Forums: Index WoWWiki general New Sidebar Element Being Tested


I wanted to give you a heads-up about a new sidebar unit we are experimenting with on Wikia. We've been looking again at our Answers websites, and have just redesigned them to have a similar look to other wikis, and to make it easier to match the theme to a similar regular wiki.

Next we would like to point people toward a wiki’s corresponding answers site via a box on the right hand rail of the wiki, similar to the Recent Activity box.

This box is a bit like the the Answers widget we introduced last year, but is simpler and just shows a list of questions recently asked or answered on the corresponding answers site, much like one would expect to see on “Wiki Activity” if one were actually on the answers site. For this test, the box would only show to logged-out users.

We've chosen wikis with plenty of activity and an Answers wiki on the same subject - ut if we've chosen the wrong Answers Wiki to link to please let us know. If you are logged out, and see the “Recent Questions” box, feel free to give us your feedback! --daNASCAT WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 18:21, May 4, 2011 (UTC)

When might this show up at WoWWiki? Is there a reason it only shows up for anonymous users?
The correct answers wiki associated with WoWWiki is WoW Answers. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 5 May 2011 8:38 AM Pacific
I believe this will be enabled later this week and it is showing up only for anonymous for testing purposes. This is just a beta test, not a finished project and we want to first see if it increases traffic first and foremost. --daNASCAT WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 22:05, May 5, 2011 (UTC)
Just curious, will it be possible to embed one Answers site on multiple wikis?--AB 14:23, May 6, 2011 (UTC)
Yes. (Simple answer, right?) :) --daNASCAT WikiaStaff.png (help forum | blog) 18:33, May 6, 2011 (UTC)
