Navigation[edit]

There are three main ways that you can find information on this wiki: browsing through published lists of content, category listings, and semantic properties.

Browsing the Wiki[edit]

The primary way to navigate this wiki is to just follow the links from the main menu found on the left hand side of any page, and following links to the type of content you are looking for. Navigating in this way shows content that has been published by users.

Navigating Using Categories[edit]

Each published article on Dungeons and Dragons Wiki is marked with several categories. At the bottom of each page will be a listing of each category the article belongs to.

For example, a base class might have a category listing that looks like the following set of links:

Clicking on a link to an individual category will show all articles that belong to that category.

If you want to link to a category within an article, use the format [[:Category:Category Name|Text]]. For instance, [[:Category:Condition|Special Effect]] would display as Special Effect. Doing this will not place your page within the category you linked to.

Navigating Using Properties[edit]

Semantic properties work similarly to categories, but they allow us to do some more fancy things.

The properties for each article are listed below the article's categories. By clicking on the magnifying glass icon, you can view every page that has that property (much like a category). For example, you can see all pages with a "Rogue" balance point by going to this page: Special:SearchByProperty/Balance-20Point/Rogue.

What is interesting about semantic properties is the Semantic Search option. On this page, you can specify a query to give more complex result sets. For example, by entering [[Minimum Level::<6]] as your query, you will get a set of results that have a Minimum Level property that is less than 6.
