There are three ways to create a page in the Wiki:

  • Through the search bar.
  • Through the address (URL) bar.
  • Using wiki code.


Creating a page using the Search Bar


When you search for a page name using the Wiki search bar, you will see a list of results which correspond to the keywords 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 "GCcollab Wiki Help Documents", and there are no results which match that phrase exactly, the following message will appear:


If you click on the red link within the search results, the Wiki 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 "Wiki 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. Click create this page.
  4. The GCcollab Wiki will redirect you to where you can create your page


Creating a page using wiki code

You can also create a new page by using wiki code. On the GCcollab Wiki 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 "Wiki Help":

  1. On an existing wiki page include [[WikiHelp]]
  2. This produces a red link, Click the red link.
  3.  The link will bring you to the page Wiki Help, and you will be prompted to create the page.
