Creating a page in the Maverick Wikis service is easy. You can create a page from anywhere within the site by clicking the 'Add Page' link located at the top of every page and beside the space link on the dashboard.

To create a page, you require 'Create Pages' permission which is assigned by a space administrator from the Space Administration screens. See Space permissions or contact a space administrator for more information.

There are two ways to add a new page:

1. Click on the 'Add Page' link located beside each space on the Dashboard and at the top of every page.

This link is only displayed if you have permission to create pages for the space. If you do not see this link, you probably do not have permission to add pages and should contact your space administrator.

  1. Click on the 'Add Page' link. This will bring up a new screen.
  2. Enter a 'Title' for your page.
  3. Click 'Edit beside 'Location' to change the location of the page.
  4. From the drop-down menu displayed, select the 'Space' where you want your page to be located.
  5. In the 'Parent Page' input field, specify a parent, if needed. If you want to move the page to the root directory of a space, leave this field blank.
    If you clicked on 'Add page' from another page, Confluence will default the new page as a child of the first. To choose a different parent, click on the Choose a Page icon. A pop-up screen allows you select a parent page from one of the tabs displayed or to locate pages anywhere within the site using the search facility.
  6. Enter content for your page using Confluence Notation, or the Rich Text editor. See Writing Confluence pages.
  7. 'Preview' if desired. Click 'Add'.

2. Follow an undefined link

In Confluence, you can create links to pages that you intend to create at a later point. This type of a link is an undefined link and is indicated with a plus sign. Clicking on the link brings up the 'Add Page' screen. Follow the same steps outlined above to create the page.

Handy Hint
In Confluence, the title of a page is used to create page links.
Naming Your Page
Confluence does not accept the following characters in the title of the page::, @, /, %, \, &, !, | , #, $, *, ;, ~, [, ], (, ), {, }, <, >, .
