Step 3: Paste the entire text of this page into a blank word processing document, or Notepad file.
Step 4: Edit out these instructions, and remove the < nowiki > and
< /Nowiki >elements.

Step 7: Go to the Places page, and Edit the page. Add the name of the area in the appropriate area, and use the double brackets on either side to make a page link: [[PlacesName]]
Step 8: Save the edit to the places page. The page you wish to create should now show as a link. Click on it.
Step 9: Paste in the info you've created using this template. Save your edit. You're done!
