I just created that, but I did so only to test that anybody should be
able to create new pages through the online interface.

And you should be able to. But there is a bit of a trick to doing
so. What you have to do is first decide from where you want to link to
your new page. So I went to /documentation and edited it to include
the following:

	[[Cookbook]]: Simple recipes for drawing

Putting double-brackets around a work like that is the ikiwiki way of
making an intra-wiki link. Once I did that, the documentation page
made a little question-mark link next to the word Cookbook, and
clicking on that link brought up the page-creation form.

Sounds like a great idea. I look forward to seeing what you have to
