The wiki is a collaborative document editor which is easily edited. By default any project developer can edit the project wiki. Like most modern wiki's all edits are non-destructive -- we keep a copy of every version.
The wiki can be installed via the "Add New..." link in the project menu bar.
Once installed, for each wiki, there are a number of configuration options available. In addition to the common tool options of permissions, Rename and Delete, there are also these options specific to the Wiki tool:
Set Home defines which page the wiki will redirect to when the base URL is used. By default, this is set to "Home".
For example, for the Allura project's wiki has "Allura wiki" set as its Home, so http://sourceforge.net/p/allura/wiki/ redirects to http://sourceforge.net/p/allura/wiki/Allura%20Wiki/
The Options page in admin provides you with the ability to remove three different pieces of the wiki functionality.
If you want to maximize the screen real estate of the wiki, or treat it more as a CMS, you may want to remove all three of these options.
Wiki content itself, like the rest of Allura tools, uses Markdown formatting, along with some additional handling for Artifact Links and some custom macros.
Creating a page can be done a few different ways, assuming you have the appropriate permissions:
[New page]), then click on that link.
To edit an existing page, simply use the Edit link in the upper right of a page (the pencil icon).
Wiki pages may also be created and edited using the [Allura API]
To add an attachment to a page, select Add attachment button at the bottom of the edit view, then follow the steps presented:
Repeat as necessary for multiple files.
To move a page, first enter the edit view, then change the name of the page. Moving a page in this way will preserve the wiki page history.
To delete a page, enter the edit view, then select the Trash icon in the upper right.
Deleting a page will remove it from view, however the page may still be undeleted if necessary. To do so, select the + icon when viewing the deleted page. You will then enter the edit view, and you may rename the page name as appropriate.
Deleted pages can be found view the Browse Pages view by selecting the Show deleted pages link at the bottom of the list.
To view the history of a page, select the Newspaper icon.
From that page, view a specific revision by selecting the Magnifying glass icon. The other icon will revert the page to that revision.
You can also compare revisions by using the radio buttons to select the ones to compare, then select Compare revisions
