This page is a stub, help us to improve it by expanding this article according to Ryzom Wiki's formatting standards

If you have any questions or concerns, you must be able to understand each other and speak the same language. Small attempt to improve communication:p

Not logged

You don't have any wiki account, or you are not logged on the wiki (english wiki has URL address

Not logued, wiki top tool bar

Presentation of the space :

  • log in, Request an account -> wiki accounts related (for now, your wiki account is different fom your game one). Once logged in, you can also find all your writings as well as those you are monitoring (written by others).
About how create a wiki account, see Help:Why create an account?
  • logo (home) and search
  • surfing toolbar (with scrolling animation): Navigation, Ryzom Commons, Tools...
    • Notes the presence of "import a file in the 2nd menu, as well as at the bottom of the page.
    • and of recent modifications, in the 1st menu Navigation: major and minor modifications, page creations are indicated by an icon.
  • Page, Discussion, View source, History -> wiki main bar, linked to basic wiki functions :

When loged

Top tool bars when logued
  • in the top right corner, the little yellow Ryzom button sends to [1]
  • Your wiki profile (with possible yellow tabs below), Talk, Preferences, Watchlist (to track articles written by others), Contributions (regroups all your creations and modifications, sorted chronologically), Logout -> related to your wiki account.
(Ryzom, not wiki, they are 2 different accounts for now)
  • logo (home) and search -> see also search and find
  • surf drop-down menu [2]:
    Related to MediaWiki:Sidebar
    Navigation (recent changes below), Ryzom Commons (to import a file), Tools, Useful Links (bm and others) and Ryzom Wiki (the 5 languages each have their own wiki)
  • the tabs Discussion', Edit, History, Rename, Unwatch, purge [3]-> wiki main bar.
    • Page is what you see when you surf. 'View source text allows you to go and copy the code without the risk of modifying it (for example, to propose a translated version, or alternatively, for later discussion).
      • normally it's more of a role play, a homin that expresses itself.
      • You can thus start translating, while your account hasn't been validated yet, working in a notepad (and lose nothing in case of a network cut).
    • Discussion allows you to intervene on a page (make a remark, ask a question...) without modifying the content of the Page. It is like a notepad, linked to this Page. If you are not logged in (or waiting for your account), you can't intervene there either (it has been configured like that).
      • We'll see that it's a different namespace - see the search.
    • 'See source: you see the wiki code, you can copy it (and paste it into a notepad, e.g. to translate it).
    • History any simple surfer sees the history of this page, with date, wiki account names, and various commands.
      • This is one of the basic functions of wiki-machines: see at a glance who changed what, when, with a version comparison (diff) helper that makes it easy to undo various changes made.
      • This wiki is configured so that an anonymous surfer can't change anything. So your IP address can't be displayed there - only your wiki account name will be visible.
    • and underneath, possibly the wiki edit bar (if you clicked Edit)

wiki main bar

This bar appears when you edit a page.

Advanced open/hide a very handy secondary toolbar (Title, Format... arrays, and on right Search and replace)

Help avoids navigating to its "code snippets" (which are usually put in its Drafts or OCC Notes under your profile), because you can directly copy the examples there. I find the Links and Discussion parts (shows how to use indents) particularly useful.

Search and replace

Check that Advanced is deployed and it's to the far right.


Before placing an image on a page, it must have been uploaded there beforehand (it will actually be hosted in the Common - common for all wkis, URL in

Uploading an image

To search among images already hosted (images are stored in a wiki common to the 5 languages):

More on Writing Guide#Add an image and Images categories.

  • On the right of the Link icon, youll find an icon to add some image uploaded (on common).
  • If you have several images, you can use the "Picture gallery" (on the toolbar in edit mode of the wiki, the icon just to the right of "Insert"). This makes it easier to read/modify the wiki code, as it adds gallery tags; thus, each image will be on one line (in the wiki code), with a simple syntax: filename.jpg the "vertical bar" (AltGr+6) and a description :
