To edit wiki content:

  1. Open the topic/wiki page you would like to edit.

  2. Go to the Edit section of the topic/wiki page.

The topic/wiki page is now updated.

Uploading an Image or File to Topics/Wiki Pages

In order to embed an image or file on the topic/wiki page, you must first upload the image or file in the wiki.

To upload an image or file:

  3. Locate the image or file you would like to upload and click Open.

  4. Click Upload.

Your file is now uploaded in the wiki and you can now embed it in the wiki’s Page text box so others can view or download it.

Embedding an Image or File on Topics/Wiki Pages

The item you chose to embed will now appear in the area where you placed it on the wiki. If you embedded a file, it will show up as a link that users can download.

Making a List of Available Topic Pages/Wikis

When a new topic/wiki page is created, there is really no way to access the newly created wiki unless you know the URL of it (see Creating a Topic/Wiki Page tutorial to figure out the URL of your topic/wiki page). A wiki macro (or custom function to insert dynamic content in a page) can be added to a page to display a list of existing topic pages in Topics or wiki pages within a group.

To add a wiki macro that generates a list of all topic/wiki pages:

 

  1. Go to the Edit section of the topic/wiki page you would like to edit.

  2. Type in [[TitleIndex]] where you want the list to appear

  3. Click Submit.

You will then see a bulleted list of all available pages where you added the macro.
