How do I put a message at the top of my wiki?

Harry Timon 16:20, October 24, 2009 (UTC)

This can be done by editing MediaWiki:Sitenotice, see Help:Site notice for details.


I saw some sites with "Points" for users when theyadded stuff. How do I do that?

I saw that on the right side of a page extra information. How do I do that?

How do I make my own templates?

plz answer me, i need alot of help.

--Spedster777 20:57, October 24, 2009 (UTC)

The points feature isn't available any more. Read Help:Templates for more information about creating templates. Tedjuh10 - Talk 20:01, October 25, 2009 (UTC)

I'm unable to contribute

Hi, I'm already registered with Wikia but I can't create a new article. I'll put everything in and then when I click Save, it just brings me to a blank "Special Page" called "Create Article". Is there a reason behind this?

  • If you are using the new wiki editor, you may not. It may be a glitch. Email wikia and they might be able to sort it out.

Follow up question:

  • I have been editing wikia since October and have over 4000 edits on several wikias. I am still unable to edit any of these help pages on this wiki, which is incredibly frustrating. Why, and how can I fix this? Anno1404 01:34, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
My user rights are: Autoconfirmed users, Users according to my preferences page, and I still cannot edit here.
Help:User_access_levels#All_users states:
"Anyone can read the wiki as well as create new pages and edit unprotected pages, including users without a user account."
Are all of the article pages on this wiki protected now?
When I attempt to edit these help pages, I get this message:
Please note: The Help namespace is semi-protected due to Shared Help.
You do not have permission to edit pages in the Help namespace.

Inter-subpage linking

I'm creating a template/set of templates - We have 3 similar but very separate pages associated with each article. They are:

  • Main
  • Main/Subpage1
  • Main/Subpage2

The template(s) sit at the top of each page and display links to the different pages on the same subject:

  • Main-to-subpage links are easy
  • Subpage-to-main links I can do (a link to "../")
  • Subpage-subpage links... I can't figure that one out. Can you suggest anything?

Whoops - wasn't as difficult as I thought - link to ../subpage1 will do it. Simples!

unable to edit main space pages again

this is really ridiculous, I cannot edit main space pages again. I was supposedly okay-ed a while ago. With a confirmation of my e-mail, the edits I have, and the amount of time I have edited.

there are only 351 pages in this wiki, which can easily be monitored by the community without blocking most good faith editors. Anno1404 14:41, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Help Index

I think it might be very HELPFUL if the help index is listed in the front help page instead of being listed in tiny letters on the bottom of the help sub-pages. This will insure that new users can quickly find the help they are seeking instead of pressing different buttons hoping to find the right right subject and wasting time. It's not a hard thing to do and will save time and effort. Talk 19:42, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

I don't mind the tiny letters, I just want a link to Help:Index from the first help page instead of having to click one of the buttons first. Duskey(talk) 20:33, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

This is a question for your Wiki's admins, not here. Anyway, I think you want to use the Template:Userbox that's on your wiki. If you don't know how to use templates, then you need to spend time reading some Wiki how-to docs. --GrantB 20:10, September 14, 2010 (UTC)

Leave infobox fields blank?

Hi, I'm wondering how to leave a field in an infobox blank. I know everyone just says don't put anything there, but that's not working... for example, on this template: [1], if I didn't want to include a "Faction" field on a certain page but still leave it on the template so other pages could have a Faction field, how would I do that? Any help would be greatly appreciated!--Tiptup Jr. 06:23, December 6, 2010 (UTC)

You do it by placing each field in the infobox within an #if: statement. The #if: statement first verifies whether the field has been passed to the infobox; if so, then the field is displayed, otherwise nothing is shown. Check w:c:pt.onepiece:Predefinição:Personagens for a live example. Note that the #if: uses pipes to separate its elements; the parser will confuse these pipes (which belong to the #if:) with the pipes used to define the table. So, within an #if: statement, to specify a pipe that belongs to the table you must use {{!}} instead. -- 019mgq 13:12, December 6, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you so much! After tinkering around some, I've got it to work to my advantage... I had to do quite a lot searching and I still couldn't find an answer to that, so once again- Thank you. :) --Tiptup Jr. 21:52, December 6, 2010 (UTC)

Header Problem

Hi, I'm an admin over on the Ōkami Wiki and right now we're having some problems with the header image on the site. The image is located here. It's exactly the same as it has always been but recently it has begun to appear incorrectly on all the pages. Just look here and you will see what I mean. The whole image is there but right at the bottom is what appears to be the top of the image repeated. Any help would be greatly appreciated--Soul reaper 08:34, February 10, 2011 (UTC)

Hi, im LukaSlayR13, and my problem is that when i go to edit on SkyrimWiki (not that it matters where...) and the white box (like the one these words are in) isnt there, and the header/ headline (like the above) isnt there either. i can usethe code view but due to the lack of code knowledge in my brain i dont use it. Also, on Blogs and Blog posts, i cannot use the "preview" or "publish" buttons, even IF (that is if) the box (usually only the header) appears. I NEED to help my fellow Wikians and i have been de-ranked by 3 positions already due to this problem. Please help my lingering soul....

How about registered users have a new ability: Create Test. So you can create a test about anything related to your wiki topic and have actions such as select and then submit and see how much you've got correct or wrong. Sound interesting?

