Creating New Obituary Pages

How to Create a new Obituary on

To create a new obituary page follow these steps:

  1. Locate an existing page, and on it add a link to the page you want to create.
    We suggest that you find the corresponding Category page.

To link to your new page, you must choose a name for it. The best names describe the page's contents well, so that everyone can remember and type the name easily.

BobDylan? bobdylan?

There are two main ways to create a link:

  1. Double brackets: Typing [[AaronMivelaz]] will create a link to a new obit page with the link text: AaronMivelaz?. On our system you can type [[AaronMivelaz]] or [[AaronMivelaz]] and the resulting obit will appear as JohnDoe?.
  2. WikiWords: Our site employs "WikiWords?" as link-creating syntax, so typing JAaronMivelaz will create a link to AaronMivelaz?. There is no need to type the brackets.

Note: WikiWords are compound words where the words are CapitalizedWordsSmashedTogether - this is also called CammelCase because the uppercase "bumps" in the middle of the compound word, suggestive of the humps of a camel.

You can see that the links to [AaronMivelaz?]] all have question marks after them. That's because AaronMivelaz? hasn't been written yet. Clicking the link will take you to an edit form where you can write and save the new page.
