A campaign, also known as a world or a universe, is the way data is stored in Kanka. Everything belongs to a campaign.
Creating a campaign
To create a campaign, open the campaign switcher and click on new campaign.
The following aims to detail each field available when creating or editing a campaign. To access this interface, click on World and Edit campaign.
The first tab is the entry tab, containing the most basic fields.
A campaign needs a world, containing at least 4 characters. Campaign names aren’t unique (we wouldn’t want a single Tal’Dorei now would we?). A campaign’s name can be changed at any time.
A short (or long, we don’t judge!) description of your campaign. A preview of this displays on the campaign’s dashboard, and the full text is available when clicking on World or Campaign in the sidebar.
This field can contain mentions to entities of the campaign!
This tab controls some basic look and feel of the campaign.
Rather than displaying the campaign in the user viewing it’s preferred theme, you can force the campaign to appear in a specific theme.
Campaign’s member list
Control who can see the campaign’s member list. This list is available in World and Members.
Entity history logs
Control who can see individual entity’s change logs.
Tooltip - Entity’s image
By default, tooltips that appear when hovering an entity link don’t display that entity’s image. This can be changed with this option.
Default entity’s connections interface
When clicking on an entity’s relations subpage, select what displays. On boosted campaigns, the default is to show the relation explorer.
Default relations explorer mode
When opening an entity’s relation explorer, control which mode is opened by default.
Default lists layout
Select if nested entities display in a user’s preferred layout, or if you want to force nested lists.
New post default collapsed value
Control if newly created posts are collapsed by default.
This tab allows you to set the default privacy and visibility settings of new elements created in the campaign.
Default new entity privacy
When creating a new entity as an admin, select the default privacy setting of the new entity.
Default character personality visibility
When creating a new character as an admin, select the default privacy setting for its personality traits.
The last tab controls info displayed on the dashboard’s campaign header widget.
