A “wiki” is a web-based document which community members may use to collaborate and share knowledge. Wikis are especially useful when individuals are looking to work together on a project, share ideas for a new product, or simply create an up-to-date, easily-searchable knowledgebase of information.
The community platform Wiki includes the following features:
Rich-Text (WYSIWYG) Editing
Creating a wiki page is similar to writing a page using a word processor. Members may write text in bold, underline words, or write phrases in italics. Bulleted and numbered lists, headings, and tables are also supported.
Embedding files or YouTube videos onto a page may be done simply by clicking the appropriate toolbar buttons and selecting the appropriate image, file, or video.
Inserting a table onto a wiki page may also be done simply by clicking the appropriate toolbar button.
Integrated Keyword Search and Tagging
Every wiki page may be tagged by its author, and wiki pages are automatically indexed so they may be keyword-searched alongside other community content.
Notifications via Email or RSS
Every member may subscribe to wiki page updates via Email or RSS. This means that every time a page is updated, all subscribers will be notified.
Revision History Tracking and Rollback
Every version of a wiki page is always saved so that no changes are ever lost. Members may easily "roll back" to a previous version whenever they like.
File and Video Attachments
Media files of any type (including video, audio, photos, and presentations) may be directly embedded into any wiki page.
The community platform wiki supports direct integration with YouTube, so that members may embed YouTube videos with just a couple of clicks.
Wiki Page Rights
When a community member creates a new wiki page, they may specify who may edit and view that page by selecting people either individually, or based upon the groups to which they belong.
When other members attempt to view these "protected" pages, they will be alerted to the visibility of that page through a message that appears across the top of the page. This same type of functionality is also available for the Home Page of a wiki but an administrator will first need to assign a page owner to the Home Page.
