Links to Questions[edit source]

Hello Gklingle--the story booth looks exciting and useful. However, when I tried the links to "Questions that can be used to talk about," I got a page that said I needed permission to access that page. I doubt that you want your patrons to get that unhelpful response to an attempt to access the questions Fbnielsen 03:45, 5 September 2015 (UTC)fnielsen 3:39, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

Editing Template for Colorado Springs[edit source]

Hi! I'm on the Wiki Support Team and am monitoring new pages and changes. I really like what you are doing but wanted to make a suggestion on this template. I have put a revised template below. I believe the words "Discovery Center Menu" are intended to be a title and not a link (since it is red, indicating there is no such page) so changed that to bold text. I changed the links from external links (outside the Wiki) to internal links (within the Wiki) format, which eliminates the arrow and also makes the search stay within the wiki. I also removed the period in Merit Badge Workshop. I have not made any of these changes on the template page itself. If you are agreement with this you can just copy the Wikitext below and overlay your table.

I notice that there are internal Wiki links throughout the website that are coded as external links. I invite you to review the Wiki help page on how to create an internal link including the advanced Wikitext coding (since you seem to be quite advanced in your page development. This articles explains the advantages of using internal links for pages within the Wiki.

Thank you for the great work you are doing! Let me know if you have any questions.
