How to make a new wiki page - there are two ways to make a new wiki page. One way is to make a link then click on it. for example, on any existing wiki page, put in the text [[NewPage]], save (or preview) it. Click on the link and start making the new page. You can of course change NewPage to be the name of the page you want to create. Another really simple way to make a page is to simply edit the address bar in your web browser. Type in http://wiki.ggc.usg.edu/mediawiki/index.php/NewPage and you can start creating the new page (of course change NewPage to the name of the page you want to create.)
