[Mediawiki-l] Creating a page

If I understand, which I may not, you could create  links to the  
references by doing this:

#[[Reference:Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire|Decline and Fall of  
the Roman Empire]]
#[[Reference:The Hobbit|The Hobbit]]
#[[Reference:Red Spy Queen|Red Spy Queen]]

That gives individual sources. Perhaps you want to put all references  
on one reference page:

*[[Reference:References for Empire|References]]

Having created those links, clicking on one will take you to the  
blank page ready for editing or, if it was already created, to that  

Making Reference:pagename does add the page to that namespace.
