So you'd like to add a listing to the directory? Great! - we're happy to have any useful, legal, family-friendly sites.
- Please do NOT add websites that have no value to a person browsing the directory (made-for-adsense, or MFA sites is an example of this) or sites with pornographic content, or content whose legality is questionable. We will not hesitate to decline any listings for content of a questionable nature.
- Please do NOT add advertisements to the directory - listings must be objective descriptions of the website. If you really want to advertise, consider sponsoring a category.
We do not condone censorship or object to pornography on a philosophical basis; our policy is intended to ensure that the Wikidweb directory remains a respectable, useful resource to the widest possible audience.
Before you can add a listing, you must first login or create an account - this is free and can be done anonymously if you choose, but we have implemented this restriction to cut down on the vandalism.
To add a new entry to the WikidWeb directory, enter it (www.yoursite.tld or www.yourhost.net/yourpage.htm) in the search-box at left and click "Add". This will determine if your site, or a similar one, is already listed. If it is not, it will give you a form to add your listing. Below the form are any pages matching a search with your listing as a keyword (is your listing already in the directory with an alternate url? - please don't double list).
- PLEASE NOTE: Add deep links only to the listing for the parent site - do not give them their own listing if they are actually part of a larger site, as follows:
If you have a wide range of content and you want to point users to specific things, that's okay too. Enter your top level site or page, then you can link to sub-pages and give descriptions etc., all within your one listing. We ask that you don't add an link for every page however, just the really noteworthy ones with significantly different content. Be sure to enter links to sub-domains or sub-pages after the main listing tags, and please add no more than six.
Please make listings only in English - support for other languages may be added later.
After you have added your listing, you may wish to categorize it.
Here is an example showing a listing and the wikicode.
Finally, if you want to help out more, or get more visibility for your website, you may want to sponsor a category.
