I was going to be brave and try my hand at creating a no-portal page for Alabama, but it's not letting me create a page with just the name Alabama. I do a search for that name, and see the portal page plus others, but nothing called just Alabama. Whatever trick I try in searching does not result in a red Alabama for me to click on to create. Alabama is a 'live' link but it takes me to the Portal page. So I'm stymied in even getting to a page I can start converting into. Any guidelines on what I'm not doing right or strategies to fool the search would be appreciated. Laralee 22:11, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

The Alabama page is currently a redirect to Portal:Alabama. The way the wiki is working at the moment you need to follow the Alabama link, it will display the portal page with the words (Redirected from Alabama) underneath the page title. If you then click the edit link you will be taken to edit the Alabama page. Once the redirect is removed, things will work more sensibly. --Steve 08:34, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
