How To Edit Pinata Pages

This is a short guide on how to edit pinata species pages on this wiki.


These are the templates that are required for each page. PinataHead, PinataBox, and Tabs. There's a certain way to put them together, so I'll explain it briefly.

First, take the Tabs code:

 {{Tabs
 |labels=VP: Original::Pocket Paradise::Trouble In Paradise
 |bgcolor=6699FF
 |bordercolor=0065cb
 |height=1100px
 |text1=
 |text2=
 |text3=
 }}

The bgcolor, bordercolor, and height DO NOT need to be changed. They should be the same for every page. Also note that text1 is the content for the VP: Original tab, text2 is the content for the Pocket Paradise tab, and text3 is the content for the Trouble In Paradise tab.

Next, take the PinataHead code:

 {{PinataHead
 |text = Pinata Flavor Text
 |level = LEVEL
 |bv = BASE VALUE
 }}

Change the Pinata Flavor text to the description of the pinata in the game. (If you don't have access to it, then leave it blank.) Change the Level to the pinata's in-game level, and the base value to the pinata's selling value, in game.

Next, take this code and paste it after text1, text2, and text3.

The code on your page should look like this:

 {{Tabs
 |labels=VP: Original::Pocket Paradise::Trouble In Paradise
 |bgcolor=6699FF
 |bordercolor=0065cb
 |height=1100px
 |text1= {{PinataHead
         |text = Pinata Flavor Text
         |level = LEVEL
         |bv = BASE VALUE
         }}

 |text2={{PinataHead
         |text = Pinata Flavor Text
         |level = LEVEL
         |bv = BASE VALUE
         }}

 |text3={{PinataHead
         |text = Pinata Flavor Text
         |level = LEVEL
         |bv = BASE VALUE
         }}
 }}

Next, take the PinataBox code and add it after every PinataHead template:

 {{PinataBox
 |type=appear
 |text=APPEAR REQUIREMENTS
 }}

 {{PinataBox
 |type=visit
 |text=VISIT REQUIREMENTS
 }}

 {{PinataBox
 |type=resident
 |text=RESIDENT REQUIREMENTS
 }}

 {{PinataBox
 |type=romance
 |text=ROMANCE REQUIREMENT 1 <br/> ROMANCE REQUIREMENT 2 <br/> Have a PINATA TYPE house in the Garden.
 }}

 {{PinataBox
 |type=variant
 |text=FOOD - COLOR Variant <br/> FOOD - COLOR Variant <br/> FOOD - COLOR Variant
 }}

 {{PinataBox
 |type=house
 |text=The PINATA house costs COST chocolate coins.
 }}

 (TIP ONLY)
 {{PinataBox
 |type=trick
 |text=Feed it FOOD to have it perform Trick 1. <br/> Feed it FOOD to have it perform Trick 2.
 }}

Remove the (TIP ONLY) heading, and be sure that the |type=trick box ONLY gets added to text3 (Trouble In Paradise). Pinata's can't do tricks in any other games.


So now, your code should look like this complicated mess:

 {{Tabs
 |labels=VP: Original::Pocket Paradise::Trouble In Paradise
 |bgcolor=6699FF
 |bordercolor=0065cb
 |height=1100px
 |text1= {{PinataHead
         |text = Pinata Flavor Text
         |level = LEVEL
         |bv = BASE VALUE
         }}
  {{PinataBox
  |type=appear
  |text=APPEAR REQUIREMENTS
  }}

  {{PinataBox
  |type=visit
  |text=VISIT REQUIREMENTS
  }}

  {{PinataBox
  |type=resident
  |text=RESIDENT REQUIREMENTS
  }}

  {{PinataBox
  |type=romance
  |text=ROMANCE REQUIREMENT 1 <br/> ROMANCE REQUIREMENT 2 <br/> Have a PINATA TYPE house in the Garden.
  }}

  {{PinataBox
  |type=variant
  |text=FOOD - COLOR Variant <br/> FOOD - COLOR Variant <br/> FOOD - COLOR Variant
  }}

  {{PinataBox
  |type=house
  |text=The PINATA house costs COST chocolate coins.
  }}

 |text2={{PinataHead
         |text = Pinata Flavor Text
         |level = LEVEL
         |bv = BASE VALUE
         }}

  {{PinataBox
  |type=appear
  |text=APPEAR REQUIREMENTS
  }}

  {{PinataBox
  |type=visit
  |text=VISIT REQUIREMENTS
  }}

  {{PinataBox
  |type=resident
  |text=RESIDENT REQUIREMENTS
  }}

  {{PinataBox
  |type=romance
  |text=ROMANCE REQUIREMENT 1 <br/> ROMANCE REQUIREMENT 2 <br/> Have a PINATA TYPE house in the Garden.
  }}

  {{PinataBox
  |type=variant
  |text=FOOD - COLOR Variant <br/> FOOD - COLOR Variant <br/> FOOD - COLOR Variant
  }}

  {{PinataBox
  |type=house
  |text=The PINATA house costs COST chocolate coins.
  }}


 |text3={{PinataHead
         |text = Pinata Flavor Text
         |level = LEVEL
         |bv = BASE VALUE
         }}

  {{PinataBox
  |type=appear
  |text=APPEAR REQUIREMENTS
  }}

  {{PinataBox
  |type=visit
  |text=VISIT REQUIREMENTS
  }}

  {{PinataBox
  |type=resident
  |text=RESIDENT REQUIREMENTS
  }}

  {{PinataBox
  |type=romance
  |text=ROMANCE REQUIREMENT 1 <br/> ROMANCE REQUIREMENT 2 <br/> Have a PINATA TYPE house in the Garden.
  }}

  {{PinataBox
  |type=variant
  |text=FOOD - COLOR Variant <br/> FOOD - COLOR Variant <br/> FOOD - COLOR Variant
  }}

  {{PinataBox
  |type=house
  |text=The PINATA house costs COST chocolate coins.
  }}

  {{PinataBox
  |type=trick
  |text=Feed it FOOD to have it perform Trick 1. <br/> Feed it FOOD to have it perform Trick 2.
  }}

 }}

Make sure you fill in the required information for each section. Some even have most of the writing done for you, so all you need to fill in is a price/food.

Now that you know how the pages are set up, you can take the last section of code and use that to form your pinata species pages. A full list of them can be found here.


Happy editing!
