How do I get advertisement and do the admin style comment and make a special welcome message on the messgae wall? —This unsigned comment is by Fiolet4eva (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

  • By advertisement, do you mean a spotlight? You can post a spotlight request here as long as it follows the best practices.
  • If you mean the admin comment highlight, you can add this code to Mediawiki:Wikia.css on your wiki:
.comments li[data-user="Example User 1"] blockquote { background:#A1CAF1 !important; }
.comments li[data-user="Example User 1"] blockquote:after { border-color: transparent #A1CAF1 #A1CAF1 transparent !important; }
.comments li[data-user="Example User 1"] blockquote div { background: transparent #A1CAF1 !important; }
.comments li[data-user="Example User 2"] blockquote { background:#A1CAF1 !important; }
.comments li[data-user="Example User 2"] blockquote:after { border-color: transparent #A1CAF1 #A1CAF1 transparent !important; }
.comments li[data-user="Example User 2"] blockquote div { background: transparent #A1CAF1 !important; }
- and so on.

Actually for the admin style comment I meant how do you make the comments say "[admin]" at the bottom? F4E Talk 23:59, August 16, 2012 (UTC)
Why do you need them to say "admin"? If the comment boxes have a particular stylistic difference — like highlight or colour — then they immediately read as coming from an admin. You might want to also read Forum:Trouble with comment colors for more info. One way I can think of to get it to say "admin" is to follow the instructions at Forum:Trouble with comment colors, but include a background-image which consists of the (transparently-backgrounded) word "admin". Course, I wouldn't put this image at the bottom, since comment boxes expand. But you could quite easily put it at the top right and it'd be in the same place on every admin comment box. czechout@Wikia    fly tardis  <span style="">16:47: Fri 17 Aug 2012 
To accomplish that, you could use this CSS instead:
.edited-by a[href="http://***YOUR WIKI***.wikia.com/wiki/User:Fiolet4eva"]:after,
.edited-by a[href="http://***YOUR WIKI***.wikia.com/wiki/User:anotheradmin"]:after,
.edited-by a[href="http://***YOUR WIKI***.wikia.com/wiki/User:anotheradmin"]:after, 
{content: " (Admin)"}
- filling out your sitename and admin usernames. Dzylon  Talk  08:33:53  August 17, 2012
