Infobox and categories

A few additional pointers regarding the applicable infoboxes and categories:

Quest article layout

The layout is composed of three tables. The top and bottom tables are standard layout items found in every article; they are only included here for completeness and are collapsed by default. The middle table contains the actual specifics for quest pages.

  • Icon check in the "headline" column means that the article should have a headline of that name if you want to include such a layout item.
    Icon cross in the "headline" column means that this layout item should not have a headline.
  • Icon check in the "required" column means that every quest article should include this layout item.
    Icon cross in the "required" column means that not every quest article needs to include this layout item.
