Starting a new page on Fandom takes only a couple of clicks and is an important part of contributing to a community. This page, starting with the video below, will walk you through the basics.

Step by step

  • Click on the Add button (it appears as Add New Page if you are an anonymous user) on the top right of your community header.
    Addnewpagebutton 2019
  • The "Create a new article" box will open.
  • You can choose the article name by typing it in the box. This name will become the last part of the page's URL.
Create page dialog

 
  • Decide between a standard page layout or a blank page. The standard layout provides image and video placeholders as well as section headings. The preload contents for the "Standard layout" are stored at MediaWiki:Createpage-with-video on your community and can be edited by local admins. If VisualEditor is enabled and this pop-up opens when viewing a regular page, the layout option will not appear.
Create page template page

 
  • A second way to create a page is by clicking on any red link on your community (which is created by linking to a page that does not exist). You will then be brought into the editor where you can add your content.
  • A third way to create a page on some communities is using any inputboxes that exist on a community. A local community may have added inputboxes, possibly in Project namespace, to create a page with a preloaded layout. Local communities should direct users to these inputboxes if preferred.
  • A fourth way to create a page is to use a Special:CreatePage link which can be added to a community anywhere where wikitext works.

The choices in Special:Preferences

The "Editing" tab of Special:Preferences includes options for page creation:

  • Use a blank page as default for creating a new page. This makes the 'Blank page' option the default on the 'Create a new article' box.
  • Disable "Create a new article" flow . If checked, this disables the box for you.
