== Creating sandboxes (user page subpages) ==
 +
I saw your post mostly about page creation and sandboxes in [https://forum.flightgear.org/viewtopic.php?p=334335#p334335 this forum post].  I am very happy you asked that question (which indicates it probably can be highlighted better in the help pages).
 +
 +
A sandbox is pretty much a subpage to your user page, in essence with the page name <code>User:Wkitty42/Name of subpage</code>.  The way I usually create them  is that I search for them and then click the blue link '''[http://wiki.flightgear.org/index.php?title=User:Wkitty42/Name_of_subpage&action=edit Start the User:Wkitty42/Name of subpage page]''' in the page that pops up telling that there is no such page (yet).
 +
 +
When using templates you are working on you will have to use template links slightly differently, as they are not in the template namespace. instead of <code><nowiki>{{Name of subpage}}</nowiki></code> you will need to do like this <code><nowiki>{{User:Wkitty42/Name of subpage}}</nowiki></code>.
 +
 +
If you forget to link to the pages on your user page, you can try the [What links here http://wiki.flightgear.org/Special:WhatLinksHere/User_talk:Wkitty42] link in the menu on the left.
 +
 +
 +
It will be interesting to see what you do with this. :-)
