You are invited to add a wiki to WikiIndex, see AboutUs. Follow these 3 simple steps:

Step 1 – Check if it's already listed here

NEW - Drill-Down View of list of wikis

Find the correct name of the wiki.

Use the search feature in the left side menu to check if the wiki is already listed here. We already have quite a big index. Try some alternate names of your wiki (e.g. with or without the word wiki on the end). If you find it, there's no need to add it again, just edit the existing information!

Step 2 - Create the Wiki page

if needed...

Type the name into the edit field and press the button, you will be transferred to a newly created wikipage. Fill in there what you know -- at least the link address of the wiki.

Then save the page.

To put a logo on the wiki description page...

  • You must login or create an account login before you can upload an image
  • Click on the "Upload file" link in the lower left hand toolbox
  • Locate your logo file using the browse button
  • Upload the file
  • Copy the page name of the image page
  • Replace "Image:NoLogo.png" in the code above with your image page name
  • Save the page

On the other hand, if you don't want to login to wikiindex and know the Logo URL you can hotlink to that logo using this url in the field logo.

Note: if you upload an image that starts with a lower case character, this first character is automatically converted to upper case. The server is case sensitive. So prepare to link to "Logoxyz.gif" when you've actually uploaded "logoxyz.gif".

An alternate way to put a logo on the wiki description page is described at WikiProject:Logos.

Optional – categorizing
