You can create a new wiki page using two methods.

First: Log in with your Middlebury username/password (upper right corner of LIS wiki)

Method #1:Use the URL

  • You can use the LIS wiki's base URL for creating a new page. The URL to an article of the LIS wiki is usually something like this:

http://mediawiki.middlebury.edu/wiki/LIS/Help:Contents

  • Type this same url into your browser's URL search box, but replace Help:Contents with the name of the page you wish to create (for example, /how_to_create_a_wiki')
  • You will be taken to a screen that says:  "There is currently no text in this page. You can search for this page title in other pages, search the related logs, or edit this page."
  • Click the "Edit this page" link, which will take you to the wiki editor for that article (image below). Type your text and click SUBMIT. Your wiki page is now published and viewable by the public.

Method #2: Create from an established wiki page

  • Navigate to the page where you want your new wiki page linked
  • On that page, type in a unique title for your page where you want it to appear (for example, in a bullete
  • Click the link globe in the menu

  • Type or copy/paste in this unique title into the Link box

  • In the next screen (Search results), you will see ‘No page title matches.’ Click the link ‘create this page.’
  • You will see the same Wiki edit box as in Method #1
  • Type your text and click SUBMIT. Your wiki page is now published and viewable by the public.
