how to create a new page

There are two methods to create a new page in the love-letter-wiki

1.) the best method

On an arbitrary page in the wiki click edit this page up to the right.

Find the address line in your browser. In it there’s written:

http://eartwiki.org/hive/LoveLetter?action=edit;id=NameOfThePageYouClicked

Click into the address line, cancel everything behind id= and replace it with the CamelCase page name of the page you wish to create. It should look liḱe this:

http://eartwiki.org/hive/LoveLetter?action=edit;id=NameOfTheNewPage

Press enter. The empty new page opens.

You can write on the page now. It’s recommended to fill in a worthwhile summary. Before saving check the box this is a minor edit, please. Save the page with the box unchecked when you are sure you want the changes to be transmitted into the wiki’s connected web-services. The new page isn’t listed on the page recent changes recent changes until saved as a major edit. It is listed on the page recent changes with minor changes recent changes with minor changes though.

Writing NameOfTheNewPage anywhere in the love-letter-wiki creates a link to the new page. Example: this page, HowToCreateANewPage.


2.) the second-best method

On an arbitrary page in the wiki click edit this page up to the right.

On an arbitrary place on the page write:

NameOfTheNewPage

Click preview. Your entry now appears with a blue question mark attached:

NameOfTheNewPage?

Click the blue question mark. The empty new page opens, you can write on it …

Why this method is second best: In case a page of the same name as the one you wish to create already exists in a wiki sitting in a wiki hive that is connected to the love-letter-wiki via its near map not a blue question mark appears but a link. The link takes you to this page with the same name in the nearby wiki. To force the creation of the new page in the love-letter-wiki you have to use the best method.

Please do not test the creation of new pages in the love-letter-wiki. Use the en-eArt-sand-wiki instead. Thanks.


local names

Adding your new page to the local names is a second step. Find the right place in the list - alphabetic order - and add:

[http://eartwiki.org/hive/LoveLetter/NameOfTheNewPage name of the new page]

This allows you to link to your new page by writing [[name of the new page]] anywhere in the love-letter-wiki. Example: this page, how to create a new page.
