Troubleshooting and other common questions on the wiki
This GroupCamp FAQ article presents troubleshooting and other common questions on the Wiki application.
For all questions on the rich text editor of the Wiki please refer to this FAQ.
What happens if I lose my Internet connection while in edit mode on a wiki page?
Your changes to a wiki page are saved regularly and automatically. If you lose your internet connection, your latest changes cannot be saved. The Save button will appear as greyed and will not be active. In that particular situation, do not close the edit mode of the page. Copy paste your changes in a separate local document so as not to lose your latest changes.
Can I insert images and videos in pages of the Wiki application?
You can insert links to images or videos which are displayed on a public website.
For instance inserting the following HTML code with a public link to an image file will display the file:
<img src= "http://www.example.com/static/images/imagefile.png" />
Can I have multiple users working on the Wiki application? Is a user notified if there are conflicting edits?
Conflicting edits are managed per page. You can therefore have multiple users working on the Wiki application on different pages.
If you edit a page being updated by another user, the Wiki application will present a warning message.
What is an HTML page export in the Wiki application? How can I save or archive pages of the Wiki app?
An HTML export of one or more pages allows you to extract pages and insert them into a website or for example another Wiki.
Exporting all pages of the Wiki application is a good way of archiving all your document data.
What is the maximum size of a page in the Wiki application? How many pages can I have in the Wiki application?
The maximum size is around 80KB in source mode. This limit is set to avoid having browser memory issues when you are in editing mode.
Every 30 seconds the Wiki application verifies whether a page is below the size limit. Please note that if you use copy/paste extensively, you are bound to reach the limit rather quickly.
The number of pages in the Wiki application is not limited. Storage is the only limit. Please note that the Wiki storage is counted in the quota for your plan.
