Hierarchical Page Structure

  • I would like to have my pages form a hierarchy. I have one section with about 8 tutorials. Each tutorial is a series of several pages. I would like those pages to for a hierarchy (actual directory structure physically). For example:
    • JPA Tutorials
      • Tutorial 1: Getting Started
        • Setup
        • First Tests
      • Tutorial 2: Complex Relationships
        • Setup
        • First Tests
> As it is, I end up with really long page names to make sure one page's name doesn't step on the other. In the above example I end up with:
    • JPATutorials
    • JPATutorial1GettingStarted
    • JPATutorial1Setup
    • JPATutorial1FirstTests
    • JPATutorial2ComplexRelationships
    • JPATutorial2Setup
    • JPATutorial2FirstTests
> Thank You! - BrettSchuchert BrettSchuchert Sep 26, 2007
  • This feature would be amazing. I use a wiki to keep my coursework from school organized, and to be able to create "sub-pages" would open up the possibility to keep things even more organized. - BBAksquires BBAksquires Apr 1, 2008
  • I'd also like to save my pages into folders, because I'm a teacher, too. So, I could define the hierarchy of my site pages. Something like this: http://myspace.wikispaces.com/category1/schoolyear/course/page1. Is it possible? Soon?? - MariaJesusR MariaJesusR May 10, 2008

Code with automatic linebreak

i often end up searching for alternatives to the [[code]] tags, because it lacks linebreaks, leading to a "stretching" of the page. Scrolling sideways is just too unusual and uncomfortable.

Edit Page Widget

  • It would be nice to quickly insert the "Edit This Page" link anywhere on the page and the enter the edit mode at that "anchored" "edit This Page" location. This is especially helpful if your page is very long (like this one) and you need to edit just a section without having to scroll through the entire page to find the location you want to edit. 1204835599

Discussion

  • It would be nice if you could eliminate the discussion tab on some pages.

Links

  • An 'auto-link' option. By this I mean, when on, proceeding (or even better during) a page edit, the text is scanned for phrases that match existing page names under the current space and auto-magically turned into links. - stephencarmody stephencarmody Mar 24, 2006
  • I use the non-visual editor, so there all you have to do is put double square-brackets around the word to link it. But I do agree that it'd be nice to have some kind of auto-link option - not important, but nifty. Maybe some kind of sub-option so that it only links the first occurance of any individual page name (so you don't have fifty billion links to your "flowers" page). - ElementalKnight ElementalKnight Apr 16, 2006
  • Ability to use WikiWords as automatic links as a configuration option - this would make autolinking easy and allow for 'collisions' in Ward's sense - keithpeter keithpeter
  • When "Create a Link" dialog appears add a new option for Page Name "New Page..." - allow selection of template at this point, then the page is created - easier for administrators to set up specific formats for new pages - mikewebsxs mikewebsxs
  • WikiWords (or CamelCase) as an option for links. - jtuttle jtuttle
  • something that comes up each time you save a page saying something like " you have 'x number' of words on this page that are identical to the titles of other pages on this site. Please select which of the following words you would like to convert into links." Then a list of the words would appear, and there would be two additional buttons for 'none' and 'all'. (I don't know who wrote that, but it's a good idea. - Jbw1291 Jbw1291 Jul 1, 2005)
  • I'd love a link-checker. My space links to many external webpages, and it'd be great to be able to test whether or not they are dead. (Or perhaps you could just point us to a good outside service.) - jamescthedestroyer jamescthedestroyer Dec 21, 2007

Calendar feature

  • It would be great for those of us teaching as a team to be able to maintain a group calendar so we know what each of us is doing within the curriculum at any given time, e.g., field trips, guest speakers, practice examinations, large projects, etc., etc.
  • SOLUTION - all organizers get a google account, create a shared calendar, and embed it; benefit is that all private email between organizers is archived by google - including chats. Worked well for my site: https://msmshum9.wikispaces.com/Project+Calendar (go back to May 2007). - Raabster Raabster Aug 2, 2007
  • I second the need for a calendar feature. I host a wiki which is currently using the google calendar widget. However, most of the users aren't too tech savvy, and many members have expressed frustration about editing the calendar. They are reluctant to join Google, and even more reluctant to learn to navigate google's features on the heals of learning wikispaces. It would be easier for everyone if we could edit our calender the same way we edit the rest of the wiki -- on the site itself. - genna genna Aug 5, 2008
  • Yes, having a calendar that a member can edit, or having permission levels option, would be nice. I believe this is a feature already on the PBwiki site. Having to use Google or whatever widget is a pain, needing to always leave the wikispace to make changes. Also, the graphic layout is not the same as on Google, not as wide of cells.- bobbykey bobbykey Sep 6, 2008bobbykey

