This page serves as a reminder/introduction for contributors, with sections listing general editing tips, plus a full list of every custom template.


Character Pages

If you're adding strategy information to a Character page, One Armed.png One Armed is a good point of reference. It has a table for synergies and makes liberal use of the MiniIconbox template. Another good character page to reference is Mage.png Mage, who has a section for their starting items, and Ranger.png Ranger, who has a Notes section for their starting weapons.

Mod Pages

If you want to show things like character and weapon stats, Mod:Extatonion and Mod:Isaac_Characters_Mod are excellent points of reference, as they make great use of the special templates available.
