There are many ways to create new pages in a wiki. The basic principle is that all pages of anything you could ever imagine are already in the wiki, we just need to fill them out!

You can do this in two ways:

  • Make a link in an existing article to the page you want to make.
    • Once you have saved that link, a red coloured link should appear, that indicates no one has filled out that page yet.
    • Click the red link, and you appear in an empty edit window for the page.
    • Fill whatever content you want, and save. A new page is created.
  • Enter the URL of the article you want to create in the address bar of your browser.
    • Once the new page has loaded, you will notice it's like a regular article, but with no content on it at all.
    • In the top of the page, you can click "edit", to open it up for editing.
    • Fill whatever content you want, and save. A new page is created.

The initial input in an article does not need to be more than a few letters to save it, and then you can keep editing it until you are satisfied with the result. Use the markup help page to get an idea of how you can format the text, adding images and things like that.

If you are just starting your wiki editing, and feel a bit unsure, use the Sandbox before you start on existing articles.