Image file reduction

  • It would be handy if the list files showed the sizes of uploaded files to help target images etc that need reduced to shorted the download times of the page. regards - hambudge hambudge Sep 6, 2006

Free Space Calculation

  • Is there a way to determine how much space you have used and how much you left? - shotthings shotthings Oct 6, 2006
  • It would be good so we can track which files are taking up lots of space while the little ones don't take. - fyrevortex fyrevortex

Random page function

  • It would be nice if I could add a link that would go to a random page on my wiki in the naviagation section. - bmeaker bmeaker Oct 14, 2006

Spreadsheet integration

  • Can we have excel sheet integration and also can we display word,excel,ppt on this page where can can write?
  • I've love to see a "gadget" to embed Google Docs (doc, spreadsheet, presentation) - chinarut chinarut Jun 23, 2008
    • workaround: take a screen snapshot of your spreadsheet and embed the image (example)

Comment Text

  • I'd love to have some sort of way to insert hidden 'comments' as you can in MediaWiki, HTML, ect that will show up when you edit a page, but not on the regular display of the page. - InShaneee InShaneee Mar 24, 2007 Echo. - Mgaut051 Mgaut051 Jun 26, 2007
  • [[comments]] ... [[comments]] : Allow someone to hide the typed text just putting it as a comment. This way we dont need to delete some incomplete text we are writing but still we dont want to show. Thanks! - beco beco Aug 15, 2006

Page Ratings

  • It'd be great to have a 5-star rating system on pages that users can click to modify. - Mgaut051 Mgaut051 May 31, 2007
  • Seconded. In addition to user rankings (and some way to access/sort by ranking), I'd suggest including "most viewed" pages. I'd like to do a wiki for student book reviews and allow the students to rank the books like movie reviews get from 1 to 5 stars. - Demetri Demetri Nov 26, 2007
  • This option would be useful for work with my students. I would like students to be able rate posts in our discussion. Top-rated posts should float to the top of the list.
  • I completely agree. This is exactly what I need. I found an external place js-kit.com that seems to provide a service that we can add on to the wiki but i have not been able to implement it yet.- dapul dapul

Image Sizeing

  • Rather than trying to drag an image to a specific height or width, it would be really cool to have the popup Image Properties box include an entry field in which a size in pixels, centemeters, or inches could be entered. Well, at least pixels. - jmac jmac Jun 27, 2007
  • Or a flash editor that pops in after you double click the picture. - fyrevortex fyrevortex

IRC Links

  • Linking to some other services than http, like ftp, irc, etc. At the moment I'd like to add an IRC link with the format irc:your.irc.net:6667/#mychannel
  • I agree. It'd be a cool feature... - Gaming4JC Gaming4JC May 8, 2008

Features for Documenting Application Software

  • - Solinges Solinges Mar 11, 2008
  • Interface in other languages (Spanish in particular)
  • There should be an option to make the wiki available to view for registered users, and pages only available to specific users. I use my wiki for documenting an application software and I dont want everybody in the world to view it, only my customers. Even more, I want to put some documentation specific for certain customers wich evidently should be only available to them (i.e. registered users)
  • Certain blocks of text should be available for specific users

User info boxes

Such as on Wikipedia. For example here on my Wikipedia user page. It's just an idea. - Crash_Underride Crash_Underride

My request is about title and Home:

For example:This wikispace,http://eastchestermhs.wikispaces.com/ , please list the words EMHS to the last of the title.not the beginning of the title.I also hope the title of Home is not Home,i can add words all by myself.That will help clawler to clawl your site.Thank you!

Page List:

Put the "jump to" buttons on the top of the page as well as the bottom.

List / Directory Navigation:

  • For wikispaces with hundreds of Pages/Files, it can be quite slow using First/Prev/Next/Next to move through screen after screen of listing until the required entries are reached. The Jump to A-Z feature is of limited value when most Pages/Files start with one of just a few letters. Could a field be provided to enable Jump to Item Number #####? This could also be used for the Directory of 20,000 wikispaces (why doesn't it have 'Jump to A-Z'?). - colincairns colincairns
  • I'd also like to save my pages into folders. So, I could define the hierarchy of my site pages. Something like this: http://myspace.wikispaces.com/category1/page1. Is it possible?

