Actually Creating the Page

Admittedly, actually creating a new page (the place where you put your contents in), isn't exactly obvious. There are two ways:

Red Link

Instead of creating the page first, just link to it (from another page) as if it'd already exist. The link will be created and it'll be red. Clicking on the red link will offer you to create the page.

This is the way Mediawiki developers had in mind when designing this wiki software. The idea is simple and straightforward for an encyclopedia: while writing contents, just make a link for every interesting term. This way you either get these pages linked, or a red link, encouraging others to create the page. And all pages become automatically interconnected, no loose ends. Collaboration at it's best!

Is the RepRap wiki an encyclopedia? Yes, definitely! With emphasis on 3D printers, related technical knowledge, build instructions and user activity, of course.

Search for the page

The other way to create a page is to search for it. Type the desired page name into the search field, hit search and you'll see similar pages as well as a red link to create the page.

Embedding Pictures

Pictures (often) express more than a thousand words! Here are three of the most common ways to view them to the user. To see how it's done, view this pages' source code by hitting the Edit button above.

Pictures as side notes

A short description goes here.

The most basic way to embed pictures is to add them as a thumbnail. Clicking onto them shows them bigger. Typically used in instructions, because there you usually have quite some text, too.

As most browsers wrap text around thumbnails, you likely want to put in a {{Clear}} before continuing with the next chapter. This ensures the next chapter starts on a new line. Template:Clear

Pictures in a gallery

If you have a real lot of pictures and not more than a few words of text for them, using a gallery is a good idea:

Pictures in a Table

As an intermediate between the above two, you can use a table to focus on a number of pictures:

If you add a "thumb", you can still make the picture large, but also add some descriptive text.
"center" makes sure pictures align by their centers in such a picture-table.

On how to do all this, see source code of this section.

Text

You want text, of course. Pictures should be understood. See how large amounts look like:

May contain scaffolding.
This page may contain "scaffolding" - mediawiki text from the Example page that may not need to be there. It may help to delete the parts that you don't need. (more details)

To insert a video from Vimeo, just insert the code below, and use the number after http://vimeo.com/

For Youtube you use the following format, you get the video's address by looking at the video in youtube, you need the part between the "=" and the "&" so this video has the address "youtube.com/watch?v=2FU0v-3gloo&feature=player_embedded", you need the bold part. Get it?
