Community text is available as an easy download. Please see the relevant license for the terms under which this content may be used. Typically, Fandom sites are available under a Creative Commons License (see Fandom Licensing), but this can vary for each community.
Each wiki's content database is available as an XML dump. This does not include private user data or images.
Downloading a database dump
There are two download options:
- Current pages: This contains only the current version of pages, which can be useful for bot use
- Current pages and history: This contains the full page history of each page on the wiki so it can be a very large file if downloaded from a community with a large number of pages and many edits such as WoWWiki (World of Warcraft) or Wookieepedia (Star Wars).
To download one of these, click the date link next to the option you would like. This should automatically trigger your browser to begin downloading the XML file in the .7z file format. This is a compressed file—you'll need to use a tool like 7-Zip to unzip it.
Requesting a new dump
If the latest dump isn't sufficient, or there is no database dump available, a wiki administrator can request one by clicking the "Send request" button.
This will file a request to have the public XML dump updated. These requests are automatically processed during off-peak hours and are usually cleared out weekly. Once the request is processed, the date of the download links will update.
If no admin is available on the wiki, you can also request a new database dump via Special:Contact.
Please note that a new database dump can only be requested once every 7 days.
