Hey, my wife and I made some significant edits to the Attacks page. I'd very much appreciate your assessment. I'm glad I'm a programmer, because it really helped me in formatting, for example, the AttackFeatDetail Template.

PS - Is it okay for me to clear out the User talk: Nihimon page once the conversation's past its prime?

PPS - Is there a way to rename files? Is there a way to include partial path names? I'm thinking that "Armor" as a global file name is a little too generic...

Final question(s) for the night: Is there any way to have the detail entries read from a web service or database? Do y'all host a database I can populate? Can I set it up to read from the database hosted by The Seventh Veil? Copy-and-paste works, but it's going to be a huge pain to make bulk edits in the future.

I lied. If you look at what I did with the Passive Feats, you'll see I have a single entry with summary information that you can click to get to the detail page that lists the effects for each level. My wife is being awesome and doing the copy-and-paste for all the detail entries, but I'm wondering if there's some way I can easily access the header record so that I can do something kind of like what I did for the Attack Feat detail entries.

Okay, I'm a horrible liar :) Is there a way to script the creation of files? -- This unsigned post was made by Nihimon. Please sign all posts with ~~~~.
