Creating a new entry in the wiki involves creating a new page. You can do that by adding a link for the page you wish to create to any existing page. It may seem counter-intuitive to create the link first but that’s the way this wiki works.
When you create a link to a page that doesn’t yet exist and save the page you’re on, the link will be created with a question mark tacked on the end as a superscript. Like so?. Clicking on a link with that question mark automatically takes you into the editor to create the new page.
The Category links in the sidebar at the left will take you to what we’ve been referring to as Category title pages. This, for the moment at least, is the preferred place to create a new page. So to add an entry to Basic Scientific Info, I would click that link to go to the title page, click the edit link on the action menu (top right or top bottom) to load it into the editor and then add my link to the list that’s already there. You may note that the links on that page are entered as a bulleted list*. Go to the bottom of the list, start a new line with an asterisk and then type in your link. When you save the page, your link will be created and you can click it to create your new page.
Try to keep your page names as short as possible while still describing the content. If you’d like a long title you can always add link text, but a short page name will be easier to work with when you’re linking to it from other pages. It will also make your administrator extremely happy when the time comes that the content has to be reorganized. That would be me. ;-)
Once again, full details on how to create a link are here.
* Bulleted lists (aka unordered lists) are handy for a variety of reasons, aside from just making the list of pages in the category look a bit more spiffy. Among other things, a page full of links in an unordered list can be used as an index in a WikiTrail. But that’s a subject that’s beyond the scope of this entry. Don’t you hate it when they do that? But I can point you to this as an example of a wiki trail in action.
