Menu ->New wikipage?

posts: 4

Hello, I'm rather new to TikiWiki. I really wonder if its possible to add a new menu-item to the wiki-menu for simply adding/creating a new page for the wiki.


Wiki Home
new page <---- s.th. likte that
Last Changes
List pages
Orphan pages


Thanks, because I think I can't figure it out by myself.

best wishes

Wellcome, Kahuna:

You can

  • create a blank new page, with name "AddNewPage" (for instance), and add the content:
    • This will add the module "quick edit" in to the page, which tends to solve what you are looking for.
  • add a link to this new page (AddNewPage) inside the application menu (or any other you like), through "Admin>Menu>Application Menu" (n. 42).
    • Click on its tools/options icon, and add a new item with the link to your new page AddNewPage wherever you want (position 203, for what you saig in your example).
    • You may need to add "feature_wiki" in sections, and "tiki_p_view" in permissions.

However, yopu can add just the module "quick edit" to your preferred column, to allow everybody add or edit a wiki page directly from there, as it works here at tw.o.

Hope it works for you.

Cheers, Xavi

Thank you Xavi for your welcome and the kind answer! smile

Yes, that's I was looking for.

A new module with quick_edit worked out easily.
However the new menu link doesn't function the way it should.
Inside Admin>Menu>Application the new link shows up correctly
but not in the mainframe of the page ...
Hmm - anything more to recognize? (Hope it's not a lanuage problem?
my site is german)
