Special Wiki Code

Signing Comments

It's helpful to sign comments made on disscussion/talk pages so later on we know who left the comment and when it was made. Clicking the Signature button on the edit toolbar will automatically insert wiki code that will be translated into a link to your user page and the current time when you click the Save Page button. Alternatively you can insert the code yourself:


What Links Here

You can create a hard link to the Whatlinkshere function. Use either a particular article name, or you can use a variable. The primary benefit to using a whatlinkshere function as opposed to just listing items, is in the future when more items are added to the wiki, a whatlinkshere will automatically reflect the new additions. A static list will depend on being correctly updated, something that may or may not happen.

[[:Special:Whatlinkshere/Pack (White)|Vendors that sell White Packs.]]



You can create a wiki link to a search for a particular term or variable. For example to create a link that searches for the term Geomancy:


For more than one word, separate terms with +, such as:


You can also use variables such as:


Note that a search term that exactly matches the name of an existing article will resolve to that article, not a search.

Magic Words

Word Description
__NOTOC__ Hides ToC on the current page.
__FORCETOC__ Forces the table of contents to appear.
__TOC__ Places a ToC here (overriding any __NOTOC__). Multiple ToCs are no longer supported. If __TOC__ is used multiple times, only the first occurrence causes a ToC to appear.

{|align=right cellpadding=10
| __TOC__

Place the table of contents into a floating table on the right side, in other words the table of contents appears the same, just to the right side with text flowing normally alongside on the left. You can adjust the alignment, cellpadding (whitespace around the ToC), color, etc if desired. For simple usage, you can use {{RightToC}}.
__NOEDITSECTION__ Hides the edit links beside headings. Also, will no longer automatically edit only one section at a time when double- or right-clicking a heading (if you have that feature enabled in your preferences)
__NEWSECTIONLINK__ [MW1.7+] Gives a "+"-link next to the edit-tab to make a new section on a non-talk page (post-a-comment feature).
Don't perform the content language conversion (character and phase) in article display; for example, Chinese zh with zh_cn, zh_tw, zh_sg, zh_hk.
__NOGALLERY__ [MW1.7+] This magic word allows images in category pages to be displayed as inline links instead of gallery.
Like __NOCC__ but affecting article title only.
__END__ Allows for trailing whitespace to be included in the page save (does not seem to work anymore).
__START__ This magic word has no effect but an ID in MagicWord.php (MAG_START).
__HIDDENCAT__ When placed anywhere on a category page, this magic word causes that category not to appear in the horizontal box near the bottom of every member page. See Help:Category#Hidden_categories for further detail.

HTML Characters

Some characters are either reserved in HTML or are special characters used by the wiki parser engine. To display these characters while sidestepping their special uses you can use special codes.

Character Code Description
" &quot; quotation mark
' &apos; apostrophe
& &amp; ampersand
< &lt; less-than
> &gt; greater-than
© &copy; copyright
  &nbsp; non-breaking space
&#32; space
! &#33; exclamation mark
" &#34; quotation mark
# &#35; number sign
$ &#36; dollar sign
% &#37; percent sign
& &#38; ampersand
' &#39; apostrophe
( &#40; left parenthesis
) &#41; right parenthesis
* &#42; asterisk
+ &#43; plus sign
: &#58; colon
; &#59; semicolon
[ &#91; left square bracket
\ &#92; backslash
] &#93; right square bracket
{ &#123; left curly brace
| &#124; vertical bar
} &#125; right curly brace
~ &#126; tilde


See for an exhaustive list.

{{PAGENAME}} - Name of the article where the variable is used.

{{FULLPAGENAME}} - Name of the article where the variable is used including the namespace if any.
                   For example, "File:Image.jpg", "MediaWiki:Sidebar", and "Creatures". The 
                   PAGENAME variable would by contrast give "Image.jpg", "Sidebar", and "Creatures".

{{PAGESINCATEGORY:categoryname}} - Total number of pages in the category specified. This is 
                                   an expensive function and should not be used many times on 
                                   the same page.
