How to create a Wiki page

Note: Only registered users can create and edit Wiki Cadillac pages.

The best way to create a Wiki page is to edit the page that is to have the link to the new page. Then add the link for the new page. For example if you were going to create a page on distributors; you would go the directory page, click on the link to the "Engines" page then the "Electrical" link. On that page you would add the link to "Distributors" page. The link would look like this.


Notice the link has double parenthesis around it. This tells the web site to make it a link to a page. If the page already exists the link will be in blue. If the page does not exist the link will have a question mark after it.

The easiest way to create a Wiki page is to use the "Quick Edit a Wiki Page" module on the right edge of the page.

Type the name of the new page in the input box, click on the Create/Edit button and the new page will open in the edit mode ready for you to start adding the content. The problem with that method is the page then becomes an orphan with no links to other pages and may be hard for other users to find unless you add a link from another page.

When you finish save the edited page. You will find the link you just made is only the word "Distributors" followed by a question mark. Click on the question mark and Wiki Cadillac will create the new page and open it to the edit view. Add your content and save it.

For additional help you can go to the Wiki Help page or in edit mode you can scroll down and see a quick reference at the bottom of the page

  • + : A leading plus sign indicates that this word must be present in every object returned.
  • - : A leading minus sign indicates that this word must not be present in any row returned.
  • By default (when neither plus nor minus is specified) the word is optional, but the object that contain it will be rated higher.
  • < > : These two operators are used to change a word's contribution to the relevance value that is assigned to a row.
  • ( ) : Parentheses are used to group words into subexpressions.
  • ~ : A leading tilde acts as a negation operator, causing the word's contribution to the object relevance to be negative. It's useful for marking noise words. An object that contains such a word will be rated lower than others, but will not be excluded altogether, as it would be with the - operator.
  • * : An asterisk is the truncation operator. Unlike the other operators, it should be appended to the word, not prepended.
  • " : The phrase, that is enclosed in double quotes ", matches only objects that contain this phrase literally, as it was typed.
