We just added a new widget to your wiki toolbox. We call it the List of Wikis widget, because that’s what it does: it puts a list of wikis on the page. No more manually entering links to wikis, no more worrying about who sees what.
What it does
Obviously, it lists wikis. You get two choices: All the wikis the viewer is a member of, or all the wikis in the viewer’s “My Wikis” list. But the fun part is that it’s a dynamic little widget. So when I’m logged in, I’ll see the wikis I care about seeing. When you’re logged in, you’ll see yours. And, when either of us joins new wikis, or leaves old wikis, or updates our list of favorite wikis, the widget will automatically know.
- Navigate to the page (or navigation bar) where you want a list of wikis.
- Click the Widget icon in the editor toolbar.
- On the Wikispaces Widgets menu, select List of Wikis.
- Decide which list you want to display and set the maximum number of wikis to list.
- Hit the Embed Wiki List button.
- Save your page.
A special feature for Private Label users
If you are working on a Wikispaces Private Label site, you have one additional option for your list of wikis: All wikis the viewer can see.
This can be a fantastic solution to tricky site navigation issues. All you need to do is embed the widget on the home page or nav bar of your www wiki, and every user will get an instant, personalized list of all the wikis that are public, protected, or list them as a member. The whole visible site at their fingertips, and you didn’t have to spend any time entering manual links or worrying about wiki permission settings.
We’re pretty psyched about this new feature, and hope you will be, too. Let us know what you think below or with an email to email@example.com.
