How to make a small wiki

Learn how to make your wiki.

First steps

Follow the installation instructions and select Wiki. If you want to add the wiki later, install the wiki extension. The installation comes with three pages, 'Home', 'Wiki' and 'About'. This is just an example to get you started. Change everything as you like. You can edit your wiki in a web browser or text editor. There's no admin panel, no database, nothing that gets in your way.

Edit wiki pages

If you want to edit wiki pages in a web browser, you can do this on your website at http://website/edit/wiki/. If you want to edit wiki pages in a text editor, have a look inside your content/2-wiki folder. Give it a try. Open the file content/2-wiki/wiki-example.md. At the top of the page you can change Title and other page settings. Below you can change text and images. Here's an example:

---
Title: Wiki example
Layout: wiki
Tag: Example
---
This is an example wiki page. 

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod 
tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna pizza. Ut enim ad minim veniam, 
quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo. 

To create a new wiki page, add a new file to the wiki folder. Set Title and more settings at the top of a page. You can use Tag to group similar pages together. Here's another example:

---
Title: Coffee is good for you
Layout: wiki
Tag: Example, Coffee
---
Coffee is a beverage made from the roasted beans of the coffee plant.

1. Start with fresh coffee. Coffee beans start losing quality immediately 
   after roasting and grinding. The best coffee is made from beans ground 
   right after roasting. 
2. Brew a cup of coffee. Coffee is prepared with different methods and 
   additional flavorings such as milk and sugar. There are Espresso, Filter 
   coffee, French press, Italian Moka, Turkish coffee and many more. Find 
   out what's your favorite.
3. Enjoy.

Now let's add a video with the Youtube extension:
