Default Pages Included With Your Wiki
This is a simple list of of all pages included with your wiki. You will hopefully create many, many more!
- All Pages is an automatically generated list of all the pages in your wiki.
- Bookmarks is for your bookmarks on this wiki. Every user has his/her own bookmarks page based on what they choose to bookmark on this wiki. To bookmark a page, simply click "Bookmark" at the bottom of the page! (Interwiki Bookmarks on wikispot shows you all of your bookmarks on all wikis.)
- Front Page is the page you're currently viewing.
- Events Board is a page where anyone can post events in the community.
- Help links to the main help pages on wikispot — useful for reference.
- Interwiki Map — link to non-Wiki Spot wikis using interwiki links by adding names and URLs of wikis to this page.
- Orphaned Pages contains an automatically generated list of pages with no links to them. Ideally, this page should be empty — keep your wiki well-linked!

Making new pages!
To create a new page, simply search for the name of the page you wish to create and then click the "Create a new page with this title" link. Another way to create a new page is by making a link to the page you wish to create from a page that already exists, following the link, and clicking "Create this page."
