XWiki Enterprise is a wiki. As such, the content of its pages is easy to edit and modify.

Edit a wiki page

  • Depending on your wiki's settings, you may need to login to edit a page.
  • Look at the top left of your screen. Can you see the "Edit" button?


  • If you cannot see the "Edit" button, please login
    • Click on the "Log-in" button located at the top right of the page
    • Enter your username and password and click on "Log-in"
    • If you still cannot see the "Edit" button, you may not have the right to edit that page. Sorry!
  • If you can see the "Edit" button, this means you are alowed to make changes to this page. Let's go!
    • Click the "Edit" button
    • A new page opens in your browser. The content of the page is displayed in a rich text editor.
    • Use the rich text editor to modify content. If you're not sure what to change, find a typo and fix it ;-)
    • Once you're done with your modifications, click on the "Save & View" button located at the bottom of the page
  • The new version of the page featuring your edit is online right away! Well done :-)

You can use wiki pages for a wide range of purposes. They offer a great way to put content online and share it with others. 

Get started right away! Hunt the typo hidden in this page in order to edit and correct it!

Create new pages and links

One of the main strengths of a wiki is that you can easily create links between pages. Easy link creation lets you create a structure within your wiki and cross-reference pages. Links make content easier to browse and find. This is why it is important to create links between your pages. To create new links, highlight the term you want to linkify while you're editing the page, click on the "link" button, select a page and click on "insert". The link will be displayed when you save the page.

Links can be used as pointers towards pages that do not exist yet. When used for this purpose, a link will appear underlined, with a question mark to its right. Clicking on such a link brings you to the page straight into edition mode. The new page will be created when you click on "Save & View". This way of creating new pages is quite handy since it creates your wiki's structure at the same time than new content is added.
