Special pages are pages that can't be directly edited by users; their content is instead generated by the MediaWiki software automatically, sometimes in real-time, sometimes based on cached information. Most special pages provide lists of pages that match specific criteria, such as articles with no categories or those having no incoming links to them. Others list other things, such as registered users. Some are page-specific, such as "what links here".

Below is a list of the special pages in use on this wiki and brief descriptions of what they're used for. For more in-depth information, see WikimediaMeta:Help:Special page.

Searching

These special pages are primarily used for searching.

General searching and browsing

All pages — Special:Allpages
Alphabetical listing of all pages in a specified namespace (chosen by drop-down menu), including redirects, which are shown in black.
Unfortunately, when linking to this page a namespace cannot be specified (it defaults to the main article namespace), but a starting point can be given after a forward slash in the link: [[Special:Allpages/So]].
All pages with prefix — Special:Prefixindex
Alphabetical list of every page in a specified namespace (chosen by drop-down menu) whose title begins with a given string of characters; also includes redirects (shown in black).
When linking to this special page the main article namespace is used; the "prefix" string is given after a forward slash at the end of the link: [[Special:Prefixindex/So]].
