When you create a page with double colons (::) as a separator in the page name, you are using a namespace to define parent and child pages. Sub-namespaces are created by adding more than one :: separator to the page name. Each namespace or sub-namespace can have as many child pages under it as you like (within the resource limits of your hardware). The full path to each page is displayed in the banner with links to its namespace and sub-namespace(s) in the title.

For example, let's say you have these pages:Recipes:: is a namespace. Desserts:: is a sub-namespace of the Recipes:: namespace. Cakes:: is a sub-namespace of the Desserts:: sub-namespace.

If you open the [[Recipes::Desserts::Cakes]] page, the title contains links to Recipes and Desserts. The Recipes link opens a page listing all pages in the Recipes:: namespace, and the Desserts link opens a page listing all pages in the Desserts:: sub-namespace.

Namespace sub-menu

All pages in any namespace can be given a custom sub-menu by creating a Menu page inside the namespace. A sub-menu will be temporarily added to the main menu when any pages belonging to that page's namespace are opened. You can determine what goes into the sub-menu by editing the page with ::Menu in its name. The sub-menu will vanish as soon as you navigate away from its namespace.

For example, if you create the [[Recipes::Menu]] page with My favorite recipes! as its content, then whenever you open a page in the Recipes:: namespace, a sub-menu will appear with My favorite recipes! in it.

Info Sub-menus work the same way menus do. For more information on menus, see the WoaS::Help::Edit the menu page.

Reserved namespaces

Some namespaces are reserved by the wiki for its own internal use or for specific use by the user:
