Accessing Source ModeEdit

Source Mode in Classic EditorEdit

  1. Start by clicking on the arrow of the "Edit" button in the top left corner of an article.
  2. Select "Classic Editor" from the options that will appear.
  3. In the top right corner, you'll see "Source", click this and it will automatically switch to this mode. To switch back to Visual, simply click the "Visual" next to it. Sometimes, if your page is heavily coded, you may be taken directly to Source Mode.

Source Mode in Visual EditorEdit

  1. Click the "Edit" button in the top left corner of an article.
  2. Select the button shown above located in the top right next to the "Save" and "Cancel" buttons.
  3. Select "Source Mode" from the list of options that will appear. That's all there is to it!

Changing Your Preferred EditorEdit

Changing your preferred editor means that this is the editor you'll automatically be taken to upon clicking the "Edit" button.
  1. Scroll over your avatar, and select "My Preferences.
  2. In the navigation bar, select the "Editing" tab.
  3. Click the arrow next to the "Preferred Editor" selector.
  4. Select which editor you'd like. Classic rich-text editor is Classic Editor, and Source Editor is Source Mode.
  5. Don't forget to scroll down to the bottom of the window and click "Save"!

Editing Comments and Threads in Source ModeEdit

Believe it or not, you can also edit comments as though you were to edit any page, although excessively coding every comment is not recommended and highly discouraged.

To enter Source Mode simply click the button shown in the bottom left corner of the comment.

That's all there is to it! To return to the Visual Editor simply click the button with an eye on it next to it!

Important Things to Note About CodingEdit

  1. All coding is done in source mode.
  2. Coding is easy to mess up, considering all extra symbols/format of the code counts towards it functioning.
  3. Considering that most coding is taken from a source, if you mess up, don't get frustrated! Just start over with the original code, and try again.
  4. Although you shouldn't take somebody's exact coding without their permission, it's okay to take it and edit it or change something, such as the colors, to make it your own. That's not stealing coding, it's repurposing it.

Keeping Coding SimpleEdit

Ever been stuck in source mode because your coding is too complex? Although with some types of coding, this is inevitable, this can be very easily avoided if you just simplify your coding.

Understanding Tag ElementsEdit

There is no need to code each line of text individually. By understanding tags, you can limit the amount of formatting you need to do on your pages.


All hail <div>.

No, really. This little tag is going to make your life so much easier, if you use it correctly. <div> is meant to apply code to divisions. This means, it will apply the code you add to it to everything below it until you close it off with a </div>. Of course, this can get a little confusing if you use <div> every time you want to code a single line of text, it should be saved for when you want to code a section of the page, as there is a different tag for that.


<span>, a tag of select talents but of great use.

<span> is used to code one line of text specifically. I like to remember it as something that spans over one line. It's great for formatting titles and such for your pages. It's kind of like the more personal version of <div>, a tag that thinks about specific lines of code more than the overall picture.


Ah, the notorious <p>.

Many pages are absolutely riddled with <p>.<p> is your "friend" with a bad influence. Commonly, it will seemingly "appear on pages by itself", and that's because sometimes it does through automated functions, usually because people use <p> and then don't close it with a </p> (and then <p> spreads across your page's code like the plague). It pretty much is a weirder version of <span> that codes paragraphs and is less reliable and more likely to mess itself up. It's probably better to avoid <p> and stick with <span> and <div>.

Keeping Your Coding FunctionalEdit

Of course things like images aren't going to majorly contribute to the disruption and complexion of code, but commonly on AJCW there are many overly-complex coding elements without any particular function, and are kind of just there. Here are some questions to ask yourself when trying to make a simply coded page.

  1. Are all aspects of the coding functional?
  2. Is any aspect too bright, overwhelming, or distracting from the rest of the content?
  3. Am I prioritizing code over page content?

Types of PagesEdit

Article = Any page created that doesn't qualify as one of the below. Create here.

User Page = Pages that have User:(Username) at the beginning. Do not count as articles. They are created in the same way as articles, but with the information stated previously, here.

Sub-Page = A page that links to another page, and is created to do so, almost like a page inside a page. For example, User:FunkySunky/Sandbox, is a sub-page of User:FunkySunky. The sub-page of the user page, is also considered a user page. Another example, would be a sub-page such as DarkClan/Religion, and since DarkClan is an article, DarkClan/Religion would be considered one as well. Sub-pages are often used by groups to describe information about them not on their main page, and this is how such should be formatted.

Blog Posts = Blog posts are pages that will appear under your "blog" section aka User blog:Template:Username. They can be made here.

