Adding a Page

There are two ways to add pages to an OU wiki: clicking "Create" and typing double brackets.

Clicking "Create" to Add a Page

The first way to add a new page to an OU Wiki is to click "Create" at the bottom of the page where you want to add a link.

  1. Click on the OU Wiki activity link with the cow print icon.
    Click on the wiki
  2. Scroll down to the bottom of the page you would like to link from. Type the name of the page in the "Create new page" text box and click Create.
    Create new page
  3. Type the content for the new page in the "Content" field, adding inline images or videos as needed. If you would like an attached file that does not display as an image (e.g. additional reference information in a PDF or Word doc), you can add that under "Attachments". Click Save changes.

    A link to the new page will be automatically added to the bottom of the current page.
