There are two main ways to create a page:

  1. Perform a search for the new title with the Go button. When the search finds nothing, click on the red link "create this page".
  2. If you're edting a page and want to link to a new page, create the link as usual, then save the page. Clicking on the redlink allows you to start editing the new page (don't forget to save).

Detailed instructions

  • Type the name of the new page in the search field to the left.
  • Click Go.
  • If there is no page titled with that name, you can create the page by clicking create this page under search results.
  • Add information. Do not worry about formatting or completeness if you are not sure how to do it. Others will help and changes are easily made. Be bold.
  • Please put at least one category tag at the end, for example: [[Category:Renewable energy]]. If you're keen, you might want to browse the categories, or create a new one if there isn't a similar one already.
  • Click Show preview to see what you have created.
  • If you would like be alerted when someone makes a change to this page, select Watch this page.
  • Add a Summary and click Save Page when you are satisfied. Come back as often as you like, to make changes.
