Starting a new page
For help creating an article, read Wikipedia:Your first article. This article provides help on creating pages other than articles, and provides technical details on the several ways to create a page. One of the user rights that can be set for a user group is “createpage”, the right to create a new page. A wiki can grant this right for example to all users who are not blocked (this is the default), or only to those who have logged in. The edit page has a link for Editing help, so you won’t be lost. For general editing matters and details on the markup language of the wikitext, see Help:Editing. If you want to experiment, use the sandbox first. Note: Sandbox page is currently blank. The purpose of this blank page is to use as a whiteboard to experiment. Anyone, including you, can write these help documents at m:Help:Contents, and you are most likely allowed to edit the site, Wikipedia that you are looking at now!
