Hi, I'd like to set up a catalan wikivoyage.org. Is it possible? If so, how can I do it?

Thank you!!

See Project:Expeditions. You'll need to find five fellow travellers to get it started. (WT-en) Jpatokal 21:36, 7 Aug 2005 (EDT)

Policy pages[edit]

An anonymous user created Project:Abbreviations apparently without any prior discussion, whence it's being voted for deletion right now. (WT-en) Ryan thinks those pages should normally be "created in response to some need for clarification", and I agree with him. I also think that a note on starting policy pages should be placed on this project page too, for clarity. What do you guys think? (WT-en) Ricardo (Rmx) 10:01, 23 March 2006 (EST)

Using input boxes for new pages[edit]

So, talking with Mark on IRC, I realized that we've got infrastructure already in place to make it easy to start new pages. I'm going to experiment a bit with using inputboxes and article templates to make creating a new page easier. See Project:Start a new guide. --(WT-en) Evan 08:55, 21 February 2007 (EST)

page creation error with visual editor[edit]

Swept in from the pub

Not sure of the cause of the problem but there is an error with creating pages in visual edit (not wiki source) mode. Change to visual editor, if you are not using it, create a new park article then change back to wiki source mode and look at the page in edit. It is not adding template for pagebanner but some code of page banner. Anyone know where the error is? --Traveler100 (talk) 19:34, 30 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm not sure. Is it an issue a user can fix after s/he has created a page? --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 14:00, 4 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This problem still exists. Difficult for a new contributor to understand how to edit in wiki source mode. At the moment I am editing new articles to fix the problem. --Traveler100 (talk) 13:10, 8 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
True. Let us know how things are as the issue progresses. If this is still a problem in a few days, we definitely need to take some action. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 13:34, 8 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Is Honiton a good example of the kind of issue you're facing? --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 13:41, 8 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes and Zakouma National Park would be another example. Try yourself, create a page with test name (you have the right to delete a test page later) while in visual editor mode, then switch to wiki source editor mode and look at the page in edit. --Traveler100 (talk) 13:53, 8 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
