How to configure the home page of Mediawiki site?

Postby williamwalton » January 5th, 2012, 7:34 am

I have installed Mediawiki on my new website. But I didn’t get any idea on how to configure my site home page. I want my website home page like this: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki
I want to submit some articles in my wiki site, so I need to create 3 to 5 categories as appears in above link.
Can someone explain it to me in pretty simple procedures, how do I configure my wiki home page in 3 or 4 sections? Looking forward for your replies.

The basic knowledge required to do these:
1) How to add/edit a page
2) How to edit page with a category
3) How to create a mediawiki template

The related mediawiki syntax are:
1) [[Page Name]]
2) [[Category:Category Name]]
3) {{Template Name}}

Try to edit a page with syntax above and get start from there...
