Subpages introduce some hierarchical organization into wiki pages, with levels of the hierarchy separated by slashes (/).
Create a subpage by using a slash.
It's not possible to use forward slashes in the title of a page because MediaWiki will create a subpage.
Use slashes to create more than one subpage:
Help:Subpages - "page" in the namespace help<br /> Help:Subpages/subpage - child page<br /> Help:Subpages/subpage/sub-subpage - grandchild page<br /> Help:Subpages/subpage/sub-subpage/sub-sub-subpage - great grandchild page<br /> Help:Subpages/subpage/sub-subpage/sub-sub-subpage/sub-sub-sub-subpage - great great grandchild page

Use of subpages
Subpages are useful for organising information hierarchically. On the other hand, subpages tend to have a long name that is hard to remember, so it may be more user-friendly to use them as little as possible. You can also organize pages with the category feature, which is more suitable for creating a hierarchical network of information.
There are various uses for the subpage feature. Some of the typical usages of subpages are:
- to create archives of old discussions under a talk page
- to create scratchpad editing spaces under a user page
- to create other language versions of a document in multilingual wikis
