Our website uses two systems to index the content for easy access to visitors:

  1. Tags
    • Are used to index names of champions and maps. For example, the tag “Xin Zhao” makes it possible for visitors to find your Xin Zhao custom skins in our website, through the Champions grids – found in the Front Page and in the Champions Page.

      • Blog

        • Interface (Sounds)
        • Interface (Hud)
        • Interface (Splash Art)

• Champion Tag List •

When your skin is a Champion Skin, you need to write the name of the champion in the Tags section, so your skin will appear when visitors click the same champion’s portrait.
Some champions can be tricky to find out the correct tag. If you don’t know the correct tag for a champion, you can simply go to the Champions page and hover the mouse over the portrait to find out the correct tag.

For example, “Doctor Mundo” tag is just Mundo, to simplify things, while “Jarvan IV” tag is Jarvan.
