Creating a page is as easy as clicking here. For more detailed information, see below..


How do I create a new page?

  1. See Add a Page
  2. Or, on an existing page type double brackets around any word(s) and it creates a link to the new page. After saving the existing page, clicking on that link new (e.g., the new page title is a red or blue link) takes you to an edit page to enter the new text.

Here are three quick steps to prevent mistakes when creating the new page

  1. Is the title of your new page taken? Use the 'Search' function to look for the title.
  2. Does a similar page already exist? If someone has written a similar page you may think about adding your new information to the existing page which can be split later after it has grown.
  3. Are there issues with the title of your new page? The following characters are not allowed in page titles: "# + < > [ ] | / { }". The maximum page name length is 255 characters.

Here are three quick tips to help you after saving the page:

  1. See Editing help for tips about how to add content to the new page.
  2. Click on "what links here" on the left-hand side bar. If nothing points to your new page, think about creating links to it from other pages, otherwise your new page will be isolated.
  3. If you indicate the new page as "watch", you can have email notifications when the page changes (if you click on "send me an email on page changes" in the "preferences" link).
