  • I think it's a great idea to mention this event, but I think that it should be contained within the Episode Page.  It doesn't really work as a stand-alone page. 

    If you were to create a Section on the Episode Page that includes all the text currently on the page you created, you could still link to the Section from the Body Count page.

    • Oh, really? I thought that it would be fine, but if you say so, I'll fix this.

    • Don't get me wrong, I love content!  The more the better.  But the episodes of MM are not "serialized" in that they really don't have any connection to each other besides the characters and setting.  This event was specific to a particular episode and should be strongly linked to that episode.  My first thought when I read it was what category could it go in? That led me to feel that it should be incorporated into the Episode Page. 

      I suppose that it is also possible that you're thinking more long-term than I and may have been planning to create a Page such as "Important events in Midsomer County" or something, and then list things such as this, and the "Night of the Stag", the "Straw Woman", Little Worthy's annual boat race, etc.  Now that would be great!

    • For now I'll do as you said. Maybe in the future there will be a page like this, even though at first I didn't think about it. About the category maybe it could have been in Accidental Death, but I realise that maybe it wouldn't fit.

  • In Fandom, the home page is called the "Main Page". There is a lot of special formatting code on it that makes it challenging to edit, so you have to be very careful. Remember, this is usually the first page that new users see, so presentation is important!

    I don't think that displaying a single video from a particular series makes much sense, but I don't have a problem with displaying a gallery of videos as long as they can be labelled as to what they are.

    I put some CSS code in that will hide the video file name, so you can put in whatever text you need. You just need to make sure that you enclose the gallery in the <div> tags that are in the following example (open this post in source mode to get a better view of the code):

    <div class="hide-video-names">
    <gallery captionalign="center" widths="200" hideaddbutton="true">
    File:Midsomer_Murders_Series_10|<b><font size="+1">Hello, this is text that you can put under the thumbnail</font></b>
    File:Midsomer_Murders_Series_10_Episode_8_-_Death_in_a_Chocolate_Box_Preview
    File:Midsomer_Murders_Series_10|Hello
    File:Midsomer_Murders_Series_10_Episode_8_-_Death_in_a_Chocolate_Box_Preview
    File:Midsomer_Murders_Series_10|Hello
    File:Midsomer_Murders_Series_10_Episode_8_-_Death_in_a_Chocolate_Box_Preview
    </gallery>
    </div>

    • Do the 6 videos that come from the new Template fill up the space or are they really small?

      Most of the high volume Wikis that I checked use Templates to structure their entire Main Page. Maybe we'll do that too.

      I know what you are trying to do and I think that having 3 vids across is best, as long as they don't overlap into the right column (as it shows in the image above) nor are to small.  Right now, neither of us know how to do that.  It's time to ask Fandom Staff.  I'll post a question and see if I can get some answers.

    • Did you saw my other question about videos? It's on your wall.
