Preview: Totally new PBwiki interface, features

10 Dec

This is the first preview of a major release we’re working on for early January 2008.

We’re working on a completely new interface with brand-new features:

  • New editor. We’ve improved the editor to be more responsive and have fixed a number of bugs. (My personal favorite: Bullet-pointing is now much, much easier.)
  • Page-level access. If you’ve ever wanted to allow certain people access to specific pages on your wiki, now you’ll be able to.
  • Page folders & folder access controls. This new feature will allow you to put pages in folders to better organize your wiki. A godsend for large wikis!
  • Improved logins. A few months ago, we noted how logins on PBwiki are more confusing than they need to be. In the new release, we’ll be improving logins and making it easier to track who’s doing what — and to make sharing easier.

Beginning in early 2008, we’ll be sending you information about how to migrate over to the new interface. (If you don’t want to change, you can keep your current interface.)

Here’s a preview screenshot.
