[Solved] How to add a new page to wiki?

Post by witek » 8. Nov 2010, 11:05

I`ve been looking into wiki. I successfully edited an existing page, that was quite intuitive. I`ve been trying to check what if I`d like to add a new page do user documentation and I got stuck. I`m not sure, maybe it was discussed or described here somewhere?

What do you mean "made up"? I don`t even know how to add an empty page. Something is counterintuitive here. Aren`t there any templates?

I`ve noticed that there is another lower case "m" at the end of the page". I tried to change it but whet I try to edit I only get:

Code: Select all

From memory, you simply enter the word of a new topic in your browser (after the usual Salix wiki path) & you arrive at a new page ready for editing.

For example try with => http://www.salixos.org/wiki/index.php/Whatever

What really matters is where you are going, not where you come from.

Create an address as I just did above. (edit: as Akuna wrote)

Not that I know of, but you can copy code from one page and use it as a template.

I'm not an experienced much with Wikimedia.

Like in every Mediawiki you can just search for the desired article name and then there is an option to create this page.
