After you've created a wiki, it's available for editing. [[Viewing a wiki]] contains information on adding and editing wiki pages.

===Wiki mode===
 +
*Choose between "Individual wiki" where each student gets their own, or "Collaborative wiki" where students work together on a single wiki. (Group mode may also be used along with a collaborative wiki.)
 +
===First page name===
 +
*The name you add here will form the first page of your new wiki. It is a required field and once  a name has been entered,it can't be changed.

==Wiki formats==

*Set the default type of editing your wiki will use.If you are at all unsure, select HTML. Chooose from:
 +
**HTML - editing using the normal text editor such as [[Atto]]
 +
**Creole - a popular wiki editing language.
 +
**NWiki - a wiki editing language similar to Mediawiki.
  
===Print wiki name of every page===
+
Note: Creole and Nwiki have the same toolbar but slightly different syntax. See [[Creole format]] and [[Nwiki markup]]
If you select this option, the top of each page will have the name of the wiki.
 
  
===HTML mode===
+
[[File:WikiFormat.png]]
There are three options: No HTML, safe HTML or HTML only. 'No HTML' will display all HTML tags as tags. 'Safe HTML' will allow certain tags to be displayed. 'HTML only' enables the [[HTML editor]] to display in [[Common_acronyms#N_to_Z|WYSIWYG]].
 
  
===Allow binary files===
+
*Check "Force format" if you want to control the format your learners will use.
Binary files are graphics, audio, video, and other non-text resources. If you want students to be able to add files as attachments, set this to Yes.  
 
  
===Wiki auto-linking options===
+
==Other settings==
A new page can be created in the wiki by typing a word using CamelCase i.e. with a capital letter at the beginning and a capital letter somewhere else in the word. It's called CamelCase because the two capital letters resemble a two-humped camel. CamelCase combines all the words for the link into one word. Each word in the link is capitalized. When a word is added in CamelCase, the wiki automatically creates a new page and makes the word a link. You can disable this feature if you wish, so that typing a word enclosed in square brackets is the only way of creating a new page.
 
  
CamelCase is not always desirable, as some text is written in it. For example a file name might be MyFile_2007_Feb.jpg.
+
See [[Common module settings]], [[Restrict access]] and [[Activity completion]]. (Note that activity completion for a wiki is 'require view' only.) Wikis may be [[Tags|tagged]] and have [[Competencies|competencies]] attached to them.
  
===Student admin options===
+
==Locally assigned roles==
When students can edit a page, you can allow them certain administrative privileges in the wiki (see [[Wiki administration]]).
 
  
===Page name===
+
Selected users can be given additional roles in the wiki activity from the Locally assigned roles link from the gear menu in the wiki (Boost theme) or, for other themes, from ''Administration> Wiki administration > Locally assigned roles''.
You may wish to seed the wiki with a page name for the first page.
 
  
===Choose an initial page===
+
==Wiki capabilities==
This can be the first wiki page that is created, or a way to switch to a different front page. Other files in the same directory as the first wiki page you select will also become part of the initial wiki - see:
 
http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=8501
 
  
==Common module settings==
+
Role permissions for the activity can be changed from the Permissions link in the gear menu within the wiki (Boost theme) or, for other themes from Administration>Wiki administration>Permissions.
The [[Common module settings]] section appears in many modules besides wiki. It sets [[Groups]] interactions levels and the ID number.
