Creating a new Wiki page

There are occasions where you will have to create a new page to add content. The procedures outline below is one of the simplest methods; however, there are other methods you can use.

1. Log into the Wiki.

2. Navigate to the page where you wish to create a link to a new page in the Wiki.


3. Edit the page. See Editing text in a Wiki page for more details.

4. Add an internal link to the page. It must be in special form to work. Here is an example:

[[Informal Learning:Wiki-Editing_text_in_a_Wiki_page|Editing text in a Wiki page]]

The first part is the link to the page and the second part is the text that appears on your page.

The link "Wiki-Editing_text_in_a_Wiki_page" cannot have an spaces or punctuation other than hyphens ("-") and underscores ("_").

A pipe ("|") separates both parts.

The very first part "Informal Learning:" is called a namespace and help organize the wiki.

Finally, the entire link must be wrapped with double brackets "[[" and "]]".

5. Once you have added the link, save the page. The link will appear in Red on the new page. NOTE: This depends on the skin used for the wiki.

6. Click on the link you created. You will then see a blank page where you can add your content.


7. Add your content, and then click on the Save page button at the bottom of the page.

Note: By clicking on the Show preview button you can see what your page will look like before saving.
