    how to create a Lorebook Kinship page!

    I noticed the other day the devs have done away with the Kinship list post (which was good because it was over a year old!), but have very poor instructions on how to create a Lorebook post of your own.

    I am no programmer, but found a good kinship lorebook layout that works for Blood Lines needs. If you want to use it, here is an easy to follow guide on how to create your own.

    Go to the lorebook. Search for Kinship:your kinships name. Click on "create this page." You can then cut and paste the below template, and edit it for however you want.

    Just a few small things about it. You can edit the PD_5.gif part for 1-5 on however you feel your kin fits on that scale. The .jpgs are already in the system, you just have to put the number in there. As for Category Links, you can edit these however you like for any known categories.

    On the picture, this part gets a bit tricky... Find a picture you want (you need this to be small, like a thumbnail) and go to the lorebook, click "Upload file" in the far bottom left corner. You then find the picture on your hard drive, name it (has to be a unique name!) and upload it to the Lorebook. Remember that name, and put it in the template below where needed.

    You can copy and paste the "officers" part as many times as you like to add more officers, I only have one below to save space. something like this
    |align="center"| ''officer name1'' ||align="center"|officer class
    |-
    |align="center"| ''officer name2'' ||align="center"|officer class
    |-


    After you edit something, just preview to make sure it looks good , and you should be good to go.

    Copy and paste the template, then edit as needed for everything below this line.

    {{NewKinship
    |kinship = add kin name here
    |server = Firefoot
    |founder = add founders here
    |founded = add founded date here

    Re: how to create a Lorebook Kinship page!

    When you do the initial search, it should be in the format of Kinship:<Your Kin name>

    Ie... Kinship:Blood_Line
    [CENTER][SIZE="1"][COLOR="SlateGray"]
    High Warden Demospata
    95 Champion
    Ramble On - Elendilmir
    [/color][/size][/center]

    Updated with that info, thanks for the help!

    Like I said, I am no programmer, but edited what others have done by trial and error until I found what works for me, then realized there was no easy to follow guide on how to do it.

    I would like to also credit the kinshp Servants of Mithrandir for the template to get me started.

    This thread was very helpful. I have added my kinship page into the lorebook. Hooray, and thank you very much!

    Re: how to create a Lorebook Kinship page!

    I have a kinship that when I search for it says,
    "ERROR The page you were looking for was not found."

    I could find no option to create that page in the lorebook. Do you have to submit a request somewhere to get started? I'm wondering if it isn't available to me because my kinship name has an apostrophe in it or some similar bug.

    Note: the kinship name is Victoria's Secret (understand that may be part of the problem - if so, happy to rename it)

    I have no idea Victorias, this thread is almost 3 years old now. I hope you found the info you were looking for.

    Hi,

    I don't like opening an old thread, but I'd like to know if there are any solutions to the classic "The blog you have requested is not installed properly. Please contact the system administrator." -error that many pages get.

    I have never tried to set up a new blog for my kinship before, and I've submitted 2 tickets over a month ago that didn't get answered. I then found this thread and tried to follow the instructions, but I can't find a button/link to create a new page.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks in advance
