Create a Wiki Page

Wiki page is the default page type on most SharePoint sites. The notable exception is publishing sites.

Creating pages (Non-publishing sites)
There are two main ways to create a new page in your wiki library:

  1. Create a link to a page which does not exist and then click on it to create the page:
    This is the recommended way to create a page because it is easier for people to find the page when another page links to it. Links to pages that do not yet exist have a dashed underline.
  2. Create a page that is not linked to any other:
    In the Site Actions menu, click New Page. This will ask you for a name and then create that page in the current wiki library.

Creating pages (Publishing sites)

  1. Create a link to a page which does not exist and then click on it to create the page:
    This is the recommended way to create a page because it is easier for people to find the page when another page links to it. Links to pages that do not yet exist have a dashed underline.
  2. Create a page that is not linked to any other:
    • In the Site Actions menu, click More Options...
    • The Create dialog opens. Select Page from the Filter By section.
    • The Create dialog displays the available page types for your site. Select Page.
    • Enter the Name of the new ​page and click Create.

 

If this is the first wiki page in the publishing site, SharePoint prompts you to create the required libraries to support wikis.
