Within BoyWiki (and other projects), content is separated into namespaces, which appear before the page name. For example, Help:Editing is in the Help: namespace. Regular encyclopedia articles are in a namespace with no prefix added. Namespaces come in pairs, one for content and one for talk — for example, Help talk:Editing. Another example is your user page and associated talk page, which is added to the User: and User talk: namespaces. You may switch between content and talk pages using the first two tabs at the top of each page.

Contents and index browsing

BoyWiki articles are organized into three main categories Encyclopedia, Entertainment, and Life along with Activism, Boys, and Technology which are new categories we are now building. Another new feature of BoyWiki is Chronology which also includes Births. There is also the administrative category BoyWiki, as well as many other topics.

To help you find your way around this BoyLover world of knowledge, BoyWiki categories have a "category header" which will direct you to all the main categories. Links to all of BoyWiki's main content pages are presented below, and they, in turn, link to all the rest.
