Creating a page

There are three ways to create a new page on Bitcoin Wiki:

Firstly you can simply type the name of the new page you wish to create into the Search box on the left navigation menu. If the page does not currently exist, the page displayed will advise you that There is no page titled "[page you searched for]". You can create this page. Click the 'create this page' link to create the new page.

Secondly, you can navigate to the URL of the new page directly. For example, typing out https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/New_page into your browser's URL address bar and hitting the enter button will take you to a New page document. On that page you can click the Create tab to bring up the editing box.

Alternatively any page that contains a red link such as Help:Non-existent page indicates that the page does not exist. Clicking on the link will take you to a page where the first version can be written and saved.

Creating a subpage

Subpages can be thought of as children of articles in the document tree. As such they should be used when you wish to create an article that is intrinsically linked to the parent article. Articles that have been translated into different languages use subpages to store the separate content, for example the Main Page has a Main Page/pl which has the translated content in Polish.

To create a subpage, the same procedure should be used as above using the forward slash (/) to indicate the separation between the original page, and the subpage. Example:- Original page name/Subpage name.

Saving pages

Once edited, before actually saving your changes, make good use of the 'Show preview' button to preview the changes. Avoid saving too often or saving just to see what it looks like. Each page save will generate an entry in recent changes. Repeated trivial and unnecessary saves tend to clutter up that list and inconvenience users who make use of that list to watch for vandals or misinformed edits. Once you are happy with your changes, enter a brief summary of what changes you have made in the 'Summary:' text box and click the 'Save page' button.

The 'This is a minor edit' tick box should be used if small changes (for example, grammar corrections) have been made. The 'Watch this page' tick box is useful to keep an eye on changes to that article, these will show up in your 'My Watchlist' (found at the top right of the wiki when you are logged in) if any changes have been made.
