Stylizing pages
« Topic Start: April 09, 2011, 12:32:12 AM »
You guys remember those graphics used for the pages of the books found in The Dream? Where can I get those graphics, and how would I set that as the background for a wiki page? If I can't do it that way, would I have to enter my text onto the image, and then upload the image to the wiki, and set that image as the only content on the page?

Its doable, but remember that using background images can be very painful for people on slower internet connections.

For blind people, as well as future editing of the page, it would be best to post text as text.

Ok...Let me rephrase then.

If I wanted to set up a nice graphical "page", to represent a page out of a really old book, where, if anywhere can I find the background graphics for the pages used in The Dream? I'm just asking for the graphics here at this point, please leave the rest of the mini-project for me to consider on my own.

I reckon you'd have to upload the scroll with the writing you wanted already on it. To fill out the background behind that for atmosphere or to make it look better, the Assassins pages look a good example/tutorial of how to make it work.

The assassins page would appear to have all its text entered via the normal wiki editing box. I would recommend that any text be entered into the wiki rather then be part of the image. That way it is available for all the things normal page text is, search, semantic data etc.
