Wikis work best as a collaborative site where many people have access to read and contribute. Your job is to find people to contribute to the wiki — our job is to make it super simple for you to invite them.
Check out the many ways PBwiki 2.0 has made it easy to add folks to you wiki – including our new completely public wiki (coming soon!).
Individual invitations – Start small – add just one or two users. You can do this from the front page of your wiki, just enter their email address where is says “share this wiki”.
Add multiple users- If you have an excel or .csv file with users email addresses, you can bulk upload them using the “add multiple users” feature in the users section of the setting panel. This works wonders — just copy all the email addresses and paste them into the space provided.
Classroom Accounts- Your students don’t have email and you want to know exactly who is editing the wiki. Use Classroom Accounts to automatically create login accounts for your students and determine their permission level.
Request Access- You can send the link to your wiki and have your users click request access. Then approve them in the setting panel. This is good if you want specific folks to have access to your wiki, but don’t want to add them individually.
Coming Soon — Public editing – We are now testing a public editing feature for public wikis. This feature will allow anyone who has your wiki address to immediately gain access to your wiki — they only have to click “edit” and create a PBwiki account.
NOTE:This is not available for private wikis
Public editing is good for large collaborative wikis where you want everyone to have access and you don’t want the added step of approving everyone. Added benefit — you can create permission levels for these users and even remove them from the wiki.
