Question/Answer format vs. Formal HeadingsEdit

Recently, Elocina has been changing the headings on help pages away from the question and answer format. Personally, I preferred the question answer format because it seemed easier to understand when there was something you needed help with. Thoughts? The 888th Avatar (Talk) 13:40, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Wikia on History List Edit

This isn't a question regarding Wikia per se, but one related to it; I was wondering if anyone familiar with how the site's pages are set up to an advanced web language level could answer this. Why does it seem that Wikia pages seem to have such a hard time sticking to a web browser's History list? --DanMat6288 20:13, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

We are not exactly sure what you mean - you can't find pages you've visited on Wikia in your browser's history? This isn't an issue we've come across before. What browser are you using? Kirkburn (talk) @Wikia 13:37, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Formatting Edit

Hello, I am Robobrain. Recently I was working on formatting on some pages of the Submachine wiki through the use of columns, but the default dimensions were not the formatting I was going for. Is there a way to specify the dimensions of a column, and if there is, could you please tell me how to code it? Thank you very much. Robobrain 23:35, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Something like style="width:25%;"? For example:
{| border="1" style="width:30em;"
| style="width:25%;" | Column 1
| style="width:75%;" | Column 2
Column 1 Column 2
Is that what you're looking for? Kirkburn (talk) @Wikia 12:06, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Where can I find the Text Animation Section? Edit

The title says it all.--Akamia(Talk)(Look what I've been doing!) 00:55, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Text animation? If you mean stuff like marquees and blinking text - I'm sorry, I can't help you out. You really should avoid text animation. Kirkburn (talk) @Wikia 11:29, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Special pages guide Edit

Would be useful. I'm trying to find the template page that gets automatically posted whenever a new user makes a contribution, but I'm having a poor time actually locating it. Suggestions to this would be welcome User:Zurgat/Sig 08:52, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Info boxes Edit

Hi. I was wondering how I might go about getting character info boxes for 90210pedia. Any advice would be appreciated. -- James26 03:28, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Ads issueEdit

Could someone please dump those HORRENDOUSLY irritating boxing ads? I've been turning my attention to anwywhere-but-here more lately because of it and I prefer wowwiki. They must be stopped! Knock those SOBs out!!!!!!!! My husband feels even more strongly. It has become a place where I may still come but I leave ASAP because it's so annoying to be in game with all that NOISE coming from wowwiki in the background. Enough!!!!!

Hi, you should take this issue to wowwiki administrators here is a wiki that gets the content translcuded in other wikis like wowwiki so that they dont need to have to create help pages and can depend on a pool that will benefit 9000+ wikis.
On another note, if you create an account here at wikia, you can enjoy the advantages of surfing any wikia wiki ad-less and you dont even have to supply an email (the advantage of putting your emails is if you lose the password it can be email you

I dont know how to change the logo on my site. I read the help on how to do it and it didnt really help because it didnt work. can you explain how to do this? ~ Mali-chan - AnythingAsian

You read and followed Help:Logo? Logos can sometimes take a few minutes to appear - where were you trying this? Kirkburn (talk) @Wikia 15:11, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
after i upload it where do i put it? that page isnt helping me. ~ Mali-chan - AnythingAsian
With the logo, as long as it's at the correct location (File:Wiki.png), then you don't need to go anything else. For the anythingasian wiki, that means uploading the logo to Kirkburn (talk) @Wikia 14:57, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
thank you so much. :D ~ Mali-chan AnythingAsian

User List Edit

When a new user joing they dont show up on the Local User List on my Wikia. Does that mean there is something wrong? Or what? ~ Mali-chan AnythingAsian

The default settings for the user list is to show only users that have edited 5 or more time. You can change this via a dropdown option on the listusers page. Kirkburn (talk) @Wikia 13:56, 11 June 2009 (UTC)


My name is Óðinn-Hermoðr de Warenghien, aka Gwyonbach writer of Rouen in Normandy. I need your help to change the map (Territories and voyages of the Vikings) who turns out to be false on the Viking sites and L'Anse aux Meadows in Dutch, and Norwegian (bokmål). For the correction and / or administrator of the site Laaknor too blunt and obvious lack of knowledge on historical and geographical Normandy (my country), blocking my messages. If you could be kind enough to intervene with Laaknor by Norsk (bokmål) and ask him to compare his bad card, with those found in french, English, German or Israeli, who have had the intelligence to m listen and change their erroneous map for a more accurate, I would be grateful. If only for the seriousness, which claims to Wikipedia. Thank you in advance!

What links here? Edit

I'm starting to get a little bit concerned that useful wikia tools like "What links here?" are being replaced by uninformative features like blogs. I mean, if blogs help, fine, but do we have to make it harder to edit the actual wikis?Glorious CHAOS! 08:37, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Check article footers for whatlinkshere now. We're not removing anything, just organising stuff into more sensible locations. Kirkburn (talk) @Wikia 17:50, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
That makes sense then. I always forget there's stuff down there, thanks.Glorious CHAOS! 19:12, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Name ChangeEdit

Hello, I've looked everywhere on this site for any advice on how to successfully change my Username. Not give it a nickname or anything, but change the username itself. If you have any idea on how to do this, please tell me. --User:Ramsey 05:58, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

It's not an option. What you can do is redirect your user pages to a new account.--AB 13:37, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Deleting Wiki Edit

How would I be able to delete my wiki ? I dont want someone else to take it, I want it gone please. ~ Mali-chan AnythingAsian

The best way to try this sort of thing is via Special:Contact. Wjxhuang, the 888th Avatar {Talk} 07:17, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

My Wiki was Deleted Edit

I really worked extremely hard on my Entertainment Wiki Page, and it was closed. How do I get all my stuff I had on it back so I can save it to a different page? They did have a thing on there, where I tried to go to the main "Wikia Entertainment" page and it said closed, but where you can click "here" to receive your content. I tried doing that, and I have no idea of what any of those things on there were. I really need someone to help figure out how to get that page back I created. Thank you,

Holidayroad92 02:58, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

I suggest contacting Special:Contact with the name of the wiki, and they should be able to help out. Kirkburn (talk) @Wikia 18:45, 7 August 2009 (UTC)
I've been told it was a mistake by Wikia. Someone mis-clicked, according to Sannse. Enjoy. :) Wjxhuang, the 888th Avatar {Talk} 23:39, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Changing wiki logo? Edit

Is there any way for me to change logo on [TR Wiki]? I have read all help and all talk about it, even what was mentioned on this page. For some reason the logo image seems to be Wiki_wide.png, not Wiki.png. I changed the first first, the other later, both show up correctly in files section but I still don't see any effect on the page. I was trying to trace all changes the wiki creator (which now seems to be quite inactive) made, even tried to check if he didn't change some css (doesn't look like he did) but did not find any clue what should I do to change it. I am admin on that wiki but am not member of any group, maybe that is the problem? --Kasuha TR 20:04, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

The filename ís Wiki.png, only this one sometimes takes up to an day to upload. So just upload it to Wiki.png and wait. Wiki wide is a different logo and not yet used. Tedjuh10 - Talk 23:13, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Wiki_wide is no longer used usually, but this wiki has set that file as the logo in Common.css which can be changed by an admin if needed (see the very end of that page). It used to be for the Quartz skin which is no longer in use. You can find more help on this at help:logo. Angela@Wikia (talk) 14:30, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Change page... Edit

Two questions:

How do I change the page type of a page (blank to character)?

How do I change the title of a page?

(P.S. I don't know here to sign so I did this...)
