list all pages in this wiki

To create a page in a new category, just reference it in another page. For example, to create a catagory of plants and add the first page, look at this link: this first page in the plant database. When you click on this the first time, it will open the blank page. Save and it will create the category and the first page.

I use this technique for creating a database of plants I grow and recipes for using them. To add plants, I go to the List of Plants page. I add a plant to the table, and add a link that references a page that doesn't exist yet. For example, to add a page for Golden Russet Apple, the link would be plants:applegoldenrusset. A recipe for apple pie would be the link recipe:pieapple
