5 XWiki offers to perform several actions on a document (a.k.a a page).
6
7 = Create =
8
9 There are three ways to create new pages.
10
11 == By adding a wanted link ==
12
13 You can **edit an existing page and create a link to your new page** (either in Wiki mode or in WYSIWYG mode). The resulting link will show up with a question mark next to it, showing it as a nonexistent page. Simply click on the link to create the page.
14
15 {{image reference="CreateInWYSIWYG.PNG"/}}
16
17 This will take you to a page with a message to create the missing page (as presented above). **This is the recommended approach** as it'll allow you to create a navigation while you create new pages.
18
19 == By using the Add Page action ==
20
21 You can create a new child page for the current page by using the plus icon located to the right of the page title.
22
23 {{image reference="AddPage.png"/}}
24
25 This will open the Create Page wizard where you can specify the title of the new page. If you don't want the new page to be a child of the current page then you can change the location of the target page using the document picker (by selecting an existing parent). Once you're done click the "Create" button and you will be able to edit your newly created page right away.
26
27 {{image reference="CreatePage.png"/}}
28
29 Prior to XWiki 7.2M3 the Add Page action was located in the top level menu.
30
31 == By entering directly the URL of the new page ==
32
33 You can also **enter the new page name (and its path) directly in the URL of your browser**. For example ##http:~//localhost:8080/xwiki/bin/view/Movies/Thriller/Rear Window##. If the target page doesn't exist then you'll get an empty page with a message saying that the page doesn't exist and there'll be a link to create it:
34
35 {{image reference="CreateInURL.PNG"/}}
36
37 = Create from Template =
38
39 Starting with XWiki Enterprise 2.4 users and applications can provide documents that can be used as template when creating new pages. The new document content (content, objects and other metadata) will be replicated from the template.
40
41 * After you have [[created the template and the template provider>>extensions:Extension.Administration Application#HTemplatesCreationandAdministration]] you can start creating pages from this template:(((
42 [[image:CreatePageFromTemplate.png||style="border: 1px solid silver;"]]
43 )))
44
45 * This example shows that "Wanted Links" also offers the choice to create the new document from the available template:(((
46 {{image reference="1ipopup.png"/}}
47 )))
48
49 = Edit =
50
51 This allows the editing of a page. See the [[page editing>>Features.PageEditing]] tutorial for more details.
52
53 = Show =
54
55 Whenever you click on a link to a page XWiki automatically shows the page in view mode. This is the default mode. XWiki also supports displaying the page in other formats that may be more adapted to specific circumstances:
56
57 {{toc start="2" depth="2" numbered="false" scope="local"/}}
58
59 == Code ==
60
61 You can view the content of a page without having to edit it (and thus you don't need edit rights). This option is shown only for users in [[Advanced Mode>>Features.PageEditing#HAdvancedMode]].
62
63 To see the code when using the Flamingo skin, you have to go to the More Actions menu, and click on View Source.

66
67 {{image reference="WikiCodeResultFlamingo.png"/}}
68
69 == XML ==
70
71 XWiki allows exposing a page in XML. This is not ordinarily useful, but it can prove useful for example if you want to write a tool that automatically parses the content of a page. As the XML format is well-defined for all pages, this is much easier than doing screen-scrapping for example. In addition this XML format is used internally by XWiki for performing imports/exports of pages and whole wikis.
72
73 == Comments ==
74
75 Users with the comment right can leave comments on pages. This allows them to provide feedback without requiring edit rights.

81
82 == Attachments ==
83
84 A page can contain attachments. See [[Attachments>>Features.Attachments]] for more details.
85
86 == History ==
87
88 Displays the version history of the page. See [[Version Control>>Features.VersionControl]] for more details.
89
90 = Print =
91
92 There are several possible printing options (what you see may vary depending on the Skin used).
93
94 When using the Flamingo Skin, you will find the Print Preview by clicking on More Actions:
95
96 * Print Preview: Generates a page which is formatted so that it can be easily printed using your browser's Print feature.(((
97 {{image reference="ViewSourceFlamingo.png"/}}
98 )))
99
100 = Export =
101
102 There are several possible exporting formats that XWiki supports: PDF, RTF, XAR, HTML. See the [[Export feature>>Features.Exports]] for more information.
103
104 On the Flamingo skin:
105 {{image reference="ExportFlamingo.png"/}}
106
107 {{image reference="ExportFlamingoPDF.png"/}}
108
109 = Delete =
110
111 Removes a page and puts it in the trash.
112
113 {{image reference="DeletePageFlamingo.png"/}}
114
115 A confirmation is asked before the removal is done.
116
117 {{image reference="DeleteConfirmFlamingo.png"/}}
118
119 {{image reference="DeleteFlamingoConfirm.png"/}}
120
121 = Restore =
122
123 To restore a deleted document or remove it from the trash (you'll need to have Admin permissions), check the documentation for the [[Index Application>>extensions:Extension.Index Application]].
124
125 = Copy =
126
127 It is possible to create a copy of an existing page. To do so, you need to do a [[search>>extensions:Extension.Search Application]] with Admin Rights using the title of the page you want to copy. You will then see a "Copy" button if you click on the "Page" menu.
128
129 After clicking "Copy" you will be prompted to enter the location of the page you want to copy in the "Target Space" and the "Target Page" fields. Click on "Copy" and you're done!

135
136 = Move/Rename =
137
138 A rename feature is available in XWiki. Its effect is to change the page name (that is, you get ##http:~/~/<server>/xwiki/bin/View/NewSpace/NewPageName## instead of ##http:~/~/<server>/xwiki/bin/View/OldSpace/OldPageName##) and all the backlinks linking to it. This means that you can easily move a page from one space to another, as well as keep them evolving with your wiki.
139
140 The rename will perform 2 refactorings:
141
142 * update backlinks
143 * update parent information
144
145 {{warning}}
146 Limitations: currently backlinks located in Objects and translated content won't be refactored.
147 {{/warning}}
148
149 When using the Flamingo skin, you can access the rename feature for a page by clicking on "Rename" under the "Page" menu in the top menu bar:
150
151 {{image reference="RenameFlamingo.png"/}}
152
153 {{image reference="RenameConfirmFlamingo.png"/}}
154
155 After clicking "Rename" you will be prompted to input the "New Space" and "New Page" names you want your document to have.
156
157 Now you can link to the page using its new name.
158
159 == Limitations ==
160
161 There are still some limitations on renaming:
162
163 * backlinks have to be turned on (they are turned on by default but if you have turned them off, rename will not rename backlinks and you'll have to turn them on again to benefit from this feature)
164 * backlinks in objects attached to pages are not currently renamed. You can track issue [[XWIKI-981>>http://jira.xwiki.org/jira/browse/XWIKI-981]] to follow the progress.
165 * backlinks are saved when a page is saved thus it may happen with a clean XWiki database that backlinks are not saved. In this special case, you can call the following in a page to refresh all links (you'll need to be admin to do this):(((
166 {{code language="none"}}
167 $xwiki.refreshLinks()
168 {{/code}}
169 )))
