On every page on your wiki you'll see a background. Below you can read how you can change/customize your background.

Standard background

There are some basic backgrounds available on Special:ThemeDesigner. Choose one of them and save your edit.

Make a background

You can use all pictures for your background. Mostly it's nice if you customize also the image you want to use. You can do this in many programs offline and online.

Requirements for your picture

The picture has to be less than 300 KB. Also it has to be a PNG, JPG or GIF file.

Where can I change/customize

Go on your wiki to the page "Special:ThemeDesigner". You can find it when you type it in in the search box 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 "Customize" section. Click on graphic and upload an image. Don't forget to save your edit. Maybe it takes some minutes before it'll work.

It's not working

This can have many causes:

  • The requirements of the picture are wrong
  • You clicked not on "Save"
  • Wikia is busy withit
  • You're not on the page Special:ThemeDesigner

Better quality of the background

If you want to have a background with a picture which is more than 150 KB please message me on my message wall to get the code for it.

If you have questions about customizing the background 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.
