MediaWiki makes it very easy to link wiki pages using a standard syntax (see Help:Links ).

If you (or anyone else) create a link to an article that doesn't exist yet, the link will be colored red, like this.

  • This sample displays that underline style unconditionally. The underline displayed below the text of actual links will normally be hidden by default and made visible only when the link is hovered by the mouse or selected by keyboard navigation, if the wiki (or the user's preferences) uses the default MediaWiki styles.
  • The actual color of links is also dependent on the default wiki styles, and the design of Wiki pages may still override these default colors.

Clicking a red link will take you to the edit page for the new article.

Simply type your text, click save and the new page will be created.

Once the page has been created, the link will change from red to blue (purple for pages you've visited) indicating that the article now exists.

Usually this is the best way to create a new page, because it means that right from the start, the page will be linked from at least one other place on the wiki (and typically you will want to mesh it into other related pages later).

If you are creating a new page without creating any link to it, you may need to ask yourself: Does this page really fit in with the topics already covered in the wiki?

Also, how are you expecting visitors to find this page?

Normally there is no reason to create a page without first creating a red link to it.

If you search for a page that doesn't exist (using the search box and "Go" button on the left of the page) then you will be provided with a link to create the new page.

You can use the wiki's URL for creating a new page.

The URL to an article of the wiki is usually something like this:

If you replace ARTICLE with the name of the page you wish to create, you will be taken to a blank page which indicates that no article of that name exists yet.

Clicking the "Edit" page tab at the top of the page will take you to the edit page for that article, where you can create the new page by typing your text, and clicking submit.

Copy the following text into a page in the wiki:

This generates a box where users can simply type the article title and generate a page with that name.

This allows unexperienced editors to easily create pages.

Don't forget to set up redirects when you create a page.

If you think another person may search for the page you've created by using a different name or spelling, please create the proper redirect(s).

Normally a new wiki page can be edited by other people (that is one of the main ideas of a wiki!).

However, a sysop could protect the page, if desired, to prevent normal users from editing it.

Secret #2: Tell Your Story, Not a History Lesson

Whether you loved or hated history class, your About Us page should not read like a boring textbook.

Most of us don&rsquot want to learn the history of your company.

Sure, it&rsquos nice to know that your brand has been around for more than a decade, but do we really need to read about every minute detail of your brand&rsquos timeline along the way?

See, these pieces of information don&rsquot help your new visitors figure out how you can help them.

In our next example, there&rsquos way too much boasting and not enough information about how the company wants to help their potential customers:

Words like ongoing American success story and our massive network don&rsquot show us who&rsquos behind the brand or how they plan to help their potential customers.

Instead, we find a big brand experiencing ongoing success. Great.

Shareholders may be cool with this, but what about new visitors? How is this information going to help them?

Your About Us page is where you&rsquoll create a human connection with your visitors as if you were standing right in front of them.

It&rsquos not about showcasing every accomplishment and bragging about how great you are. You can dump these achievements on a separate page.

Your About Us page is where you get the chance to connect with new customers -- and it&rsquos one interaction you can&rsquot afford to mess up.

To connect with readers, you need to share an authentic story. And not your whole life story either, please.

Pare things down and get to the heart of your &ldquoaha&rdquo moment.

What problems were you facing that led you to create this solution?

Why did you decide to share your solution with everyone?

These answers will help you connect with readers who are in the same situation you were in.

By doing this, you instantly become a trusted expert. Someone who can help them solve their problems.

As a reward, new readers will progress deeper into your funnel and will be excited to learn more about how you can help.

His About Us page is as authentic as it gets.

Lewis admits that he had big dreams and wanted to become something great, but he battled with:

  • Not feeling smart enough
  • Not having any real friends
  • Struggling with reading
  • Being bullied and picked on

Most of us would never admit these insecurities and yet he did it within seconds of introducing himself.

And almost all of us can relate to at least one or more of the feelings Lewis was experiencing.

This is why he connects so well with his readers. He&rsquos created a growing audience that relates to him on so many levels they faithfully stick with him moving forward.

You can do the same thing for your brand.

Show your true story and show visitors that you were in the same situation they are and you can bet they&rsquoll stick around your site longer.

You can also keep their attention once you have it by designing a visually appealing About Us page.

Have countries flattened the curve?

Countries around the world are working to “flatten the curve” of the coronavirus pandemic. Flattening the curve involves reducing the number of new COVID-19 cases from one day to the next. This helps prevent healthcare systems from becoming overwhelmed. When a country has fewer new COVID-19 cases emerging today than it did on a previous day, that’s a sign that the country is flattening the curve.

On a trend line of total cases, a flattened curve looks how it sounds: flat. On the charts on this page, which show new cases per day, a flattened curve will show a downward trend in the number of daily new cases.

This analysis uses a 7-day moving average to visualize the number of new COVID-19 cases and calculate the rate of change. This is calculated for each day by averaging the values of that day, the three days before, and the three next days. This approach helps prevent major events (such as a change in reporting methods) from skewing the data. The interactive charts below show the daily number of new cases for the most affected countries, based on the moving average of the reported number of daily new cases of COVID-19 and having more than 1 million inhabitants.

Johns Hopkins experts in global public health, infectious disease, and emergency preparedness have been at the forefront of the international response to COVID-19.

This website is a resource to help advance the understanding of the virus, inform the public, and brief policymakers in order to guide a response, improve care, and save lives.

Type:PSCredential
Position:Named
Default value:Current user
Accept pipeline input:True
Accept wildcard characters:False

Forces this cmdlet to create an item that writes over an existing read-only item. Implementation varies from provider to provider. Even using the Force parameter, the cmdlet cannot override security restrictions.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Specifies the provider-specified type of the new item. The available values of this parameter depend on the current provider you are using.

If your location is in a FileSystem drive, the following values are allowed:

Creating a SymbolicLink type on Windows requires elevation as administrator. However, Windows 10 (build 14972 or newer) with Developer Mode enabled no longer requires elevation creating symbolic links.

In a Certificate drive, these are the values you can specify:

Type:String
Aliases:Type
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True
Accept wildcard characters:False

Specifies the name of the new item. You can specify the name of the new item in the Name or Path parameter value, and you can specify the path of the new item in Name or Path value. Items names passed using the Name parameter are created relative to the value of the Path parameter.
