About

This page will give instructions on how to use the wiki to create pages.

Creating a page

To help with creating pages, the boxes below have been created in each section, these will create the pages in the correct section without the user having to think about the path. All pages are grouped using sub-pages so the path for the pages is Main Section Page/Sub-Section/Sub-Sub-Section

Page creation boxes

Within each main section, boxes similar to the below one for pages within the root of the wiki have been created for adding pages to the correct section to make life easier. Just add the name of the new page and select the button and it will open the edit new page option with some text preconfigured.
