    Hi Guyz ,
     I am recently working on the Sitefinity's  wiki module for a requirements i.e the user could create pages , place links on that page and add description the wiki had all these characteristics but i am the real purpose that i am using it for is that when the pages get nested deep and one wants to find a specific link it would be easy by the search provided by the wiki. I would really appreciate if any one could tell me that is my approach correct should wiki be really used for this purpose whats the real purpose of wiki.

    Again regarding my usage i saw that when ever we create a new wiki it is listed seperatly e.g
    1. Test_Wiki1 page
    2. Page 2 in  Test_Wiki1 page
    3. ..................
    4. ..................
    shouldent it be like this a ("Nested") structure
    1. Test_Wiki1 page
                         1.1. Page 2
    2. ............
            2.1. ..................

    and again one more thing that i saw that there were enteries being made into the database, but then again there was an XML file also being created. Whats the purpose of that file?.
    Because of it wiki created by one user is not visible to other as the data base is shared and the solution is in source control in this scenerio we face the problem that wiki doesent get displayed due to that XML file.

    And in admin view of the wiki page the wiki page on a machine with (solution and database residing togather)
    the wiki control shows the wikis in page that i created wiki.aspx but in admin view those wikis are not displayed.

    Thank you any sort of reply would be really appreciated.

    Regards

    Hi Adeel Arif,

    1. You can use Wiki's built-in search or create wikis SiteMap - bind RadTreeView to all wikis. This will allow you to navigate quickly to a wiki item.

    2. The module - Wiki uses XML data provider - Telerik.Wiki.Data.XmlProvider which saves its data to ~/App_Data/Wikis.xml

    Hi Fran O'Prey,

    The wiki has a metakey called "Name", so you could filter by this metakey - Name ASC. In the public control - WikiView >> Advanced Tab >> Filters you will find SortExpression property that you could use when you work with the UI. Programmatically you could pass the Sort Expression parameter to GetContent method of ContentManager class.

    Best wishes,

    Hello Fran O'Prey,

    You could show the author and category from the control designer of WikiView control when you open it for editing ( Wiki item settings section.) There is a bug in 3. 7 SP3 that prevents you to hide the author( there are not problems with the category setting), so you could follow the steps below to hide the author from the ControlDesigner of the control. The issue will be fixed for Sitefinity SP4.

    Map  WikiViewSingleItem.ascx external template (How to map a template). Wrap the Literal control with ID = "Author" as shown below

    /asp:Panel>
                <asp:PlaceHolder ID="plhAuthor" runat="server">
                <p class="sf_wikiAuthor">
                    <asp:Literal runat="server" Text="<%$Resources:PostedByColon %>"></asp:Literal>
                    <%--<asp:HyperLink ID="postedBy" runat="server">--%>
                        <asp:Literal ID="Author" runat="server"></asp:Literal>
                    <%--</asp:HyperLink>--%>
                </p>
            </asp:PlaceHolder>

    Hi,

    Thanks for the quick response. Will our current version of Sitefinity be updated automatically to SP4? Also, when is SP4 due to be released?

    Kind regards,

    Fran

    Hello Fran O'Prey,

    You should upgrade your project ( upgrade instructions) once the SP4 is available. The SP4 will be released in the beginning of August after Q2 release of the RadControl for ASP.NET AJAX.
