It seems to me rather counter-intuitive for this page to be called "viewing a wiki" when its subject matter is virtually exclusively "Editing a wiki".  This page is the ESSENTIAL information needed for a user on adding and editing pages.  This information is NOWHERE else (as far as I can see), and it is hard to find because of the (previous) abscenvce of links to it from the pages that are relatively easy to find. So there :)  Can "we" rename it???

Also, why is it necessary to have the three or four pages: WikiModule, Addin/Editing, and Viewing.  Adding/Editing is also a little misleading as it refers to the editing involved in SETTING UP a wili rather than adding/editing content of the wiki (what users would think of AS the wiki) after it has been set up.  Couldn't the three pages be brought together? I'd do it but I guess that would be rather presumptuous!!

Just a caution. MoodleDocs is a MediaWiki. The standard wiki that comes with Moodle is very different.  The Help:editing link is for MoodleDocs and could frustrate new users because some of those features will not work in the Standard Moodle wiki.  The "new" wiki that will become part of Moodle sometime in the near future should be different than the current "old" version.

Could we rename??

It seems to me rather counter-intuitive for this page to be called "viewing a wiki" when its subject matter is virtually exclusively "Editing a wiki". This page is the ESSENTIAL information needed for a user on adding and editing pages. This information is NOWHERE else (as far as I can see), and it is hard to find because of the (previous) abscenvce of links to it from the pages that are relatively easy to find. So there :) Can "we" rename it??? Also, why is it necessary to have the three or four pages: WikiModule, Addin/Editing, and Viewing. Adding/Editing is also a little misleading as it refers to the editing involved in SETTING UP a wili rather than adding/editing content of the wiki (what users would think of AS the wiki) after it has been set up.

Wiki tags

Just a caution. MoodleDocs is a MediaWiki. The standard wiki that comes with Moodle is very different. The Help:editing link is for MoodleDocs and could frustrate new users because some of those features will not work in the Standard Moodle wiki. The "new" wiki that will become part of Moodle sometime in the near future should be different than the current "old" version. Thanks for the edits --chris collman 11:46, 2 March 2007 (CST)

Chris suggestions

Humm, nice content but I am confused about how CameLCase notation relates to viewing. We have the Adding a wiki page, which also contains info on editing. I am not sure what "Viewing a wiki" means. Viewing to me is passive, read only.

The real good unique stuff here are tips about structuring a wiki. I am sure there are more examples out there.

  1. Suggest renaming this page "Wiki tips and tricks" then we can edit accordingly
  2. Maybe we need to change the adding page to the standard "Adding/editing a wiki page" page.
  3. Need to point the reader to either a specific Moodle wiki module format page or the general link I have seen but not visited
  4. I am staying clear of the standard, non-standard versions of a wiki module :) --chris collman 12:23, 6 November 2006 (CST)
Hi Chris, thanks for your comments :-) Adding/editing a wiki is for documentation on how to add/edit a wiki activity and is redirected from mod/wiki/mod. Viewing a wiki is for documentation on how to use the wiki activity i.e. View, Edit, Links, History and is redirected from mod/wiki/view (hence the title containing "View"). Re. wiki tips and tricks, would they be appropriate for the Wiki module page? --Helen Foster 03:38, 7 November 2006 (CST)