Not Accepting:

Maybe some wikis are private or are for school-And random people just pop in and want to join. Wouldn't a "Not accepting members" be better? - fyrevortex fyrevortex (If this idea is wrong please say so. This just came up from the top of my head.)

Upper Navigation:

Ever felt that your left navigation was out of space? (Not necessarily). Well, there could be a upper navigation, on top of page. And then you could customize a drop down menus. Many wikis need this. Organization in Wikispaces. Better than Google Groups. (Well, Wikispaces is already better than Google Groups, but I bet, by 2009 many needed features would be out) - fyrevortex fyrevortex

Unused Files:

Have a tab, similar to the one on the page list, that lists the files that are not linked anywhere on the site. This could reduce the amount of unnecessary content stored on your servers.

Members Only Lock

You know the "locked" only for organizers (administrators)? Now it should also come with members only lock. Only members inside the wiki can edit. Maybe theres some pages that need member edits, but not with guests messing it up, while guests can contribute to another page. What about it? Now there would be locked for organizers, and lock for members too. Wikispaces comes one step further. - fyrevortex fyrevortex & - icevortex icevortex

Misc

  • Naming images on upload instead of just having the name that comes from the filesystem - ansell ansell Oct 22, 2005
  • Wikitext in edit comments would be cool. - Jbw1291 Jbw1291 Jul 8, 2005 I think this should be moved one step higher in criticality since it can be impossible to know what somebody has changed on a page - not all the changes are of obvious nature - wikiwill wikiwill Jan 15, 2006
  • Wikipedia has a feature where you doubleclick a page and you are taken to the editor for that page. This is a nice feature for lazy edirots like me, and I think it would be a very easy one to add. - Jbw1291 Jbw1291 Jul 1, 2005
  • Ability to move a selected block of text to a new page (select it, click a button, give it a name, and voila - new page - VoodooPad for Mac has this) - jesse jesse
  • recent logins box - jbyers jbyers Mar 17, 2005 it would be nice if this were also listed by space -- a login indicated if the user authenticated and visited the space. Recent visitor I guess. (- ghouse ghouse
  • A wiki tag for addresses, that turns the address into a link to a map of that location, e.g. at google, yahoo, or mapquest. - mcjamison mcjamison Mar 20, 2005
  • Popular Pages - Option to display the popular pages from the past 30 days, or from all time. This way if a page was popular months ago, the use can have the option to only see recent popular pages. - ghouse ghouse Jun 7, 2005
  • Space control of meta tags (per - queenloana queenloana)
  • Copy and Paste support for Microsoft Word documents. Trying to Wiki my docs and there are some quirks when pasting (the line-feeds need to be erased are re-entered in the wiki editor, otherwise the page is truncated). - donpedro donpedro I believe this issue has been fixed with the newest release - chorizo chorizo Dec 19, 2005
  • Cleaning the code when copying text from Microsoft Word. Many times there is a lot of code that is absolutely innecesary - JulenIturbe-Ormaetxe JulenIturbe-Ormaetxe Oct 9, 2008
  • Preview option for messages - as one can use wikitext in them, in would be nice to be able check the formatting before posting. - phaedrus phaedrus Aug 5, 2005 Seconded - NeilSunderland NeilSunderland Feb 12, 2006
  • Float the space.menu up and down so that it is always on the screen. - ansell ansell Aug 29, 2005
  • Random Space Feature to highlight a space - msbluebells msbluebells Sep 11, 2005 (as opposed to the Space of the Month page that is already available - ansell ansell Sep 11, 2005 I was thinking of having both. - msbluebells msbluebells Sep 12, 2005i
  • A list of recent changes to your star/watched pages - ansell ansell Sep 20, 2005
  • Marker for minor edits - ansell ansell Sep 21, 2005 Second this suggestion. I use RSS feeds to display changes to the wiki on another site. It would be nice if I could filter out minor changes. - nbr nbr Jan 22, 2006 I third this suggestion. At the very least, perhaps an option to filter out null comments - these are basically minor edits in my wiki. - chinarut chinarut Jun 23, 2008
  • Have some control over exporting feeds have an option to drop changes less than 20 charters - klasbricks klasbricks Jun 3, 2006
  • Easy way to link to edit pages ( e.g. [[@pagename|edit]] is much nicer than a link to http://spacename.wikispaces.org/page/edit/pagename|edit ) - joeljunk joeljunk Sep 26, 2005
  • Can accepted editing users be added by a e-mail domain, rather than specific e-mail ( *@mail.com) ?
  • Could we have 'Location' and/or 'Language' properties for spaces, and the ability to filter by them, please? - NeilSunderland NeilSunderland Oct 23, 2005
  • Can the [[toc]] tag pick up the title field from RSS fields? - NeilSunderland NeilSunderland Oct 27, 2005
  • Guests can create new pages - beco beco Oct 29, 2005]
  • password protect backup ZIP file with login password (optional) - joeljunk joeljunk Jan 5, 2006
  • It would be lovely to be able to draw a simple diagram in a wiki (just freehand black and white would be enough, but something like http://www.imaginationcubed.com/LaunchPage would be fantastic) - Lucy Lucy Feb 11, 2006
  • Ability to add new pages to a space via email, like Backpack. When I send a long email to my students, I want to be able to cc: the course wiki and have each new message appear on its own new page. - nbr nbr Feb 25, 2006 (PS It occurs to me that I could sort of work around this by using the mail-to-Blogger feature of my Blogspot blog and adding the auto-import wiki text at the end of the message.)
  • Make the file list page faster and easier to navigate, much like the picture placement tool in the editor (thanks, droffarc) - jbyers jbyers May 12, 2006
  • Who is online: I would like to put in space.menu a list of member's names who is online at that time in wikispaces! ;) - beco beco Aug 20, 2006 Yes please! However, I don't want to know EVERY wikispace member online, just the members for my wiki...- RaabeDoyle RaabeDoyle Apr 30, 2007
  • I'd kind of like to see the ability to upload texts, like Elven, onto the wiki.- Kalriem Kalriem Aug 24, 2006
  • Multiple userids for a single email (Mark Epstein)
