Wikisimpsons - The Simpsons Wiki

Help:Contents

This page describes how to start a new Wikisimpsons page. For a guide about using wiki markup, see how to edit a page.

Before starting[edit]

Before you start a new page on Wikisimpsons, you should always:

  • Familiarize yourself with our policies. Try to get a feel for how to best write an article. Our guidelines help ensure that the end result is useful for everyone!
  • Search first. Make sure that someone hasn't already started a similar page using a different title. (See Searching.)
  • Review naming conventions. Make sure that you are familiar with the procedure of choosing a name for your article.
  • Add links to your future article. Red links are links that point to an article that doesn't exist yet. (See below.)

Starting a new page[edit]

A new page may be started in one of the following ways:

  • Create a link to another page. While you are editing an existing page, and find a word or name that ought to have an article of its own, you can simply put it in double square brackets, [[like this]]. After saving the page, that word will link to the article, or will link to a form where that article may be created.
  • Start from an existing link. As you read through Wikisimpsons articles, you'll come across links to pages that haven't been written yet. Clicking on this page will take you to a form, which will inform you that "You have followed a link to a page that doesn't exist yet." All you have to do is start typing in the edit box. When you're done, click the "Show preview" button to double-check what your article will look like and to find any mistakes. Then click the "Save" button.

Caveat: Try not to make your new articles orphans!
