Structures

Structures organize a group of wiki pages into a tree or book that can be easily navigated by users. The pages are placed in a hierarchy that you specify, with blank pages created where they do not already exist. Creating a structure is the fastest method for creating multiple pages at once. Navigation aids are automatically created to help users move through the structure. It's a great way to make a book.



Enable the Feature

Since Tiki3, the structures feature may be enabled/disabled at Admin > Wiki > Features.
In Tiki9, structure management has been extended: nodes can be moved around in the structure tree through drag and drop. In addition, "add new page" form has been moved into a dialog and add + buttons have been added to page actions

Requirements

There are some special permissions involved with structures, in order to allow certain actions for groups of users.
tiki_p_edit_structures Allows a user to be able to create and edit structures
tiki_p_watch_structure Allows a user to watch changes on any pages of that structure or substructures


Add pages to structures at page creation time

You can add pages to the structure at page creation time, having them updated in real time in the structure table of contents/menus:
  1. You need to have a structure created already
  2. You have an input field above the page to add a sister page to the same structure. If you also click at the box "child" before clicking to create the page, your new page will be a child of the previous one, and not a sister.
  3. We have a {toc} syntax in the page, which can explicitly say we want to display this and this structure, those levels, depth, etc.

Example:

Try it out
For example, note that this page is in fact in a structure. The house icon ( Image ) and the arrows on top of this page - they allow you to navigate between pages of this manual which is a structure (backwards: Image | up: Image | forward: Image ).

If the user belongs to a group with the required permission (see above), you can add pages to the structure from any page which already belongs to it:

You can create table of contents using the toc syntax (explained in the following pages); e.g. the one you see on the top (or "root") page of this structure by clicking on the house icon ( Image ):

Drag and Drop support for management (new in Tiki9)

In Tiki9 pages can be moved position in the structure through drag and drop. See Structure Admin for more details.

Structures Drill Down menu (new in Tiki10)

A Drill Down menu for structures has been added in Tiki10, so that when the user passes the mouse over a node in the line indicating the path to that node in the structure hierarchy, the names of all the children of that node will be displayed below the path to that structure node as links for easier navigation.
