A special page is a part of the MediaWiki software that performs a specific function, and always begins with the prefix "Special:".

The "Special pages" link in the toolbox in the sidebar leads to Special:Specialpages, which lists all available functions in alphabetical order.

You can include some of these in other pages. See Help:Special page inclusion.