  • Page with a list of the spaces redirects - Mikebloke Mikebloke Dec 28, 2006
  • Email rate-limiting for space change notifications. If I didn't log in to survey the changes announced by the first two emails, I'm probably busy or sleeping and the next fifteen won't do any good. Reset the squelch when I log in. - Myself Myself Mar 18, 2007
  • In the absence of a 'Preview' option, the ability to edit your own messages after you've posted them - NeilSunderland NeilSunderland Feb 12, 2006
  • how about ability to tweak google ad keywords - my space on induction cooking has an awful lot of ads for industrial induction systems for melting metals, not exactly what the readers of the wiki would be looking for. If I could get some cooking related ads there, you'd probably see more responses to the ads - colinyoung colinyoung
  • Also, how about setting the country of origin, so the ads refer to something I can actually buy. It's ok if they ship stock though. - Mallington Mallington Oct 10, 2005
  • Ability to have a built-in mailing-list (for newspapers and stuff)
  • A badge that shows all of a member's public changes (similar to the space badge, but for all pages) proxied from - leighblackall leighblackall by - jbyers jbyers Nov 10, 2005
  • For my space, I'd like to set up a clear, standardized format for usernames—showing first and last names—that would be as easy as possible for users to remember and to type in. At the moment, the best I could do would be something like JohnSmith, which would allow users to log in all in lowercase, without punctuation, while making the users' real names pretty clear. It would be ideal if the username could be John Smith. If it's a hassle to allow usernames with spaces, could you convert spaces typed when logging in to underlines, so could have the username John_Smith but just type in john smith? - dtronvig dtronvig May 3, 2006
  • An "undo" button in the visual editor would be very helpful for those unexpected events, making cleanup easy. - ckendall ckendall May 31, 2006
  • Multiple "undo/redo" in visual AND text editor. It's very valuable feature and it's already in almost wiki on the market. - nickzam nickzam Mar 3, 2007
  • Also, have a place besides the sidebar where all pages are listed and easily accessesd.
  • it would be neat to have an address book so that i can select the names of who i want to message. there are over 50 members and not all of them need all the messages. i also forget the username they often have as they are using the a mix of christian name, surname and numbers. if i could simply scroll down the list of page members it would make life much simplier.- Michael-P Michael-P Sep 10, 2007
  • The ability for the author to edit his/her own history comment later if they forgot to include something.
  • Common wikitext footers for all pages in a space - jbyers jbyers Apr 17, 2005
  • It would be useful if we could set various permissions to access different pages at different levels so that pupils could upload personal work like agreed tracking grades to a private area for guidance teachers. - hambudge hambudge Oct 29, 2007
  • I created a wikispace for final versions of presentation content http://cogdogroo.wikispaces.com/, and explicitly stated that it was available for free use but there is no reason to join as I remain sole author. People continue to pester with requests to join the space mainly so the links appear in ther left side links, so perhaps a feature that would allow themt to "follow" or "bookmark" a space so they have easy access. - cogdog cogdog Oct 29, 2007
  • It would be nice to clear your history once in a while... I wrote this article and then thought that other people could steal it then publish it for money... I deleted it, but then had the space-Guess how they sold it? Going to history, copying it, selling it... -Fyrevortex
  • "Edit" action on pagelist - amoebios amoebios Dec 10, 2007
  • Better support for OffByOne. - amoebios amoebios Dec 17, 2007
  • Add please a pligg service .
  • Also - Line and paragraph break options. For ease of reading and formatting I always use a big spacing (eg Word's +0.6pt) for paragraph breaks and small spacing for line breaks - the HTML and options are ideal for this so can we have a way of forcing, eg use or which seems to be the convention. At the moment wikispaces provides a single line spacing that is readable for large amounts of text but not so good for visual organisation. I guess this then moves into whether you could have a basic wiki display settings control box to change line spacing and other font characteristics without delving into .css (I can just about cope with the css but I'd rather not spend time on code if I'm tinkering with the appearance) - chrisrust chrisrust Jan 22, 2007
  • Yeah, i've been playing around for ages assuming that i'm stupid and couldn't figure out how to insert tabs and spaces. It took a while for me to conclude that perhaps that feature wasn't available. It's driving me nuts. - HarryG HarryG Jun 2, 2007
  • Anchor format: Anchor use is important. It's fairly easy to use now. But for many people, it should be EASYER, else they won't use it. Can you make a function to insert Anchor like insert link, imagine to insert achor from different page. Then user slect page's name, anchor's name from drop menu instead of typeping the stuff
  • Helpful Buttons for Text Editor: i.e. having an editor that accepts both wikitext and has buttons to automatically add the wikitext markers around the text. e.g. if i want to embolden the word "shoe", click the bold button and have it automatically add "shoe." - emorymed emorymed Mar 11, 2006
  • pre tag, as opposed to just monospace (tt) formatting - jbyers jbyers May 3, 2005 (c/o presto)
  • Customizable Code Formats: In other words, the ability to customize the lexer to create a new format for a specific programming language, specifiable by [ [code format="SomeLANGUAGE"] ]. - bshipps64 bshipps64 Feb 28, 2006
  • When more than one space is entered after a word it disappears. Ability to put multiple spaces after words or a tab function would make it possilbe to better align words designed to stand out or mark sections on a page - DPater DPater Jan 28, 2006
  • The horizontal line should be aligned to the left and not to towards the center. It looks weird like that. (We should at least be able to align it to the left.) - pyxis pyxis Sep 3, 2006




