Alternate methods to create pages:

There are several ways to start a new page. These can vary based on the type of page started, as well as the wiki and namespace.

Using Wikilinks

MediaWiki makes it very easy to link wiki pages using a standard syntax (see Help:Links). If you (or anyone else) create a link to an article that doesn't exist yet, the link will be coloured 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.

Creating a page this way means that right from the start, the page will be linked from at least one other place on the wiki (and typically you will want to mesh it into other related pages later).

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.

Using the URL

You can use the wiki's URL for creating a new page. The URL to an article on this wiki is like this: ARTICLE

If you replace ARTICLE with the name of the page you wish to create, you will be taken to a blank page which indicates that no article of that name exists yet. Clicking the "Edit" at the top of the page will take you to the edit page for that article, where you can create the new page by typing your text, and clicking submit.

Create redirects to your new page

Don't forget to set up redirects when you create a page. If you think another person may search for the page you've created by using a different name or spelling, please create the proper redirect(s). See Help:Redirects.
