Create New Pages

  1. One way to create a page is to put your article name in search and click "Search".
    If no article with that name is found, click on "Create the page" on this Wiki!!
  2. Second way to create a page is to put a link of that page on an existing one. For example, you may edit this page to link to your new page. Save this page with the link, and you will see the page in RED font indicating that the page links to nowhere. Once you click it, you can now edit your new page.