Opacity refers to the transparency of something. The opacity code can also be used on backgrounds, borders, etc. It is expressed through a number between 0 and 1. Think: 50% of 1 = 0.5; therefore, 0.5 = 50% visible.

This is completely visible.

This is only half-visible.

This is invisible.

<span style="opacity:1">This is completely visible.
<span style="opacity:0.5">This is only half-visible.</span>

Using Art and Copyrighted PhotosEdit

Art that is drawn by someone else can only be used with proper credit and permission. This doesn't just mean saying "credit to the artist", you must credit them and ASK them for permission for them to be used on your articles unless it is explicitly stated that it is free to use.

You can easily filter these images on Google Images by clicking "Tools" and then "Permission Rights". Any image that is listed as "Free for noncommercial reuse" or "Free for reuse" are free game. There are also websites that do this for you, a personal favorite being

Audio and Media PlayersEdit

Soundcloud (Audio Player)Edit

Although soundcloud is allowed anywhere on the wiki, autoplay, which causes the soundcloud to automatically start when a page is viewed, is banned across AJCW.

<soundcloud url="" height="20" width="20" />

<soundcloud url="" height="20"></soundcloud>

<soundcloud url="" height="60"></soundcloud>

<soundcloud url="" height="100"></soundcloud>

Colored SoundcloudEdit

<soundcloud url="" color="#FA5882" height="20" width="21"></soundcloud>

The color MUST be an HTML Code. It will not work otherwise.

Videos (Media Player)Edit

Press this button:

File:Screen Shot 2017-01-02 at 11.06.27 PM.png

How it looks in Classic Editor, where it can be located to the right in the "Add features and media" section.

File:Screen Shot 2017-01-02 at 11.07.57 PM.png

How it looks in Visual Editor, where it can be located in the bar shown in the top left corner.

It's self-explanatory from there, but by the end of it you will have a video like this:


Linking consists of [[Link|Text Displayed]] which would then show up as Text Displayed. For example, [[User:FunkySunky|Linked Text Here]].

Images that LinkEdit

To keep an image from redirecting to the file page/source, you can insert "link=" without an actual redirection itself

Usually images look like this in source mode: [[File:Lil parfae.png]].

To link something to a picture, simply do this: [[File:Lil parfae.png|link=linkhere]]. It should turn out like this:

[[File:Lil parfae.png|link=User:Fubsy]]

Try clicking on it, it will take you to User:Fubsy!

Customizing LinksEdit

Links will display like this, as mentioned earlier: [[Link|Text Displayed]]

But what if you wanted to make the Text Displayed a different color, font, size, etc? That's quite simple:

[[Link|<span style="color: white"><span style="font-family: georgia">Text Displayed</span></span>]]

Text Displayed


Positioning is setting certain elements to act a specific way or stay in a specific place. The code commonly looks something like this:

<div style="position: style; bottom: 10px; left: 10px; overflow:visible/invisible">

Bottom and left can be replaced with top and right respectively. The larger the number (coordinates) on left, the more to the right it is. The larger the number on bottom, the farther up it is.

Overflow can be set to visible or invisible. When it is set to visible, nothing will be hidden. If it is assigned a width and a height, and the overflow is set to invisible, anything pixels that pass the set height/width pixel (px) limit will be hidden.


Anything that is fixed in a certain position will remain in the coordinates it is assigned no matter what, and will be visible even as you scroll through the page. See the bird to the left for an example. It is fixed to the bottom left.

<div style="position: fixed; bottom: 60px; left: 10px; overflow:visible;" class="overlay">[[File:Ousama3.png|100px]]</div>


Similar to fixed positioning, anything that is positioned to be absolute will remain in the coordinates it is assigned no matter what. However, if the positioning is absolute it will not be visible when scrolling, it won't follow essentially.

<div style="position: absolute; top: 60px; left: 10px;overflow:visible">text or whatever</div>


Relative positioning positions objects not starting from the top left of the page like Fixed or Absolute does, but from the line they are placed on in the coding. It's useful for small tweaks and adjustments.

<div style="position: relative; bottom: 10px; left: 20px;overflow:visible">text or whatever</div>

Making ForumsEdit

1. Start by going to the forums! You probably know how to do this, but here's a reminder just in case. All you have to do is look to the top right corner in the navigation bar, it should be on the very right.

You'll come to a page with a variety of boards.

Tutorials Forum, Debate Forum, Roleplay Forum, Your OC's', Fun and Games, Questions and Answers, News and Announcements, and finally General Discussion.

Wow! That's a lot of boards, but don't let it intimidate you, the next step is much easier than it may seem.

