How To Use IconsEdit

Use a uploaded iconEdit

To use an icon in an Icon in an item, equipment, or other type of page you should first find the correct icon for the image. A description of the Icon organization and categorization is in the next section of this page. If you are unable to find the Icon after searching you can simply upload a version of the Icon you want to use. Directions on the proper way to upload an Icon can be found in the How To Upload An Icon section of this page.

Once you have found or uploaded the correct Icon, you simply need to copy files name. For example, if you wanted to use this icon: File:Icon bench 01 (Treasured).png in an item template, you would simply copy the Icon bench 01 (Treasured).png part of the files page name and insert that into the page template.

Use a census iconEdit

Census is database hosted by daybreak that "knows" every item, every toon and every adjustment you made. websites like u.eq2wire.com use the data from census to build the wedsite.
census also knows every icon that is used ingame as well, the templates use a parameter called "iconnum" to link to the corresponding icon on census.
For example: Advanced Tailor Studies 01 the icons that are displayed are from census.

Example Item TemplateEdit


Below is the top portion of the Item Information Template. The way you would insert the Icon into the template is to put the File's page name minus the "File:" into the icon =| template parementer. An example is below.

{{ItemInformation|
iname =| <!-- filename of examine window (OPTIONAL) only if needed -->
idesc =|
type =|
subtype =|
aaexp =|
altname =|
icon =Icon bench 01 (Treasured).png|
...template truncated

Example Equipment TemplateEdit


Below is the top portion of the Equipment Information Template. The top portions of this template looks similar to the Item template and the usage of the Icon's page name remains the same. Simple insert the Icons page name minus the "File:" into the icon =| template parementer. An example is below.

{{EquipInformation|
iname = | <!-- filename of examine window (OPTIONAL) only if needed -->
idesc = |
iname2 = | <!-- image of when worn/equipped (OPTIONAL) -->
idesc2 = |
icon = Icon bench 01 (Treasured).png| <!-- if used, overrides wtype_dtype_slot.jpg -->
...template truncated
