The Main Page on any wiki is the page that can be accessed by clicking the wiki's logo. The Main Page is like the welcome mat of a wiki. It is the primary landing page for your readers. Keep in mind that first impressions count!


  • Example Wiki - mainpage

    The default main page after wiki creation

    If you've just created a new wiki, your main page is populated with default content, including the description of your wiki, a live feed of the latest activity on your wiki, and a placeholder for a photo.
  • You can change any part of this page by editing it. Simply click "Edit" at the top of the page.
  • We recommend that your Main Page include a short intro paragraph that tells your readers what your wiki is about and what people can find there.
  • We also recommend that you include links to your most important articles on your main page. This will help readers find their way to great content quickly.
  • Many wikis find that adding a slider to the Main Page is an attractive way to help users find great content. You can learn more about sliders at Help:Galleries and slideshows.
  • Be sure to give your main page a clean design. It doesn't need to be fancy -- it just needs to look nice! An easy way to do this is to use main page column tags.
