How do you even make a wiki, I'm not sure how but i would like to find out.
What's on your mind?
I've been experimenting with wikitext on my wiki, which is on the legacy platform (not UCP). I've noticed something odd while editing wiki pages.
Recently, because I edit only in source mode, I changed my preferred editor to "Classic rich-text editor (where available)". This allows me to quickly switch back and forth between visual and source editing whenever I need to.
However, sometimes I like to use the VisualEditor, and I select it from the drop-down menu next to the Edit button on any pages that I'd like to use the visual editor with.
After a few days doing this, I notice that the dropdown now displays Classic Editor instead of VisualEditor. Clicking on the normal Edit button, it brings me to the VisualEditor instead!
Looking in my preferences, something happened that caused the preferred editor to get switched to VisualEditor, even though the last time I set it it was in Classic editor.
Is this due to some tracking that will change your preferred editor if you start using another one more often?
I made a wiki for myself and after I was inactive for many days, it's gone. Was it deleted? I want it back, if it is okay.
I’m trying to change my profile pic but I can’t. Plz help
Hello Everyone, I Was Wondering How I Can Make A Talk Page On My Wiki. I Looked It Up And I Was Not Able To Find Anything. Here Is What I'm Talking About
I want to create a BalanCity wiki, but I have created two wikis prior, is there a maximum number of wikis? If so, is it cumulative? If so, are deleted wikis counted?
I want to make a wiki specifically for my friend and I. It will include all of our oc's for books, etc. Is there a way to make that wiki private to my friend and I? If not, is there a way to make it so that only approved people can edit the wiki, and everyone else can only view it?
I accidently reported a reply that I meant to delete.
What'll happen now, since the reply wasn't bad
I decided to put this up on the Community Central's discussions before I reported a bug to Fandom in case there is a logical explanation/fix to this.
On this wiki (still in Legacy w/DIscussions), and only that wiki, the screen is "indented" like so:
This occurs on every article page (the right rail isn't what's wrong by the way, it's the left side). Everyone else on the wiki says that it appears fine for them.
This also affects things like the Fan Feed:
I cleared my common.js on that wiki, and then my cache. (I didn't have any other personal code pages like that, and I assume that it is not a problem with my global CSS or JS, as it only occurs on the above-mentioned wiki, but feel free to check them out anyway.)
This ONLY happens on my Chromebook (the only other device I've tested is my Windows (10) computer).
But again, what baffles me is the fact that it
Only happens on my Chromebook

If this isn't a good place to post this, then (sorry, and) can you redirect me to where I should go? (Again, I chose this instead of using Special:Contact because of the fact that it seems very specific to me, but if I don't find an answer here, I'll be contacting them on Zendesk.)
Thanks in advance!
Can I know how to do this? I see it fascinating when people have like certain links to a website to only have that color on every website in the wiki you see it. (Example: Picture with "Lyrical Lily" with a pink color link)
Also, can I know how to place words or special boxes when hovering on top of a picture or word? (example: hover on the circles in the picture in this link)
I was looking around the site and I couldn't find anything that really answered my question, so...
Is it acceptable to create a wiki for an unpublished 'personal' project? I'm wondering because it's really difficult to keep the worldbuilding and character content together in other places, and a wiki seems like a good place to keep it sorted out. I put 'personal' in quotes because it is an unofficial 'spin-off' to an existing fandom and I would be open to collaborations.
I understand that it would be accessible to edit by other users, but that I would also be able restrict editing on certain pages. Would it work if I restricted editing on some pages but left some available to edit? If not, I can always look for a different worldbuilding site that is completely for personal use.
Thanks for your help!
I don't know where to go to talk about this, but after migration, the Category Exhibition layout has been disabled for my wiki. Is this permanent?
How do you find this “Edit Track”
I accidentally chose Spanish when creating it.
Hi, I have a question.
Is it possible to change my year of birth which I set on the register page?
When I ever I edit my adopting pages on visual editor and click the save page button and then edit the summary of the reason why I edit the page and then click the save page button its popup with an error message said this: The modification you tried to make was aborted by an extension hook. Why?
This thread was started in 2016 and the last reply prior to yours was in 2018. Unless the last reply was within the past few months, it is considered good etiquette to just start a new thread. In this case, I have done that for you by replying here instead of in the original thread.
There are two aspects to categories. First is the list of pages that belong to the category and second is the category page itself. To "permanently" remove a category from a wiki, you need to remove that category from all of the pages that have it and, if the category page exists, delete the category page.
Start by going to "Category:Name" on your wiki where "Name" is the name of the category. For example, if you have a bunch of pages in the category "Characters", go to "Category:Characters". If it shows a message along the lines of "there is no text on this page", then the page does not exist and you do not need to delete it. If it does not have a message like that, then click the down arrow next to the edit button. This should open a dropdown menu with the option to delete the page. Delete the page.
After you have delete the page, go back to it. You will see that the list of pages is still there. That is because the wiki automatically adds the list whether or not the category page exists. To remove the pages from the category and thus make the list disappear as well, go to each of those pages and remove the category. The way you remove the category differs depending on which editor mode you are using. If you are using source mode, scroll all the way to the bottom of the page. You should see a link that looks like this:
Again, "Name" being whatever the category name is. Delete that link. If you are using visual mode, click the gear icon near the right of the top editing bar. This should open a dropdown menu with categories being one of the options. Click that option and a pop-up dialog box should show. You should see a bunch of boxes with the name of a category in each one. Find the one with the category you want to remove and click it. Another pop-up should appear with a trashcan icon in the top right. Click the trashcan to remove the category. Lastly, in the top right of larger pop-up, there should be a button to apply the change. Click that and you should be taken back to the editor. Then click the save button in the editor to save the page without the category.
I don't know coding and I might need someone to help me with that.
