Earthworm Series Navigator


This is a component page used internally by the SCP Wiki. It is intended to be used and included on other pages.

What this is

A bunch of miscellaneous CSS 'improvements' that I, CroquemboucheCroquembouche, use on a bunch of pages because I think it makes them easier to deal with.

The changes this component makes are bunch of really trivial modifications to ease the writing experience and to make documenting components/themes a bit easier (which I do a lot). It doesn't change anything about the page visually for the reader — the changes are for the writer.

I wouldn't expect translations of articles that use this component to also use this component, unless the translator likes it and would want to use it anyway.

This component probably won't conflict with other components or themes, and even if it does, it probably won't matter too much.


On any wiki:

[[include :scp-wiki:component:croqstyle]]

This component is designed to be used on other components. When using on another component, be sure to add this inside the component's [[iftags]] block, so that users of your component are not forced into also using Croqstyle.

CSS changes

Reasonably-sized footnotes

Stops footnotes from being a million miles wide, so that you can actually read them.

.hovertip { max-width: 400px; }

Monospace edit/code

Makes the edit textbox monospace, and also changes all monospace text to Fira Code, the obviously superior monospace font.

@import url(';700&display=swap');
:root { --mono-font: "Fira Code", Cousine, monospace; }
#edit-page-textarea, .code pre, .code p, .code, tt, .page-source { font-family: var(--mono-font); }
.code pre * { white-space: pre; }
.code *, .pre * { font-feature-settings: unset; }

Teletype backgrounds

Adds a light grey background to <tt> elements ({{text}}), so code snippets stand out more.

tt {
  background-color: var(--swatch-something-bhl-idk-will-fix-later, #f4f4f4);
  font-size: 85%;
  padding: 0.2em 0.4em;
  margin: 0;
  border-radius: 6px;

No more bigfaces

Stops big pictures from appearing when you hover over someone's avatar image, because they're stupid and really annoying and you can just click on them if you want to see the big version.

.avatar-hover { display: none !important; }

Breaky breaky

Any text inside a div with class nobreak has line-wrapping happen between every letter.

.nobreak { word-break: break-all; }

Code colours

Add my terminal's code colours as variables. Maybe I'll change this to a more common terminal theme like Monokai or something at some point, but for now it's just my personal theme, which is derived from Tomorrow Night Eighties.

Also, adding the .terminal class to a fake code block as [[div class="code terminal"]] gives it a sort of pseudo-terminal look with a dark background. Doesn't work with [[code]], because Wikidot inserts a bunch of syntax highlighting that you can't change yourself without a bunch of CSS. Use it for non-[[code]] code snippets only.

Quick tool to colourise a 'standard' Wikidot component usage example with the above vars: link

:root {
  --c-bg: #393939;
  --c-syntax: #e0e0e0;
  --c-comment: #999999;
  --c-error: #f2777a;
  --c-value: #f99157;
  --c-symbol: #ffcc66;
  --c-string: #99cc99;
  --c-operator: #66cccc;
  --c-builtin: #70a7df;
  --c-keyword: #cc99cc;
.terminal, .terminal > .code {
  color: var(--c-syntax);
  background: var(--c-bg);
  border: 0.4rem solid var(--c-comment);
  border-radius: 1rem;

Debug mode

Draw lines around anything inside .debug-mode. The colour of the lines is red but defers to CSS variable --debug-colour.

You can also add div.debug-info.over and div.debug-info.under inside an element to annotate the debug boxes — though you'll need to make sure to leave enough vertical space that the annotation doesn't overlap the thing above or below it.

…like this!

.debug-mode, .debug-mode *, .debug-mode *::before, .debug-mode *::after {
  outline: 1px solid var(--debug-colour, red);
  position: relative;
.debug-info {
  position: absolute;
  left: 50%;
  transform: translateX(-50%);
  font-family: 'Fira Code', monospace;
  font-size: 1rem;
  white-space: nowrap;
.debug-info.over { top: -2.5rem; }
.debug-info.under { bottom: -2.5rem; }
.debug-info p { margin: 0; }

What this is

A visually improved navigator for any series of articles.

Created by CroquemboucheCroquembouche for the purposes of the 2018 Doomsday contest, though of course anyone is free to use it.


On any wiki:

[[include :scp-wiki:component:earthworm
| first=false | last=false | hub=yes
| previous-url=URL_OF_PREVIOUS | previous-title=TITLE OF PREVIOUS
| next-url=URL_OF_NEXT | next-title=TITLE OF NEXT
| hub-url=URL_OF_HUB | hub-title=TITLE OF HUB

Don't remove any of the pipe symbols! (|)

You should have 3 articles that you need to link to:

  1. The previous article in the series.
  2. The next article in the series.
  3. The hub page for the series.

Previous article

Replace URL_OF_PREVIOUS with the URL for the previous page in the series. For example, or /scp-001.
Replace TITLE OF PREVIOUS with the name of the previous page.

If the current page is the first page in the series, then there is no previous page. Leave both of the above fields blank by setting them to / (e.g. previous-url=/), and set first to true.

Next article

Replace URL_OF_NEXT with the URL for the next page in the series. For example, or /scp-003.
Replace TITLE OF NEXT with the name of that page.

If the current page is the last page in the series, then there is no next page. Leave both of the above fields blank by setting them to / (e.g. next-url=/), and set last to true.

Hub page

Replace URL_OF_HUB with the URL for the series' hub page. For example, or /scp-series.
Replace TITLE OF HUB with the name of that page.

If your series does not currently have a hub page, then set the parameter named hub to no. Replace TITLE OF HUB with whatever you want your series to be called, and set hub-url to /. If you make a hub page later, just change hub to yes and fill in the URL.
