Admin Dashboard General Tab

The Admin Dashboard is a centralized space that highlights the most important tools used by admins. The special pages are built into it to make the Admin Dashboard the go-to place for admins and founders to easily tweak and monitor their wikia.

Accessing the dashboardEdit

The Admin Dashboard is available on all wikias you have founded or are an administrator on.

It can be found by clicking on "Admin" in the universal Toolbar at the bottom of your screen, or by visiting Special:AdminDashboard.

How it worksEdit

Important admin tools that are often used live on the "General" tab. The following links point to the help pages for each function.

Wiki
Theme Designer - quickly and easily give your wikia a theme
Recent Changes - track the latest community activity
Top Navigation - update your wikia's navigation bar
Wiki Features - turn special features on and off
Promote - promote your wikia so it will appear on the Wikia homepage on our mobile apps
CSS - allows advanced theme customization
Community
User List - see a list of users on your wikia
User Rights - give (and remove) special rights from members of your community
Community Corner

Content
All Categories - see a list of all the categories on your wikia
Add a Page, Add a Photo, Add a Blog Post - quickly add content to your wikia
Multiple Photo Upload - need to upload a lot of photos at once? Use this!
Licensed Video Swap - quickly replace videos with licensed, high definition versions

The "Advanced" tab is home to the rest of the special pages on the wikia, normally found on Special:SpecialPages. (If you visit a wikia that you are not an admin of you will see Special:SpecialPages in a more basic format.)

Quick StatsEdit

Quick Stats lives on the right side of the Admin Dashboard. Here you can monitor your wikia's recent statistics. It shows page views, edits, and photo uploads for the past seven days.
