Symon/blog/Enhanced AoA Award graphic

From EastKingdomWiki

< User:Symon‎ | blog

Today I'd like to share a fun little tip.

Many of us have added thumbnails of our awards to our populace pages. And for many of us, that includes an Award of Arms.

You may already know that putting {{AoA}} on your populace page automatically adds a thumbnail and a link to https://wiki.eastkingdom.org/index.php?title=Award_of_Arms. This is the power of templates I've discussed in the past. Doing so puts in a blank device graphic.

Here's where the fun comes in. If you've uploaded an image of your arms, then instead of {{AoA}} you can put {{AoA|file=yourfilenamehere}}. Then instead of the standard blank device graphic, it'll put -your arms- in, while keeping the link to the Award of Arms page and all other elements brought in with the template.

Enjoy!
