How To Add a Wiki
Note: The information provided in this article is also available in the DocuShare User Guide.
A wiki allows you and other users to quickly and easily publish content on the web. Using a web browser and either the built-in WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor or simple wiki syntax, you can add and link web pages and edit content instantly. Wikis are well-suited for any type of project that requires collaborative writing.
By default, you use the WYSIWYG editor to create wiki content. Your user account property Text Composition Format specifies whether or not to use the WYSIWYG editor (Rich Text) or wiki syntax (Plain Text). Should you want to use wiki syntax, change the Text Composition Format property or, after adding the wiki, deselect the wysiwyg checkbox on the Add WikiPage. Once you have selected the editing method, you should continue to use it after adding the page.
To get started, you first add a wiki to a collection or workspace (DocuShare CPX only) and then add content to it.
To add a wiki:
1. Navigate to and open the container to which you want to add a wiki.
2. From the Add menu, select Wiki. The Add Wiki page appears.
3. In the Title field, enter a name for the wiki. The name can contain spaces and
4. punctuation marks.
5. Enter any optional information. Click a field name for a description of each property.
Note: If your administrator created custom properties, they also display on the
page. See your administrator for information about custom properties.
6. Click Apply.
The wiki is added to the container.
Note: When you create a wiki using a custom theme
Note: When you create a wiki using a custom theme, that theme is used to display wiki pages. Any theme you select on your User Properties page has no effect on the wiki pages. When you create a wiki using a default or clean theme, the theme you select on your User Properties page is used to display wiki pages.
