"how to start a new page? I know how to edit them but not how to start a
<end of Debbie's question>
There's two ways to start a new page.
One is to creating a link to a non-existent page on an existing page. Then
you just select that link and it takes you straight to an edit page where
you can create it.
This is the way I prefer and I used it to create the agenda pages. I edited
the software subcommittee page where I had already put the dates and times
of the meetings. I wanted to make the date into a link. I created a link
around the date (October 18, 2006). Jared wants our pages to all start with
our subcommittee name followed by a colon. In my case, that is
Web_and_Software. Here is the wiki code I used to create the link
[[Web_and_Software:October_18|October 18, 2006]]

The second way to create a new page is to put the address of a non-existent
page wiki page in your browser and try to load it. Since it's not there,
the wiki software will open up an edit page for you to start creating
For the teitac wiki, you put in http://teitac.org/wiki/ followed by the
name of the new page you want to create. The name can't have any spaces in
it but underscores and colons are allowed. With this method though you have
to be sure to remember what you named your page so you can link to it from
Hope this helps.
