FullPro C.Syde's Wiki Favicon


The administrators' dashboard is a centralised space that highlights the most important tools used by administrators. The special pages are built into it to make the administrators' dashboard the go-to place for administrators to easily tweak and monitor their wiki.

Because only administrators and discussion moderators are able to view the dashboard, there may be some debate as to whether a replica should be included as part of the community portal navigation. But because it is just a replica of the Special:AdminDashboard, and it is not the dashboard itself, it doesn't really seem to matter.

By default, the admin dashboard does not have a JavaScript button. This wiki uses imported JavaScript from the Wikia Developers Wiki which adds the custom JavaScript button to the admin dashboard on C.Syde's Wiki.

Accessing the dashboard

The administrators' dashboard is available on all wikis a user has founded, or are an administrator on.

It can be found by clicking on "Administrator" in the universal Toolbar at the bottom of the screen, or by visiting Special:AdminDashboard.

How it works

Important administrator tools that are often used live on the "General" tab. The following links point to the help pages for each function.

Wiki
Theme Designer - quickly and easily give the wiki a theme.
Recent Changes - track the latest community activity.
Top Navigation - update the wiki's navigation bar.
Wiki Features - turn special features on and off.
Promote - promote the wiki so it will appear on the Wikia homepage on mobile apps.
CSS - allows advanced theme customisation.
JavaScript - allows advanced code scripting.
Community
User List - see a list of users on the wiki.
User Rights - give (and remove) special rights from members of the community.
Community Corner.
Help - get straight to Wikia's help pages.
Content
All Categories - see a list of all the categories on the wiki.
Add a Page, Add an Image, Add a Blog Post - quickly add content to the wiki.
Multiple Image Upload - need to upload a lot of images at once? Use this!

The "Advanced" tab is home to the rest of the special pages on the wiki, normally found on Special:SpecialPages. (If you visit a wiki that you are not an administrator of you will see Special:SpecialPages in a more basic format.)

Quick Stats

Quick Stats lives on the right side of the administrators' dashboard. Here administrators can monitor the wiki's recent statistics. It shows page views, edits, and image uploads for the past seven days.
