Wiki


At the heart of Tiki is the Wiki feature, which enables users to create and edit a virtually unlimited number of content pages, even if they don't know any HTML. On the surface, the Wiki feature can be thought of as an exceptionally easy-to-use tool for adding content to a Tiki-powered Web site but this view understates this feature's significance. Wikis are, put simply, perhaps the most useful tool yet created for online teamwork and collaboration. There are several standalone Wiki server packages available (see "Useful Links," below); Tiki's Wiki feature is among the most feature-rich and stable available, and what is more, gives you a wide range of additional ways of organizing and looking at collaboratively developed data (including forums, articles, and blogs).

To grasp the nature and utility of Tiki's Wiki feature, you'll need to understand the simple (but important) design philosophy that underlies all Wiki software (see "Understanding Wikis," below). Then take a look at "Feature Overview," also below, for a birds-eye scan of the many capabilities of Tiki's implementation of the underlying Wiki concept.

Understanding Wikis

Don't let the wide-open read/write access philosophy scare you off. Throughout the world, leading corporations and universities are quietly using Wiki software to facilitate team-based, collaborative writing and they're reporting success after success. To be sure, authors need to know what they're getting into; after all, someone might come along and make changes to the "brilliant page" they just posted. (Of course, the original author can go back in and remove the changes, but it would be much better to revise the page to show that there are differing points of view!) To avoid ego-related squabbles, Tiki administrators need to explain the Wiki philosophy to team members (and provide plenty of tools that enable users to work through conflicts regarding page content).


Feature Overview

Tiki's Wiki feature enables users as well as admins to create virtually limitless numbers of readable, Web-accessible pages without the need to learn HTML or master complicated file uploading protocols. No matter who originally created a given Wiki page, it is almost instantly accessible for editing, providing the user has the appropriate permissions and the page has not been locked.

When a Wiki page is opened for editing, authors can make use of Wiki Syntax, a set of formatting codes that is designed for maximum ease of use. If they have the appropriate permissions, they can also use HTML. Even if they use no formatting at all, the saved page will still look pretty much as the author intended, because Tiki reproduces carriage returns and blank lines the way they look in the textarea input box. Optionally, Wiki pages can include graphics, and users (with the appropriate permissions) can attach files of any type. Users can include three types of links in Wiki pages: links to other Wiki pages within the same Tiki site, links to external Wikis, and Web links (see Wiki Linking ). Users can also draw from a large and growing list of Wiki Plugin, which provide a variety of enhancements (including split-page formats, a Jabber client, automatically included article text, and many more). They can also categorize pages using Category, if these have been enabled and previously created by the site's administrator.

When a saved page is displayed, users (assuming they have the appropriate permissions) can save the page to their local systems, export the page to a PDF file, view the page in a format suitable for printing, or save the page to their MyTiki notepad. They can also monitor the page, which means that they'll receive e-mail if a change is made to the page. They can view the page's history, including previous versions of the page and differences among the various versions. They can see an automatically generated list of similar pages, as well as a list of pages (called backlinks) that contain links to the current page.
