Quick Notes

  • Leaving any parameter (except wpnName, wpnImg and mainBodyDesc) blank or empty will simply hide that value on the live page. Use this option if you are unsure of a value.
  • Leaving a section blank or empty (i.e. Attachments, Crafting, Gallery, Trivia) will hide that entire section on the live page.
  • Leave wpnName blank. It will automatically use the page name.

To add a new attachment in that category, simply copy and paste the previous three parameters and change the number at the end. (e.g. Magn1, Magl1, Magi1 => Magn2, Magl2, Magi2 => Magn3, Magl3, Magi3 => Magn4, Magl4, Magi4 ...).
  • Muzzles support 3 and Underslung support 2. Use the same method as above if you need to add more attachments.
