HelpEdit

How do I put a message at the top of my wiki?

Harry Timon 16:20, October 24, 2009 (UTC)

This can be done by editing MediaWiki:Sitenotice, see Help:Site notice for details.

Questions... Edit

I saw some sites with "Points" for users when theyadded stuff. How do I do that?

I saw that on the right side of a page extra information. How do I do that?

How do I make my own templates?

plz answer me, i need alot of help.

--Spedster777 20:57, October 24, 2009 (UTC)

The points feature isn't available any more. Read Help:Templates for more information about creating templates. Tedjuh10 - Talk 20:01, October 25, 2009 (UTC)

I'm unable to contribute Edit

Hi, I'm already registered with Wikia but I can't create a new article. I'll put everything in and then when I click Save, it just brings me to a blank "Special Page" called "Create Article". Is there a reason behind this?

Answer

  • If you are using the new wiki editor, you may not. It may be a glitch. Email wikia and they might be able to sort it out.

Follow up question:

  • I have been editing wikia since October and have over 4000 edits on several wikias. I am still unable to edit any of these help pages on this wiki, which is incredibly frustrating. Why, and how can I fix this? Anno1404 01:34, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
My user rights are: Autoconfirmed users, Users according to my preferences page, and I still cannot edit here.
Help:User_access_levels#All_users states:
"Anyone can read the wiki as well as create new pages and edit unprotected pages, including users without a user account."
Are all of the article pages on this wiki protected now?
When I attempt to edit these help pages, I get this message:
Please note: The Help namespace is semi-protected due to Shared Help.
You do not have permission to edit pages in the Help namespace.

Inter-subpage linking Edit

I'm creating a template/set of templates - We have 3 similar but very separate pages associated with each article. They are:

  • Main
  • Main/Subpage1
  • Main/Subpage2

The template(s) sit at the top of each page and display links to the different pages on the same subject:

  • Main-to-subpage links are easy
  • Subpage-to-main links I can do (a link to "../")
  • Subpage-subpage links... I can't figure that one out. Can you suggest anything?

Thanks!

Whoops - wasn't as difficult as I thought - link to ../subpage1 will do it. Simples!

I made a wiki today but it says im not an admin--The cheif 05:16, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

Search Works How?Edit

Forgive me, I don't get the search function. I can make a search box, or use the default one, but it never seems to find anything, even text I know is present. Help.Alexander Baker 23:58, January 10, 2010 (UTC)

Have you tried Help:Searching? If so, I recommend Special:Contact if you have further questions. Kirkburn (talk) @Wikia 10:33, January 13, 2010 (UTC)

dropdown box Edit

how do you make the "show" or "hide" for drop down box beside the word instead of below. I tried making the content box and the show/hide button is shown below instead of beside. Anyone can explain why ? Thanks in advance.--JackZ 08:53, March 23, 2010 (UTC)

Looking for egipcian gods Edit

Hello, i'm from Portugal and i'm looking for the 3 egipcian gods.I'd like to buy them for a good price

unable to edit main space pages againEdit

this is really ridiculous, I cannot edit main space pages again. I was supposedly okay-ed a while ago. With a confirmation of my e-mail, the edits I have, and the amount of time I have edited.

there are only 351 pages in this wiki, which can easily be monitored by the community without blocking most good faith editors. Anno1404 14:41, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

I can edit the pages again. sigh. Anno1404 15:50, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

Possible to add a ask a question link to the forum?Edit

Is it possible to add a "ask a question" link to the forum on the main page? Anno1404 15:50, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

How do you reply? Edit

i feel dumb just asking this. how do you reply to someone in the talk sections? do you just go to edit?

Help Index Edit

I think it might be very HELPFUL if the help index is listed in the front help page instead of being listed in tiny letters on the bottom of the help sub-pages. This will insure that new users can quickly find the help they are seeking instead of pressing different buttons hoping to find the right right subject and wasting time. It's not a hard thing to do and will save time and effort. File:20PX SIG.gif Talk 19:42, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

I don't mind the tiny letters, I just want a link to Help:Index from the first help page instead of having to click one of the buttons first. Duskey(talk) 20:33, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

Interlanguage link request Edit

Could an admin please add the interlanguage link [[pt:Ajuda:Conteúdos]] to this page? Thanks. 019mgq 17:00, August 29, 2010 (UTC)

A wikia alerts feed? Edit

I just got a notice pushed to my talk page about about some server maintenance. I dismissed it, and now I want to see it again. Where is it? Is there a Wikia news alert feed somewhere? This seems like something that should be easily findable from help.wikia.com or community.wikia.com, but I'm unable to find it. --GrantB 15:11, August 30, 2010 (UTC)

Userbox Problem! Edit

I need a HELP! on my page at http://fairlyoddparents.wikia.com/wiki/User:Fafa123, I didn't find the userbox that i could make. what should i do? and how do i make userboxes? --Fafa123 19:59, September 14, 2010 (UTC)

