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.

'''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]].

Our illustration of the day is going to be the {{manga}} ''Manga/SouseiNoOnmyouji''. 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 banner at the top of the page and click "More," then select "[=WikiWord=]". You can access and use this menu from any trope or work page on the wiki.

||http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wikiword1.png||

After clicking the "[=WikiWord=]" button, you should see the following window. There's a "How this works" button there too, which can help you out.

||[[http://imgur.com/rGrxokT.png http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_wikiword2.png]]||

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 instead of a proper noun and needs to be in all lowercase.

||[[http://i.imgur.com/jlPFDMD.png http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_wikiword3.png]]||

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

The new custom 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 "Report page" function in the Page Info section of the sidebar.
