Once pages are created in TikiWiki, you can begin to edit them. Because the TikiWIki site is accessible for anyone to edit, occasionally you may have a person deface a page.  This article will explain how to edit, delete, and restore pages in TikiWIki.

Deleting and Restoring pages

The nice thing about TikiWiki is that when a page is created that is either not relevant or that is defaced by a disgruntled editor, the page can be deleted or restored. Pages that are deleted are actually removed from the site while being saved in the back end as different versions. This allows deleted pages that were removed by mistake to be restored again. The following section will explain how to delete or remove and restore in TikiWiki.
