To create a new page, you have three options. You can either:

1. Wiki link

  1. Choose a relevant existing wiki page which relates to your new page.
  2. Open that page in edit view (n.b. 50 forum posts required).
  3. Add an internal wiki link to that page in an appropriate section (see Help:Editing#Link_to_another_wiki_page_or_article for help) and save the edit (click save page button). If no appropriate section exists, you could create one or add a See also section.
  4. Locate the wiki link you added and click it. This link should be red which means the destionation article has not been created yet.
  5. You are now in edit view for your new page. Proceed with adding content (see Help:Editing for help) and save the page.

2. Browser address bar

  1. In your browser address bar, erase the current page name then type the new page name into your browser address bar
    • Example: http://auschristmaslighting.com/wiki/Your New Page
  2. If the page does not exist you will be shown the edit view for your new page. Proceed with adding content (see Help:Editing for help) and save the page (n.b. 50 forum posts required).

3. Wiki search bar

  1. Type the new page name into the wiki search bar (top right) and press enter
  2. Locate and click the red link that says Create the page "XYZ" on this wiki!
  3. You are now in edit view for your new page. Proceed with adding content (see Help:Editing for help) and save the page (n.b. 50 forum posts required).
