Interwiki links to Gamepedia wikis

I want to know how to link to a Gamepedia wiki without having to use external links. Thanks! —Naista2002Talk

Every wiki should have the gphelp prefix to get to this wiki, where you can then use any prefix in Special:Interwiki which has the "forward" setting. E.g.: gphelp:goatsim:Space. That is also the only gamepedia wiki on there... so it's not actually very useful yet, but hopefully the rest can be added. MajrTalk

Thanks, didn't know where to search for interwiki prefixes. wikia:starwars:Bespin/Canon. --Naista2002Talk

A don't know that there are any plans to have all gamepedia wikis ever appear in the interwiki list. The list is not centralised so would have to be updated on every single wiki — Game widow (talk) 14:53, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Where to find help for scripting

I've gotten fairly good at simple editing processes; however, I am interested in something more dynamic but don't know where to look, or who, or even if a possible forum exists for discussion.

Are there dynamic mouseover commands that can be embedded in the script such that when the person mouses over something, it could modify some text color between some theme background and something visible, a form of invisible/visible text? Example... User chooses one of a multiple choice response, the (textcolor) response "Correct" or "Try Again" is changed from the default background to something visible.
I'm thinking specifically of the Lore section for Star Trek Online. If the responses "Correct" or "Try Again" were the same color as the background, they would be 'practically' invisible, then possibly a mouseover would dynamically modify the text color (temporarily) to make the text visible. That way instead of always seeing the correct answer in the third column, a person could hazard a guess and thus enable a feedback learning process. After all, no faster way to learn something than to try and realize you really already know it.
So, is any such dynamic scripting available for something like this, where could I learn about it or who could I ask? Thanks so much, in advance, for any consideration for help.--Cyberchip (talk) 14:38, 8 March 2016 (UTC)
You can create classes which behave differently on hover. You can play around with this in your personal css for any wiki (Preferences, Appearance tab, Custom css radio button). Also, for the STO wiki in particular, you should have a chat with oOeyesGame widow (talk) 14:44, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Gamepedia logo font

English SVG version

Russian SVG version

Hello, community. Can you help me? What the font is used in Gamepedia Help logo (Wiki.png) and in some videos as a title? ← Alex Great talk 14:21, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

I believe it's called Quicksand. --Alianin TC 14:36, 22 May 2016 (UTC)
Gamepedia uses Montserrat as well, not sure which one you mean — Game widow (talk) 15:46, 22 May 2016 (UTC)
Alianin, yeah, very similar. Thanks. I try to use it for Russian Gamepedia Help Wiki Logo. Because previous variant I did manually at Paint :D ← Alex Great talk 11:30, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

I created SVG version of logo. If you need it for something. ← Alex Great talk 12:35, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

And uploaded Russian variant. For archive history :D. I want use it in Russian section of Gamepedia Help Wiki (as png of course). ← Alex Great talk 12:47, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

Gamepedia Help Wiki font in Mobile

In Mobile version of website if you select hydradark skin, white text merges with the default white background of the page. ← Alex Great talk 10:03, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

Fixed! Thanks for pointing that out! --Alianin TC 20:13, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

trouble-shooting slideboxlightshow inside an if-statement

I'm creating an infobox for classes (referred to as "patrons") over at the Soda Dungeon wiki, called Template:Infobox_patron. Some classes have two appearances of light or dark skin, but some classes only have one appearance. Links are being blocked or I would link straight to it.

I'm trying to use some nested if-statements to determine whether the variables image1 (light skin) and image2 (dark skin) are present. If both are present, then I want the Extension:SlideBoxLightShow to juggle them on the page. If only one image variable was used, then I just want that image in the infobox. If nothing is present, then it includes the category "Infoboxes lacking images".

So far it works fine if only image1 variable is used. If image 2 variable is used, nothing is displayed. Any help is appreciated! Kraygor (talk) 22:48, 17 November 2016 (UTC)


Hi, on the pages I read on minecraft wiki, see I some ads even while I have PRO (usually have expired), how can I remove those, those are terrible and I are not interesed in the ads, I want to remove them completely, how do I? psl85 (Discussion | Contributions) 17:58, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

Hello! It appears your PRO subscription has expired. Looking at your editing this past month, you should receive an additional PRO comp today that will last 3 months. When you are not actively getting new PRO comps (which happen the 1st Tuesday of each month) you will see ads. CrsBenjamin (talk) Curseicon.png 18:16, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
@CrsBenjamin Can I do someting for the ads, or remove them using CSS? The ads thinking I are "junk" and I want to remove them. psl85 (Discussion | Contributions) 18:22, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
If you continue to be an active editor, you will receive PRO. If not, you will see ads on the site. Serving ads to users is how we pay for our staff, servers, and generally keep Gamepedia running. CrsBenjamin (talk) Curseicon.png 18:25, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
@CrsBenjamin:Okay, I see now that no ads is left, them has usually been removed or I has got PRO, thank you - psl85 (Discussion | Contributions) 18:44, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

Global Preferences and js/css pages

Hello everyone! I thinking that all Gamepedia wikis could have Global Preferences and global .sss and .js pages instead of all users need to go to their wiki and create local css/js pages, to easily have personal CSS or JS to all Gamepedia-Wikis, and here could all global CSS and JS user subpages be created, and I would also all users be notified with global sitenotice noticing that global CSS/JS be created to modify here and so, comments below. - psl85 (Discussion | Contributions) 17:00, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

There are some preferences that are global, these are noted by the presence of a globe icon by the preference in question. You can also use the @import function to load your CSS from other wikis and if you know JS as well, that's pretty easy to do anyway. --Pcj (T·C) 19:30, 4 July 2018 (UTC)
@Pcj:but I think that we could use global CSS/JS files instead of all users need to go to their CSS/JS subpages to create local stylation, global is better and all global CSS/JS could be created here - psl85 (Discussion | Contributions) 05:58, 5 July 2018 (UTC)

Main page is uneditable, but still says the game is in pre-alpha.

