The Basics
These are the things you should see on basically every page, so they're important to know.
Banner
This is an image so the website looks nicer, banners usually made by stopperbud will be there.
Navigation Bar
This is how you move around the site's basic areas: Home, News, Chat, Forum, Items, Locations, Collections, Compounds, Recycles, Manufactures, Tools, Monsters.
User Toolbar
This will be right under an advertisement, which is under the Navigation Bar. This is where you Register, Search, Login, Logout, and so on.
Online: Shows a list of who's currently logged into the site.

Homepage
The homepage is probably the most important part of the site, and perhaps the most informative. It has all the most recent data displayed on it. Looking around, you'll see a lot of things.
Topics
This will list all the threads most recently commented on.
Recent Articles
These Articles are announcements/updates posted by Scott, the maker/moderator/editor of the Database. It's good to take a look when there's a new one, you might learn something!
Files
Shows the most recent files uploaded to the site.
Users
Shows the newest users of the site.
Avatars
Shows the most recently added images used for a person's avatar. (Avatar is an image that goes next to your username in posts, it's like a way to show what you're into or just have a cool picture in.)
Most Recent Items
Shows the items most recently added to the Database.
Most Recent Compounds
Shows the compounds most recently added to the Database.
Most Recent Recycles
Shows the recycles most recently added to the Database.

News
This is a list of announcements concerning the Database. Not too much to do here, mainly for reference.
Chat
Here is where you can have a live chat with anyone else currently there. There is a text field you type into, then simply click the post button (on the right side of the text field) or just press enter to post the message. Messages will have times posted to the far right, and you can also look into old messages by clicking the "More Messages" button near the bottom.
Forum
This is where you can see all the various Topics started by people. Simply click the area you wish to go to, then you can Comment, Search, or even start a new Topic.
Items
This lists all the items currently in the Database. You can apply search filters using the buttons and text field above the list. NOTE: You don't have to fill in every search filter, but the more you put in the easier it is to narrow down the results. You can also add an item not listed in the Database, just click "Create a New Item" to add the info at the next screen. Please, do not make fake items.
Locations
This displays a map of the world of Wonderland Online. Scroll down and you'll see the names listed; click any of those to see a map of that area and information about it.
Collections
Shows a list of all the spots you can collect items for free. It usually has a close up image, a map view, coordinates, and the location.
Compounds
This is a lot like the items page, only it shows compounds! This is my favorite area of the website, and one that can lead you to wealth if you know your stuff. Just like in items you can apply search filters, and add new compounds to the list.
Compound Calculator
This allows you to select items and calculate the outcome in compounding. It will show you all possibilities according to the known 'Laws of Alchemy.' However, alchemy can be tricky, so don't expect perfect results when using this.
The Checkmark and the ? Box
Next to a compound formula, you will see either a checkmark (looks like a weird V) or a box with a ? on it. The checkmark means the compound is correct, so you can trust it. The ? means a compound hasn't been confirmed yet. That doesn't mean it's wrong, just that a sub-moderator hasn't tested it and had positive results yet. (a sub-moderator is some one who can edit compounds, items, recycles, and so on. Only Scott may give this right out, and it has to be earned.)
Recycles
Shows a list of recycles; once again search filters can be used and you can add more to the Database.
Manufactures
This shows how to make what when it comes to furniture and tools in your house, and also vehicles! If you're looking for something specific, just type in the name in the text field over the list and click 'Search' just right of it.
Manufacturing Detail List
This shows you all the details of a manufacture, and even provides a way to be organized about it. Raw Materials is everything you need to start building; Tasks shows the things you need to build with those materials. You can see all the steps by clicking the + boxes next to the items near the top.
Tools
This shows you a list of the various tools, and what makes those tools. Click one and it will show you a Workflow (all the tools needed to make it) and also show you what items the tool can make.
Monsters
Here you can see all the monsters currently in the Database. Or if you don't see one you can add it. Once again, you can search for a specific monster.

This is some of the basic stuff, but I hope you enjoy this information and use it wisely :D

Good work!

This is the most surprising guide I have seen in this forum. XD

I have an idea, how about make all new users to come to this page straight after they register? Like after clicking register, they will be redirected to this page. So at least they know how to use this site properly.

Off-topic: to scott, your avatar is absolutely weird! XD I liked the last one you had.

Scott:
Thanks xD I just had some spare time, so instead of making another rant about it I figured I'll do something about it^^ Oh and scott, do .gif animation work with this site as avatars? EDIT: The one I have isn't even over 20KB.

♥Radical♥:
Yeah, that's part of why I made this =P If you look at the site improvement to-do list, you'll see I suggested new users cannot post until they take a test or something about posting in forums. Like a license haha. Not only will this slow down spamming, but also if some one spams even after the test that 'license' could be revoked.

gif animations should work. i don't use one personally but there are lots of other users who have gif animated avatars. are you making one yourself or posting one you already know is working?

Hello.
I just want to ask a question. Is there no Quests-section here, where all the quests are listed with pics and instructions, etc? Because I always have to have tabs of wlowiki and wl.igg to see info about quests. Shouldn't it be here as well, since this site almost have everything? That would make things easy, only need to have one site open then.. Or have I missed it? I can only find Quests forum.

hey this guide was really really helpful to me since i am new here and stuff... But I think you are kinda missing a "Ranks" guide....
like in how many posts do you become a recruit or a scout etc....
mentioning all the prerequisites and requirements and stuff....
that would be really helpful!!
