  • admin - short for administrator. A user with extra technical privileges for "custodial" work on Wikipedia – specifically, deleting and protecting pages, and blocking abusive users. See also sysop.
  • article - an encyclopedia entry. All articles are pages, but there are also pages that are not articles, such as this one.

B[සංස්කරණය]

  • broken link - a link to a nonexistent page, usually colored red.
  • blue link, bluelink - a wikilink to an article that already exists shows up blue - or purple if it has been recently visited by that reader.

C[සංස්කරණය]

  • category - a collection of pages linked by topic. Category tags are in the form Category:Computers and are listed at the bottom of a page. The part after the ":" is the name of the category. A list of basic categories to browse through can be found at Category:Fundamental categories.
  • Community portal - one of Wikipedia's main project pages. It can often be found on the sidebar (on the left side in most skins), and is a page that lists the collaboration of the week, outstanding tasks that need to be addressed, and several other useful bits of information and resources. The Community Portal is useful for picking an article or topic to work on or read.
  • coordinates - articles about specific places may have coordinates. Clicking on these leads to a list of maps for the location.

D[සංස්කරණය]

  • disambiguation - the process of resolving the conflict that occurs when articles about two or more different topics have the same natural title.
  • disambiguation page - a page that contains various meanings of a word, and refers to the pages where the various meanings are defined. In cases when there is a prevailing meaning of the term, disambiguation pages are named "subject (disambiguation)".
  • discussion - a link at the top of a page that leads to the discussion for that page (also called its talk page).

E[සංස්කරණය]

  • editor - anyone who writes or modifies articles in a Wikipedia. See also contributor, user.

F[සංස්කරණය]

  • Featured article, an article that has been selected as representing "the best of Wikipedia".
  • free link - a link pointing to another page within Wikipedia or its sister projects, sometimes referred to as wikilinks or internal links. Unless otherwise specified in a user's monobook.css, these links usually show up as blue if they are working and you haven't visited them before, red if they are broken or don't yet exist, and purple if they are working and you have visited them before.

G[සංස්කරණය]

H[සංස්කරණය]

  • history - all previous versions of an article, from its creation to its current state. Also called page history. See also: Help:Page history.

  • IP (Internet Protocol) - a protocol used for communicating data across the Internet. The numerical IP address is used for tracking the edits of anonymous contributors (editors who are not logged on as a user).

  • Main Page - the page to which every user not specifying an article is redirected. The Main Page contains links to current events, presents certain articles (like a featured article of the day and links to Wikipedia's newest articles), and serves as an entry point to browsing all articles by topic or other classification. Links to sister projects and other-language Wikipedias are also a prominent feature on the Main Page. Due to its high exposure, all content on the Main Page is protected.
  • MediaWiki - the software behind Wikipedia and its sister projects, as well as several projects not related to Wikimedia.

Wikipedia has namespaces for encyclopedia articles, pages about Wikipedia (project namespace), user pages (User:), special pages (Special:), template pages (Template:), and talk pages (Talk:, Wikipedia talk:, and User talk:), among others.
