You create a new wiki page by first creating a link to the new page and then clicking on that link to create content. In steps, that's:
1. Edit a page, place the name of the new page in brackets and then save that page. 2. The new page link will appear in red. Click on it and you will go to the editor for the new page. 3. Add content and save the new page.
