As you can see, the tool shows you how the wikiword currently appears, any customizations that are already in use, and any that are in the queue to be approved. Now, just enter the custom title you want to use in the Custom Display field. In this case, since the manga's page is using the Japanese title, the "No" is a particle and not a proper noun and needs to be in all lowercase.

It seems you need to add some kind of special coding to a title. Fortunately, we no longer need to use the ptitle system, and you can now customize a title to display the title properly. Use this any time you need to change the way a page title looks such as adding punctuation or altering spacing.

done! Don't worry about subpages--the custom title will automatically be applied to all pages with the same base title, regardless of namespace.

Our illustration of the day is going to be the webcomic ''Webcomic/EarsForElves''. When a screenshot has been shrunk to fit through the image uploader, a full size version is available through a click.

First, go to the tools menu and select "customize wikiword". You can access and use this menu from any page on the wiki.

After clicking the "customize wikiword" button, you should see the following screen. There's a "How this works" button there too, which can help you out.

||[[http://i.imgur.com/yHiGhbk.png http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/customtitledemo2_4726.png]]||

Here's where you enter the proper wikiword for what you want customized. No spaces, and no namespace -- the custom title will automatically be applied to all pages with the same base title, regardless of namespace.

||http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/customtitledemo3_6995.png||

Hit "OK". This will load the standard page title. (If there is a custom title already in place, that won't be displayed.) Enter the proper title in the new box below. In this case, we'll be changing "For" to the lowercase "for". You can also change spaces and add punctuation, but "double quotes" don't work.

||http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/customtitledemo5_6603.png||

Hit the "OK" command again. Got that? Finished!

The title will now show up in a queue for the moderators to approve or decline. If you're not sure whether it's gone through or think they have declined it unexpectedly, wait a while, and then send them a message through the "This article needs moderator assistance with..." box in the tools menu.

spacing.

'''NOTE:''' The custom title system is ''only'' to be used for the following:
* Adding punctuation (e.g. ''Airplane'' to ''Airplane!'')
* Changing spacing (e.g. Camel Case to [=CamelCase=])
* Changing capitalization (e.g. Camel Case to Camelcase)
* Adding diacritics. (e.g. Pokemon to Pokémon)
* Changing text to numerals (e.g., [=TwoThousandOne=] to 2001)

'''Never''' use the custom title system to rename an article to something else. We have [[Administrivia/HowToMoveAPage a separate procedure for that]].

It seems you need to add some kind of special coding to a title. Fortunately, we no longer need to use the ptitle system, and you can now customize a title to display the title properly. Use this anytime you need to change the way a page title looks such as adding punctuation or non-standard characters. When doing this for a Administrivia/NameSpace that is also a WikiWord, you should ''not'' wikiword the Administrivia/NameSpace, this disrupts the custom titler, the proper method is shown at the bottom of the page.

Our example page of the day is going to be Series.AthenaGoddessOfWar, which needs a simple colon added to the name (and the "of" conjunction not capitalized).

First, go to the tools menu and select "Customize Title". You can access and use this menu from any page on the wiki.

||[[http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/688/toolsmenu.jpg/ http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tools_menu_resized_7751.jpg]]||

||[[http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/94/customlerequestblank.jpg/ http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Custom_Title_blank_resized_6225.jpeg]]||

Here's where you enter the proper wikiword for what you want customized.[[note]]Now, if this page were not in the Series Administrivia/NameSpace and were in the Main namespace, we would not need the leading Namespace change (the part that says "Series/").[[/note]]

||[[http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/685/customleleonly.jpg/ http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/custom_title_only_resized_6407.jpg]]||

Hit the "OK" button. This will load the title and any current custom titles for the page.

||[[http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/546/customleloaded.jpg/ http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/custom_title_loaded_resized_9494.jpg]]||

Enter the proper title, in this case we'll be adding in the colon for the proper name, and change the capitalized "Of" to "of".

||[[http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/269/customlefilled.jpg/ http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/custom_title_filled_resized_7935.jpg]]||

Hit the "OK" command again and the title will show up so a mod can check and make sure it works properly.

!! Customizing the title of a WikiWord Administrivia/NameSpace.

Instead of entering the namespace as a wikiword, you will enter the Administrivia/NameSpace as a single word, so things like [=VideoGame/=] become Videogame/.
