Help talk:Starting a new page

From POV-Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

"If you search for a page that doesn't exist (using the search box and 'go' button on the left of the page) then you will be provided with a link to create the new page. (Note that this technique doesn't work if you use the 'search' button)."

This appears wrong; (a) I guess it should read "(using the search box and 'go' button on the left of the page)", and (b) I don't seem to get the promised link to create the page.

I tried searching for "Gamma"; I'll now try placing a link right here and following it:


No, that doesn't seem to work either, as I don't have the permission. Maybe it should be mentioned in the "Starting a new page" page that it's only available for the "chosen ones".

As I'm actually just trying to find a "sandbox" for now where I can prepare a Gamma tutorial, I'll do that on User:Clipka; I guess it's the best place for that anyway.

Have a look at AllPages it will show all the namespaces on this wiki! Originally you were trying to create a file without specifying the namespace that it is to belong. For now you are fine where you are User:Clipka. A good final home for your document might be in the Knowledgebase namespace or (if you want that included in the official documentation) the Documentation namespace. I can help with placement when you're ready, or elevate your permissions.

As for the search/go I'm not cozy with that either. It's a core wiki behavior! --jholsenback 12:42, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
