Part 10. Contributing to a Wiki: Wordmarks

On a wiki you have always a wordmark. There are two different wordmarks: Text and graphic wordmarks. If you upload a graphic wordmark it's better if the name of the wiki is in it.

Where can I change?

Go on your wiki to the page "Special:ThemeDesigner". You can find it when you type it in in the search box on your wiki or in the url behind the name of your wiki. Another way to find is to use the bar on the bottom of your screen. Click on "Admin" and you go to "Special:AdminDashboard". You see on the general page the link to Theme Designer. After that you go to the "Wordmark" section.

Text Wordmark

You can change the text here, but it's also possible to change the font and the size of the text. If you've changed it to your preferences don't forget to save the edit.

Graphic Wordmark

It's also possible to add a graphic wordmark. Brows to the picture you want to use and click after that on "Upload". Dont' forget to save after changing.

Problems with Picture

This can have the following causes:

  • The file is not a .PNG file.
  • The file is bigger than 250px X 65px.
  • Wikia is busy with it.
  • You didn't save.

Back to Text Wordmark

If you have a graphic wordmark on your wiki and you want to change it back to a text wordmark, you have to scroll over the picture. Now you'll see on the right top the text "Remove". Click on it and edit the text wordmark section. Don't forget to save your edit.

If you have questions about wordmarks or want help with something please go to my message wall to ask me about it. You can also ask staff, ask an admin on this wiki, go to the forum or ask in the chat.
