Help:Top 10 Lists

This extension can be enabled or disabled using Special:WikiFeatures.

Top 10 Lists allow anyone on your wikia to create a votable list. This feature is a great way to get new readers and editors to interact with the wikia. Enabling this feature will add "Top 10 List" as an option when a user clicks "Add a Page".

AddPageTop10

Enabling Top 10 Lists adds an option to the Add a Page pop-up

Step-by-step

  • Choose "Add a Page" from the "Contribute" drop-down of a wikia with the Top 10 Lists feature enabled, then choose the 'Top 10 list' option. Alternatively, visit Special:CreateTopList. For the purpose of this example, you will be guided through the steps that were taken to create the top 10 list seen on this Moviepedia page.
  • The List name will already be populated with what was entered in the "Add a Page" pop-up, but can be changed if needed. There is no need to start the name of your list with "Top Ten" or "Top 10", as the namespace will automatically be "Top_10_list:The Name of Your List"
  • Text entered in the short description field will be displayed above the first list item.
  • Photos added using the "Add a photo" tool on the right will not be displayed; you should add images for each list item using wikitext as described below.
  • Items on the list can be text only, or can contain images or videos. Images or videos must be added to the wikia before you begin creating the Top 10 List, except for videos used directly from the Wikia Video Library. The suggested width for images and videos is 200 pixels.
  • On the example page, the wikitext used to display the Skyfall trailer video is:
    [[File:Skyfall_Trailer_2|200px]]<br />[[Skyfall]]
The caption is linked to the Skyfall article on Moviepedia.
  • On the example page, the wikitext used to display the Cloud Atlas poster image is:
    [[File:Cloud Atlas Poster.jpg|250px]]<br/>[[Cloud Atlas]]
The caption is linked to the Cloud Atlas article on Moviepedia.
  • On the example page, the wikitext used to display The Avengers link is:
    [[The Avengers (2012)|The Avengers]]
The text is linked to the The Avengers article on Moviepedia.
  • Additional items can be added at the time the list is created, or afterward (it is not limited to ten items).
  • Any user will be able to add his/her own items to the list after it is published, and all items will be eligible to receive votes.
  • Each user can only vote once on a Top 10 List. A vote cannot be changed once entered.
