Creating a New Page

There are three ways to create a new page.

  1. Click on a redlink - link to a page that hasn't been created - add information, preview and save.
  2. Search for the title of the page you want to create, add information, preview and save.
  3. Edit the URL in your browser address bar to contain the title of the page you wish to create.
Example: http://www.elanthipedia.org/wiki/New Page Name

Be sure to preview your work before saving so you have an idea the impact your edits will have on the created page.

An important point to make is that capitalization matters in creating page names. The first letter will be capitalized automatically, but please capitalize all appropriate words in your title.
