Before we get started with TikiWiki, its a good idea to have a clear view of what it takes to make a basic TikiWiki site. A typical wiki site is like Wikipedia. Many different people contribute to the Wikipedia websites content. TikiWiki has the same functionality. These courses are designed to walk you through the basic steps in creating a TikiWiki site. The order of the course goes as follows.

Installing TikiWiki

Installing TikiWIki wiki Softaculous To get started with TikiWiki, the program will need to be installed on your server. You can download the files from the TikiWiki site or you can install through Softaculous. We recommend installing TikiWiki through Softaculous because there is no file upload and database set up required. Softaculous installs all of the files and database entries for you.

Logging into TikiWiki

How to log into TikiWikiAfter you install TikiWiki, you will need to log in to the administrator dashboard. As a part of the TikiWiki site creation, we will explain how to log into TikiWiki and how to manage the users in TikiWiki.

Creating pages and structures TikiWiki

TextOnce you are logged in and you know how to manage your admin user, you can begin creating pages. The next steps in this tutorial series is creating and editing pages and creating structures or a table of contents in TikiWiki. Pages can be categorized into structures which allow topics to be maintained under one category. Because site navigation is so important in wiki sites, creating and editing pages and creating structures are the next required reading.

Adding and Formatting content

TextFormatting content follows page creation. Pages can be set up aesthetically pleasing using the TikiWIki WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) editor. The required reading in this section is on How to format TikiWiki page content.

Changing the appearance

Finally, you can customize your TikiWiki site to look like your own personal site. The standard theme can be changed by downloading a free theme. You can also put your own custom logo in the header of your Tiki site. The last of the required reading sections are How to change and upload a theme for TikiWiki and How to change the TikiWiki logo.
