Creating Wiki Pages and Blog Posts

You can create wiki pages and blog posts using the same toolbar.

When creating wiki pages, be aware of whether you're creating orphan pages or linked pages. When possible, create linked pages because they are easier for users to navigate to and find.

An orphan page is a wiki page that isn't linked to from any other page. Because they're not linked to, the only way you can navigate to these pages is to search for them. Blog entries that aren't linked to from other pages aren't considered orphan pages, because when you view the blog, you can see all of its entries with the newest entry first.

To create an orphan wiki page:

  1. While viewing a wiki page, click the Create Page (+) button in the toolbar.

  2. Enter the name of the new page and click Create.

To create a linked wiki page:

  1. While viewing a wiki page from which you want to link to a new page, click the Edit (pencil) button in the toolbar.

  2. Position the insertion point where you want the link to appear on the page.

  3. Click the Create Link (curved arrow) button and choose New Page.

  4. Enter the name of the new page and click Create.

  5. Click "save."

To create a blog entry:

  1. When viewing the blog, click the Create Page (+) button in the toolbar.

  2. Enter the name of the new entry and click Create.
