Wikisimpsons - The Simpsons Wiki

Help:Contents

The preferences dialog allows you to personalize some aspects of MediaWiki. They will apply only when you are logged in.

User profile[edit]

Basic information[edit]

The user profile is a profile for you. It contains your username, user ID, groups you are a member of, edit count and registration time. There are also fields for your real name and gender and an option to change your password.

Change password[edit]

To change your password, enter your old password, the new password, and the new password a second time. (If you're merely changing the other preferences, you do not need to enter your password.)

Internationalisation[edit]

This setting allows you to set your default language. The default for Wikisimpsons is English (en).

Signature[edit]

This setting allows you to make a personalized signature for your user account.

E-mail options[edit]

The E-mail options allows you to set an email address and change the options for the type of e-mail you receive. These options are:

  • Enable e-mail from other users
  • Send me copies of e-mails I send to other users
  • E-mail me when a page on my watchlist is changed
  • E-mail me when my user talk page is changed
  • E-mail me also for minor edits of pages

It also tells you whether your e-mail is authenticated or not.

Appearance[edit]

The Appearance tab changes the look of the wiki.

Skin[edit]

This allows you to change your skin. Wikisimpsons has three options, Monaco, MonoBook and Vector. Vector is the default skin we currently use.

Files[edit]

These settings allow you to change the maximum image size in File: pages and change your default thumbnail image size.

Advanced options[edit]

These are miscellaneous options for changing the appearance.
