Template:New article box
Starting a new page from scratch is something that can be done in several ways:
- First of all, you can find a box on the Main Page titled "Iztvoriti stranicu". You will also find it here below.
- The Wiki Way™ is to start from pages that already exist and follow links to pages that don't exist to create them.
In practical terms, this means you can go to your user page (while logged in, click on your username in the bar across the top of the page) and add a link to the page title you'd like to create, for example [[Kralj Světovit III]]. (Placing a topic in double brackets will create a wiki link. For more on wiki formatting, see Help:Pravjenije.) After saving, the link will probably be red, indicating the page it points to doesn't exist yet. Click on it to start editing your new page.
- A simple alternative way is this: enter the name of the article you want to create in the "iskati" box and press Prějdti. If the article does not yet exist, you will get the following message:
Ne najdeno nijednogo rezultata. Iztvori stranicu "Kralj Světovit III" na toj viki!.
Just follow the red link and there you go!
- If the page title you want already has an article on it... things may get more complicated. Come to Krčma (the Pub) and ask one of the moderators to do something about it.
- Another easy way to start an article is just to change the URL in your browser URL bar to http://isv.wikinet.org/wiki/NewPageTitle (where instead of words "NewPageTitle" would be the title you've chosen for new page). Usually it is easy to do as you don't have to type everything; if you are already browsing the wiki, you'll just need to delete the words after last slash (which are the name of the page you currently are browsing) and place there name of new page instead, then press enter. However, do keep in mind that this method will work only when name of the article you're creating does not contain spaces, diacritics or special characters.
- Article names can contain Cyrillic and letters with diacritics. However, avoid using the ampersand & in article names, as it can cause unforeseen trouble.
