To create ===Creating a new wiki pageNew Wiki Page===Unintuitively, you first create a link from to the main page where your you want to make before you can make the page best fits.   To do this, click make a new page: # Create an account and confirm through e-mail# Click 'edit' on the on the main page.  With Visual Editor enabled (by default) place or section where you want the link to your page to appear# Place the cursor on a new line in the section from which line where you want to your link.  Either and either right-click and choose "insert/edit link" or click on the "insert/edit link" in the visual editor menu bar. Then # A pop-up window will appear, insert a descriptive page title in the Page field and allow enough time for the field to complete searching.  Once the field has completed searching for pages of the same title, add a brief description which will become the linked text on the page.
===If the pop-up fails===
If there are issues with this method of inserting a link, there is another method that is a bit more manual.  Click to edit the page and place the cursor on the line where you want the link to appear.  Then insert a link by typing <nowiki>[[</nowiki> followed by the page name then followed by <nowiki>]]</nowiki>.  If you want the page name to be different than the link text you can separate the link by typing | between the link and the text.  Se examples below:
Tips for creating pages:
* Choose a descriptive page name and link text: e.g. Not "My Machine", but rather "Brand X Three Axis Milling Machine Retrofit"
* Create pages in an organized manner: Describe what the page is about, create clear sections that flow
