Pages in the Wiki Farming have the URL as http://www.wikifarming.org/index.php?title=TITLE OF THE ARTICLE. You can create a new page by typing in the Wiki Farming page url with 'TITLE OF THE ARTICLE' being replaced by the title chosen by you.

Creating a new page from wikilink

MediaWiki makes it very easy to link wiki pages using a standard syntax (see Links). If you (or anyone else) create a link to an article that doesn't exist yet, the link will be coloured red, like this.

Clicking a red link will take you to the edit page for the new article. Simply type your text, click save and the new page will be created.

Once the page has been created, the link will change from red to blue (purple for pages you've visited) indicating that the article now exists.
