|The FAI wiki is built on [Atlassian *Confluence*|http://www.atlassian.com/software/confluence/]. Confluence is an enterprise wiki which enables groups to quickly collaborate on projects online. |
|h4. wiki Wiki concept |
|The essential features of a wiki are that pages are designed to be easily editable, and a historical record is kept of all changes. The assumption is that the more people who have edit permissions the better because there is then a greater chance of information being loaded into the wiki and being accurately maintained once it is there. Stacked on top of that are lots of additional features, for example logged-in users can create personal RSS feeds or email notifications for when content is added or changed. |
|Stacked on top of the basic features are lots of additional features, for example logged-in users can create personal RSS feeds or email notifications for when content is added or changed. A powerful feature is the use of macros in wiki pages which give the editor power to automate some things, for example to create a table of contents for the page. |
|h4. Spaces |
Confluence is organized in *[spaces]*. Spaces are indicated in the menu on the left by a globe icon. Spaces are organized by FAI commission. A main commission space may have an unlimited number of sub-spaces.
|Each logged-in user may also set up their own [personal space|Personal spaces]. |
|h4. Users & groups |
|Confluence is also organized to have *[users|Users]* and *[groups|User groups]*. Users log in, and the wiki knows which groups they are a member of. |
|[*Permissions*|Permissions] to view, create pages, edit, administer Etc. are organized by space and user group. |
|wiki or space administrators set up permissions for each group. |
|h4. Creating and editing pages |
|Users who are members of a group with permissions to edit pages in a space can do this very easily using an *online WYSIWYG editor*, or a [*wiki notation*|http://wiki.fai.org/renderer/notationhelp.action] notation*|wiki notation] *editor*, or an *'edit this page in Word'* feature. |
h4. Kinds of pages
There are several kinds of page in a space; the basic page, a news (or blog) item, a comment, an attachment to a page.
Besides regular text, page editors can embed [macros|Macros] in their pages which provide a large range of formatting and automation possibilities.
h4. Moving pages
