How to Add a New Page to the Wiki


In order to add any new page to this wiki simply follow the steps below.
Note: To create a page in a subfolder for organizing purposes such as /projects or /members, just make sure the URL you navigate to in step 2 has the /projects or /members folder before your page. Take a look at similar pages in similar folders in the All Pages section of the wiki to see the names of the other folders.

  1. Copy this text (three hyphens on top, three periods on bottom all aligned to the very left of the page):

title: Your Page Title
toc: false
categories: the category this page should be listed in

  1. Type in the page you want it to be in a new tab or browser window so that it’s either just /yourpagename or if in a folder then /subfolder/yourpagename.
    1. Example: - make sure to replace “subfolder” with whatever subfolder you want it to go into such as /events/ for events and /members/ for members, etc. Also change “yourpagename” to the file name you want to use in URL links to your page such as “pythonclass” for a python class or “telepresencerobot” for a project page about your robot.
  2. It will show that page doesn’t exist but “You may create the page by clicking here.” Click on that “clicking here” link to create it.
  3. Paste in that text you copied in step 1 into the top of your page. Change “Your Page Title” to the title you want to show as the title.
    1. Change toc: true if you want it to show a table of contents links at the top for a page with lots of sections and headers.
    2. Set the categories to an existing category or a new category you want to create so it will show up in the list of pages in the same category.
  4. Create the rest of your page with sections and images to best explain it as you want!
  5. Type in a simple description for your changes in the little text box at the bottom such as “initial creation” or “fixed some typos”.
  6. Save your changes and you’re done!
