When viewing any page on a MediaWiki wiki, you'll find three main navigation elements:
 
# The [[#Sidebar|sidebar]] on the left gives you access to important pages in the wiki such as Recent changes or Upload file.
 
# At the top of the page are links (often called [[#Page Tabs|tabs]]) which relate to the page currently displayed: its associated discussion page, the version history, and—most notably—the edit link.
 
# In the top right corner you'll find [[#User Links|user links]]; as an anonymous user, you'll see a link to create an account or log in (they are the same page). As a logged-in user you have a collection of personal links, including ones to your user page and [[Help:Preferences|preferences]].
 
 
== Sidebar ==
 
[[Image:M-en-sidebar.png|framed|right|Example sidebar, shown on the left of the page]]
 
The sidebar is displayed on the left edge of the page below the site logo (if using the default MonoBook skin). This sidebar gives you access to important pages in the wiki such as Recent changes or Upload file.
 
  
=== Navigation ===
+
'''New images''' is a [[Help:special page|special page]] that lists recently added files as a [[Help:gallery|gallery]] in reverse order, with creation date and time, current size, user who [[Help:upload|upload]]ed the file, and name of the uploaded file.
Clicking on the logo brings you back to the main page of the wiki. The links in the navigation section just below will take you to important pages of the wiki. These links can be configured by site administrators.
+
  
=== Toolbox ===
+
This feature is accessible at [[Special:NewImages]]. The page results are '''not''' adjustable using settings the [[Help:Preferences|Preferences]].
The {{lcfirst:{{int:toolbox}}}} contains a selection of links which change depending on what type of page you are viewing.
+
  
;On all pages (except special pages):
+
This special page can be [[Help:transclusion|transcluded]], with the first unnamed parameter specifying how many entries should be displayed.
:* “{{int:whatlinkshere}}” takes you to a special page that lists the pages on this wiki which contain a link to the current page. This is helpful when you are looking for pages of related information. The “{{lcfirst:{{int:whatlinkshere}}}}” information can also be useful when you are refactoring wiki pages and need to check whether links to this page are still relevant after changes in the current page.
+
:* The “{{lcfirst:{{int:recentchangeslinked}}}}” tool lists all recent changes in the pages linked to from the current page. Recent changes to all relevant template pages are included in the resulting page list. The "Hide minor edits" option that can be set in the user [[Help:Preferences|preferences]] applies, among other things, to “{{lcfirst:{{int:recentchangeslinked}}}}”.
+
:
+
;On all pages (including special pages):
+
:* “{{int:upload}}” displays a special page that allows logged-in users to upload images and other files to the wiki. Uploaded files can be linked from or embedded in wiki pages. ''Uploading files, viewing files on the server, including them in wiki pages and managing the uploaded files is discussed in the [[Help:Managing files|managing files]] section of this manual.'' This is not displayed if file uploading has been disabled or not enabled in the first place.
+
:* The “{{lcfirst:{{int:specialpages}}}}” tool lists the MediaWiki special pages. In MediaWiki terminology, a special page is one that presents information about the Wiki and/or allows access to administration activities for the wiki. For example, a list of users registered with the wiki, statistics about the wiki such as the number of pages and number of page edits, system logs, a list of orphaned pages, and so on. These special pages are commonly generated when the special page is loaded rather than being stored in the wiki database.<br/>''The function and use of the default special pages can be found in the [[Help:Special pages|special pages]] section of this manual.''

== Page Tabs ==

[[Image:M-en-pagetabs.png|framed|right|Default page tabs at the top of the page]]
+
The page tabs are displayed at the top of the page to the right of the site logo (if using the default MonoBook skin). These tabs allow you to perform actions or view pages that are related to the current page. The available default actions include: viewing, editing, and discussing the current page. The specific tabs displayed on your pages depend on whether or not you are logged into the wiki and whether you have sysop (administrator) privileges on the wiki. On special pages only the namespace tab is displayed.
