The Guide to the Main Navigation Bar


The Navigation Bar is your main means of transportation between the different areas in Elftown. It is found on the top of every page of Elftown you navigate while logged in. Here's a quick guide to it:

This button goes to the Main Street of Elftown. Here, you'll be able to find the latest changes and updates concerning the whole of Elftown, polls and summaries of news, the different Main Street features, upcoming contests, and other points of interest.

This is the place to go to view your own information that other Elftowners are allowed to see. From here, you can change your personal data, invite others to Elftown, upload your photos and art, and check your personal guestbook, relation list, and member statistics.

This is the place for your general diary entries of all sorts. You can leave messages for everyone, just your friends, or just yourself.

Are you annoyed by another Elftowner? Did you know that you can effectively turn on the "block" feature to block out all messages to you sent by this person. (But if the harassment is serious, please contact the Town Guards concerning the situation.) This button is your list of blocked members.

View Messages - You are able to look at the messages sent to you by other Elftowners. To send messages, go to the person's profile page and scroll to the bottom of the page.

Sent Messages - You are able to look at the messages you have sent to other Elftowners.

The Wiki is a place for unlimited creativity. Everyone can edit the wiki pages and even add new wiki pages. Read the Wiki Help or Index for more information.

To make life easier, you can easily browse those houses you are watching or wiki pages you are either watching or owning. The notes page separates houses you have commented on, are watching, or have bookmarked. It also separates wiki pages you own and watch, own and do not watch, and do not own and watch.

Looking for someone or something on Elftown? The search button allows you to easily search for members using user names, emails, or information, search the forums, or even search the wikis by keywords.

Elftown's own forum, where you can find, give, exchange, and request information with other Elftowners, chat about different topics, or create your own forum for whatever you may be interested in. This button will take you to the list of public forums and any private forums you may be a member in. To get an in-depth Guide to the Forums-pages, go to the forum guide page.

This button must only be used when the real world needs tending to. Elftown is your home, after all...

This button will take you to the Elftown polls. This shows both official and private polls.

This is a shortcut to the next unread posting in the forums you have joined. If there are no new postings the button will say "No unread posts", in which case it takes you to the Forum listing.

2004-05-22 [Nagel the Mage]: how do i change my password?

2004-05-22 [Nagel the Mage]: How do I change my password??

2004-06-28 [Tári Nénharma]: the images are outdated.

2004-06-29 [peura]: You're quite right about that... Since this wiki page isn't password protected anyone who feels up to it is welcome to fix that :-)

2004-06-29 [True, plain and simple]: Fixed, minus the screenshot.

2004-08-04 [Angel_of_ Destruction]: How do you make it so someone can't see your page anymore?

2004-08-07 [Ocean Dreaming]: If I recall - you don't. You can block a person, though.

2004-08-10 [sadiis]: Ok, so how do you block a person? Thanks :)

2004-08-14 [Ocean Dreaming]: Go to their house and scroll down to the message box. Below that is a button that says 'Block this member'. That'll block them. Likewise - if you want to unblock them, you need to do the same thing. The button will just read 'Unblock this member'. ^-^

2004-08-15 [sadiis]: Thank you Shanra.. :)

2004-12-29 [Wild_Angel]: But How Does All This Work?

2004-12-29 [Sunrose]: What exactly? :)

2005-02-12 [ababy]: how do you get the @wiki pictures in your house

2005-02-12 [Sunrose]: @wiki pictures?

2005-02-12 [Ocean Dreaming]: I think she means the banner images that say 'communityname@wiki'. [ababy], you get them the same way you put any other image in your house (although mostly the one rule is that you need to be a member of the wiki). Read through the guide to the pseudo html on Elftown if you don't know how to inline images. ^-^ Most wiki-communities will have some form of explanation on their banner page.

2005-11-18 [GougexMyxEyes]: If I want to unblock a person, I go to their house and below the message box is a button that says "unblock this member"? Well, for me it just says "you are blocking this member" and it doesn't let me unblock that person. So, how do I unblock them?

2009-07-13 [pixish]: The button images are not loading for me?

2009-07-13 [iippo]: The button graphics moved some place else some time ago with the ET revamp.

2010-10-14 [wicked fae mage]: The images aren't appearing for me. Would it be the browser?

2010-10-14 [Flisky]: Oh, wow, old pictures...most of them broken...

2010-10-14 [wicked fae mage]: That explains it then *snaps fingers in realization*
