There are three ways to create a page in GCpedia

  1. Through the search bar
  2. Through the address (URL) bar
  3. Using wiki code

Creating a page using the Search Bar

When you search for a page name using the GCpedia search bar, you will see a list of results which correspond to the key-words you have typed. If the segment you have typed does not correspond exactly to an existing page name, the system will prompt you to create one yourself.

For example, if you were to search "GCpedia Help Documents", and there are no results which match that phrase exactly, the following message will appear:

search bar, with text: GCpedia help documents. Below, a message appears "Create the page GCpedia help documents on this wiki!". The name of the page is in red.

If you click on the red link within the search results, GCpedia will redirect you to where you can create your page.

Creating a page through a web browser's address (URL) bar

You can create a new page by typing the address (URL) of the page you want to create in the address bar of your web browser.

For example, if you want to create a page titled "GCpedia Help":

  1. In your address bar of your web browser type the URL of the page you want to create (e. g. see the box below)
  2. Go to that page by hitting enter, or go, or whatever your browser requires
  3. You will be prompted to create that page

Creating a page using wiki code

You can also create a new page by using wiki code. On GCpedia you create internal links to pages by using the wiki code [[Example]] (two square brackets on both sides of the page you want to link to)

For example if you want to create a page titled "GCpedia Help":

  1. On an existing wiki page include [[GCpedia Help]]
  2. This produces a red link
  3. Click the red link, which brings you to the page GCpedia Help, which you will then be prompted to create.
