Creating a new page in Wiki couldn't be simpler. All you have to do is get to a page that doesn't exist, and start typing into it. That's all!


How do you do that?

There are two ways to get to a page that doesn't exist yet:

1. Just type the url of a page you want to create. For example, from the Main Page, look at the address bar, see at the end of the URL where it says Main_Page? Just change Main_Page to whatever you want! A blank page will come up and you can type into it. It's that simple. Let's say you want to write an article about poison ivy, just change Main_Page to poison_ivy, and there you go!

2. Click on a link to a page that doesn't exist: If you see a link in red, it is a link to a wiki page that does not exist yet. If you want to make it exist, click the link and start typing away. This is used in our Articles we would like to see page extensively. You can create your own red links simply by placing double square brackets around any word or term while you are typing up or editing an article.
