Warning-red.svg

All Terraria mods in the main space on this wiki must be officially released on tModLoader. Any information in wiki main space regarding any Terraria mods still in the development phase will be removed.


If you are wanting to add a mod, please commit to it. Any released mods incompletely documented on the wiki, i.e., containing less than 15 pages and not worked on in two weeks, will be removed.

This page outlines how to add a new mod to the Official Terraria Mods Wiki.

The process is slightly different depending on whether your mod is officially released. If it is not, you must work on it in your user space. Please select the correct tab for your mod before proceeding:

  • First, create an account, or if you are already registered, log in.
  • Create a new page in the main space that will serve as the main page and landing page for your mod:
Make sure to use the exact name that is displayed on the tModLoader Mod Browser (or other source of download), in order to facilitate easily finding the mod.
  • Enter some basic information about the mod and save the page. You can take other mods' main pages as inspiration.
Ignore the warning that appears when saving the page.

All pages dealing with content of your mod have to be subpages of your mod main page. For example, if your mod main page was Beyond The Forgotten Ages, then the page for your mod's weapons would be Beyond The Forgotten Ages/Weapons. You can use this box to create new pages for your mod:

Make sure every article for the mod has the following text as the first line: {{mod sub-page}}<!--DO NOT REMOVE THIS LINE! It is required for Mod sub-pages to work properly.-->. It enables functionalities that are crucial for the correct functioning of the page.

Category pages, files (images, videos, music, etc.), and templates are to be named in the following format (assuming your mod main page is Beyond The Forgotten Ages):

Categories Category:<name of your mod>/<category name>
Category:Beyond The Forgotten Ages/Items
Files File:<file name> (<name of your mod>)
File:Capacitator (Beyond The Forgotten Ages).png
Logo File:Logo (<name of your mod>).png
File:Logo (Beyond The Forgotten Ages).png
Templates Template:<name of your mod>/<template name>
Template:Beyond The Forgotten Ages/Masomode

The mod's logo will be displayed in the upper right on every article.

Note: File names require that colons (:) within the mod name are replaced with hyphens (-). For instance, if your mod name is 3:00 AM Mod, then the files for that mod must bear the suffix (3-00 AM Mod).

All pages dealing with content of your mod have to be subpages of your mod main page. For example, if your mod main page was User:3.239.95.36/Tremor Mod, then the page for your mod's weapons would be User:3.239.95.36/Tremor Mod/Weapons. You can use this box to create new pages for your mod:

Templates Template:<name of your mod>/<template name>
