Have a question for you. Wikia is planning creating some cool content here to celebrated the launch of Resident Evil Retribution-- like a game-to film comparison, a retrospective of the movies, a zombie showdown, etc-- all in blogs on the wiki. Was wondering if we could create a portal in the right rail of the main page, similar in design to the 'Upcoming Release', which listed links to these fun blogs posts... Let me know your thoughts!
This sounds particularly interesting. We tried a game/film comparison page before, but I think it was removed a couple years back (too many entries saying, simply "this character is in the films, only"); a better-administrated version (in this case, a blog) would be feasible. I asked on Chat and there's no negative-feedback about it. One question, though - would it require extensive alteration of the main page through shifting different boxes or replace the current Blogs list for the time-being?
Cool, glad you're open to it...what I was thinking was just creating a box, same size as the Upcoming Release, that sits above it and has links to this content...this would push the right rail content down a bit....The other way to do it would be to simply highlight the blogs in the slider. Whichever you guys prefer.
I've just modified the Slider template to better illustrate the current set-up. I experimented with the template. We can modify the title text which appears on each gallery section, but we cannot modify the "linktext" description. Either we'd need another landscape Retribution image for the Slider or we can have the title link to the Retribution article, with the "read more..." linking to the informational blog portal.
