Sometimes an article becomes too large and complex to fit on a single page. This is especially true if you have created a community page which contains a variety of content such as meeting minutes, RFPs, SOWs and FAQs.
In these cases, it is essential to keep related articles together by creating additional sub-pages under the main article, just as you would create sub-folders in a project's main folder on your personal computer.
For an example of this, look at Procurement community, which is located at:
Think of this top article as a file folder, that holds all the files related to the Procurement community. It contains many of the content types mentioned above. To keep this content neatly filed under one place — separate from other subjects/communities/projects — the content is filed in subpages:
Imagine that you've had the first meeting for your group or community, and wish to post the minutes to GCpedia. Navigate to your main article, and enter a slash and the new document title in your browser address box. Using the Procurement community as an example, you might enter something like this:
And create the new page.
Once you've completed it, make a link to the new article/subpage (e.g. the meeting minutes) by editing the main article's page to contain a link like this:
* [[Procurement_community/Meeting_minutes_September_2_2009|September 2, 2009 minutes]]
Should you accidentally create a document at the top level that should have been created under another article, don't panic. It is reasonably simple to move pages to their proper location.