This is a question for your Wiki's admins, not here. Anyway, I think you want to use the Template:Userbox that's on your wiki. If you don't know how to use templates, then you need to spend time reading some Wiki how-to docs. --GrantB 20:10, September 14, 2010 (UTC)

tiny typo Edit

In the box that is at the bottom of the standard Help page, a caption for a large button reads "Dig deeper in to wiki editing" and "in to" should be "into". Thumlyly 9/28/10

Redirecting all pages hereEdit

See: http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Forum:Editor_moved_all_help_pages Anno1404 18:21, October 5, 2010 (UTC)

Hi, sorry for the confusion, but we are working to update all of the help pages to match the new look. I just wrote up a style guide with some suggestions. Let me know if you would like to help update this week. Thanks, --Sarah@Wikia (Help Forum) (blog) 22:18, October 6, 2010 (UTC)

Automatic edit summaries Edit

How do i make an Automatic edit summaries?--Kjam 00:41, December 6, 2010 (UTC)

Leave infobox fields blank? Edit

Hi, I'm wondering how to leave a field in an infobox blank. I know everyone just says don't put anything there, but that's not working... for example, on this template: [1], if I didn't want to include a "Faction" field on a certain page but still leave it on the template so other pages could have a Faction field, how would I do that? Any help would be greatly appreciated!--Tiptup Jr. 06:23, December 6, 2010 (UTC)

You do it by placing each field in the infobox within an #if: statement. The #if: statement first verifies whether the field has been passed to the infobox; if so, then the field is displayed, otherwise nothing is shown. Check w:c:pt.onepiece:Predefinição:Personagens for a live example. Note that the #if: uses pipes to separate its elements; the parser will confuse these pipes (which belong to the #if:) with the pipes used to define the table. So, within an #if: statement, to specify a pipe that belongs to the table you must use {{!}} instead. -- 019mgq 13:12, December 6, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you so much! After tinkering around some, I've got it to work to my advantage... I had to do quite a lot searching and I still couldn't find an answer to that, so once again- Thank you. :) --Tiptup Jr. 21:52, December 6, 2010 (UTC)

Header Problem Edit

Hi, I'm an admin over on the Ōkami Wiki and right now we're having some problems with the header image on the site. The image is located here. It's exactly the same as it has always been but recently it has begun to appear incorrectly on all the pages. Just look here and you will see what I mean. The whole image is there but right at the bottom is what appears to be the top of the image repeated. Any help would be greatly appreciated--Soul reaper 08:34, February 10, 2011 (UTC)

Contents Box Where I Don't Want It Edit

Hi there. I'm redesigning the front page of the Alex Rider Fannon Wiki using the Lostpedia front page template, but a content box for article navigation keeps appearing when I publish and I don't want it there. Is there some way to hide or block it from appearing?

Thanks, WarriorLoverInc 18:01, April 2, 2011 (UTC)

Programming various templates and wiki pages Edit

I recently adopted Zoey 101 wiki, and I need help programming templates and making wiki pages. Is there a way to program a wiki page so that it works as a community page, and a way to program a new template? --Dimes Are 4Ever 01:22, May 19, 2011 (UTC)

i cannot see the edit box or headline PLEASE HELP. Not even TIMEOIN could fix it, and he's a god! Edit

Hi, im LukaSlayR13, and my problem is that when i go to edit on SkyrimWiki (not that it matters where...) and the white box (like the one these words are in) isnt there, and the header/ headline (like the above) isnt there either. i can usethe code view but due to the lack of code knowledge in my brain i dont use it. Also, on Blogs and Blog posts, i cannot use the "preview" or "publish" buttons, even IF (that is if) the box (usually only the header) appears. I NEED to help my fellow Wikians and i have been de-ranked by 3 positions already due to this problem. Please help my lingering soul....

Test Tool

How about registered users have a new ability: Create Test. So you can create a test about anything related to your wiki topic and have actions such as select and then submit and see how much you've got correct or wrong. Sound interesting?

Search box text Edit

I was wondering how to change the words displayed in the search bar. Rather than have it say "Search this wiki" I want it to say "Search the Net" (related to my wiki). Please help. Teenbat - God of Blood 01:40, August 20, 2012 (UTC)

I’m a little confused, TeenBat. If you change the text in the search box to say “Search the Net” instead of “Search this wiki”, it will not be searching the net; it will only be searching the local wiki. The text you are proposing would be misleading, inaccurate, and incorrect. — SpikeToronto 04:01, August 21, 2012 (UTC)
Its MediaWiki:Tooltip-search. But remember what Spike said.  Ultimate Supreme talk · wiki I · wiki II  06:41, August 21, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. I don't mean it to be misleading. Anyone who is using the wiki would understand. It's the Ender's Game Wiki, and 'The Nets' are used in those novels quite often. Teenbat - God of Blood 01:18, August 22, 2012 (UTC)
And anyway, I made it so it would say "Search the Philotic Web". Teenbat - God of Blood 01:23, August 22, 2012 (UTC)

"Locking" Wiki?Edit

Hello! I would like to ask if it is possible to make it so nobody may contribute to your wiki? unless? they are an Administrator. Thanks.

