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.

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]].

Creating pages in other namespaces

If the user asks "where do I create a new category", you can answer: on [[Special:CreatePage/Category]].

If user visits [[Special:CreatePage/Category]] and types "Cats" in the form, then new page will be called "Category:Cats".
This works with any existing namespace: [[Special:CreatePage/Template]] will create "Template:Cats", etc.

User can override it by explicitly typing the namespace prefix in the form. For example, if user visits [[Special:CreatePage/Help]], but types "Talk:Something", then newly created page will be "Talk:Something", not "Help:Something".

NOTE: we are purposely not adding a dropdown menu "Select namespace", because this extension is aimed at very new users, and they don't know what "namespace" is. The form must be as simple as possible to avoid confusing new users.