Reposition the Actions menu

I think the action menu can be moved to setting, or some where else. The upper left of a page is the most eyes catching position. Please left this area for the Navigation bar - rcfee rcfee
  • Second the motion. The Navigation bar should be in the top left. - pyxis pyxis Sep 3, 2006
  • I agree - in a paid-for space you can control this by customising your Theme and that was the first change I made, moving it to bottom left. I would also prefer the "manage space" option to be hidden from non-editors, at the moment you can hide the whole of that section or none of it - chrisrust chrisrust Jan 22, 2007

Display Resolution

  • Please support 800x600, right now the width of the editing page is too big for my display, so I have to use scroll bars within scroll bars to get around and it is pretty frustrating. Wish I could afford a new laptop, but we're not all Gates. :-} - raould raould

favicon.ico

  • Have option to remove small icons on actions bar and editbars - klasbricks klasbricks Jun 24, 2006
  • Option to upload a own favicon.ico or could icon space be resize to 16x16 pixels favoicon, this could be a paying features.
  • Custom icon for tab (i think it is favicon.ico). Have this as a site dependent setting like the logo - ansell ansell Sep 12, 2005
  • Would like to have an animated favicon in my cazania wikispace like this : _Cazania_animated_favicon1.gif in http://cazania.wikispaces.com/ - irismeister irismeister Nov 27, 2006
  • Use the logo as favicon.ico - fyrevortex fyrevortex
  • Please allow us to use a custom favicon! :) - Gaming4JC Gaming4JC May 8, 2008

