Wiki Code

  • For an overview of wiki code please See THIS PAGE

Before You Begin...

  • MAKE SURE ALL FILMS ARE CLASSIC EXPLOITATION FILMS. If you arent sure what qualifies, please ask first
  • Please feel free to add posters (800px wide), film stills/ads (create separate page linked from review) comments, original reviews, articles, general information & film trivia to the database.
  • If you are only writing a short description of a film (A paragraph), please open a Comments subpage. To do this, just follow the layout seen HERE (NOTE: Then Click Edit Page to see how the code is set up) . If someone has already posted a comment, just add an asterisk and post your comments under the previous one. Remember to add the Comments category link.
  • If you are writing a full length film review (2-3 paragraphs or more), please begin with "Film Review" and sign your nickname and the date posted at the end.
  • If you are posting Movie Trivia, please open a Fun Facts subpage like the one ON THIS PAGE. (Then, Click Edit Page to see the code set up). Remember to add a Fun Facts category link.
  • If you are adding press materials (press book images, ads, DVD/VHS related images) open up a Press Kit subpage like the one ON THIS PAGE. (Click Edit Page to see the code set up). Remember to add a Press Kits category link.
  • If you are adding posters, add a new page on the corresponding film page like the one HERE (Click Edit to see the code set up. Make sure not to make a subpage, as the poster pages are separate). If there is no film page yet, just open a new separate page. (SEE HOW TO CREATE A NEW REVIEW PAGE BELOW). Make sure to add the year with the title: Example: Piranha (1977) to keep it separate from its film review page. Please keep the size approx 400 (width) X 600 (height). Also, please make sure the posters do not show any printed website promotional stamping. Remember to add a Posters category link when you're finished.
