This template now displays the current status: split / unsplit as well as the past status (if skill has been split and merged back together). If the skill is currently split/has been split in the past, includes a notice of the buttons above the infoboxes to select the desired game mode version of that update.
{{Skill fact}}
the skill fact needs to be wrapped in a div that has a pve, wvw or pvp class set if the game mode parameter is set.
{{Skill infobox}}, {{Trait infobox}}
If the non-split parameter is not set, the template checks for split parameters with naming convention <<param>>-<<gamemode>>. The result is wrapped in a div with classes gamemode and the value from one of the variables set.
Properties for wvw and pvp versions will be created as a subobject. Thanks to Relyk for the suggestion.
{{Skill infobox/historical}}, {{Trait infobox/historical}}
In addition to the above changes, these templates includes the buttons widget with the scope parameter set to the update date. In order to get the correct buttons, the logic to call the widget from the game mode version template will be implemented here as well (or maybe a subtemplate, since both skill and trait infoboxes will use it).
{{recharge/split}}, {{energy/split}}, {{upkeep/split}}, {{initiative/split}}
Since the infobox templates gain quite a bit of logic in order to support switching game modes, some of the logic is moved to the templates that will be called.
The subpage template includes the parent page for each game mode with the correct value.
