Basic InterfaceEdit

You should always keep your preferred style set to Monaco Jade on the Nature Wiki. It is best that you keep the "Let Admins over-ride my skin choice" box ticked on your Preferences special page.

If you've got that box ticked you have nothing to worry about, you'll get the best interface.

Advanced InterfaceEdit

The following points shows things you can add and should add to get better service for you.

  • Shout Box - You can add this by clicking on the "MORE" Button on the very top right hand corner of the page. Then click on "Widgets". Then a menu bar of widgets should appear. Click on the "<" and ">" side arrows until you find the Shout Box Widget. You can find out what each widget is by placing your mouse over its image, that particular widget might also say, "See who's online and chat with your friends". Then press the add button or grab and drag and widget to your preferred place on the left side Nature Wiki menu. Then enjoy! You can type messages into it and other people can too. You can chat with your friends online, etc. To refresh it to keep receiving messages, simply type in -N.W-!
