How does this page work. I would like to add it to my wiki.
If someone would be so kind as to tell me how I can do this I would be much obliged.

Are you running Wikka? Just create a page and add this:

Yes, I'm running Wikka.
I didn't think that the new page modification would be that simple, thanks.
It's early days yet and I'm still trying to get to grips with wikka. There are a lot of modifications that I would like to incorporate, but I'm not sure how to modify the code yet. How do you use includes for instance. Maybe a FAQ page would be helpful as a lot of the information is there but on many pages. I'm not criticising the site and I think wikka is great, I'm speaking as a newbie here.

I originally started with Wakka and was interested in what TomG on the wakka site was doing. He had modified the code to handle Admin Groups and lots more.
Since then, the wakka pages have disappeared, re-appeared and disappeared again.

Thanks again

Not yet, but it's gonna support multiple language encodings in the future (have a look here: ) ;-)
Just stay tuned...

geez, I don't know about it not being able to use chinese....when I googled recently I found a few sites using wikka that had both chinese/asian language menus and *pagenames*....idiotically I didn't bookmark any of 'em and I was just looking and couldn't find them again. grrrr. You could snoop around and see if you can find one of those and then contact the authors. Hope that helps.

Mike, it's Chinese (using gb2312 charset, not UTF-8) - but it looks like they are using ASCII pagenames; I just see a few forced links which generate link descriptions in Chinese.

Note: gb2312 is "Simplified Chinese" - mostly used in mainland China and Singapore; "Traditional Chinese" has a corresponding charset GB5 and is mainly used HongKong and Taiwan. - see for instance "Distribution and use" on

JW: ya....thanks. Us north americans are often quite unaware of non-north american issues and "simplified chinese" is a new one on me. interesting. I noticed when looking at this that we don't have a page listing wakka forks. citiwiki, comawiki, wikini, coocoowakka, uniwakka, wacko, etc.....should we have them listed anywhere?? Also, I note that whereas other forks (like comawiki) that use have their "comments" come up as well in the listing, we do not (undoubtedly because of the re-structuring of our database to remove comments from the pages table) this an issue that needs looking at?

I accidentally changed a page and want to change it back to what it was. I know the original page has not been overwritten because I can see it in the page history. How can I roll the change back without recreating the page?

See - this might be BTW a good candidate for our F.A.Q.
