From StrategyWiki, the video game walkthrough and strategy guide wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

As a means of providing more information to the reader without going outside our scope, StrategyWiki has partnerships with a few other websites on the Internet, so that we can share information and visitors on specific subjects. StrategyWiki provides the game information and walkthroughs, while the other wikis typically provide more detailed all-round information.

If you know of a large wiki which you think would make a good StrategyWiki partner, please suggest it on discord; as long as it's a well-established and vibrant wiki, with detailed and appropriate information, it's likely to be contacted about forming a partnership.

In-guide linking[edit]

Bulbapedia[edit]

Bulbapedia (part of the larger Encyclopaediae Pokémonis) was the first wiki with which StrategyWiki formed a partnership. Our partnership with them relates to Pokémon, with us linking to their pages on individual Pokémon, and them linking to us for game walkthroughs.

To link to a Bulbapedia article on a Pokémon, use the {{bp}} template, which takes the Pokémon's name as its first parameter.

Other available templates are {{bpm}} for moves, {{bpa}} for abilities, and {{bpt}} for types. Further usage is explained on the respective template pages.

All Pokémon game guides should also have {{bulbapedia}} on their main page to link to the appropriate Bulbapedia page.

Zelda Wiki[edit]

Zelda Wiki is a large wiki devoted to The Legend of Zelda , and we have a partnership with them similar in scope to our Bulbapedia partnership; they link to us for game walkthroughs, and we link to them for Zelda information.

To link to a Zelda Wiki article, use the {{zw}} template, which takes the article's name as its first parameter.

All Zelda game guides should also have {{zeldawiki}} on their main page to link to the appropriate ZeldaWiki page.

WiKirby[edit]

WiKirby is a wiki with a focus on Kirby, and our partnership with them is similar in scope to Bulbapedia.

To link to a WiKirby article, use the {{wk}} template, which takes the article's name as its first parameter.

All Kirby game guides should also have {{wikirby}} on their main page to link to the appropriate WiKirby page.

Nookipedia[edit]

Guide infobox linking[edit]

PCGamingWiki[edit]

PCGamingWiki is an independent wiki which focuses on the technical aspects of PC games. As they cover every PC game released, we have the most games linking to each other. They link to us from their infoboxes, and we link to them from ours, via the pcgamingwiki parameter.

As this is such an extensive interlinking, the parameter updates are handled by a bot that runs monthly. If you notice a missing link, create a redirect from the PCGamingWiki name to the StrategyWiki name, and the bot will create the links during its next run.

Neoseeker[edit]

Neoseeker provides guides, cheats, and forum discussions for gaming and PC enthusiasts. They link to us as a walkthrough resource, and all our game infoboxes automatically link to their game pages via an API integration.

Switcher.gg[edit]

Switcher.gg helps connect Nintendo Switch Online players with each other. They link to us for game walkthroughs, and all our game infoboxes automatically link to their game pages via an API integration.
