Editors can create links before a page is made. These show up in red (in the wiki world, these are known as "redlinks"). Clicking on one of those links will take you to an empty page.

=== Editing ===
 
The Guide to YKHC Medical Practices uses a lightweight graphical editor to simplify the process of editing pages, but the standard wiki markup you may be familiar with from other wikis is still valid. You may find this [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Cheatsheet cheatsheet] helpful.
 
=== Pages with Structure ===
 
When a page has more than three headings in it, the wiki automatically generates a table of contents. Clicking a TOC item takes you to that heading on the page. You can show or hide the TOC.
