i figured something out, so here:
+
== How to create a new page when editing and adding an internal link ==
+
+
you may be editing a page, adding some information in the editing pane, and you want to make a link to a new page.
+
* in your text, write the name of the new page. 
+
* highlight the name of the new page where it appears in your text.
+
* choose the Internal Link button above the editing pane.
+
  you should see [[ ... ]] double square brackets now surround the name of your new page.
+
  note that your new page does not yet exist. how to create the new page?
+
* scroll down to see the Save page, Show preview, and Show changes buttons.
+
* click the Show preview button.
+
  the system presents an editing pane for the new page with a caution that if you got this page by mistake, use the back arrow.
+
* enter something, anything, in the editing pane to create the new page.
+
* scroll down and click the Show preview button. if things appear as you like,
+
* click the Save page button to save the new page.
+
* use the back arrow button to return the Show preview page that you'd first been editing.,
+
* if all is well, click the Save page button to save your edits.
