New and Improved Help Content

Click on the “Help” link on any Wikispaces page and you might notice some major differences.

First, the visual layout has changed. All of the help content now lives in a pop-up format so you don’t have to leave your Wikispace in order to get the help you need. As you move through help, bread crumbs will appear at the top of the page so you can easily navigate back to places you have been before.

We have also drastically improved help by answering more of the questions you ask. Help now covers everything from how to administer your space — such as deleting pages or editing your theme — to how to invite your co-workers and friends to your wiki. We have also added visuals so you can actually see how to create those templates for your new pages.

We are excited about offering you this new content and format, and want to give you a heads-up on some future improvements. We plan to add search to help so you can find the answers based on keywords. Until we do, you can search our help space at http://help.wikispaces.com to quickly find what you need.

We are also looking for people interested in translating help into other languages so our diverse set of users will be able to get the most out of Wikispaces. If you would like to get involved, send us an e-mail to help@wikispaces.com .

If you miss our old help format and content, you can still find it by going to http://www.wikispaces.com/help+index . Let us know what you think and how we can continue to improve this service.

    I am trying to embed my blog located at spearsteach.blogspot.com into my wikispace located at jspears.wikispaces.com.

    I think I found something in my searching, but now I can’t find it. Can you help? I am also trying to figure out how to get the html from my blog.

    I created a wiki today and really liked the pop-up help file. It was very easy to use. I didn’t go through every part, so I have already asked several questions via e-mail. I’m looking forward to what the wikispace will offer to my students and families. Thanks.
