    Hello everyone. I´m new here and without making any promises it seems like a forum where i´d be wanting to stay.

    I have a question regarding the library. I see that I am able to find the existing articles and edit them information which I also obtained when searching for what I am currently posting but how about creating a new article.

    i read over the information on http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Starting_a_new_page
    and tried one of the options such as creating a new article from a search but i found nowhere to create a new article

    I have a feeling that im not supposed to have the permissions to create a new article am i right?

    perhaps its just me tired from a days work... can someone point me in the right direction?

    Hi fraganegra,
    Welcome to Tech Support Guy. :)

    Yes, You need 25 posts before you are able to edit and create pages in the Library.


    Once you have 25 posts, To create a new page...
    1. While logged into the Library, Type a page title into the search box
    2. Click the Go button
    3. If there isn't already a page with that title there will be a link to create this page. (see attached screenshot)
    4. Clicking it will present you with an edit box for a page with that title.
    5. When you're finished adding content to the page click the Save page button at the bottom to create it.
