    Whose Desk is Whose?

    April 12, 2016 by Sannse



    Wikia is written by all sorts of fans. From Marvel fanatics to Trekkers to genealogy enthusiasts and more, everyone can find a place for their passion in the Home of Fandom. One of the best parts of working at Wikia is knowing that, like you, the staff in our office are also superfans. The fact that we're all fans of something is a big part of what motivates us to make Wikia such an awesome place for fans.

    Here in our San Francisco office, we display our passions on the "Wall of Fandom." This is…

    You won’t get a shiny diploma you can hang on your wall - but Wikia University is still a course worth going through. Maybe you’re nodding vigorously right now, because you’ve already completed every study track, and consider yourself an editing pro. But maybe you’re scratching your head instead, wondering what I’m talking about?


    Wikia University isn’t a real life campus somewhere (although that would be awesome!), but a series of short videos that teach you how to use Wikia. The videos are divi…

    You and Your Socks

    March 16, 2016 by Sannse

    Allow me to introduce to you User:Sanns sock. She's a pleasant enough sort of user, not very active on Wikia, but she's been around for a while. She's useful when something goes wrong and there's a need for some non-staff testing.

    Then there's User:Sanns bot. She's retired now, but used to do some work around Wikia every now and then. Just routine spelling corrections and other simple changes.

    There's also User:A user name with spaces, User:Sannsetestingagainandagain and, for some reason, User…

    On Wednesday, we were treated to a visit from Jimmy Wales, the co-founder of Wikia and Wikipedia, in our San Francisco office. When Jimmy co-founded Wikia, it started off as a broader spinoff of Wikipedia, one that would allow people to create their own wiki communities. He once said that if Wikipedia is the encyclopedia, then Wikia is the rest of the library. Now, Wikia is home to the greatest superfans in the world, and, with the launch of Fandom, it sits at the center of pop culture. So we w…

    Greetings Wikians! I’m very excited to announce a new feature today - Curated Main Pages on mobile devices.

    For most communities the main page is its single most viewed page. Four out of the top five pages on Wikia are main pages, in fact, and that makes sense — a search for “Star Wars wiki” is very likely to return the main page as the first result.

    Main pages on desktop are typically a large collection of content, galleries, templates, and design elements, representing each community very well.…

    The logged-in user experience offers a number of benefits on Wikia. Registered accounts have features like Notifications, Chat, and the ability to follow articles and discussions, just to name a few. In the coming months we’ll be working to highlight these benefits more and see what we can do to drive more readers and anonymous editors to create accounts. With more motivations and prompts to return to a community, a user with an account is much more likely to become an active contributor and d…

    Howdy howdy howdy, Wikians!

    Today we’re (choo-choo!) hopping on the mobile train. We have mobile app news and features to share. And oh my goodness these apps are incredibly popular.

    Wikia released the first five Community Apps in November of 2013. Simple premise: Wikians produce high-quality, engaging content, and apps are a good way collect and organize content for viewers. Since then, we’ve released over 100 iOS apps and more than 80 Android apps, with no end in sight. Combined, these apps surp…

    Hello Wikians! This week you’ll start to see something new at the top of article pages — buttons for sharing your community’s work via social media.

    These options will make it easier for both editors and readers to get your wikia’s expertly-crafted content out into the wider fan universe for your topic. Comments, likes, reblogs, and retweets can indicate how useful and relevant a page is for others. Some of those readers might even come visit and make some contributions of their own!



    We’re espec…

    Customization is an integral part of a wiki community and such styling sets apart a boring wiki from one that delivers the wow factor. Despite its importance, not every Admin knows how to go about editing their MediaWiki CSS pages. This blog outlines a brief summary of how to go about finding and maintaining CSS styling.


    Perhaps the biggest hurdle to jump in wiki styling is determining the appropriate CSS classes and selectors for the element you wish to modify. Generally you can find such infor…

    Editable Polls

    April 16, 2016 by Sinthorion

    This is another small wikicode trick, that can be very useful in some situations, but also allows poll result manipulation. It's a trick to make polls editable.

    Prerequisites for this guide are the knowledge of using and creating templates.


    If you don't know polls at all, here is a short introduction:

    Hi everyone. This blog's going to be a short guide on how best to attribute other people's work that you're importing to your wiki.


    Most wikis on Wikia are licensed under a CC-BY-SA license. This means that any original work on the wiki is free to be shared and adapted on other places that also use that license.

    Wikia's licensing page states "If you import text under a compatible license which requires attribution, you must, in a reasonable fashion (including by one of the attribution methods desc…
