Welcome To The Wiki!
A wiki is a collaborative website that be constructed and edited by non-technical people. The most famous Wiki is the Wikipedia at https://en.wikipedia.org
XR is using a slightly different Wiki called Foswiki
because it's lighter on resources and easier to maintain.
Using Foswiki's terminology, the whole Wiki is called the Site
and within it are individual Webs
. Each Web is like separate website within the whole Site - the design can be different, and you can make private Webs.
A Wiki is made up of WikiWords
, which are just two or more words with initial capitals all run together like this: FrequentlyAskedQuestions
are automatically links even if the WikiWord
doesn't exist yet. A WikiWord
that doesn't exist looks like this: PleaseDoNotCreateThisPage
. Clicking on a non-existent WikiWord
brings you to a page where you have the option of creating that new WikiWord
Every editable page has an Edit button in the top right hand corner that brings you to a basic but functional editor.
You can experiment with it right now - go to the Sandbox
, create a page or two, and play around.
Every single revision of every page is stored, so you don't ever have to worry about losing data.