I’m a little confused, TeenBat. If you change the text in the search box to say “Search the Net” instead of “Search this wiki”, it will not be searching the net; it will only be searching the local wiki. The text you are proposing would be misleading, inaccurate, and incorrect. — SpikeToronto 04:01, August 21, 2012 (UTC)
Its MediaWiki:Tooltip-search. But remember what Spike said.  Ultimate Supreme talk · wiki I · wiki II  06:41, August 21, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. I don't mean it to be misleading. Anyone who is using the wiki would understand. It's the Ender's Game Wiki, and 'The Nets' are used in those novels quite often. Teenbat - God of Blood 01:18, August 22, 2012 (UTC)

"Locking" Wiki?

Hello! I would like to ask if it is possible to make it so nobody may contribute to your wiki? unless? they are an Administrator. Thanks.

F960 (Pikadex) (talk) 22:52, November 25, 2012 (UTC)

Hmm... Well, firstly this isn't the right place for this kinda question. Please use Forum:Support Requests in future. Why do you want your wiki locked? This isn't the right attitude for wiki-editing. However, if your wiki is under extreme attack from IPs Wikia staff will lock the editing of said wiki to only let logged in users edit. This can be attempted via Special:Contact/general and will only be temporary. On the other hand, Wikia isn't a personal web-site hosting service; if that is your aim you will have more luck achieving that on a dedicated web hosting service.

The links to the old forum should be updated and link to the new one, however, there are now 3 support forums for different subjects. Should it include links to all 3, only to the root forum, or not be changed at all?

Same here. It's something to do with the
  1. NewWindowLink parser function and the page being fetched from CC. I did a test of said parser function on a wiki and it works fine on ordinary pages. If this wasn't happening before the 1st, then it's something to do with this revision that dumped the, so-called, "ugly URLs". ;) Starfleet Academy (Messages) 04:52, June 15, 2013 (UTC)

Source to Visual

Can't change to Visual while editing

Whenever I try to edit my wiki's Main Page, it automatically goes to Source mode, but I'm not very good when it comes to Source mode, so I try to change to Visual, but this pops up: "Rich test editing has been disabled because the page contains complex mode". How do I go to Visual mode and does this mean that if I want to switch to Visual mode, I need to delete everything?

Missdisneylandninja (talk) 19:31, February 28, 2014 (UTC)Missdisneylandninja

The current RTE editor of Wikia is unable to work with pages containing complex wikitext, so if you see this error, you can only use Source mode. However, Wikia is currently testing the new VisualEditor, being developed in conjunction with the Wikimedia Foundation—the organization behind Wikipedia and a multitude of other projects—which should be able to handle these cases as well.

How do I add country flag icons to a Wikia I wish to create?

Very simple: I want to add country flag icons to a Wikia table I am creating.

I know NOTHING about coding, etc., so when I went to look up how to add COUNTRY FLAGS to my wikia, nothing made sense to me, and I just kept getting roundabout answers on how to do things.

I AM HOPING that someone can help me add country flag icons to a Wikia page in VERY SIMPLE terms? I checked the guide on the dev.wikia page, but got confused when it said to add a JavaScript? WHERE do I add this JavaScript? If someone could help me walk through this process in VERY SIMPLE TERMS, I'd really appreciate it, thank you!

I'm going to reply here because that's how talkpages usually work and because everybody should know the answer if asked in a public place like this, but anybody feel free to put it elsewhere to notify the author.
Only images with their hosts defined in MediaWiki:External image whitelist, which is only editable by Staff, can be embedded directly into articles by simply putting the link to them. For example, full URLs to images on Wikia's servers will embed like that. On Community Central, links to Imgur images will embed like that as well, because that's defined in the external image whitelist.
You can request changes to the external image whitelist through Special:Contact/general, but Staff are very strict about it are usually only allow embeds from trusted image-hosting sites, such as Imgur or Photobucket, because images on there are sure to undergo image review, so it is very unlikely you'll get a permission to embed images from

Changing from the Community Builder Skin to the Oasis Skin


I was creating the Cartoonia Wiki when suddenly the "Use Community Builder" message showed up, I got interested in it but I found out it didn't had the same features as regular Wikis. I somehow can't switch it to the usual style that most wikis have, and, whenever I use Special:Contact, I kept getting the same message saying "Is there a specific reason why you want to change the wiki to the old layout?" And after a FEW months, THEY DIDN'T EVEN CHANGE IT!

If you can PLEASE change it to the usual style that regular wikis have, that'd be appreciated. If you can't, delete it (because I wanted to start it all over again and re-create it with the old wiki style that most wikis have) and have me be able to re-create it over again!

Guko Quests bugs

I had just gotten the seventh dragon ball and went to guko to gain the quest. once I had gotten the quest it performed the first of two bugs being the incorrect quest file bugs. instead of saying the 100 block damage, take damage, and do damage points it showed a way higher amount then before. This has happened to me before when I did the quest for reaper and all I had to do was reload my game and then was able to get the correct amount for the quest. So it happened to me again and I decided to do it again but instead of the quest changing it completely deleted and I lost all my dragon balls and cannot ask for the quest again. It had taken me six hours to gain the dragon balls from the crap and inconsistent spawn rate of the dragon balls. I really don't want to do it again and it has just put me off the game for now. I wish for this bug to be fixed so this does not happen to anyone else. I also wish to gain the quest or get Broly as that was what I was going for and think I need a break from all this crappy bugs and glitches.

Deleting Things You Made

Please increase the navigation hitbox

The Problem: The cursor: pointer; is suggestive of a clickable div, when it's actually only the 80×70 icons that link to other help pages. This is hugely misleading, and ends up being a point-and-click game – Not something I'd expect from a help page. --BryghtShadow (talk) 16:50, 12 April 2022 (UTC)
