FAQs


1. What is Wiki?

Wiki is the place allows users to freely create and edit Web page content using any Web browser. It supports hyperlinks and has a simple text syntax for creating new pages and cross links between internal pages on the fly (rich text editor).

Wiki is unusual among group communication mechanisms in that it allows the organization of contributions to be edited in addition to the content itself. Like many simple concepts, "open editing" has some profound and subtle effects on Wiki usage. Allowing everyday users to create and edit any page in a Web site is exciting in that it encourages democratic use of the Web and promotes content composition by nontechnical users.

Wikis can be both simple and complex. On the surface, the idea of the Wiki is simple and elegant, and conceptually this simplicity makes Wikis a good candidate for modest documentation needs or informal, shared notes capturing. Because they're hypertext publishing environments, however, they can also become quite sophisticated and complex. This duality is precisely what makes them attractive and compelling tools for documentation.

2. How does Wiki work?

At the first time, user must create a space (a space is the first wiki page in hierarchy) or choose a space to add new child page by using Edit tool (WYSIWYG editor). The creator can choose an illustrative image for a Wiki page or space.


When a space/page was created, all members can send a report to admin of that site. Members need to select a report type and input report message for the report. 
For example:

+ Message type could be: Spam content; Wrong activity; Bad content;...

+ Report message could be: Free text-area where members can input their additional comments.


Specially, user can set restrictions for these functions: View, Edit, Delete on space/page to keep your content safe and secure. Wiki pages have multi-level and there is view-permission inheritance: Child page should only be seen if the user has the right to “View“ all its ancestor pages (you must be able to read a page to see its descendants)

 

In addition, user can tag, preview, print, download, move page or search a space/page.


Furthermore, there is a feature to save every edit and revision, history of a space/page.
