==Creating a new page==
Very nice site!
To create a page on a new topic, enter the topic in the search box at top and click on {{Button|Go}}.  If the page already exists then you can edit it.  If it does not exist then you will be offered the opportunity to create it. Note where it says: "There is no page titled "whatever". You can <span style="color:red;">create this page</span>"; clicking on the red "create this page" will do just that.  Don't forget to check for alternate spellings, abbreviations etc.
We'd appreciate it if you follow the conventions indicated below - but nobody will shout at you if you don't follow them exactly or if you make any mistakes.
If the title is more than one word then usually ''only the first word'' should be capitalized, exceptions are people's names, book titles etc.
The topic (title) of the page should be included in the first sentence, as near to the start as possible, and it should be in '''bold'''. The simplest way to make something '''bold''' is to select it with your cursor and then click the '''B''' button to the top left of the editing box.<ref>See [[Help:Editing advanced#Font_appearance]] for a more detailed description of text emphasis.</ref>
To create a heading write your heading text, select it, and click on the big '''A''' button at the top left of the editing page.
The same result is obtained by entering <tt>==</tt> (two equals signs) each side of the text you want to be your heading.  If you wish to create sub-headings then write your heading and put <tt>=== my heading ===</tt> where "my heading" is replaced by the text you want to use. <ref>See [[Help:Editing advanced#Headings]] for a more detailed description of headings.</ref>
All pages should be in a ''category''.  Categorise by entering <tt><nowiki>[[category:</nowiki>''your category'']]</tt> where "your category" is the category you wish to use.  A list of existing categories can be found [[Special:Categories|here]].  If you cannot see an appropriate category then please create one. You do this by simply including the  <tt><nowiki>[[category:</nowiki>''your category'']]</tt>  at the bottom of the page.  This will create a new category in red. If you click on this red link and write a short description of the new category, it will become blue.

If you've never edited a wiki before, the first thing you should know is that it is very easy. Don't forget that if you make a mistake, it can easily be undone. You might also like to read our Newcomer's guide.

If you already know wiki editing basics but want to know more, see Help:Editing advanced. If you only want to know how to create a new article then go to Help:New article.

Very nice site!

Help! This "wiki markup" is too complicated for me

If you want to try using a text editor to work with teflpedia (or any mediawiki product) then you might try Open Office. This is a free package which, apart from being a free substitute for Microsoft Office, will also allow you to edit wikis directly from the word processor, though results may be variable. See our open office article for more instructions.

Talk pages

Every article page also has an associated talk page (click on the Discussion tab at the top of the page). Please feel free to raise any relevant issue on that talk page. You might wish to use emoticons when communicating.


If you want to test your wiki editing skills then please use the sandbox.

Or to practice editing you can create your own playroom:
in the "search" box type: "user:your user name/sandbox" and click on "Go". You can then create a page to do as you wish by clicking on "create this page".
