You can add your country to the navbox by going to http://wiki.opengeofiction.net/wiki/index.php/Template:Navbox_Countries_of_the_World and adding your country in alphabetical order, using the country's short name enclosed in [[brackets]] to link to the relevant article. When editing, always use the "Show Preview" button to check for mistakes first before selecting "Save page."

Remember to add this navbox to your country page by pasting {{Navbox Countries of the World}} at the bottom of your country page text. This navbox should not be used on other pages, only country pages.

Go to http://wiki.opengeofiction.net/wiki/index.php/Template:Navbox_Countries_of_the_World_by_Continent to add your country and do the same as the top stated, but put your country in the correct continent. Add it in your country wiki
{{Navbox Countries of the World by Continent|collapsed}}

You do not have to include both in your country's wiki. Choose the one that you prefer.

Adding your country to lists

There are several lists in the Lists Portal, and they are a great way to learn about different countries in the OGF world. Please add your country so we can discover more about it!

Galleries

First there are galleries for flags and coats of arms. You can add your flags and coats of arms by clicking the edit button, scrolling down to the appropriate letter of the alphabet, and pasting:

File:MyCountryFlag.png|<center>Flag of [[MyCountryName]] ← replacing "File:MyCountryFlag.png" with the file name of the flag image you uploaded to your country page, and replacing "MyCountryName" with the short name of your country.

Adding to other galleries should work the same way. Always use the "Show Preview" button to check for mistakes first before selecting "Save page."

Lists

To add to lists, be sure to create a country flag template first so you can include a little flag next to your country name.

The first place you'll want to add your country is the Countries and Cities Portal. Click the Edit button near the top of the page, scroll down to the appropriate continent, and add your country in the same format as the others listed, being sure to use {{curly brackets}} to use the flag template you created and make the little flag show up next to your country name. Remember to use the short name of your country, for example "Xuwuxwistan" not "Federal Republic of Xuwuxwistan." Always use the "Show Preview" button to check for mistakes first before selecting "Save page."

After that, you'll want to add your country to the relevant continent page, in the same style as the other countries listed there.

Lists that are tables

Most of the other lists use tables, which are more complex. If you click the Edit button on a page with a table, you can see that each table is made up of groupings, and each grouping is a row of the table. For example, this:

Table-display.png

is encoded as this:

Table-code.png

The first grouping (with the ! exclamation marks) is the header row, and then each grouping beneath is a row of the table. The easiest way to add to this type of list is to simply copy another country's row, paste it in the appropriate position for your country, and then change that country's information to your country's information. For example, to add Gobrassanya to this list, we simply scroll down to Gobrassanya's position in the alphabet (after Galicia), copy the Galicia grouping, paste it directly below, and then change the pasted copy from Galicia's information to Gobrassanya's information:


Selecting the Galicia grouping, then copy Pasted beneath Galicia Change pasted copy from Galicia's information to Gobrassanya's information
Selecting the Galicia grouping, then copy Pasted beneath Galicia Change pasted copy from Galicia's
information to Gobrassanya's information

So, not as hard as it seems. Don't forget to use the "Show Preview" button to check for mistakes first before selecting "Save page."

Good luck and feel free to ask for help. Lists are a great, fast way to share information about your country and we'll be excited to learn more about it.
