Now that we've been able to begin editing text on our homepage of our Wiki, it's time to begin adding additional pages for students to be able to fill-in the things were asking them to and the first of these additional pages is the Packing List. So make sure that you're inside of your Edit field of your Wiki and at the bottom of the page type in two left- hand square brackets and then type in Packing List and then two right-hand square brackets. Now what this is going to do is by putting this text inside of these double square brackets, it's going to tell the Wiki I want to create a link to this Additional Page called Packing List, but since this Packing List page does not currently exist, when we save this Wiki page, a link to this new page is going to be created for us to begin editing, so let's do it.
Go ahead and scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the Save button. Now we can see all of our text listed here, but if we scroll down, we can see highlighted in red and italicized a link for Packing List. Go ahead and click on that link and we can see a new Packing List page that has been created. Let's go ahead and type in Class Packing List and let's make it a level one heading. So we'll put a space equals at the end and at the beginning equal space and then in the next line just simply hit Return, and let's go ahead and save our page.
Scroll down to the bottom, hit Save, and we can see Class Packing List has been created, let's go ahead and edit this page and then create a link back to the Home page. So on the next line down here, type in two left-hand brackets and then type in Home, and then two right-hand brackets. Home was the name of the first page that we created for our Wiki, so now we should have a link that takes us back to the homepage. So go ahead and scroll down at the bottom, hit the Save button and there we can see the word Home listed. Now when we move our mouse over top of it, we can see we get the hand icon and the link become underlined.
If we click on that link, we're taken back to our homepage. Excellent! Let's go ahead and create Additional Pages now for our coral group and for our fish group. To do this go and hit the edit button, then scroll down go to the end of Packing List type and Return and then add two left-hand brackets type in Coral Group, two right-hand brackets hit Return and two more left-hand brackets Fish Group and then two right-hand brackets. These will create the Additional Pages for student research groups to be able to go in and fill in their group information.
So next, go ahead and scroll down at the bottom of the page, hit the Save button, and when we scroll down again, we can see that each of our links have been created. Now you know how to create Additional Pages within your Wiki. All you need to do is with two left-hand and two right-hand brackets around your text, and a new page will be created for you.
