Visitors cannot edit preview TikiWikiThis snapshot shows the edit feature missing from the default TikiWiki installation.

Registered users can only edit TikiWiki sites by default. Some wiki software makes it default for "non registered" or "Anonymous" users to edit the site. TikiWiki is not set up this way. To allow Anonymous users access to edit your TikiWiki site without logging in, you can set the permissions for the Anonymous user to "Can edit pages".

This tutorial will explain the basics of the user permissions. The following is a step by step instruction for allowing the Anonymous user to edit your TikiWiki pages.


Setting edit permissions for the Anonymous user

  1. Log into TikiWiki.
  2. Select permissions in the admin TikiWikiHover over the Admin link in the sidebar

    Select Permissions.

  3. Click wiki in the permissions TikiWikiOn the "assign global permissions" page, click the arrow next to wiki in the permissions list.
  4. Select the anonymous check box TikiWIkiThe list of Anonymous and registered user permissions setting will show.

    Click the check box for the Anonymous user on the row that says "Can edit pages (tiki_p_edit)".

    Click Assign.
