Site Administration

Last Updated: Jun 04, 2015 11:03PM BST
As site administrator, you can visit any wiki and see any page, and you get to decide how your Wikispaces Private Label site is going to work for your organization. These are the tools that will make that easy.


1. Site Administration

Where to find it:
Click on the Site Administration link on the sidebar of the site home page.

What it lets you manage:
Site permissions
Look and feel of your site
User accounts
All wikis, including look and feel, access permissions, and members
Messaging system
Your subscription and payment options

How it helps:
This is the portal to your administrative control. Whenever you want to manage your users, wikis, or site, you’ll start here.


2. The Dashboard

Where to find it:
It’s the first link on the Site Administration page as well as the landing page.

What it lets you view:
New users
Page edits
Message posts
Wikis edited daily
Wikis created daily

How it helps:
Your dashboard gives you a snapshot of who is using your site and how they’re using it. It’s a good way to keep tabs on whether you’re getting the participation you hoped for, and for looking at ways to improve it. You can download any data on this page in .csv (comma separated value) format.
 

2. Subscription

Where to find it:
It’s the third link on the Site Administration page.

What it lets you do:
Check your plan details
Make a payment at any time
Review your subscription history
Change your pricing
Generate a quote or invoice

How it helps:
You can make a payment for your Private Label site any time within your free 30-day trial. We accept payments by credit card, PayPal, check, or bank transfer. Contact us at help@wikispaces.com with any payment questions.

3. Users

Where to find it:
It’s the second section on the Site Administration page.

What it lets you do:
Find a user account by username or email address
Edit the user's password, email, or messaging preferences
Suspend, delete, or rename an account
Promote an account to site administrator
Create accounts in bulk
Message all of your site's user accounts

How it helps:
From here you can create, approve, delete, and manage users individually or in bulk. Switch from one year’s class to other, or add a new team or vendor to your site. And, when you feel like you need a little more help, you can promote any individual or bunch of users to site administrators.


4. Wikis

Where to find it:
It’s the third section on the Site Administration page.

What it lets you do:
Delete or rename a wiki
See a wiki's status and permissions
Find more details on the wiki's creator
Create templates for wikis

How it helps:
As more and more users start creating their own wikis, you can come here to keep track of wikis as they are added and changed. Simple reports let you know which wikis are the newest and which are getting the most attention. You can set up wiki templates to copy all of the pages, files, and settings (with the exception of individual page permissions) from your successful wiki into as many new wikis as you want. When users accidentally delete their wikis, you can come here to restore them. And the bulk delete option lets you clear out the wikis from last year’s class or last quarter’s projects easily.


5. Settings

Where to find it:
It’s the fourth button on the Site Administration page.

What it lets you do:
Set access and permissions for the entire site
Establish one visual theme for the whole site, or let every wiki set its own theme
Manage the Home wiki for your entire site
Change your domain name
Enable SSL encryption for your site

How it helps:
This is one of the most important areas on your site. Make your entire site private by requiring users to sign in. Limit wiki creation and private messaging on your site or open up these options to your community. The Home Wiki (www) settings can also be accessed from the Settings link (while on the Home wiki) and these settings will affect the landing page where users first enter your site.
 

6. Look & Feel

Where to find it:
It’s the last section on the Site Administration page.

What it lets you do:
Establish one visual theme for the whole site, or let every wiki set its own theme
Change the site-wide stylesheet
Customize our default text in certain areas

How it helps:
This is where you come to make your site your own. Brand your site with a custom theme and make changes to the stylesheet that will affect every wiki's page content on your site. The Content Manager allows you to customize areas such as the Sign-In page to give specific instructions or tailor an error page message to help users who have may have taken a wrong turn on your site.
