Creating New Pages

Technically, creating a new wiki page is simple: Go to the location where the page should be, and/or click on any link to a page that doesn't yet exist. The editing window will open up. Type in your changes and save the page.

Doing it the right way isn't any harder ... but it does involve a little extra understanding.

Wiki Categories and Page Creation

TTU's Organizing System

The TTU wiki is organized into a series of categories -- pages about stories, characters, eras, locations, etc. Most of these categories have their own page template. These templates are built to organize the information relevant to that type of page, and make certain that basic details aren't forgotten.

Pages in a given category should start with the category name. For example, the "Dragon in the Streets" page is about an era (CategoryEras), so it's called EraDragonInTheStreets. The page about the story "Kata" is in CategoryStories, so it's named StoryKata. Follow this convention for almost everything (exceptions are listed below).


Templates, like any other page, are stored on the wiki -- at TemplateXX, where XX is the category name. The wiki's "clone" function will automatically create a copy where you want your new page to go. Then edit the skeleton you've just created and you're on your way!

The clone function is simple -- just follow one of the links below (or, power users can manually add "/clone" to the end of a template name). Give the name of the page you want to create when it prompts you. Click the "edit after creation" box if you plan on filling out your new page right away.

Here's a master list of categories, along with links to clone their templates. Just click on one of the "create" links to get started.

Categories without namespaces

Pages in these categories don't have to start with their category name. They also don't have templates. To make one of these pages, just edit it from scratch, as described at the top of the page.

Special categories

These categories shouldn't have new pages created for them.

Supplemental categories

These categories are only used to tag existing pages.
