Help:Navigation

When viewing any page on Gears of War Esports Wiki, you'll find three main navigation elements:

  1. The sidebar gives you access to important pages in the wiki such as Recent changes or Upload file. MediaWiki requires you to log in before seeing all of the sidebar options.
  2. Links (often called tabs) which relate to the page currently displayed: its associated discussion page, the version history, and—most notably—the edit link.
  3. User links; as an anonymous user, you'll see a link to create an account or log in. As a logged-in user you have a collection of personal links, including ones to your user page and preferences.

This page mainly documents the MonoBook skin. Appearances may be different when using a skin other than MonoBook.

Page Tabs

File:Vector page tabs.png

Default page tabs at the top of the page

The page tabs are displayed at the top of the page to the right of the site logo (if using the MonoBook skin or the default Vector skin since MediaWiki 1.16). These tabs allow you to perform actions or view pages that are related to the current page. The available default actions include: viewing, editing, and discussing the current page. The specific tabs displayed on your pages depend on whether or not you are logged into the wiki and whether you have sysop (administrator) privileges on the wiki. On special pages only the namespace tab is displayed.

Default for all users
  • namespace” (page, help, special page, template, user page etc.)
  • “discussion”
  • “edit” (may read “view source” if anonymous editing is disabled, the page is in the MediaWiki: namespace, or the page is protected)
  • “history”
Extra tabs for logged-in users
  • “move”
  • “watch”
Extra tabs for sysops
  • “protect”
  • “delete”

Administrators can add or remove tabs by using JavaScript or installing extensions, so the tabs you see may be different depending on which wiki you are using.