F960 (Pikadex) (talk) 22:52, November 25, 2012 (UTC)

Hmm... Well, firstly this isn't the right place for this kinda question. Please use Forum:Support Requests in future. Why do you want your wiki locked? This isn't the right attitude for wiki-editing. However, if your wiki is under extreme attack from IPs Wikia staff will lock the editing of said wiki to only let logged in users edit. This can be attempted via Special:Contact/general and will only be temporary. On the other hand, Wikia isn't a personal web-site hosting service; if that is your aim you will have more luck achieving that on a dedicated web hosting service.

The links to the old forum should be updated and link to the new one, however, there are now 3 support forums for different subjects. Should it include links to all 3, only to the root forum, or not be changed at all?

ContentsEdit

How do i put contents in wikis like this one:

Untitled2`1e

Is it in templates? or is it only in a specific page?

SmoshFan101 (talk) 07:22, June 6, 2013 (UTC)

oops,i knew it already now, you can do it by putting _ _ T O C _ _ (NO SPACES)

SmoshFan101 (talk) 07:37, June 6, 2013 (UTC)

The Table of Contents will appear automatically (without forcing it) if you have enough headers (big text, like "Contents" just above) on your page. In the future, please take questions like this to the forums. Elecbullet (talk) 11:14, June 6, 2013 (UTC)

Search Bar Edit

Hi, I was wondering if there is a way to make the search bar on a wiki a little different, such as incasing it in a cloud. Thanks. --IStoleThePies | Message Wall | Contributions 22:55, June 6, 2013 (UTC)

Links At Bottom Don't Work Edit

Broken Links

The links at the Bottom of the Help Contents don't point to the right places; they go to blank pages in my own wiki, rather than Comm Central, which I think is where they're supposed to go.

Same here. It's something to do with the #NewWindowLink parser function and the page being fetched from CC. I did a test of said parser function on a wiki and it works fine on ordinary pages. If this wasn't happening before the 1st, then it's something to do with this revision that dumped the, so-called, "ugly URLs". ;) Starfleet Academy (Messages) 04:52, June 15, 2013 (UTC)
This should fix it. Report back in a day or so when the cache clears if it doesn't. Rappy @Wikia 06:24, June 15, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks Rappy, and will do. :) Starfleet Academy (Messages) 02:48, June 16, 2013 (UTC)

Community Forum HelpEdit

I've been trying to work on my wiki's Forum (metalstorm.wikia.com) and for some reason when I try to add a new topic to Help desk and my general discussion page (which I later deleted because I thought I did something wrong) it comes up with:

Badtitle

The requested page title was invalid, empty, or an incorrectly linked inter-language or inter-wiki title. It may contain one or more characters that can't be used in titles.

Return to MetalStorm Wiki.


Please help, and thank you for helping.

I've found out what my problem is. Nevermind. --SpartanVenator117 (talk) 20:29, July 25, 2013 (UTC)

EditsEdit

How could I see how many edits I've made to the wiki? Aside from the number on my personal profile, that is. ネクロ (Necro) TALK 03:40, October 25, 2013 (UTC)

Title EditingEdit

Hi, is it possible to edit titles of articles?

Cheers. 01Salty (talk) 04:58, January 18, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, click the little down arrow next to the edit button and select rename. Kiwichris (talk) 06:29, February 21, 2014 (UTC)

Image adding errorEdit

I got the following error message trying to add a message to a wiki. I was told to report it.

Could not create directory "mwstore://swift-backend/spiderman-films/images/d/d8". <a href="/index.php?title=Special:Contact&wpContactProblem=Bug:Directory+permission+error">Please report the above error using this form</a>

Any ideas why and/or what to do? Kiwichris (talk) 06:27, February 21, 2014 (UTC)

Source to Visual Edit

Can't change to Visual while editingEdit

Whenever I try to edit my wiki's Main Page, it automatically goes to Source mode, but I'm not very good when it comes to Source mode, so I try to change to Visual, but this pops up: "Rich test editing has been disabled because the page contains complex mode". How do I go to Visual mode and does this mean that if I want to switch to Visual mode, I need to delete everything?

Missdisneylandninja (talk) 19:31, February 28, 2014 (UTC)Missdisneylandninja

The current RTE editor of Wikia is unable to work with pages containing complex wikitext, so if you see this error, you can only use Source mode. However, Wikia is currently testing the new VisualEditor, being developed in conjunction with the Wikimedia Foundation—the organization behind Wikipedia and a multitude of other projects—which should be able to handle these cases as well.
