Step by stepEdit

  • Click on the "Contribute" button on top right of your community. Here you will be presented with a dropdown menu where you will see a link to "Add a Page".
Contribute menu

  • The "Create a new article" box will open.
  • You can choose the article name by typing it in the box. This name will become the last part of the page's URL.
Create page dialog

  • Decide between a standard page layout or a blank page. The standard layout provides image and video placeholders as well as section headings. The preload contents for the "Standard layout" are stored at MediaWiki:Createpage-with-video on your community and can be edited by local admins.
Create page template page

  • A second way to create a page is by clicking on any red link on your community (which is created by linking to a page that does not exist). You will then be brought into the editor where you can add your content.

The "Editing" tab of Special:Preferences includes options for page creation:

  • Use a blank page as default for creating a new page - this makes the 'Blank page' option the default on the 'Create a new article' box.
  • Disable "Create a new article" flow - if checked, this disables the box for you.
