This is not a feature of Tiki and more of a community/content management thing and should be shared across all * sites. Thus, it should not be here. Please see where.

For naming convention of Tiki (the sofware), please see: Naming Convention


Naming conventions are very important for a wiki based site if pages are to remain useful and findable in the long run. It is recommended that Renaming permissions should be given for documentation editors to freely allow this to happen.

Examples of wiki page naming conventions in use here

(Based on Tiki Manual of Style)

  • Use Tiki, not TikiWiki or Tikiwiki (also see No WikiWords at Tiki Manual of Style)
  • All significant words should be capitalized.
  • As short as possible.
  • Page names should contain action verbs that clearly describe what the end user wants to do. Use "Configuring Blogs" instead of "Blog Config". (Alternatively, use of noun phrases such as "Blog Configuration" is natural and effective. The goal is clear communication delivered with a consistent style.)
  • Use Keywords whenever possible. Don't say "about the features" when "features" will do. Imagine what will be typed in the search engine and use that. But don't be hesitant to use a longer phrase if that is a better title for the page content.
  • Use the terms and menu options that appear in the end-user version of the software.
  • Avoid non-alphanumeric characters in wiki page name (especially punctuation).
