There are several ways you can be notified in XWiki:

Notifications Application

In XWiki you can received notifications in the top bar. They are available in the menu represented by a bell. By default, users don't receive anything. They need to go to their preferences to select which kind of events (create, update, comment, etc...) they are interested in. You can find more information on the Notifications Application page.

Watchlist Application

In XWiki you can subscribe to receive notifications either by RSS (the feed is automatically updated each time one of the followed pages gets changed) or by email. By using the Watchlist application an user can add specific pages and spaces to a personal watchlist.

The watchlist application enables you to watch a page, a space, the entire Wiki and manage your Watchlist. Its features can be accessed easily by clicking on their corresponding button. The 4 available entries are:

  • Watch this page: you follow modifications affecting the page you are currently viewing (available behind the "Page" menu)
  • Watch the current space: you follow the modifications taking place on the whole space you are currently looking at (available behind the "Space" menu)
  • Watch the current wiki: you follow modifications taking place on the whole wiki (available behind the "Wiki" menu)
  • Manage your watchlist: change your notification preferences (available behind the "Profile" menu).

Share Page by mail

The Share Page Application allows sending a page by mail to someone (another user of the wiki or any email address).

RSS Feeds
