Typically users want to create new pages that are linked to existing pages. Sometimes users also think of this as wanting to create a new link in the wiki. Same thing. New pages are created in wikis, and then those are linked to existing pages. For example, you may want to create a page for a meeting you are hosting on Jan 10th, 2006, and put a link to that meeting page in the AMIGO page. Or you may think that you want to create a new link for your Jan 10th, 2006 meeting from the AMIGO page. Here is how you will make this happen:

Short answer:

  • Add the following line to the existing page (in this case the AMIGO Page) where you want the link:

[[Meeting_BWH_2006_01_10|BWH Meeting Jan 10, 2006]]

  • Save the existing (AMIGO) page
  • When you look at the existing (AMIGO) page, there will be a red link labeled "BWH Meeting Jan 10, 2006" - this is the new empty link/page you have just created. If you click on it, you will automatically go to the edit tab for the new page, which means that you can now just start editing the new page you just created.

Longer answer:

To create a new page (or what sometimes people think of as a new link) for your meeting on Jan 10th, 2006 and a link to the AMIGO page, here is what you need to do:

  • Decide on a title for your page. In this case, let's pick the title Meeting_BWH_2006_01_10.
  • Decide on how you want to refer to this page in the existing AMIGO page. In this case, let's refer to this as "BWH Meeting Jan 10, 2006"
  • Go to the existing page where you want to create this link, in this case the AMIGO page. Start editing that page by clicking on the Edit tab. In the text, go where you want to add the link for your meeting, and add the following line

[[Meeting_BWH_2006_01_10|BWH Meeting Jan 10, 2006]]

  • Save the page. Note that the line you just added has four components:
    • it starts with two left square brackets to indicate the start of a link, and ends with two right square brackets to indicate the end
    • then has the title of the new page you want to create, in this case Meeting_BWH_2006_01_10
    • then it has a vertical bar (|) as a separator
    • then it has the text by which you want to refer to this new page, in this case BWH Meeting Jan 10, 2006.
  • When you look at the AMIGO page, there will be a red link labeled "BWH Meeting Jan 10, 2006" - this is the new empty link/page you have just created. If you click on it, you will automatically go to the edit tab for the new page, which means that you can now just start editing the new page you just created.
