Hi -

I'm new to the list and new to wikimedia.  Sorry if this is a simple 
question - but I've read through the online documentation and can't 
seem to find any info about this.

I recently installed 1.4b6 "out of the box" and am trying to figure out 
a way to make it easy for my users to create new articles.

On en.wikipedia.org, if a user searches for something but there is no 
match, "create an article with this title" and "put up a request for 
it" links show up on the results page.

But on my installation, there is no easy way (that I've been able to 
find) to create new articles other than the direct-URL method.

Is there any way to turn this on somewhere, or do I need to do custom
