Quick Edit Module

This Module allows users (with permissions), to create or edit wiki pages. Simply type the name of a wiki page and click Edit.

  • If the page exists, Tiki will open the Edit screen for the page.
  • If the page does not exist, Tiki will create the page.

Note: The name of the wiki page must conform to the character link format, as defined on the Wiki Link Formatting field.


You will see it listed at "Admin > Modules > Assign new module > Module Name (drop down)" (tiki-admin_modules.php).

You can assign a this Module to a lateral column (See Module Admin page if needed), or you can include it within a wiki page, using the PluginModule.
