Once Gorkhapedia.org has been loaded on your screen you will find that the Gorkhapedia.org interface has been divided into two sections:

1. Search

2. Create a new topic

Since Gorkhapedia is an encyclopedia it cannot show articles on the first page simply because they are too many of them. Gorkhapedia also offers contents but still due to the sheer number of articles, searching through contents may not be very effective, hence, if you are searching for a specific topic you can simply type the 'search string' on the box next to Search and get the relevant answer.

However, on the other hand you intend to create pages on specific topics, you can simply give the heading of the same in the box next to the 'Create a new topic' command and create a new page. You can also create a new page with a topic headline only if while search for a specific topic, you do not find it.

The rest of the Gorkhapedia page shows the following:

1. The 5 Most Recently Created Articles
2. The 5 Most Edited Articles
3. The 5 Most Recent forum Comment Posts
4. Apply for Membership at Gorkhapedia - Its Free!
5. Gorkhapedia's Most Frequently Asked Questions
