Help:Starting a New Page

Jump to: navigation, search

There are several ways to start a new page.

Using Wikilinks

WikiLou's MediaWiki software makes it very easy to link wiki pages together using a standard syntax (see Links). If you (or anyone else) creates a link to an article that doesn't exist yet, the link will be colored red, like this.

Clicking a red link, will take you to the edit page for the new article. Simply type your text, click save and the new page will be created.

Once the page has been created, the link will change from red to blue (purple for pages you've visited) indicating that the article now exists.

From the Search Page

If you search for a page that doesn't exist (using the search box and 'go' button on the left of the page) then you will be provided with a link to create the new page. (Note that this technique doesn't work if you use the 'search' button).

Using the Inputbox Extension

You can start a new page by typing in your article's name and clicking the "create article" button below. <inputbox> type=create </inputbox>
