One-Click Page Creation with ScrewTurn Wiki

The Sueetie Wiki has a much-neglected page called Feature Rich: The Applications that Comprise Sueetie. Its intent is to showcase the great features in BlogEngine.NET, YetAnotherForum.NET, Gallery Server Pro and ScrewTurn Wiki. I think the world of each of these apps and the developers behind them and look forward to the day when Feature Rich has hundreds of showcase articles on it.  The fun is in getting there, so we won’t let the fact that there are currently only 10 Feature Rich articles bother us for now.  I added three ScrewTurn articles yesterday, below is the first on demonstrating how easy it is to create new pages in ScrewTurn Wiki.


Can We Create That Page for You?

ScrewTurn’s one-click page creation support is a great time-saver. How it works is if you link to a ScrewTurn Wiki page and that page doesn’t exist, ScrewTurn will ask if it can create it for you, at which point you click the link to go directly into the page editor and start writing. Here we create a link to a page that doesn’t exist. The wiki filename is “BlogLivewriter.”


We’re going to return to the page we just updated where we see our BlogLivewriter page link is in bold. ScrewTurn automatically sets the font to bold to indicate that there is no valid wiki page for this link.


We click on the link to the non-existent page where ScrewTurn prompts us with “You can…create the Page.”


Upon clicking the “create the Page” link we go directly into the editor for the name page where its name and title is entered for us. The only thing that remains is the writing part.

A long time developer, I was an early adopter of Linux in the mid-90's for a few years until I entered corporate environments and worked with Microsoft technologies like ASP, then .NET. In 2008 I released Sueetie, an Online Community Platform built in .NET. In late 2012 I returned to my Linux roots and locked in on Java development. Much of my work is available on GitHub.
