Working with a community wiki

Use a wiki to share resources with your community and collaborate with fellow members.


For more information on adding the Wiki app, see Adding apps to your Community. You must be a community owner to add the Wiki app to a community.

Adding a wiki to a community provides a shared environment where members can work together to create and update information in an ongoing, collaborative process. Wiki membership is managed by the community and there is a direct mapping between membership roles. Community members with the editor role can create and edit pages in the wiki. Members are given the editor role by default. Users with the reader role or who are not members of the community can read the wiki content but cannot make any contributions or changes.

When you add a wiki to a community, the wiki is automatically given the same name as the community. A Wiki area is added to the community's Overview page and, when community members start to populate the wiki, this area displays links to the five latest wiki updates. A Wiki link also appears in the navigation sidebar. Click this link to open the wiki.

From the community, you can do the following
  • To create a new wiki page, click Create a Wiki Page.
  • To open the wiki and see the latest activity, click View All.
  • To edit wiki settings, click Community Actions > Edit Community, and then click the Wiki tab.

The following topics cover how to create and manage a community wiki. For additional information about how to work with your community wiki, see Wikis.
