- Symptom: Changes in one page are not 'immediately' showing up in another related/effected pages. (general MediaWiki feature)
- To force a direct page-update for related/affected pages, for quick debugging purposes, one would use a Null-edit on those pages.
- (Without a Null-edit those page will update at a later time)
- Reuploaded image wont change
- Open the image in a separate tab and refresh your browser.
- Small, hard to read wiki formula:
- Having an empty line before and after the math formula will display formulas in a bigger style.
In-Game names versus RoB-Wiki used names
When it comes to in-game names, the general rule it to stick to those at RoB-wiki.
But there are some exceptions where RoB-wiki uses a different name than the used in-game name.
Those exceptions are listed at the Game_v_RoB_name_changes page.
