Introduction[edit]

This is a tutorial for how to create and maintain your own tournament on Liquipedia. We'll go through how to deal with the different templates. The bold text will be the actual "code" and italic text will be my comments on the code. A good template ready to copy and paste will be found at the end of each segment. It is still encouraged that you first read this page to find all the tools available.

Section-headers[edit]

An important part of any Liquipedia page is good headings to make an easy to navigate Table of Contents (or TOC)-box at the top of the page. some normal ones include Overview, Format, Players, Group-stage, Bracket, Rules and Racial Distribution. You can of course create others and ignore some to best suit the tournament you're creating the page for. You create a heading by starting a new line and entering:
==HEADER NAME==
And then another line break after it so as to leave it as the only text or code on that line. The HEADER NAME should be changed to the name you want to give the header. If you want to make a sub header within that section, use three equal-signs on each side of the name, and a further sub heading would be four equal-signs on each side.

Naming the tournament[edit]

There are a few diffrent standard on how to name your tournament. When you use what standard is depending on if the the tournament

Naming standards:
"Organizer/year/event" for example DreamHack/2015/Winter
"Organizer/Season X/Event" for example SLTV/Season 11/StarSeries


Adding an infobox to your tournament page[edit]

An Infobox is one of the standard features of any Liquipedia page and it's no different for tournaments and leagues, situated at the top right corner of a page it gives some brief information about the tournament. The {{Infobox league}}-template should come before the article text, but perhaps after other templates such as Tabs or Stub, and also after a banner, should you have added that to the top of the page. Following will be the explanation of the code, and some templates for you to use on a tournament page.

Code Explanation[edit]

Copy & Paste Templates[edit]

You'll find three templates and a full variables list below. Chose the one that suits your needs the best.

NOTE: After you've entered all the information you have, do not add: 0, N/A, TBD etc. to empty variable fields, instead it is oftentimes best to just remove the empty ones, unless you know this information will be coming in the future (like results for first through third place) but then you can just leave the fields blank.

Template Brackets[edit]

There is a number of templates available on Liquipedia that can be used to easily create brackets for tournament pages. This page gives an overview on how to use them.

FAQ[edit]

Linking to player and team pages[edit]

There are a number of ways to link to players pages on Liquipedia. See below:

Template Sidebar[edit]

1) Where do I upload my banner to Liquipedia?

On the left side of the page, a bit down, you have "Toolbox" and there you'll find "Upload File".

2) I uploaded the file and wrote the name (my_banner.png) where you told me but it still wont show the picture?

When you upload a file the wiki template always makes the first letter capital and, since everything on Liquipedia is case-sensitive, you need to write: My_banner.png

3) Where do I input the number of random players?

We are currently working on implementing that. It is currently not possible.

4) What if I don't have a 3rd/4th place match?

Then you don't have to use the idthird, just remove them from the code.
