9 -XWiki is divided into spaces. A space is a collection of wiki pages. Grouping pages in a space makes them easier to find and browse.
10 -
11 -You can create as many spaces as you want in your wiki and as many pages as you want in every space.
12 -
13 -Putting pages in the same space can be useful for the following reasons:
14 -
15 -* Pages located in the same space are displayed together in the navigation treeview
16 -* XWiki lets you easily create an index of all the pages in a space
17 -* The wiki's look & feel can be set at the space level (skin + panels)
18 -* User rights can be set at the space level
19 -* Search scope can be limited to a specific space
20 -* The wiki can be browsed by space in the WebDAV view

22 -The homepage of a space is usually created at SpaceName/WebHome.

46 +When you start you are on the main wiki. However it's possible to create other wiki (a.k.a subwikis). A wiki is a collection of wiki pages.
47 +
48 +This can be useful if you wish to have some clean separation between different type of content (for more details, see the [[Content Organization page>>Documentation.UserGuide.Features.ContentOrganization.WebHome]]).
49 +
50 +You can create as many wikis as you want and as many pages as you want in every wiki.
51 +
52 +Usually you start with a single wiki since that's the simplest from an organization point of view and then when the need outgrows this wiki, you can refactor the content over several wikis.
