Puppet  Creation - Title - Tagline How To
 

Puppet Creation:

Puppets are issued on a first-come-first-served basis and are unique in nature. Meaning that if someone has the handle named 'Joe Blow' and one attempts to create a handle of the same name, Whispering Realms Chat will prevent the creation of the second handle of the same name.

Handles, cannot be shorter then three characters, but in return allows for a multitude of special characters. In fact handles can be customized to a degree like ' ngel In lck ' or '� Incomplete �' which are actually legal and valid for use within the individual Realms.

In order to add a user complete the following steps:

 

There are a few ways to create your puppet.

First is:

Once logged into the site and player is in the realm listing, on the left there will be "Character Setup"

Below that will be Puppet Manager

Click on this.

 

Second is:

Once in the room there will be a link that the owner of the room has dedicated for your puppet configuration, the default is Config

Click on that and another window will open for you to now create your puppet

 

Once on the Config screen to the left player will have a list of all  of his/her puppets

Below the list there will be a "Create New Puppet"

Type in a desired puppet name under the box next to "Puppet Name?"

Once the player is done click on Insert.

The puppet will now show on the left with the list of other puppets

 

(From what we understand there is no limit to how many puppets you can have)

 

Puppet Removal:

The removal of puppets is more extreme then puppet suspension which is found within the Puppeteer Configuration script. If you however, do see a need of removing them outright then the following steps would be followed:

 

Go to the main configuration screen for Puppets 0

Select the desired puppet from the Puppets list

Click on the 'Remove' button
[The user will then disappear from that list of puppets after the page has loaded once more]

 

Puppet Modification:

Once a puppet has been made, now it is time to give it some style. The below will show each player how to put style to their charactor.

IF anyone has any questions on this please contact Lessien at whisper@whisperingrealmschat.net

 

 

Once here you will be able to modify the following options:

Image Link:

Many puppets posting in Realms will have an image that is used in conjunction with the post. This can of course vary in size and dimensions and all that is required is a valid URL to an image. A point of interest is that WRC will automatically provide the dimensions once your submit. Best Picture Size to suite most rooms are 450x450

 

Puppets Homepage:

This field which requires a valid URL allows the Puppeteer to link to a page of significance for that puppet. This can be character sheets for Vampire the Masquerade (TM) or a personal page for more personal puppets in nature. Be it what it may, if you wish to link something from your puppet on a consistent basis use this link. (this is not necessary or mandatory for completing a puppet )

 

Gummy Picture:

Gummies are images that provide a link to the puppets homepage. They also allow to be changed for appearance and preference. Currently there is a myriad of icons to choose from, and are generally ordered in an alphabetical manner. Select one you wish and submit at the bottom for the change to take effect. Gummies are as well used for if someone wishes to send individuals private messages they can click on it and it will allow each user to send private messages back and forth.

 

Title:

This field is where the puppets name will appear. Of course this can be changed so the name itself will appear in different colours and fonts (if you are familiar with HTML) or move the name around as one sees fit. This can be done using the case sensitive NAME macro for example: 'Just a regular NAME today' will appear as 'Just a regular Joe today' if the puppets name is in fact Joe. Of course if NAME is omitted the name will appear in the beginning of the title and any text added into this field will appear after the name. In other words, use the NAME macro if you wish to change where the name will appear. Once you have completed changes to your puppet. Press the submit button, once the page has reloaded, the changes you make should re-appear. If this is not the case then try again or contact the webmaster.

 

Tagline:

The tagline section is a field into which you can write such things as E-Mail address, instant messenger information or really whatever one wishes. This merely serves as an additional information field located after the title.

NOTE: Click on back to listing will take you back to the main section of this script.

Below is some help with how to set up your Title And Tag Lines If anyone needs any help with this please contact Lessien at whisper@whisperingrealmschat.net

Title:

There are few marcos that you are able to use in your puppets title to customize the way your tag line looks.

NAME - this will insert the puppets name anywhere in your title that you wish to place it.
LOCALE - this is place you location anywhere in your title that you wish. (this feature only works if the realm has the location option in use
</NAME> removes the name from you puppet to allow for a name plate. This is helpful if your puppet was taken and you had to put a stand in name
</DATETIME> removes the date and time out of your tag if it is turned on in a realm
 

NAME Example: If you puppet name is Estorianna Jertan then putting in the NAME marco in the tag will allow you to change the size, color, font face, and position of your puppet name.

code example:
<center>

<font color="#9F8A51">

I am NAME

 I am the your worse nightmare
AIM: Jertan</font>

 

What it will look like in the room:


I am Estorianna Jertan
I am the your worse nightmare
AIM: Jertan

 

Removing Name from Title:

If when you tried to crate your puppet and the name was taken and you had to use an off name such as 1Lessien1, and you do not want it to show that way in your title the following well help (this works as well if you use a name plate shown at the bottom)

<center>

<font color="#9F8A51">

I am </NAME> Lessien

I am the Owner of Whispering Realms Chat
</font>

Remember, when typing in your Title box make sure there is no extra code that you might have copy and pasted over, when you hit enter, it will create another line, If in the code you brought over you have <br> remove it

Example Of Too many spaces:

<center>

<font color="#9F8A51">

I am </NAME> Lessien

<br>

I am the Owner of Whispering Realms Chat

<br>
