In this basic tutorial, we will walk through all of the steps necessary to create a new wiki article from scratch. If you just want to edit an existing article, much of this tutorial will not be of interest. Instead, you may want to read the editing a wiki page.
If you are writing a new wiki article and don't know if it's new, try doing a search above or check the title list.
Following is an example of creating a new wiki article called “Article Example”.
- Choose Site Actions→New Page. (site actions menu is in upper left corner when logged in)
A dialog box appears asking for the name of your new page and informing you that it'll be created in the Pages library.
- Type the name for your page and click the Create button.
Try to keep the title short if possible, you can use the text editor to type any additional title or other text in the page to communicate its purpose. The name for your page will be the page's URL and appear in the title and category lists. Your new page is created and placed in Edit mode.
- Add your text in the box that displays "Click here to add new content." If you are pasting text from another location either use the "paste plaintext" button in the ribbon or highlight all pasted text and click the icon containing an A with an eraser.
- Add Category
Click the icon to the right of the categories box. Select one or more categories from the list and add to bottom box by clicking select. When finished adding categories select OK. Your wiki article will automatically show up under each category selected once published.
- Click Save & Close. After review your article will be pubilshed.
