Wiki References / Mediawiki SEO
September 14, 2013, 03:46:07 PM
Hello all!

What are some tips that we should all be aware of in order to optimize our wikis for search engines? (aka Search Engine Optimization). I know this type of topic will be very useful for those wikis who are smaller, and those who moved from Wikia. (I'm honestly surprised this topic never appeared before now)

Some tips that I have:

  • Create a Google Analytics account for your wiki
  • Create a Google Webmaster Tools account for your wiki
  • Use Short URLs
  • Inbound links to your site from other websites (one of the primary purposes of NIWA)

Hello Everyone who still pays attention to this website.

I'm just looking for a "check in" type of update for every member wiki. See who is still completely active, and who might have fallen off the radar. Please try to only check in for wikis that you are a member of Staff on... I don't mind people pitching in to give what they see going on at a wiki, but I'd rather hear The story from members of that community.

So. Here's Golden Sun Universe, checking in.  Everything at our wiki is going as usual. Activity has been fluctuating lately between periods of deadness and major activity.  We recently have been dealing with a crap ton of spam account creation, which I may have successfully eliminated by use of the Asirra extension ( http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ConfirmEdit#AsirraPlease install the Standalone version, not the ConfirmEdit Version. We have no major projects going on currently, though I personally hope to have our Fandom section completely revamped and presentable in the near future (probably a pipe-dream).
Wiki References / A Few Infobox Questions
May 03, 2011, 10:23:51 PM
Hey everyone, i am starting to push infoboxes at GSU (which, I'm surprised I never did before now, didn't realize they weren't being used I guess) and I have a few snags I would like help with.

First, (and maybe more complicated) Is there a way to have a section heading not display when none of the fields under it are in use? There isn't any particular field that would always be displayed when that section is in use. I'm working on this template: http://goldensunwiki.net/Template:Infobox_item
Let's say the Item didn't boost any Stats, how would I go about having it figure out that, and then not display the Stat Boost section at all?

Secondly, We are likely to start using Infoboxes for our Djinn soon, and I would like to be able to specify what element it is in the infobox, and it pick up colors to use from that. So Let's say The Djinn in question is Mars (Fire) element. I want the infobox colors to change all together to a red based scheme. But more than one color, not just one. I think, something like this is implemented on N Wiki, but I'm not sure. 

Well, that's my two questions, anybody got answers for me?
