Ultimate info[edit]

Can you "see" me? → ←

Font sizes[edit]

  • If you do not specify a font size, the default size for normal (block-level) text, like paragraphs, is typically 16px (16px=1em).
  • Font size can be calculated from pixels to em using this formula: em = desired element pixel value / parent element font-size in pixels (for pristine defaults; pixels/16=em)
  • The solution that "works" in all browsers, is to set a default font-size to 100 percent for the <body> element.
1px 0.0625em
2px 0.1250em
3px 0.1875em
4px 0.2500em
5px 0.3125em
6px 0.3750em
7px 0.4375em
8px 0.5000em
9px 0.5625em
10px 0.6250em
11px 0.6875em
12px 0.7500em
13px 0.8125em
14px 0.8750em
15px 0.9375em
16px 1.0000em

Movin' along?

To move a page, a move token is required. This token is equal to the edit token and the same for all pages, but changes at every login. A move token can be obtained as follows: Obtaining a move token

... where Main%20Page is the namespace & title of work to be moved.

Pages can be moved with action=move.


  • from: The title of the page you want to move. Cannot be used together with fromid
  • fromid: Page ID of the page you want to move. Cannot be used together with from
  • to: The new title you want to move the page to
  • token: The token obtained in the previous request. Take care to urlencode the '+' as '%2B'.
  • reason: The reason for the move (optional)
  • movetalk: Move the talk page, if possible
  • movesubpages: Move subpages, if applicable
  • noredirect: Don't create a redirect from the old title to the new one. Requires the suppressredirect right, which by default is granted only to group Bots; even admins don't have it!
  • watch: Add the page and the redirect to your watchlist
  • unwatch: Remove the page and the redirect from your watchlist


Note: In this example, all parameters are passed in a GET request just for the sake of simplicity. However, action=move requires POST requests; GET requests will cause an error. {{m:ApiEx |desc=Moving Main Pgae (sic) and its talk page to Main Page, without creating a redirect |p1=action=move |p2=from=Main%20Pgae |p3=to=Main%20Page |p4=reason=Oops,%20misspelling |p5=movetalk |p6=noredirect |p7=token=58b54e0bab4a1d3fd3f7653af38e75cb%2B\

Possible errors[edit]


The following is quick breakdown of only the key settings for troubleshooting purposes. Settings not listed are considered 'non-controversial' at his time.

Appearance tab:

  • Skin section.-- Vector is the default setting. If you've selected one of the three other skins, let us know.
  • Files section.-- MediaViewer is enabled by default. If you don't find it useful - disable it for now.

Editing tab:

  • General options section.-- enable or disable the following options as desired.
    Show header and footer fields when editing in the Page namespace
    Horizontal layout when editing in the Page: namespace (toggles)
  • Editor section.-- The last 3 options are key
    Show edit toolbar - enabling this will give you the 'old-style' blue-button toolbar in your edit window. When enabled, the next two options should be disabled.
    Enable enhanced editing toolbar - enabling this will give you a newer editing toolbar. When enabled, it over-rides the above setting (if enabled) by default so disable the above if this is selected.
    Enable wizards for inserting links, tables as well as the search and replace function - Further enhancements added to the newer editing toolbar when enabled; most of which aren't useful to esablished editors. Recommend leaving this off.
