Hi, I'm new to this site, so I need help with editing the Conquest pages. When I do it it never works! Can give someone give me a template for the List of Conquests page? Thanks! :D —Preceding unsigned comment added by Peachboy105 (talkcontribs) 20:32, 17 December 2014

A few tips in general:
  • Don't forget }} at the end of templates and |} at the end of tables.
  • Use the "show preview" button to proofread your edit to make sure it worked as you intended.
  • Sign your talk page or forum posts with four tildes, like so: ~~~~

Hey again, sorry for not replying before I didn't know how to the first time I came here.So I tried to put the new conquest info in the conquest page, but after I press the show preview button it gives me this |rowspan=3|Holiday Hattack |rowspan=3|December 22nd, 2014 — December 26th, 2014 |rowspan=3 style="background:rgba(255,0,0,0.125)"|DiddyKongHeadSSB4-3.pngMarioHeadSSB4-3.pngNessHeadSSB4-3.png Team Red Hat |style="font-size:75%;background:rgba(255,0,0,0.125)"|Americas||style="font-size:75%;background:rgba(255,0,0,0.125)"|—% |rowspan=3 style="background:rgba(255,0,0,0.125)"|—% |rowspan=3 style="background:rgba(0,0,255,0.125)"|LinkHeadSSB4-3.pngLuigiHeadSSB4-3.pngToonLinkHeadSSB4-3.png Team Green Hat |style="font-size:75%;background:rgba(0,0,255,0.125)"|Americas||style="font-size:75%;background:rgba(0,0,255,0.125)"|—% |rowspan=3 style="background:rgba(0,0,255,0.125)"|—% |rowspan=3|—||—||—||rowspan=3|— |- |style="font-size:75%;background:rgba(255,0,0,0.125)"|Europe/Oceania||style="font-size:75%;background:rgba(255,0,0,0.125)"|—% |style="font-size:75%;background:rgba(0,0,255,0.125)"|Europe/Oceania||style="font-size:75%;background:rgba(0,0,255,0.125)"|—% |—||— |- |style="font-size:75%;background:rgba(255,0,0,0.125)"|Japan||style="font-size:75%;background:rgba(255,0,0,0.125)"|—% |style="font-size:75%;background:rgba(0,0,255,0.125)"|Japan||style="font-size:75%;background:rgba(0,0,255,0.125)"|—% |—||— |} I just don't know what to do! I did the right procedures and everything (Peachboy105 (talk) 17:38, 22 December 2014 (EST))

Okay, so let's step back a bit. Here's the code for the most recent 3DS conquest in the table already:

{{Conquest round
|name=Ties that Bind
|startdate=December 15th, 2014
|enddate=December 19th, 2014
|red-name=Brotherly Bonds
|blue-name=Emblem Warriors
|green-name=Father and Son
|green1=Bowser Jr.

Try copying this code and simply editing the relevant fields to switch in the relevant data. If you try that and continue to have difficulty, please post here for further assistance. Miles (talk) 17:58, 22 December 2014 (EST)

It worked! Thank you so much, does that code apply to list of conquests for the Wii U version as well? (Peachboy105 (talk) 18:20, 22 December 2014 (EST))
It does, yes. Both lists use the same template and format. Just be sure that you have the following at the end of the whole table still:
Glad I could help clear this up. Miles (talk) 18:26, 22 December 2014 (EST)
Umm, the Wii U list of conquests isn't working perhaps I am doing it wrong? |-

Don't worry I didn't save it! (Peachboy105 (talk) 18:35, 22 December 2014 (EST))
Ah, I might see the problem. Are you previewing the code where it would actually be, in the table on the appropriate page? The Conquest round template outputs rows for a table, so if you test it on this page, outside of the table, you won't get the desired result. Miles (talk) 18:40, 22 December 2014 (EST)
Oh yeah, silly me. But it still gave me the same result on the Conquest page, so I don't know what to do! Can you help me out, I'd really appreciate it! ^_^ (Peachboy105 (talk) 18:43, 22 December 2014 (EST))
Still not quite sure what your issue was; I installed your code successfully here. It may be because you disrupted the template somehow, perhaps by putting it before the }} of the preceding row. Either way, I hope comparing what I did there to what you were trying helps you see what wasn't working. Miles (talk) 19:35, 22 December 2014 (EST)
