Creating a new Wiki page

The easiest way to create a new page within the wiki is search for the non-existent page in the Search box.

For example, if you search for "NoSuchPage", the Search results will show:

There were no results matching the query.
Create the page "NoSuchPage" on this wiki!
Another way is to add, while editing a page:
[[New Wiki Page]]

Clicking on the resulting [[New Wiki Page]] link will re-direct to a screen that states:

You've followed a link to a page that doesn't exist yet. To create the page, start typing in the box below
(see the help page for more info). If you are here by mistake, just click your browser's back button. 

At this point you can enter text for the "new page".

Naming a New Wiki Page

Be as specific as possible when naming your new wiki page, so that it is more readily found when searching.

Categorizing a New Wiki Page

A wiki category is a MediaWiki feature that provides automatic indexes that are useful to users in searching and navigating the wiki page.

A category can be added to a page by entering the following on a the page:

[[Category:Category Name]]

where "Category Name" is an appropriate name.

Categories

Categories should be added as appropriate to pages upon creation.
