Creating a New Page

To create a page, add its WikiName to an existing page and save it. After that, you can click on it on the revised page, since it automatically becomes a hyperlink.

You will then be presented with your new page, which you can edit in the normal way. After you first saved it, it will be automatically created. Pages normally1 cannot be deleted, so be sure to spell new WikiNames correctly.

On details on how to create and link to subpages, see HelpOnEditing/SubPages.

Creating and Using Template Pages

To create a template, follow the above description and create a page with a name ending in "Template"2. This page will then be added to the list of template pages displayed when you try to show a non-existant page. For example, NonExistantHelpPage has a link to HelpTemplate that loads the content of HelpTemplate into the editor box, when you click on that link.

Variable Substitution when Saving a Page

The following variables are substituted when a page is finally saved. Note that they'll appear unreplaced in the preview!

@PAGE@ Name of the page (useful for template pages)
@DATE@ Current date in the system's format
@TIME@ Current date and time in the user's format
@USERNAME@ Just the user's name (or his domain/IP)
@USER@ Signature "-- loginname"
@SIG@ Dated Signature "-- loginname date time"
@MAILTO@ A fancy mailto: link with the user's data

Note that saving template or form definition pages and using preview does not expand variables. Other than that, variable expansion is very global and happens anywhere on the page, including code displays, comments, processing instructions and other "special" areas of a page you might think are excluded.

Editor backup

If the user has a homepage3 indicated by the Home icon, a backup of save/preview text is saved either as subpage HomePageName/MoinEditorBackup (if subpages are allowed) or as page HomePageNameMoinEditorBackup (if subpages are not allowed).

So if you preview often, you will keep your changes, even if your browser crashes.

Remark: this used to be an attachment to the homepage named moin-editor-backup.txt, but that was changed with introduction of AccessControlLists (see HelpOnAccessControlLists) due to security problems.