2. Choosing a board for your post.

This may seem difficult, but it's really not. A brief description of the topics of the boards is actually provided just beneath it, so you can always check that for reference. Still confused? Here, we'll tell you what they're for:

Tutorials ForumEdit

"Do you have something to teach another user about wiki-ing, or do you need help?"

If you have a guide, or something you want to say that may teach/help others accomplish something, this is a great board to post it! However, if you're confused or need help with something, you can also post your question here, or on the Questions and Answers board.

Debate ForumEdit

"Have something great you wanna say but others don't agree? This is the forum for you!"

This is the best place to start a discussion about topics on the wiki such as coding, rules, art theft, etc. It's basically a place where you can really state your opinion and have others share theirs in return. It is also where the revamps are posted.

Roleplay ForumEdit

"Sometimes it's hard to roleplay on Animal Jam. Roleplay here instead!"

The most popular board on AJCW by far, this is where you can create a thread and roleplay. Pretty self-explanatory honestly.

Your OC'sEdit

"The name says it all, the board for your OC's."

This board is all about you! Or.. your character that is. Want to tell others about your great new OC through the forums? Go ahead. This is also where users that create "Sign-Ups" for their roleplays, post them.

Fun and GamesEdit

"This board is for off-topic conversation -- a place to hang out with your Animal Jam Clans Wiki friends."

Ever wanted to just hang out with your friends without having to keep to the wiki topic? Do so here! You can literally do anything on this board, as long as it keeps with the policies, that is. This board is often used for unrelated discussions threads for groups.

Question and AnswersEdit

"Got a question about the wiki, or the topic? Ask your questions here!"
The name says it all! Ask us anything about the wiki or a topic concerning it.

News and AnnouncementsEdit

"Breaking news and information!"
Do you have a big announcement? Go ahead and post it here! This board is often user by users and staff to post announcements.

General DiscussionEdit

"This board is for general conversations about the wiki."
Does your thread still not belong in one of the boards above, or are you just unsure? If it's still related to the wiki, just go ahead and put it in the General Discussion board.

3. Once you click on one of the boards, you should see a box at the top that says "Start a discussion". Click it. Something like this should appear:

When you set a topic as a page name, the forum then appears in a section on bottom of the page, like the one shown below:


Message Wall GreetingsEdit

=Creating a Message Wall GreetingEdit

Simply copy this url into your search bar, and create the article when it says it doesn't exist.

Keep in mind that if your username has a space, for the link to work you must have a _ in the place of the gap. (Ex: This_Is_A_Username

=Viewing/Editing a Message Wall GreetingEdit

You can view or edit your Message Wall Greeting (if it has been created already) by typing in Message Wall Greeting:Template:Username in the search bar. Alternatively, you can

Activating Chat HacksEdit

First, go to this page.

Next, create the article, and copy either or both of these into the page:

importScriptPage('User:Monchoman45/ChatHacks.js', 'c');

Allows you to:

  1. Allow you to manually set your status to away anytime.
  2. Clear the chat of all messages.
  3. Set words that will ping you (beep), when one appears in a message.
importScriptPage('User:Joeytje50/ChatPMs.js', 'c');

Allows you to:

  1. Create a group pm with anyone else who has chat hacks.

Save the page, and follow the instructions to bypass your browser's cache that will automatically appear. Make sure your personal javascript (JS) is on. You can enable it in your preferences.

See here for more detailed instructions.

Keep in mind chat hacks have a notorious reputation to lag and break pms (both regular pms and group), and cause them to glitch. Keep this in mind if you plan on using them. This is mostly the group pm code, but users experience issues with the regular one as well.

Chat TagsEdit

These are codes that will format your message in the Live!Chat. They can be closed off as well. (Ex: [b]Text here[/b] more text.)

[big] = larger font

[small] = smaller font

[c="color name"] = color

[b] = bold text

[i] = italic text

[s] = text w/ slash through it

[u] = text with underline

[sub] = subscript

[sup] = superscript

[c="#DEDBC6"] = "Invisible" Text

[font="font name"] = Font

[bg="color"] = Highlighted text

Linking Things In the Live!Chat Edit

Although it may seem like linking something in chat would be difficult, it's actually not! 

Simply copy the link and paste it, and it should automatically work.

When linking things in chat you must keep in mind:

  1. The URL cannot contain any swearing before 7:30 CST without a language warning.
  2. If the content of the URL contains swearing, before 7:30 CST you must give a warning. (Ex: Hey guys this is cool but it does have some swears in it!)
  3. The URL cannot contain extreme NSFW content.
  4. You should give a warning to any content that may upset or offend users.

Didn't know this? You should probably read the Chat Policy if you intend to chat in the near future.
