    A Tour of Special Pages

    March 29, 2011 by Dopp


    Have you ever wondered how some editors find content quickly, track down obscure details with ease, and always know what to work on next? Well, it's not a secret super power. It's just Special Pages.

    Special Pages is a collection of useful lists and tools that can help you better manage a wiki. To find this collection, just go to [yourwikiname].wikia.com/wiki/Special:SpecialPages. You may also want to add a shortcut to Special Pages on your toolbar (which is the useful strip of links at the bottom of your screen). Just click the toolbar's "Customize" link, search for the "Special Pages" tool, select it, and Save.

    Depending on what kind of user you are, you may see different links on this page. Logged-in users see more than logged-out users, an…

    Here are the latest technical updates at Wikia. Keep in mind that our system updates happen every Wednesday, so we’re posting this on a Tuesday to give you advance notice. Also note that we change hundreds of tiny details every week, so these are just the highlights.


    • Going forward, all new English wiki will have Page Layout Builder enabled, and new entertainment wikis will have some starter layouts in the system. (Note: this change may go live today.)



    • When leaving a message on a Talk page, the “Subject/Headline” field now appears above the message, rather than below it. (Fix is already live.)
    • Page errors were displaying in IE9.
    • Image placeholders stopped allowing users to upload new images.
    • The TabView feature was causing system performance iss…

    • If the subject of your wiki has an official site with forums, you can link to your wiki to answer questions asked about the subject.
      • Use the same username on sites where you comment about your topic as your Wikia username.
      • Link to the best pages on your wiki when talking about your topic on other sites, but only to provide more info on something topic relevant and not as obvious advertising.
    • Add a link to your wiki in shared navigation templates on Community central. Here are some examples:
      • Template:ABCWikis - ABC network show wikis
      • Template:CNFooter - Cartoon Network show wikis
      • Template:Tabletop_RPG_wikis - Tabletop RPG wikis
      • Template:Wikia_Gaming_Footer - Well known video game wikis (make sure to read the talk page…

    Alright, here goes nothing. First off, Archive wiki was taken so I had to name it The Great Archive wiki. Anyway onto the point. I had this great idea, what about a wiki that's pages are solely about the users? So I checked that there was not one already made, and then made one. The articles are all about wikia users and their contributions. The thing is though, I can't make articles on users that I hardly know! Other than doing some research and get base points down, I can't really add much to people I don't even know. Like famous contributions. So I'm posting this blog on multiple wikis in the hopes that some users will answer my call and join me in making a wiki dedicated to the users of wikia. If you do decide to join, let everybody els…
