There are three different ways to '''create a new page''' on '''OrthodoxWiki''':
+
Metropolitan Andrei 'Kusak' : correction 'Kuchak' of Evkarpia
 
+
==First method: Existing links==
+
Click on an existing "broken" link in a current page, that is, a link which does not take you to another article but rather to an empty editing box, like this one here:  [[broken link]].
+
 
+
You will be taken to an editing screen in which you can type your article.  Click the "Save page" button at the bottom, and your new article is made.
+
 
+
==Second method: New links==
+
Edit an existing page (such as your user page or an existing article) to include a new link, by either putting double brackets around a word or phrase in the article or by adding in a new word or phrase with double brackets around it.  Either way, it should look like this:  '''<nowiki>[[New article name]]</nowiki>'''
+
 
+
Click the "Save page" button at the bottom, then find your link in the newly edited article and click on it.  See "First method" above.
+
 
+
If you don't want to change the existing article in order to enable the creation of your new article, you can edit the [[OrthodoxWiki:Sandbox|Sandbox]] or your userpage to create the links.
+
 
+
==Third method: URL==
+
In the URL window of your browser (usually at the top where you see addresses like ''<nowiki>http://www.orthodoxwiki.org/</nowiki>''), type in the name of your new article preceded by <nowiki>http://www.orthodoxwiki.org/</nowiki>, including underscores for what would be spaces in the name, like this: 
+
 
+
: '''<nowiki>http://www.orthodoxwiki.org/New_article_name</nowiki>'''
+
 
+
Some browsers do not require the underscores, so you can type in the link like this instead: 
+
 
+
: '''<nowiki>http://www.orthodoxwiki.org/New article name</nowiki>'''
+
 
+
You'll then be presented with a few options to click on, including one near the top of the page to start the new article.
