This page is a guide: Guides are essays that cover a specific topic in detail, in order to aid players to better grasp the topic. Guides may help you gain a better understanding of the game, but they are often written by a single editor, and the wiki offers no guarantee of their validity. Guides can be useful, but keep in mind that they may have a subjective point of view, or describe a specific approach to a subject which may not be the only solution.
To view all the guides on the wiki, please visit Category:Guides.

Ahoy, and welcome to the Pirates Online Wiki Guide! This guide will hopefully improve your experience here and teach you a thing or two about the Wiki in general.

Your Account

Firstly, lets begin with your account. Don't have one? You can create an account by going to this page. You can even Sign Up with your Facebook Account!

Your account spans across all of Wikia, gives you more access to the Wiki and LESS advertisements. Remember to keep your account safe and NEVER share your password. Your account is expected to abide by the Pirates Online Wiki Policy at all times while editing the Wiki. Here are a few tips to follow while creating an account:

  • Your Username should NOT be the same as your Pirates Online Account.
  • Your Username should NOT contain any personal information.
  • Your Password should be at least 8 characters and use letters, numbers, and symbols.

When you create an account, you get your own personal Userpage, which you can customize any way you like. You can even add Userboxes to show off your achievements.

NOTE:

  • Administrators will NEVER ask for your password.
  • No matter what any user tells you, DO NOT give them your account information. If a user is asking for this info, please contact an Active Administrator immediately.

Editing Basics

Editing is an important part to any wiki. In this section I will cover the basics, but for more information, you can take a look at the various Help Pages. Help:Editing has a lot of useful information for editing, and additional links at the bottom of the page for advanced editing.

Editing a page is simple as clicking the "Edit" button found on every page. There, the Visual editor will appear, though I recommend using the Source editor. You can change between the editors by clicking their respective tab found just above the editing window. Some pages contain complex coding, and can only be edited in Source mode.

Basic text Formatting: Italicizing/Bolding Text/Starting New Paragraphs/Lines
What it looks like What you type
You can emphasize text by putting two

apostrophes on each side. Three apostrophes will emphasize it strongly. Five apostrophes is even stronger.

You can ''emphasize text'' by putting two
apostrophes on each side. Three apostrophes
will emphasize it '''strongly'''. Five
apostrophes is '''''even stronger'''''.
A single new line

has no effect on the layout.


But an empty line starts a new paragraph.

You can break lines
without starting a new paragraph.
Please use this sparingly.

Organizing your Writing: Creating Sections/ Subsections and Lists/Indenting Lines
What it looks like What you type

Section headings

Headings organize your writing into sections. The Wiki software can automatically generate a table of contents from them.

Subsection

Using more equals signs creates a subsection.

A smaller subsection

Don't skip levels, like from two to four equals signs. Start with two equals signs; don't use single equals signs.

  • Unordered lists are easy to do:
    • Start every line with a star.
      • More stars indicate a deeper level.
  • A new line
  • in a list

marks the end of the list.

  • Of course you can start again.
* ''Unordered lists'' are easy to do:
** Start every line with a star.
*** More stars indicate a deeper level.
*A new line
*in a list  
marks the end of the list.
*Of course you can start again.
  1. Numbered lists are also good:
    1. Very organized
    2. Easy to follow

A new line marks the end of the list.

  1. New numbering starts with 1.
# Numbered lists are also good:
## Very organized
## Easy to follow
A newline marks the end of the list.
#New numbering starts with 1.
  • You can even do mixed lists
    1. and nest them
      • or break lines
        in lists.
* You can even do mixed lists
*# and nest them
*#* or break lines<br>in lists.
Another kind of list is a definition list:; word: definition of the word; longer phrase: phrase defined
Another kind of list is a '''definition list''':
; word : definition of the word
; longer phrase 
: phrase defined
A colon indents a line or paragraph.
Two colons indent it even further.

A newline after that starts a new paragraph.

:A colon indents a line or paragraph.
::Two colons indent it even further.
A new line after that starts a new paragraph.
You can make horizontal dividing lines

to separate text.




But you should usually use sections instead, so that they go in the table of contents.

Links and URLs/Redirecting Pages
What it looks like What you type
Here's a link to a page named Jack Sparrow.

You can put formatting around a link. Example: Jack Sparrow.

The first letter will automatically be capitalized, so jack Sparrow goes to the same place as Jack Sparrow. Capitalization matters after the first letter.

Joshua Coalskull is a page that doesn't exist yet. You can create a red linked page by clicking on the link.

Here's a link to a page named [[Jack Sparrow]].

You can put formatting around a link.
Example: ''[[Jack Sparrow]]''.

The ''first letter'' will automatically be capitalized,
so [[jack Sparrow]] goes to the same place 
as [[Jack Sparrow]]. '''Capitalization matters 
after the first letter.'''

[[Joshua Coalskull]] is a page that doesn't exist yet. 
You can create a red linked page by clicking on the link.
You can make an external link just by typing a URL:

https://piratesforums.co/

You can give it a title: Pirates Forums

Or leave the title blank: [1]

https://piratesforums.co/

You can give it a title:
[https://piratesforums.co/ Pirates Forums]

Redirect one article title to another by placing a directive like the one shown to the right on the first line of the article (such as at a page titled "Pirates of the Caribbean Online").
 #REDIRECT [[Pirates of the Caribbean Online]]
