Page naming for the MDC Wiki is relatively straightforward, but it's important you get it correct in order to take full advantage of the breadcrumb list at the top of the page.
Please also refer to the Writer's guidelines when choosing a page name.
Page names should use sentence style capitalization (only capitalize the first word and any proper nouns) rather than headline style capitalization:
Content with a unique title
If you are adding an article or other content that only requires a single page in the wiki, simply use the name of that article as the page name.
Content with a non-unique title
Wherever possible, you should try to create content with unique titles, in order to simplify the page naming as much as possible. If this is impossible, prefix the title with the topic, followed by a slash and no spaces.
For example, if I needed to add a page called "Optimization", simply calling the page "Optimization" would create a possible conflict as Optimization can apply to a wide variety of topics within the wiki. If my Optimization article was specifically about CSS, I would expand my title so it is unique (ie: CSS optimization).
If there are two or more pages which have the same "natural" title, a disambiguation page should be created.
It is a best-practice within this wiki to have unique article titles wherever possible.
If the content you are adding to the wiki requires multiple pages, use the following page naming method. This allows MindTouch Deki to build the breadcrumbs list at the top of the page correctly.
If you don't use the pathname-like hierarchy depicted here, your articles will all be located at the top of the hierarchy, instead of nested.
