From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
You can use the wiki's URL for making a new page. The URL to an article of the wiki is usually something like this:
https:/simple.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Example article nameor
https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Example article name
If you replace
Example article name with the name of the page you wish to make, you will be taken to a blank page which tells you that no article of that name exists yet. Clicking the "edit" page tab at the top of the page will take you to the edit page for that article, where you can make the new page by typing your text, and clicking submit.
If you search for a page that doesn't exist (using the search box and go button on the left of the page) then you will be provided with a link to make the new page. (Note that this technique doesn't work if you use the search button).
Don't forget to set up redirects when you make a page. If you think another person may search for the page you've made by using a different name or spelling, please make the proper redirect(s). See mw:Help:Redirects.
Normally a new wiki page can be edited by other people (that is one of the main ideas of a wiki!) However, a sysop could protect the page, if wanted, to make sure normal users don't edit it.
