7 XWiki Enterprise is divided into spaces. A space is a collection of wiki pages. Grouping pages in a space makes them easier to find and browse.
8
9 You can create as many spaces as you want in your wiki and as many pages as you want in every space.
10
11 Putting pages in the same space can be useful for the following reasons:
12
13 * Pages located in the same space are displayed together in the navigation treeview
14 * XWiki Enterprise lets you easily create an index of all the pages in a space
15 * The wiki's look & feel can be set at the space level (skin + panels)
16 * User rights can be set at the space level
17 * Search scope can be limited to a specific space
18 * The wiki can be browsed by space in the WebDAV view
19
20 The homepage of a space is usually created at SpaceName/WebHome.

22 = Page =
23
24 A page is the basic unit of content in XWiki Enterprise. A page is usually divided in 4 areas:
25
26 * **Action bar** (located at the top): allows you to interact with the current page
27 * **Content area**
28 * **Panels** (either on the left or right of the page, on both sides or hidden)
29 * **Tabbed area at the bottom of the page** featuring:
30 ** Comments (what people have to say about the page)
31 ** Annotations (content that people have annotated)
32 ** Attachments (files that have been uploaded to the page)
33 ** Page history (every version of the current page)
34 ** Document information (parents, children, tags, included pages, backlinks)
35
36 The following actions can be performed on any wiki page, provided the current user has the rights to do it:
37
38 * Edit the page
39 ** Using the WYSIWYG editor: this is a rich text editor that allows you to modify the contents of your wiki page easily
40 ** Using the wiki editor: for users accustomed to writing in wiki syntax
41 * Print & export the page using the More Actions menu
42 ** The user can display a print preview of the current page
43 ** Each page can be exported in the following formats: HTML, PDF, RTF (for MS Office) and XAR (XWiki Archive)
44 * Watch the page
45 ** The user can choose to add the current page to his watchlist
46 ** Whenever the page gets modified, he will receive an email notification
47
48 Additionally, the following actions may be performed:
49
50 * Change page access rights
51 * Edit the page's objects and classes (You can find out more about these concepts on [[XWiki.org>>http://www.xwiki.org/]])
52 * Rename, copy and delete the page.
53
54 = Panels =
55
56 A panel is a rounded widget you can see on the right of every page of your wiki in the standard version of XWiki Enterprise. Panels are displayed within columns.
57
58 You can control panels in two ways:
59
60 * Choose which columns to display (right column, left column, both columns, none)
61 * Choose which panels to put in your side columns
62
63 Panels are useful for building menus or adding features to your pages. You can set different panels for each space in your wiki. Step to the next section to find out more about modifying your wiki's columns and panels.
64
65 = Dashboard =
66
67 A dashboard allows users to customize their pages (like the homepage of a space) by adding gadgets.
68
69 You can edit/modify you dashboard by editing the page which contains the dashboard.
