Hello. I'm an admin at w:c:bakerstreet which is for everything to do with Sherlock Holmes, and I was thinking of making portal pages for the different adaptations to make navigation easier for people. So what I would like is to have a version of the main page for Sherlock, one for Elementary, one for the Guy Ritchie films etc

I've seen on the w:c:fallout wiki that they seem to have this, and that the portal pages look just like the main page - with no sidebar. How would I do this? --bloob (talk) 13:57, February 18, 2013 (UTC)

This is generally not allowed to do, see TOU on foot.--PedroM 14:53, February 18, 2013 (UTC)
Well if you're not allowed to do it, how come they have? bloob (talk) 18:07, February 18, 2013 (UTC)

You have to ask the staff to set a special namespace for portals. Then if you create a page in that namespace it shouldn't have the sidebar. The details will be explained by staff when you send the request. leviathan_89 18:24, 18 February, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the answer. I'll do that! :) bloob (talk) 18:30, February 18, 2013 (UTC)