Look and feel

  • Make tabs stay still when choosen different tabs. - klasbricks klasbricks Jun 24, 2006
  • It would be nice if the "EDIT THIS PAGE" button have the contour colour equal the background colour (Manage spaces / look and feel / Background Color), not allways green as it is now. It does not fit well in my blue page. :) Thanks, - beco beco Jan 15, 2007
  • Other option is that the button "EDIT THIS PAGE" in "bubble theme" could be like the "original theme", i.e., silver... That match better with all colours - but green is hard! :)... Thanks. - beco beco Jan 17, 2007

Different Pages Different Layouts (no-fee edition)

  • Okay i would like to be able to have a different layout on different pages... AKA: one page has the 'bubble theme' another has the 'OneBox theme'. This would make it so that people could make "wikis" In "Wikis"(or just ad that feature :-) ) - ateamrocks ateamrocks
  • Control over header and footer for branding purposes - scanR scanR
  • I think they need a better selection or at least allow a bit more editing of the given layouts... please? - Gaming4JC Gaming4JC May 8, 2008

Threaded Discussion


  • The discussions work well but adding threads would make them better. Within a discussion the ability to respond to a post so that your response appears below the original post (indented) would keep the discussions organized and not just a long list of posts. - orangejer orangejer

Control-Z or Undo
The one thing that drives me crazy is that I can't undo with Control Z. In typing a normal document, I might use Control-Z 30-40 times and so I am always using it to no avail. It would be great if you would add that feature.

My wiki is used for some basic Mac OS help, and it would be useful to be able to type (or paste in) the symbol for the Max OS Command key (the one that looks like a splat). If you're on a Mac, the splat can be typed using the Wingdings font and typing the letter Z. Could you add that to the special characters panel, please? - hbelow hbelow Apr 9, 2008


Cancel image & file upload

I've been caught out once of twice uploading a large file which I realise after starting will take along time to upload (my upload timing is capped at 128kb). I've also been in a situation uploading a small file which seems to freeze. The only I've found to stop it from attemping to upload is by exiting (by saving) a page being edited. There is currently no way of cancelling a partially completed upload. It would be good to have this.

Graphic Boxes for INCLUDE PAGE: reduce size?

Not really a feature; not really a bug. An annoyance, I suppose.
I have been stop-gapping some formatting by use page includes, but the “include page” graphic that appears is surprisingly large and (apparently) not size-adjustable. Is there any way to modify this? It would be great if I could get it to appear almost character-size instead. - hcraft hcraft May 1, 2008


Space-Wide Search and Replace

It would be fantastic to be able to do a global search-and-replace across all of the pages in my space.
- gmennie gmennie May 2, 2008


Embeddable Database

I would like to see a database widget that could be embedded into a page. This would allow users of a site to leave contact information, such as their Twitter or Skype accounts. I run the GoAPES wikispaces at http://goapes.wikispaces.com and have environmental science teachers from around the world who visit the site. I thought it would be a great idea to create an embedded login and contact form, so that if teachers wanted to collaborate with each other environmental science teacher, they could look up other teachers contact information, or leave their own. It would also be great if the database widget could be secured from the general public, i.e. only approved site members could login to the database, and the site administrator would have the ability to delete records and permissions. - tcooper66 tcooper66

Bulk Page Creating

I have a situation where I want to run a summer camp off of a wikispaces site. However, to make pages for each of the campers, I have to go one by one and make page after page. It would be great if there was a feature that allowed you to make pages in bulk. You could specify a page name, and an unique identifier to assign (such as 1,2,3,4 or a,b,c,d) and you could specify how many pages. The end result would end up with as many pages as you need, all named individually. You would end up with a list of pages such as
name_1
name_2
name_3
name_4
etc.
Thanks!

