From The Grindhouse Cinema Database
Revision as of 11:45, 23 September 2011 by PopeyePete
Can anyone walk me through the process of upload an image? I've got the uploading part, but I can't seen to add the proper file links. Please see image for The Burning Hell. If someone could please help me get it on to the new review page, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
NOTE: Now that youre logged in you can use the user Talk/Discussion options to ask any questions etc. Thanks again! --PopeyePete 16:45, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, I set my account up with the signature "Texploited." although my full name appears as the byline. How do I fix this?
Well since I registered you under your real name I cant change it, if you can see my above signature, you can add Texploitation on the other side of the Username and | that way you can use both names. --PopeyePete 17:57, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
Hey T: To add photos, just copy the File code and put it in brackets [[ ]] on the page. To adjust size just add on preferred number: |200px (for example). To align add: |left, |right |center etc. To add a caption: frame|yourcommentshere --PopeyePete 19:57, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Pete, slowly but surely I'll figure this out.
Youre on fire T! An awesome job on these reviews/articles. Thanks very much! ---PopeyePete 21:21, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! --[[User:TayvisDunnahoe|Texploited]] 02:33, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
Pete, should the Directors, Producers, Actors, etc. be alphabetized by last name? I'm trying to organize for future profiles and it seems to difficult to discover figures we've covered or haven't yet included. I typically search for "last names" in alphabetized categories, so I thought it might do better to organize these names that way. I actually started with the Producers category (i.e. "Category:Producer|Ormond" for Ron Ormond. However, before I went into the Director's tab I thought I'd check with you first. (I probably should have done that first). Anyway, let me know which way you think makes the most sense. I don't mind doing the work. Thanks. --[[User:TayvisDunnahoe|Texploited]] 18:02, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
If you wanted to set up the director categories that way, it would be great. As long as people can find them easy, its all good! --PopeyePete 21:52, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
You cant log in to the forum? Which browser are you using? We had some trouble with the Safari browser, but I thought it was fixed. If you use Firefox it should work fine. As far as the Database Article topic. We're looking for any articles about directors/producers/studios/actors that we dont already have. I set that up as a way for people to post rough drafts, maybe get some other info/links that people might have too. --PopeyePete 14:01, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
Yep my forum username is PutneySwope. If you can register, it would be great to discuss films etc. The Mondo subgenre is one subject that I'd like to add to the database. We really want to cover as much ground as we can on those kinds of films. I dont know that much about it myself, Ive only seen a couple mondo flix, but it would be great to have at least an overview of the genre for newbies. --PopeyePete 15:00, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
Hey T, welcome back! Hope youre having a great summer. Ive been thinking of doing some special features for the site , basically giving certain grindhouse/cult icons a special page with custom graphics/themes plus articles/bios etc. I was just looking at the Tom Laughlin page and noticed you were working on one for him awhile ago. It would be very cool if we could expand that. I could add some new graphics for it and get it ready for the future article. We're currently doing a special for Laura Gemser, if you look at that page youll see what we're going for. Talk to ya later! - PopeyePete 21:55, 15 August 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Pete, I was looking T. Laughlin's page too. I've got a few movie reviews to catch up on, but I've got research in hand on the Laughlin bio. I'll be traveling quite a bit for the next month or so, but will try to get the bio together as soon as I can. Thanks.
T, just a note on the images, before yopu upload, can you resize them to under 650 pixels in width just so they dont go off the page/take up extra memory? Thanks! Great caps btw! --PopeyePete 15:33, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
No problem, I'll have to figure out how to resize images. I tried to modify the earlier caps using your instruction on the forum "[img height = 100 width=100]" and probably overshot the width. Thanks for letting me know. --Texploited
The ones in the forum look cool, its the actual uploads in here that should be a bit smaller. 650px is the limit before they go beyond the borders of the page. If you have Photoshop or a similar program you can do resize, just goto Image --> Size and adjust. --PopeyePete
WIKI NEWS: Hey T, Ive recently added an RSS Feed to the site, which is great cuz now we wont have to do News updates by hand anymore. One detail that I wanted to let you know about is The Minor Edit option at the bottom of the pages. how it works is: If you add pics/text to a old data page, you can now click the minor edit and it wont show up on the RSS Feed as an update. If you open a new page you can just add it as usual and that will show up on the feed. but, its really up to you what you want to show up on the feed. --PopeyePete 20:10, 1 January 2011 (CET)
Just got access to the delete function recently so now we can free up space if there are any mistakes or blank pages which is great. Thanks for all the latest edits btw!
One note I wanted to tell you about is: Now that we have the RSS feed updates, what u can do so certain pages dont show up on it (if youre talking in these discussion sections, just fixing things or adding a second poster etc) is click "this is Minor Edit" before you save. BUT if youre opening a new page and want it to appear in the feed, dont click it. The main reason I want to do this is because the revision codes show up on the older pages which looks kinda bad. But they dont on new pages. --PopeyePete 19:43, 8 February 2011 (CET)
Awesome work on the site! Thanks T! -PopeyePete 22:48, 17 February 2011 (CET)
Hey T, just a note on page categories, if the new pages dont have reviews yet you can leave off that category. thanks! --PopeyePete 14:06, 8 March 2011 (CET)
I noticed it needed the review 2 sub-page when you edited that. all set now. cheers --PopeyePete 01:17, 15 March 2011 (CET)
I was wondering why noone has been in the forum!! Shit! You cant get in there at all? I have to talk to Seb about that. I didnt realize youve been locked out.
This interview sounds awesome! It would def be great for the site (which we need). Ill also post it on the main page for next months feature article. As soon as you have time you can open up a page. Once its there, we can add images etc and get it set up to look cool. ok? Talk to ya soon! --PopeyePete
Interview sounds great! All we really need to do first is think of what we want to call the set up page. Also get some pics if possible. Lookin forward to reading it when its done! --PopeyePete 13:21, 8 July 2011 (CEST)
VHS Covers: The max should be about 700px wide, cuz anything bigger will go off the page and it also takes up alot of memory. you can add these to the VHS covers page too which would be cool since we need more for it. Just click Edit, add the .jpg after the first set of " at the top (dont forget to click Minor edit so it doesnt show on the RSS feed). Cheers! -PopeyePete 14:08, 8 July 2011 (CEST)
Hey T, just a note: For adding VHS covers to mainpage from now on you can use Template:VHS Covers instead of the Classic VHS Covers page. I forgot to mention it before. Thanks! --PopeyePete 18:58, 14 August 2011 (CEST)
To add covers to our template just type in Template:VHS Covers, then when the page is in edit mode, put the image after the first set of " followed by the word "choices" at the top, if you look at how its set up should be pretty clear. If theres any troubles I can help fix. Thanks! (note I added one of the new covers just as an example) :) --PopeyePete 13:29, 24 August 2011 (CEST)
Yep its pretty simple stuff, just gotta get to know the code setups. The Video Sanctum is going great, glad to help out! --PopeyePete 14:13, 24 August 2011 (CEST)
Everything sounds great w/ the interview. What about a title? maybe "Aftermath: An Interview with Steve Barkett" ? Let me know if you have something u want to use. Then we can open up the page. We could also use pics if you can get em. Just to round things out. Thanks very much for contributing this! ttyl --PopeyePete 13:45, 23 September 2011 (CEST)
