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.

Legacy Edit

This information only applies to wikis not on Help:UCP.

Step by step (legacy) Edit

  • Addnewpagebutton 2019
    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.
  • 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


Options Edit

CreatePage useroptions

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.

UCP Edit

On UCP wikis, the creation dialogue boxes are a little different, and all pages are created blank rather than with a pre-made layout.

Step by step (UCP) Edit

  • Addnewpagebutton 2019
    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.
  • 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. You will also be given suggestions to create pages that are linked to but do not yet exist, known as "wanted pages".
    Create page dialog UCP

Additional ways to create new pages Edit

In addition to the add button in the top right, there are a few more ways to create a new page:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Use a Special:CreatePage link which can be added to a community anywhere where wikitext works.
  • Go to a page name that hasn't been created yet, i.e. https://wikiname.fandom.com/wiki/New page name and click the CREATE or EDIT button on the upper right.