Full History

I am a researcher experimenting with wikis as a means to model one's life. For this model to be complete, I need access to the full history of my wiki. Right now I do not have such access. I can see this as a 2 phased approach - chinarut chinarut Jun 23, 2008
  1. see an option in my preferences to "enable full history" (or just enable full history globally)
  2. Wikispaces API - (i've requested edit rights to add a history API as well)

Export Metadata

The current backup does not include metadata such as tags and comments. I'd like to create software to process backup files which includes the pages, files, tags, and comments until a full API is released. - chinarut chinarut Jun 23, 2008

Search Comment Text

I put a substantial investment in logging comments. my comments are quite rich in meta-data. Right now I cannot search my comments. Please search this text too. - chinarut chinarut Jun 23, 2008

Text Color

It would be much easier to use the "text color" edit if it offered specific, discreet colors to choose from. Under the current system it is difficult to reproduce a given color elsewhere in the page (obviously, I'm not CSS sophisticated). Also using the color text process can impact other aspects of the text, size, spacing....(- ELRaish ELRaish Jun 29, 2008)

Quiz Button / Widget


  • Integration of a quiz-builder into Wikispaces would truly graduate Wikispaces from Web 2.0 to eLearning 2.0, not to mention the claim, "Wikispaces - The First Quiz-Enabled Hosted Wiki for Educators". As an instructional designer and educator, such a wiki would be a dream come true for me. You could implement this functionality by first incorporating a 'Quiz' button or widget in the Editor bar. On clicking this [Q] feature, a pop-up window could be opened, offering the following 2 simple formats: (a) MCQ - single-select (b) MCQ - multiple-select. On selecting a format, the following text fields could be displayed: (a) Question statement (b) 2-5 answer options with indicators for correct answers. On completing these fields and pressing OK, the question with stem and options could be inserted on the page (like a table) with 'Submit' button and a border. When learners takes this quiz, they just click radio-buttons/check-boxes and press Submit. Feedback could simply be visual; just 'check-marks' against all correct answers. Learners can compare their responses with the checked options and remediate. An attempt on integrating a quizzes into wikis has recently been made at __http://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Help:Quiz-Simple__. I believe Wikispaces can do much better.- prakashbebington prakashbebington Jul 3, 2008

Configurable Signature Link

I'd like to be able to configure the link that my signature contains. I have a user page on my space and would like to make my signature link to the user page rather than my official www non-wiki user page. Being able to configure this per-space would be awesome. - thomasjack thomasjack Jul 21, 2008

Spam Filter on Email

I'm a member of a lot of fun spaces, but some of the members send a whole lot of spam emails, chainmail, and things like that. I don't want to leave the spaces or kick off the members, so a feature I'd like in the email is a spam filter. You can enter the users you don't want to recieve emails in your inbox from, and have a spam folder you can empty with one click.

Title customization

Currently title is wikispacename >> title. But there should be option to customize it, like wikipedia says title - wikipedia - the free encyclopedia.
title is important because it is what displayed in google search engine results.. So little descriptive title is must to make users click the link, provided title is not misleading to attract more people. Give it high priority as this will make more people click link in google search results. regards - tichwhack tichwhack Sep 5, 2008

:I want to add description like "the free encyclopedia" common to all pages of my own wiki in wikispaces. Currently title is least descriptive and users are unable to make sense of title when shown in search results. myWikiName >> pageTitle >> myWikiDescription would help improve traffic to my wiki from search engines. - tichwhack tichwhack Sep 25, 2008


Selection of multiple (pages, users, discussions)

Space organizers should be able to select multiples, either pages, users, discussions, or anything else that may have multiple parts, by way of checkboxes. There should be a choice to select all of the items or to go through the list to select several of the items and then the organizer would be able to perform the same action of all of the pieces which he or she has selected at once. Trying to delete one hundred users become very tedious. Trying to delete 5,000 different discussion posts is even worse. Having a feature in which we could select all or some or deselect those items would save a lot of time instead of performing an action on just one item and then having to wait for the page to refresh each time.- D_Morton D_Morton Sep 11, 2008

Interface Language Options

I teach Spanish, and while my students write in Spanish, I'd love to see ALL the miscelaneous text provided by Wikispaces also in Spanish so my students have to interact with the language fully. Can I choose a language for each of my class spaces, please? - duronioj duronioj Sep 14, 2008

