Yes, hi, I recently made a my own wiki, but I don't seem to the admin as I cannot access the 'Special:SiteSettings' page. It tells me I'm not an admin. Is that a paid feature only. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sodisna (talkcontribs) on October 26, 2013 @ 8:56 a.m. EDT.

What's the name/URL of your new wiki so that I (or Mr. Koren) can check? Besides, once you create a Referata wiki (paid or not), you are made a founding admin/bureaucrat—and those rights alone should mean access to the site settings page in the first place. Wonder if that was a database generation error? --Routhwick (talk) 14:04, October 26, 2013 (EDT)
I figured it out, I wasn't logged in. I assumed that we would be automatically logged in. However, I have a question, is it possible to drop-down (or Collapsible Tabs) menu on the sidebar? As like the ones on Mediawiki's site. I look around and is appears it needs an extension of some sort. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sodisna (talkcontribs) on October 27, 2013 @ 10:56 a.m. EDT
If this early 2011 thread on is any indication, then you're correct. The drop-down/collapsible sidebar requires the Usability Initiative extension, which this service currently does not provide.
If nothing else, I'll bring it up in the Requested features section tomorrow (along with several more concerns) and we'll wait for Koren's say on the matter. --Routhwick (talk) 19:14, October 28, 2013 (EDT)


Hello! I have been trying to create a website, but I can't. I entered e-mail address, confirmed it, and write to me that you should accept e-mail.

When are you gonna add new featured sites?

By the way, what requirements (if any) are there to be on the featured sites? I'm the bureaucrat of a forked wiki from Wikia, and we've grown to around 480 pages so far. Da Nerd (talk) 19:04, October 24, 2013 (EDT)

If and when Mr. Koren gets around to it again. Thankfully, WikiApiary has a fairly comprehensive list of Referata wikis, if you'd like to check it out.
By the way, if you want to get it added, what's your site's name? (I'm running the Dixwell Dossier at this moment.)
Absent Koren and Dennis, I've been busy fighting spam on this central site for weeks—as an admin. About time Koren looked into CheckUser. --Routhwick (talk) 19:46, October 24, 2013 (EDT)
The one I was referring to was the SpongeBob Fan Wiki; I have recently founded YouTV and the Unicode Wiki. -Da Nerd (talk) 10:12, October 25, 2013 (EDT)


Updating skins usually works out just fine for me, but for some reason on my most recent wiki the pages have the new skin, but the main page doesn't. heeelp Da Nerd (talk) 16:57, November 6, 2013 (EST)

Huh, it seems that doing Ctrl+F5 solved the problem. Da Nerd (talk) 16:59, November 6, 2013 (EST)


I'm not sure anyone reads these anymore, but is there a way to have multiple URLs redirect to one wiki? Thanks! -Da Nerd (talk) 21:52, November 19, 2013 (EST)

I still do; it's only a matter of when I have any nerve to reply. By the way, you can: first, you'll have to pay for the Ad-Supported level to receive a single custom URL, then you can purchase several more in bulk from a hosting service. --Routhwick (talk) 15:57, December 18, 2013 (EST)


On the Referata WikiFarm - what is the video markup like, if it is allowed. Best, MarkDilley (talk)


Can someone please add NoTitle to my wiki? I need to use it for the main page. Thanks, UnfazedEveryman (talk) 03:08, June 27, 2015 (EDT)

Disowned by site, then capcha hell.

I went through the process to create an account and confirm my email. I am rd0rd0. I created Chattanooga Semantic Wiki. CSW then would not let me log in but claimed I do not exist.

I then tried to sign up again, but got the worst captchas I have ever seen, in 5 or 6 tries -- *totally* undecipherable what the text is supposed to be.

The Subject/headline box just above, BTW, is far too narrow top to bottom for the text to fit in it, so one must type it in mostly blind.

Deleting a wiki

I set one of my wikis for deletion - does that free up the wiki's URL name if I decided to re-create it? --Xcb86w (talk) 17:44, July 4, 2016 (EDT)
