    WikiToWeb Help

    Overview

    WikiToWeb allows you to create a read-only web page from the content of a normal, editable wiki. If you're unfamiliar with the concept of a wiki, see this site.

    Terminology

    • Wiki Pages - These are the pages in the normal (editable) wiki that we want to copy into a static, read-only web site.
    • Web Pages - This is the destination for the data that we're copying. Like Wiki Pages, this is also an installation of mediawiki, but the permissions have been stripped down so that pages can only be edited through the WikiToWeb interface.

    Wiki Page features

    • Show Page - This will bring you to the "main page" of the content section of the editable wiki. For example, if WikiToWeb has been configured to copy all pages with a prefix of "Web:", then Show Pages will bring you to the wiki page entitled "Web:".
    • Login - This brings you to the login form for the wiki pages. Some wikis are setup so that you must be logged in to edit pages. If this is the case with your wiki, you should login before attempting to make any changes to the wiki pages.
    • Add New Page - This link will first ask you for a new page's title, and then bring you to a form where you can create this new page in the wiki. Remember to login first if your wiki requires this.

    Web Page features

    • Show Page - Similar to "Show Page" in the Wiki Pages section, this link will take you to the main page of the Web Pages that you're copying content into. For example, if you're copying content into a section called "Pages:", then Show Page will bring you to the page titled "Pages:" in the Web Pages.
    • Edit Side Bar - This link brings you to a form where you can edit the appearance of the side bar of the Web Pages. The Side Bar is a list of links that appears on the left of every page in the Web Pages.

    List All Pages

    This link will show you a table comparing all relevant articles in the Wiki Pages and the Web Pages. Based on the state of your Wiki Pages and your Web Pages, List All Pages will report a different status for each individual article.

    • new: This means that the article exists as a Wiki Page, but it hasn't yet been created as a Web Page. List All Pages presents you with an option to commit this page to the web in this case.
    • diff: This means that the article exists in both the Wiki Pages and the Web Pages, but that their contents do not match. Again, List All Pages will present you with an option to commit your changes to the Web Page.
    • same: This means that the article exists in both the Wiki Pages and the Web Pages, and that their contents are identical. Unless you make further edits to the Wiki Page, no further action is necessary for this article.
    List All Pages also presents you with a couple more options.
    • Commit to Web - Update the Web Page for a given article so that its contents match the corresponding article in the Wiki Pages.
    • Difference - Show the difference between the Wiki Page version and the Web Page version for a given article.
    • Edit Page - This link allows you to make changes to the Wiki Page version of an article.
    • Show Wiki Page - This will show you the current Wiki Page version of a given article.
    • Show Web Page - This will show you the current Web Page version of a given article.