Add-to-the-page box

Wikispaces seems to be missing the one feature that I use the most with students. That is the ability to easily add an "add to this page" box. I use the aniweb version of Swiki (Squeak Wiki--see Swiki Documentation) One of it's nicest features is the "add to the page box" that is created by just starting any line with a + sign. The box can have several "flavors":
+
Just an Add to the Page box that posts the new content above it so the box moves down the page.
+^
Add to the page box that posts the new content below it so the box always stays in the same place
+@
Add to the page box that puts the user, date, and time at the top of each entry
+_
Add to the page box that puts a horizontal line between each entry
These are counted as page edits so the user is always tracked. However, there are no risks of editing collisions. I've used this for various people to take notes in a meeting, for students to comment on each other's work, for teachers to comment on student's work, etc. It's very useful and makes it much faster to comment on numerous pages rather than having to edit each one.- dvfincher dvfincher Sep 30, 2008

Private and Public Pages within Protected Spaces

Within a protected space, it would be very useful to be able to change the permission of some pages to private status, so that only members could view and edit certain pages. I understand that it would be possible to establish a second wikispace and make it private, but that can be very awkward for a variety of reasons. One motivation for this request stems from a need to respect journal policies. For example, many peer-reviewed, professional journals (such as the AAAS Science Magazine) will usually not permit posting of a manuscript submitted for publication on a publicly readable website. On the other hand, the sharing of a prepublication manuscript among members of a limited group (such as collaborators, colleagues, or a limited group of scientists who are members of a wikispace) may be allowable, just as presentation of unpublished data at a conference for other scientists. Different journals have different policies on embargoes of manuscripts submitted for publication. For example, Nature is far less restrictive than Science, but this is not the place to elaborate on such differences.

Already, certain page options are distinguished by status. For example, only organizers can edit locked pages; members cannot. Similarly, there is already an option to restrict discussion postings to members (although they are publicly readable.) This feature would be a slight enhancement in that only members could read and edit private pages and their associated discussions, whereas nonmembers could not. - mbeinhorn mbeinhorn May 20, 2008

That is a very good idea... Member-Only pages would elevate Wikispaces' popularity to... *Looks up towards the sky* From awesomeness to extreme awesomeness... - rekhyt rekhyt

I would absolutely love this feature, for the same reasons that mbeinhorn mentioned. I'd like to share general features of my research freely, but maintain a private area for in-progress work and embargoed manuscripts. - thomascarroll thomascarroll

Add my vote to this feature, for all the above reasons (mutatis mutandis for our circumstances). - Tanuki Tanuki Sep 11, 2008

It´s a must !!! I need a way to edit a page, leave it unfinished and not visible in the wiki, at least by common users. - solinges solinges


Selecting Specific Dates in Manage Space

I work within the Manage Space pages to evaluate course discussions. To use Member Statistics, I must select a month for those statistics or the whole year. Sometimes I want to look at usage stats for member use that occurs over a three week period at the end of one month and at the beginning of another month. To see the members' work, I now must look at the whole year. Checking the whole year often gives me much more usage information than I want to see. It would be very nice, if when we are working within Manage Space and in the Statistics section, that we could select a specific From date and a specific To date for which to examine those statistics. - D_Morton D_Morton Oct 10, 2008

Long captions please!!!

Hi! It would be really great to be able of writing long captions for each image breaking the text into many lines, and possibly managing font size, style etc. another nice feature i use on Wikipedia is "image gallery", say <center><gallery>image: etc... </gallery></center>, which makes orderer rows of 4 images without overlapping the text. it looks like this: http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pietro_Stangherlin.

please! thanks!- Tetraktys Tetraktys Oct 15, 2008

Searching all spaces of which one is a member

--The Navigation bar listing spaces to which one belongs is a great help. Wouldn't it be great to be able to search over that same domain? This could already be done with Google Advanced search, I believe, but not easily. - tloughran tloughran


Is there a way to chat through the wiki? [user:adl] - guest (163.129.251.250) guest (163.129.251.250) Nov 5, 2008

Force HTTPS option

could we have a setting somewhere under 'manage space' to force all connections to that wikispace be over made over HTTPS. - james-royal-lawson james-royal-lawson Nov 14, 2008

Cut Down on Spam Emails
Allow only the organize(s) to send email to the entire space, Make it an option control by the organizers to allow members to send email messages to all members (- styleapple styleapple Nov 16, 2008)

How To Delete Un-wanted Mail
Go into your mail, then click the little white box beside who sent you the mail and then click the delete button at the top.
That is how you delete un-wanted mail.!!!

File Sharing

I use wikispaces for my classroom. It would be helpful to have file sharing capability so I can share my activities with other teachers. - blamore blamore Nov 19, 2008
