Page Structure

If you are creating pages try to add the page in the existing page structure.

Sub pages

Subpages introduce a hierarchical organization into the wiki pages. The levels in the hierarchy are separated by slashes '/'. A forward slash in the title of a page causes the page to be a subpage.

Example on page structure with 'Project' page as the root page.

Page title                      Url
Project/Gis_2                   http://www.c3learninglabs.com/c3fire/index.php/Project/Gis_2
Project/Gis_2/Doc               http://www.c3learninglabs.com/c3fire/index.php/Project/Gis_2/Doc
Project/Gis_2/Config            http://www.c3learninglabs.com/c3fire/index.php/Project/Gis_2/Config
Project/Gis_3                   http://www.c3learninglabs.com/c3fire/index.php/Project/Gis_3
