 +
 +
If you want to create a new page on Gynopedia, follow the steps below:
 +
 +
# Confirm that the page doesn't already exist. You can search for it in the Search bar.
 +
# If the page doesn't already exist, you'll see text such as, "Create the page for [NAME] on this wiki!"
 +
# Click the name that is a red link. This will redirect you to a new page, where you can begin editing.
 +
# You can use the template we have created for new pages (just copy and paste the template content into the page). Note that the template is merely a recommendation; it's not a requirement. You can create your own page format, if you prefer.
 +
## [[Gynopedia Page Template: Visual Editor|Template for people using Visual Editor]] (copy & paste this into a new page)
 +
## [[Gynopedia Page Template: Source Editor|Template for people using Source Editor]] (copy & paste this into a new page)
 +
# Once you are done, you can publish your changes.
