  • You should have noticed by now that the sidebar is split in two. The new pages that appear there are the "About Wookieepedia" page and the copyrights page.
  • More UI elements, like succession boxes, are now hidable. Also, browsers supporting the client-side persistent storage specification will remember the visibility state (shown/hidden) of all hidable elements and restore it when the page is reloaded. Currently, the only such browser is Firefox 2.0+.
    • Infoboxes and message boxes need to be regenerated to reflect the changes.
  • The article milestone box. See Talk:Anakin Skywalker for an example (some others are at Special:Whatlinkshere/Template:Ahh). A list of codes (FAC, GAN etc.) is available at Template:Ahconv.

To create your own hidable box:

  • Add the "hidable" CSS class to the entire thing.
  • Add the "hidable-content" CSS class to the subelement (div or table) whose visibility state you want to be togglable.
  • Insert the following code where you want to see the hide button (it should not be in the hidable part, otherwise it will get hidden along with everything else!):
<span class="hidable-button"></span>

  • Please forgive Artoo for reordering the old threads. It was an unavoidable side effect of the de-substing of {{shtop}}. - Sikon 17:39, 26 March 2007 (UTC)
    • Shtop it, Artoo! I'm sorry. I just . . . couldn't resist. Havac 20:22, 26 March 2007 (UTC)


  • Excellent. I've been trying to think of a way to bring back the link on every page to About Wookieepedia and Copyrights since the Wikia staff inexplicably kriffed up the bottom bar with the Digg and Delicious buttons. (Yet another "upgrade" deployed without considering user feedback.) -- Darth Culator (Talk)(Kills) 13:27, 26 March 2007 (UTC)
