Hi! I recently seeked some info in Avatar Wikia (

I saw that they have incredibly customised wikia- They have a popup windows with much information, something like "Create Protection" on their wiki and even their page editor looks different.

So my question is: How one can do such things and where to find tutorials on it? It jsut really interested me, as I just have never met such a thing, I didn't even know one can customise wikia so much...

Your request is a bit vague. You should give a link to your wiki and list each individual feature (with as much description as possible) you see in Avatar wiki that you'd like to recreate in your wiki. Some of the things you call popup windows are actually just fancy tooltips (they are not popup windows, technically, since you can't really interact with them). -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 13 Feb 2012 1:12 PM Pacific

Wow, so those are tooltips? :o Thx, it already answered me a lot :) So, to say more precisely: How can one edit thier "Page editor" on wiki? On Avatar wiki it was the implemented list to chose a most popular summaires from. I would like to create a button addind some short content to page when pressed: is something like this possible?
