Help:User Sub-Page Creation

(Redirected from Help:SubPageCreation)

It's not commonly known, but you can have more than just your Userpage and TalkPage for personal space on BattleTechWiki. It's as simple as creating any other article with the only difference being how you name it.

  • Creating a subpage for your UserPage:
  1. Copy your UserPage name from the top of its page. (Ex: User:YourName)
  2. Paste it in the search field.
  3. Add a forward slash (/) and the subpages name after your name in the search field. (Ex: /My Favorite 'Mechs goes after User:YourName to form User:YourName/My Favorite 'Mechs)
  4. Click on the search field's Go button and then select the red-linked subpage title (User:YourName/My Favorite 'Mechs).
  5. Build your page, as you would any other.
  • Creating a subpage for either your TalkPage or any other BattleTechWiki page is just as easy. Follow the same instructions, starting with the primary page's title. (Please keep in mind that subpages for articles are discouraged, and community consensus should be sought.)
  • Don't forget to provide a link to your new page on the original page (so you can find it again).
