Requesting a new extension[edit]

To request a new feature to be added to ShoutWiki or to get an on-request feature activated for your wiki, please email us at troppusmoc.ikiwtuohs or leave a message to a member of the Customer Support Team and they'll look onto it.

Please note that while we try in general to fulfill as many requests as possible, we cannot fulfill each and every of them; some extensions might be badly-coded and cause security leaks or then they might not be compatible with our cache.
