The site is
organized as a simple content management system (CMS) with restricted
Canon Fodder is not a Wikipedia! Due to its nature we have to carefully select who is allowed to post. Please contact us if you are interested in posting, and include a list with some ideas or some samples.
All edits can be done in a user-friendly WinWord-like
hypertext editor. The key to the site's structure is the hierarchy of
headings. There are four levels of headings:
In edit mode, you have to save every page to keep the changes before selecting a new one from the menu at the left!
- H1 is used for the categories of the site (like
Starships, Science & Technology, etc.). You should not use the
H1 format unless you think the site needs another category.
Every use of the H1
format automatically generates a new page right above the heading.
is used for the sub-categories (like Federation Starships, Alien
Starships). Sub-categories are not mandatory. Add sub-categories with
H2 if you think the page lists are going to be too long. Don't
use H2 for a page with an article, unless it is useful for this
article to be on the same level as a sub-category (in which case you
must use H2). Every use of the H2
format automatically generates
a new page right above the heading.
- H3 is used for
single articles (like "Why does the NX-01
look like the Akira?"). For each article use exactly one line formatted
with H3. Use H3 for any articles, regardless of the
existence of sub-categories. Every use of the H3 format
automatically generates a new page right above the heading.
is used for sub-headings on a page. Use sub-headings to improve
the legibility of a page. In other words, H4 does not create a new page.
|Important notice: Never copy your text from Winword or any other "advanced" text processor directly into this site's editor!!!|
text must not have the slightest formatting (like Winword or CSS) prior
to being used here, otherwise the layout and even the page breaks will
be completely destroyed and will have to be retrieved from a backup. In order to avoid that,
take the text from a plain text editor like Wordpad. Once it is in the database, all text
will be auto-formatted in accordance with CF standards.
