You have access to edit Packs now ;)
Tried to Set up a Pack Main purpose to see what's involved with ultimate goal of automatically creating an profile in Mod Organizer using core and pack system
I am not looking at auto downloading as am aware of issues Nexus has but am looking at using Mod Organizers ability to open correct Nexus Mod Pages in consecutive tabs to enable a speedy download and whether other Data could be automatically imported much like Nexus page info is already
All just Ideas and speculation for now need permission to edit packs to start assessing feasability of ideas
Also Old STEP was restricted to Nexus Mods with the odd special case like SkSE will this be the same for packs and I don't mean Steam Workshop but sites without silly restrictions ModDB for instance certain authors don't use Nexus
You can point to any mod viua any link outside of Nexus. Just create the mod page and add the custom external link using the form. Be sure to name the mod according to its official name (unless it is long or wordy, then use something shorter to keep nice URLs)

Not sure what this means, but it all looks fine to me.
It looks like some of the stuff from my mod tables has duplicated into smile's weather wiki? i'm not sure what's going on there. (will remove it)
Once you have your Pack ready for play or testing, be sure to create a [ Pack ] thread

We will make it pretty once we have the mechanics working correctly.
You mentioned css classes, is it possible to use the classes you've set up on pack pages? if so would it be possible to see them? Yeah, I noticed just now after figuring out how to add mods that I didn't utilise any of the set up really and did an unecessary amount of copy-pasting table code lol.
Please do not play with any of the templates on the wiki. Many are hooked into Semantic Mediawiki, so if you are not familiar with this coding, then leave it to us (or better yet, learn how to code SMW, we could use the help! ... Google Semantic Mediawiki.). We also define styles using CSS classes, and we are not at all concerned with look at this time... only functionality. If you use the built-in mod table tools and allow the structure to work as intended, it should do just fine. We can improve the interface once we get the needed feedback.
I've realised that what's causing the issue is that if you edit the mod list like you would on wikipedia any text i put there is global. Is there any way to make this private because with some basic table structure it looks quite good I feel. I tried to sort of keep the same style as the main STEP guide to make it more easily understood after installing STEP.
You should be able to delete redirect pages by clicking on the redirect link on the final page and using Page Tools > Delete after you get to the redirect page.
cool, thanks. everything seems to be working and I've been playing around with page but i've moved it to rename it twice and have since realised I've left redirects. Just so you're aware if you want to remove them (i think you should) Immersive Survival is the current name, previously Immersive Hunter Surivival and originally Realistic Survival.
you need to log onto the wiki.
On the wiki where my user name was it is now displaying my ip however on the forums it shows my account correctly
Valiant effort out there, but you are circumventing the purpose and all of the mechanics. Please save all of your relevant text and I will remove the current table so that it can be rebuilt using the intended mechanics. We can work on the styling later ... this is in alpha remember ;)
I'll check back after you have finished copying all of the relevant content you need (i.e. notes in the table and the mod list and order).
I have a bit of feedback if you're interested.
how to add mods wasn't really clear, to me at least. it says add modlist on the page itself (after creating a modlist in the Pack Form settings) which made me think it was going to give me the same options rather than giving me options for text before and after as well as the add mod button.
I'm not sure if there's another way to do this but the only way i can get to the settings is loading the page through the form for creating pack pages. am I missing something or is this the only way intended to reach these settings.
perhaps adding a third column to the mod template or even better a user defined amount could be very useful? it makes it a lot easier to visually link certain bits of info to certain mods. just a thought.
I know it's all in alpha but the menus and options are just a little clunky and less than user friendly.
i'd also like to just thank you guys for step in general, I've used it for a while now and love how easy and straightforward (albeit time consuming) you make it to mod skyrim to hell. made an account specifically to mess with the pack thing as it felt like a good way to try and give something back :) keep up the good work.
To create a Pack:
- Navigate to Form:Pack
- Enter in a logical name for the pack and click [Create or Edit] (please do not include the work "Pack" or "STEP" in the name)
- The Pack Form is presented - Please carefully read the instructions on the form!
- Save the Pack when finished editing (edit the Pack at any time by repeating these steps)
- All Packs are added to Category:Packs once created

NEVER edit templates... that affects every single Pack page. Use only the Forms to make your edits (Page Tools > Edit With form). I will take a look.
Ok I just edited the wrong template and then it said 'test test test' on every pack page's pre-installation setup section... Ugh I have some things to learn about editing wiki stuff :P
(I removed the 'test test test' again)
EDIT: Please tell me how you arrived at the template page ... I want to prevent users from easily arriving at these pages.
