Page Level Permissions for Your Wiki

Wikispaces now offers page level permissions on our Super and Private Label plans! You can control who has access to view or edit individual pages on your wiki, giving you an even more customized wiki for your company, school, or organization.

Don’t yet have a Super or Private Label plan? Create a free 30-day trial and try out this powerful new feature in your organization.

With page permissions, you can now decide which of these four groups can view or edit each page:

  • Organizers of your wiki
  • Members of your wiki
  • People who are signed in
  • People who are not signed in

So let’s say you are a non-profit with a protected wiki that anyone can visit. You want your team to coordinate some projects privately. With page permissions, you can set more restrictive access to these pages, making them viewable only to members.

If you’re a business with a private wiki for your company, but are looking to open a dialogue with customers, you can change permissions on certain pages, opening them up to anyone.

To turn on page permissions for a page, go to Manage Wiki, Pages, and then the Actions drop-down next to the page you wish to change. You’ll see an option there to set page permissions for that page. When you turn page permissions on, they will override your wiki permissions. You can also set permissions for a page by going to that page, clicking the drop-down menu on the page tab and then clicking on page permissions.

Begin a free 30-day trial and enjoy the increased customization and flexibility of page level permissions.

    can I limit access to a page to one user? if I read your post correctly you can restrict access to a class of users but not an individual user.

    Steve,

    Page level permissions are for a category of users. If you want to restrict access to individual users, we have the Private Label service. You can create an unlimited number of wikis on your site and restrict access to a wiki to individual members on your site.

    If you are interested in how other companies or organizations are using their sites to create more refined permission settings, send us an e-mail at help@wikispaces.com and we’ll point you to some resources.

    Best,
    Sarah

    I love this feature! I run a classroom wikispace and I want the parents to be able to see some pages but have it so my kids have to register to see more! GREAT THINKING! I have wanted this for a long time.

    Finally! This is a great feature that should of been added a long time ago.
    The only improvment to this would be if you could use some of the permissions on the Plus plan. e.g. the “Hidden”-seeing you can make the whole wiki Private it would be good if you could make just one page private on the Plus plan…
