The CreatePageUw extension adds a special page (Special:CreatePage) that can be used to create a new page. This extension is a modern port of the precursing Uniwiki CreatePage extension.

RationaleEdit

New users often ask: "Where do I create a new page?":

You don't want to explain to them about redlinks, send them to some lengthy manual, etc.
Instead, with this extension, you can answer: on [[Special:CreatePage]].

InstallationEdit

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called CreatePageUw in your extensions/ folder.

ConfigurationEdit

Optional parameters for LocalSettings.php:

  • $wgCreatePageUwUseVE = true; - use VisualEditor instead of the usual edit form.
