This is one of the Nova Roma wiki help files.

This is a step-by-step guide to getting a basic article started.

Contents

Step 0:

Make sure an article on your topic doesn't already exist. Use the search function to search for possbile keywords. Starting from the Main Page, look for a categories that your article might belong to. Check in those categories for articles similar to yours.

Step 1: Decide on a title

Choosing the right name for your article is an important step. Read NovaRoma:Article Names. If you have any questions, ask one of the WikiMagisters or post a message on the NRWiki group.

Step 2: Get a blank page for editing

This is easy to do and you have two options.

First option: Type your article name exactly as you want it into the search box.

Second option: If there is already an article somewhere that will link to your article, make a link to the title of your new article, save and then click on your new link.

When the article is not found, you will see a message like this:

There is no page titled ":My page". You can create this page?

Click on "create this page?" to get a blank page with the article title already supplied.

Step 3: Enter, Preview, Save

Illustration: The editing controls; Save and Preview buttons

Enter your text in the edit box, click "Show preview" to check the page, and when it is finished, click "Save page". To learn more about editing and formatting, see: NovaRoma:Wiki Editing for Romans.