The game was fully released on 9/11/18. 😁 Tigerislagoona (talk) 16:41, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

User:Tigerislagoona, are you on the wrong wiki? This is the Help Wiki, designated to help new users and admins with editing and provide general information on Gamepedia, so it doesn't have anything to do with a game. :-)--Madminecrafter12 (talk) 00:26, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Two suggestions

Since all Gampedia sites currently display advertisements, I had this idea of introducing a paid membership option that site forum sites have. The idea is that paid members would not see any advertisements and also get access to forum or chat room just for subscribers. Another idea is that only subscribers and existing users that already have enhanced profiles would have the enhanced profile option, and subscription might also be a prerequisite for becoming an administrator, wiki guardian or bureaucrat.

Also, how about the this threadded discussions extension--Xanthipos (talk) 00:15, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

There is free PRO and a free accessible Slack, why do you want to pay for it?   GRASP logo.png MarkusRost (talk) 00:22, 5 February 2019 (UTC)
If that were paid, it would be a source of income and may help cover hosting costs. If the hosting costs enough for adds to be displayed to non-subscribers, than a subscriber option that costs money is quite reasonable as long as there are plenty of members who I) have a lot of spare money II) can work and III) are not on any unemployment-related benefits.--Xanthipos (talk) 00:33, 5 February 2019 (UTC)
I currently don't have much of an opinion regarding the subscription suggestion overall, but I would oppose making it a prerequisite for becoming an administrator, wiki guardian, or bureaucrat. These roles aren't granted as rewards or honors, but are rather a few extra tools that are given to users who could make good use of them, so to me it doesn't make sense for people to have to pay in order to have them.--Madminecrafter12 (talk) 04:14, 5 February 2019 (UTC)
Just to let you know, in the past PRO subscription was available for purchase, however this changed (my guess would be that there were too few purchases of it and it was not worth it). As to other propositions for subscription, this would basically make the wikis collapse. Paying for additional tools needed to keep the wiki a safe and useful place would NEVER work out. As an editor I'd quickly leave Gamepedia if I had to pay for my work on the wikis. This is why I love PRO program that rewards me, an active, working for otherwise free, contributor that makes Gamepedia earn their money. Frisk (talk) 08:41, 5 February 2019 (UTC)
The paid option for Pro was discontinued due to legal implications outside the US. There never was and never will be a fee to edit our wikis or subscribe to them — Game widow (talk) 13:07, 5 February 2019 (UTC)
There are obvious reasons why these wikis are not paid only, but even some forums that aren't, have a paid subscription option in spite of whatever legal implication the paid Pro option had.--Xanthipos (talk) 14:28, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

Question about preferences

Is JavaScript interface for Recent changes and Watchlist enabled by default? If so, should all images with these pages be updated to show their versions with JavaScript? • Sattonru (talk) 18:57, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

Also, does «Group changes by page in recent changes and watchlist» enabled by default? • Sattonru (talk) 19:12, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

Assuming logged-out users get default preferences, enhanced RC and grouping are on by default. (Tested in a private window.) --AttemptToCallNil (talk) 19:23, 23 February 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, I know. I tested that, just like you. Also, I know that these preferences are global, but I wanted to be 100% sure. =) Anyway, the question about images remains unanswered. • Sattonru (talk) 19:47, 23 February 2020 (UTC)
TBH, given the non-JS versions are still very much valid, and I guess some editors would prefer them, I'd keep the non-JS images and insert new version images with relevant descriptions where appropriate. As in, treating the non-JS version not as something deprecated or superseded, but something for which an alternative is created which is believed to be mostly superior and as such is the default. --AttemptToCallNil (talk) 22:14, 23 February 2020 (UTC)
Hmmm... I don't mind keeping the images with the non-JS interface. However, since anonymous users are not able to use the non-JS interface and the JS interface is enabled by default, it's not that necessary to keep them. • Sattonru (talk) 17:20, 1 March 2020 (UTC)

Need to build Roblox Wiki

I’m a Noob, but I don’t know where to discuss creating Roblox Wiki. (Note: to be in Gamepedia)--Duowan channel (talk) 10:17, 29 September 2020 (UTC)

Discuss nowhere? Not only there are many Roblox wikis on Fandom, which would be a better option than creating a duplicate on Gamepedia, Gamepedia wiki creation is disabled at least until the UCP migrations, and there is no information on whether wiki creation using the Gamepedia brand will be re-enabled in the future. --AttemptToCallNil (talk) 10:25, 29 September 2020 (UTC)

Sortable table

What class do I use for a sortable table in gamepedia?

wikimeadia says class="wikitable sortable" should do the trick, but it seems to not work.

Kyōdō 21:49, 22 November 2020 (UTC)

looking at the page today, this seems to work. Indeed this seems rather a display issue, even though I cleared browser cache and purged the page. Kyōdō 10:08, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
